Icon47 Voodoo Hill "Waterfall" set for October 2015 release

...one of many behind-the-scenes studio sessions Glenn has been working on this year, VOODOO HILL, "Waterfall", featuring Italian guitarist, Dario Mollo, will see a release via Frontiers Music Srl on Friday, October 16th, 2015 in Europe and North America.

VOODOO HILL is a collaborative effort between the Italian musician and legendary singer/bassist Glenn Hughes. The new album marks the first rock release from Glenn since the demise of the short lived power trio California Breed. The musical direction of this new album has a solid foundation in Hard Rock with some very melodic moments and diverse influences ranging from classic Deep Purple/Rainbow and Led Zeppelin to Van Halen.

Dario Mollo says, “I put a huge amount of work on this record, even though Glenn also helped a lot giving me a lot of suggestions for improvement. Glenn did an amazing job in songwriting/performing and I’ve never heard him so pleased about the results! I think this is the album we did together that suits his singing and style the most and in the end this truly became a team effort. Maestro Dario Patti did also a fantastic job arranging the orchestral parts in 2 songs. Every time I listen to the album a stupid smile appears in my face, so I just can’t wait to see people reactions!”

The new VOODOO HILL album – the third release from the musical alliance between Italian axeman and producer Dario Mollo and legendary former Deep Purple singer/bassist Glenn Hughes – is the culmination of a 30+ year career for Mollo as a musician, songwriter and producer. Dario Mollo’s career started in 1981 with the heavy metal band Crossbones and he continued to develop his abilities with musical giants like Tony Martin (Black Sabbath), Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group / Temple Of Rock), Don Airey (Rainbow, Ozzy Osbourne, Deep Purple) and several others. The Voodoo Hill albums with Glenn Hughes have always marked a special milestone in Dario’s career though.

With the acclaimed first Voodoo Hill album in 2000, Dario, for the first time, had the chance to have a proper international release, while the follow up album “Wild Seed of Mother Earth” is probably the heaviest and strongest release ever from Dario. Both releases came out via the Italian label Frontiers with whom Dario has built a strong relationship during the years.

The new record came about as a result “of the most prolific and creative period I had in my entire career” tells Dario. “I wrote and recorded more than 35 song ideas in a very limited amount of time, leveraging from all the experiences I gathered as a guitar player, writer and producer. This creative phase had a further development when Dario Patti (keyboardist, bass player and orchestra arranger) came into the picture. He brought the songs a new palette of sounds and some superb arrangements. I also wanted the songs to sound as fresh as possible, trying my best to preserve the feeling of the overall performances, so I used very old school recording methods, including recording acoustic drums in rooms with natural reverb.”

“It was right in the middle of this creative spring that Serafino of Frontiers called me to see whether I wanted to finally work on a third Voodoo Hill album after all these years,” continues Mollo. “He said Glenn Hughes was available in principle, so the next thing I did was to choose the 11 songs which I thought suited the project the best. In comparison to the previous albums, I wanted to have Glenn more involved in the artistic decisions, so I sent him the songs before the final mixes in order to have his advices on the final result. That was a precious process that brought substantial changes, for instance on “Last Door”, where I literally changed the entire guitar riff to make it work better with the vocal melodies. In the end the song was basically rewritten and dramatically improved. It was a fabulous creative process, which I am truly confident will last more than a bunch of listening sessions and will offer a lot of enjoyment to all those will want to follow Voodoo Hill in this exciting musical venture”.

“Waterfall” is a strong and straightforward hard and heavy rock album which is equally split between aggressive and heavy moments and beautiful melodies. A stunning release which all fans of hard rock and heavy metal truly won't want to miss!

“Waterfall” tracklisting includes: All That Remains; The Well; Rattle Shake Bone; Underneath And Down Below; Waterfall; Karma Go; Evil Thing; Eldorado; White Feather; Sunflower; Last Door.

That is really GREAT news. I firmly believe that the previous 2 Voodoo Hill records are as amazing as BCC, Deep Purple or most other releases from Glenn Hughes and a great showcase for his vocals.

If ONLY they would tour.

PS..and the best thing is Dario Mollo will find it difficult to quit on Glenn since it IS Dario's band!!!!!!

Love the stuff on the sample video. One of them sounds rather like Stargazer.

The only disappointment with the whole VH project is the lack of live shows. The songs don't ever make it in to Glenn's solo shows either.

As this is a "history" tour i really hope at least one track makes it onto the UK set list. Waterfall is released just as the UK tour starts so he could sneak a song in from the new album.
