I sang on the new Fountainhead EP, ‘Reverse Engineering’ (coming August 5, 2016). Fountainhead is the alter-ego of guitar player/composer/producer Tom Geldschläger. Here’s his official announcement:
I´m very happy to anounce that one of my favorite “new” artists, Gabriel Riccio of The Gabriel Construct will appear as guest-vocalist on the upcoming Fountainhead-EP, called “Reverse Engineering”. Gabriel is an amazingly talented multi-instrumentalist, composer and singer and being the huge TGC-Fan that I am, I´m proud to have his unique skills and personality on the new record.
Currently operating from his studio in Berlin, Germany, Tom has appeared on countless records as a guitar player, arranger, producer, mixing-engineer and sometimes keyboard player. He’s recorded and toured with artists like Obscura, Ray Riendeau, Marco Minnemann, Jimmy Pitts, Hannes Grossmann, Christian Münzner, Nader Sadek, etc. and has been featured in various magazines around the globe, most recently “gitar plus” and “gitarre & bass”.
‘Reverse Engineering’ also features bassists Ray Riendeau (Halford, James Labrie), Jacob Schmidt (Defeated Sanity) and Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura, Alkaloid), drummers Derek Roddy (Nile) and Yatziv Caspi (Orphaned Land), and Matthias Preisinger (Von Eden) on keyboards, strings, and harp.
Here’s Tom’s playthrough video of the title track. I sang the choruses on this one (as well as the coda, which is not included in this video), while Dan Sander provides the screams:
Here’s an isolated snippet of the vocals & keyboards from the final chorus:
Here’s the video for the first single from the EP. This is the instrumental version, but I believe my vocal version will appear on a future release.
