Testament guitarist, Eric Peterson and Canadian celtic metal singer, Leah have premiered a new song that they recorded together titled “Winter Sun.” Dragonlord members, Alex Bent, Tilen Hudrap, and Lyle Livingston also contributed to the track, which you can hear below, courtesy of Loudwire.
Peterson issued the following statement:
“Leah and I orchestrated the vocals, drums, guitars and bass by leaving each other voice messages that you can record and can leave/make decent recordings of clips of music through WhatsApp. Also, the sound quality is sharp enough that you can actually hear the dynamics well. It’s truly amazing! It’s a free app, so between Canada and Germany and Slovenia, that’s some savings for sure! Pretty awesome!”
“I’m so excited about how technology has changed the music industry. Suddenly people are able to collaborate from all around the world and produce incredibly high-quality material. The possibilities are endless. Even something as simple as an app on a smart phone has completely revolutionized the way we write music.” Describing her personal experience, she continued, “As a busy artist and mother of five kids, it was vital for me to be able to quickly record my vocal and lyric ideas and literally sing them into WhatsApp and fire it off to Eric in seconds. It made this song entirely possible.”
