Drift Into Black Announce Official New Band Members from Chris Caffery’s Band and The Vicious Head Society!
Doom metal solo project from Grey Skies Fallen keyboardist, Craig Rossi, officially adds studio musicians Paul LaPlaca and Klemen Markelj as band members. Rossi has released 4 albums as Drift Into Black, doing vocals, guitars, and keyboards supplemented by guest appearances and studio musicians for bass and drum tracks.
Drift Into Black as a solo project is sometimes misunderstood to be a one-man-band. Rossi states, “My drummer Klemen Markelj and bassist Paul LaPlaca have always been a huge part in shaping the sound of Drift into Black, but now it’s official. They are members!”
LaPlaca is also a former member of Grey Skies Fallen and has played with Chris Caffery (Savatage/ TSO), Ted Poley (Danger Danger), and October Thorns. Merkelj is a highly accomplished drummer with over 100 album credits, including the well-received, The Vicious Head Society – “Extinction Level Event”.
“Patterns Of Light” is the latest release from Drift Into Black. This concept album tells the harrowing tale of a deaf/ mute girl who witnesses her mother’s murder at the hands of her step-father and her journey towards retribution.
Rossi is a prolific songwriter and tireless artist that has managed to release a new album nearly every year since this project’s inception, and is showing no signs of slowing down or stopping. Tracking for the next album, “EARTHTORN” is underway with a tentative release date for early 2022.
