One of the most highly anticipated rock albums of the decade has been released much to the elation of the music press and fans across the globe. BangTower is a progressive musical alliance featuring legendary bassist Percy Jones, who is best known for his work with Brand X, a band that also featured Genesis legend Phil Collins. Along with Jones, the power-prog trio also includes Grammy winning guitarist/engineer/producer Neil Citron. Walter Garces, who also performs with '60s psychedelic marvels The Electric Prunes, rounds off the trio with his skillful drumming and percussion work. Their maiden voyage entitled 'Casting Shadows,' was produced by Neil Citron (who also engineered, mixed and mastered) and Jon Pomplin and was released internationally by Declassified Records in late September, 2010.
With Percy's unmistakable fretless bass sound percolating next to Walter's harmonic cannons and implements of percussive wonder, an edgy yet incredibly dreamy, otherworldly texture becomes prominent throughout the mix. Neil's unique guitar work takes full advantage of this partnership by blending gorgeous chordal interludes, amazing melodic passages interlaced with scathingly insane soloing. The key element in this “trio of masters" music can be best described with one word; rapport. credits released September 28, 2010
