Australia's Greyston Canyon premiered the new single "Astral Plane" over at Heavy Mag at this location, or simply by checking it out in the player above. The song appears on the upcoming debut album "While The Wheels Still Turn," which drops via Rockshots Records on March 9th for Europe, U.S.A and Canada along with the Australian release on Hellfire Records on March 12th.
Inspired by legends like Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth and King Diamond, “While The Wheels Still Turn” is an album devoted to the love for old western cowboy films and the images these films conjure, the vast plains, endless horizons and the freedom of the Wild West.
As vocalist/guitarist Darren Cherry proudly states. “We really wanted to make an album similar to old Ozzy Osbourne record where songs like ‘I Don’t Know’ and ‘Goodbye To Romance’ can sit comfortably. This is music from the heart and soul!” On the song, the band commented: "There are a number of different topics, which I believe will be interpreted by anyone digging the album. 'Astral Plane' is about staying connected to our friends and family after they have passed into the afterlife. I think it gives people comfort to think about those they have lost and that we are in some way still connected. Musically, this song crashes in with a Deep Purple meets Megadeth vibe. Huge drum rolls and ripping guitars. This is 70's rock meets speed metal. The riffs are HUGE, the drums are HUGE, shredding solos and a big chorus. We hope this track will leave the listener wanting to hear more."
The track listing for the album is:
1. Keeping Company With The Dead 2. Astral Plane 3. In These Shoes 4. Cinco Cuerda Bandito 5. Take Us All 6. Sombrero Serenade 7. River of Fire 8. Path We Stray 9. The Sun Sets
