The reformed Nitro, featuring founding members Michael Angelo Batio and Jim Gillette, along with Lamb Of God’s Chris Adler, have confirmed that bass legend Victor Wooten has been recruited to record the bass on their new album. Details for that effort are expected to be revealed soon.
Wooten said the following:
“I’m so happy to be included as part of the new Nitro project. I’ve been a fan of Michael Angelo Batio for decades, [and] Jim Gillette and Chris Adler are just as amazing. They’re causing me to have to step up my game. Fans will be thrilled to hear what we are coming up with, I’m really excited about it!”
Adler also commented:
“I have been in awe of Victor for many, many years. His musical gifts, which are second to none, are matched by his ability to inspire. I am giddy, humbled and amazed to have the chance to share music with, and learn from, him. Hearing him play music—or even speak about playing music for that matter—is truly a gift. Playing this material with him is mind blowing, listening to what he brings to this is game-changing.”
“Victor is the best of the best! He is a legendary musician and the most amazing bass player I’ve ever heard. Beyond excited is an understatement. We can’t wait for everyone to hear what we’re coming up with.”
