9 CHAMBERS – Anytime I have a conversation with multi-instrumentalist and producer Greg Hampton, he will light up like the Time Square ball on New Years Eve when Classic Rock and Hard Rock is talked about. Greg has assembled a new band, a “supergroup” if you will, that has more reverence and experience in their Rock and Roll veins for that Classic Hard Rock sound than you can shake a Metal stick at. 9 Chambers makeup has four star musicians who know a thing or two about playing Classic Hard Rock, not to mention Heavy Metal as well. With 9 Chambers, it’s a Hard Rock venture that I’m eagerly anticipating.

Check out the lineup for 9 Chambers: Vocalist and guitarist Greg Hampton (Alice Cooper, The New Czars, Lita Ford), guitarist Ed Mundell (ex-Monster Magnet), Jorgen Carlsson on bass (Gov’t Mule) and Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Heavn & Hell, DIO) on drums. Whoa. Greg Hampton was not kidding around when he told me he was putting together a new band that would psyche out the Hard Rock community! It doesn’t get any more legit than this lineup… Metal be thy name. You can listen to 4 song samples from 9 Chambers by clicking here: 9 Chambers – Audio Samples

Greg Hampton is aiming for an August 2011 release date for the upcoming debut album from 9 Chambers, while negotiating a record deal with management. Greg states they have close to twenty songs written, so there are obviously many cool choices to be made for their debut album. Greg is enthused that he and Ed share common ground on what “old school” Rock music they both listen to, with Free, Armageddon and Captain Beyond, to name a few. The 1983 Black Sabbath release of Born Again has been getting worn out from playing in Greg’s car as of late too, further noting where his heavy music interest lies.

“Some guest drummers of recognition will be on board to finish off a few songs”, Greg added. On what to expect from the Hard Rock sound of 9 Chambers, Greg stated: “We wanted to stick to our original vision as to how the Hard Rock of 9 Chambers should sound, throw in a Soundgarden variable in the equation with both a 90’s and Crooked Vulture vibe to it. There’s a little Stoner vibe happening as well. This album is a lot less progressive than what I’ve done in the past. There are no synths or drum loops. It’s a purist approach of four guys playing Hard Rock”.
