Founding member of the Canadian power trio Triumph, Rik Emmett, is set to release a new album with his band RESolution9, on November 11th. The album, RES 9, on the Provogue label, is a blues rock offering, that also ties in to the progressive influence Triumph put out, beginning 40 some years ago.
In Emmett’s words, “Here’s the Monster riff-rock, ‘epic’ album finale, with special guest vocalist James LaBrie of DT rippin’ it, as only he can, and Alex Lifeson of Rush offering one heroic solo, chock full of Kingly Lerxst-isms. Killer work from the boys in the band Dave Dunlop, Steve Skingley, and Paul DeLong, with Paul’s thundering drum fills hammering everything into place at the end. What a production. What a bee-yatch to mix. Kudos to Matt DeMatteo & Dave & Steve-o. For those who love guitar solos, this one is headed straight for your wheelhouse.”
