ROADRUNNER UNITED – THE ALL-STAR SESSIONS, 57 ARTISTS, 45 BANDS, 19 TRACKS, 4 TEAM CAPTAINS. 1 GROUNDBREAKING ALBUM Roadrunner Records has put together a groundbreaking record to mark the label’s 25th Anniversary. The group is called Roadrunner United and the album titled The All-Star Sessions. This full length release, in stores on 10th October, 2005, is a ‘master-class’ in hard rock/metal. Boasting 57 artists from 45 of Roadrunner’s past and present bands, the album will contain original tracks that are collaborations between numerous Roadrunner stars. Four central musicians were originally chosen to produce and write the songs. Joey Jordison (Slipknot), Dino Cazares (ex-Fear Factory/Brujeria), Robert Flynn (Machine Head) and Matthew Heafy (Trivium). These four musicians play on the songs they have written and have also assembled a unique team of artists to appear on each track. In order to cover as wide a spectrum as possible, no musician has played for more than one writer/producer and each song features a different vocalist. In addition to these stellar teams of musicians, there will also be special additional tracks from ex-Roadrunner artist, Josh Silver – Type O Negative’s longtime producer / keyboardist. In the spirit of the project, Silver has included Roadrunner artists on his tracks as well. Opeth’s Mikael Akerfeldt appears on the Silver-written “Roads.” Track names from the Jordison team include: “Constitution Down” (with vocals by Kyle Thomas of Floodgate) “Tired ‘N Lonely” (with vocals from Keith Caputo of Life of Agony) “Annihilation By The Hand Of God” (with vocals from Glen Benton of Deicide) among others. Flynn’s camp has completed songs like: “The Dagger” (with vocals from Howard Jones of Killswitch Engage) “The Rich Man” (with vocals from Corey Taylor of Slipknot) among others. Team Cazares tracks include: “The End” (with vocals from Matt Heafy of Trivium) “The Enemy” (with vocals from Mark Hunter of Chimaira) And tracks from Heafy’s sessions include: “The Dawn of a Golden Age” (with vocals from Dani Filth of Cradle of Filth) “Superheroes” (with vocals from Michale Graves of The Misfits) “Blood and Flames” (with vocals from Jesse Leach – ex-Killswitch Engage singer).
