On September 14th Godsmack frontman Sully Erna debuts his new solo album Avalon.  The album – years in the making – is Erna’s personal masterpiece.  The songs, written throughout the years, were brought to life by Erna’s collaboration with an eclectic vagabond group of exceptional musicians that span from percussionist Niall Gregory (Dead Can Dance) to vocalist Lisa Guyer who fans may remember from her work on past Godsmack albums. 

The collection of songs, best described as tribal and hypnotic have several layers and each time you listen to them you hear something new from strings to piano to hand drumming.  Not exactly what one would expect from the tattooed frontman but Erna encourages fans to listen to Avalon with an open mind.  The album, rich in melodies and composition offers up a diverse range of sounds and evokes an array of emotions but overall it’s a true musical journey for the senses.

We recently had a chance to chat with local boy Sully about the making of the album, how it all came together, and what he hopes fans will take away from it.
