Swedish guitarist and producer Ola Englund, and current member of The Haunted and Feared has recently released online a demo sample of a new track from his solo project Solar.
Ola Englund will perform at Musikmesse 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany this week to promote the launch of his signature Randall Satan amplifier and his signature Washburn Solar guitar series.
Commenting on the reasons behind the creation of Solar, Ola Englund said: “The idea with the project is for me to have an outlet of all my melodies and ideas that doesn’t really fit in any of the other bands I play in. I’m thinking of keeping it as an ongoing project with the ability to have different kinds of guest musicians contributing. But as of right now I don’t feel I have the production/mixing skills to take on a project like this so I feel that when I end up with doing a full album I would need to hire someone to do it.”
Regarding the new audio sample, the guitarist adds: “I’ve decided to release the demo of the first part for free to download. If you want to support you can put in an amount that you would want to donate when snagging the download. You will be contributing to more music being made. If budget allows try and make a full production with drums etc… for the full-fledged album.”
