Lamb of God‘s Mark Morton will issue his first solo album, Anesthetic, on March 1, and the tracks that he is releasing from the effort are promising.
The newest music to come from the album is “Saving Defiance,” a track that features vocalist Myles Kennedy from Alter Bridge and Slash Featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators fame, along with Alice in Chains’ Mike Inez on bass and Korn’s Ray Luzier on drums.
Myles was our first and only choice for “Save Defiance.” He’
s such a tremendous talent and a remarkably down-to-earth and humble dude. Even before the instrumental pre-production demo was finished, we knew we were going to ask Myles to sing on it. We felt like it was a perfect fit for his voice. He dug the track and made it his own. I’m grateful to have had the chance to work with him.
Having the opportunity to work with Mark was a really cool experience. I’d been a fan of his work with Lamb of God for a long time so I was honored when he asked if I wanted to sing on his record. Mark did a great job creating a track that would be inspiring for me to sing over. The first time I heard the music, a melody and lyric popped into my head. The creative process felt pretty effortless. I am really happy with how the song turned out overall.
