Hailing all the way from New Jersey lies instrumental progressive metal act KALLIAS. The band recently released their latest single “The Fourth Phase”, and now they have joined us here at Gear Gods to premiere this full-band playthrough of that very track, featuring the absolute legend Rick Graham! What’s not to love? Check it!
For you gearheads out there (welcome to Gear Gods, by the way), here’s what the band is rocking:
- Nicole Papastavrou: EVH 5150iii Stealth, Liuteria Rox Kratos custom 8 string, Fortin ZUUL mini, Firehose Strap
- Zaki Ali: Peavey Invective, ESP LTD SC-208, Firehose Strap
- Chris Marrone: Warwick custom 6, F#
- John Paul Andrade: Mapex Saturn Exotic series, Dream Cymbals, Paiste Cymbals, Istanbul Agop
The song features some amazing playing all across the board by every member of the band, and the guest solo done by Rick Graham is downright nasty — definitely one that will take a few listens to comprehend and fully appreciate. The tune was also recorded, mixed, and mastered at Redshift Recording in New Jersey, and be sure to follow the band on Facebook for all future updates, tuneage, and general prog metal goodies.
