V/A - A Crack In The Sky - A Tribute Τo William J Tsamis (Ltd / Gatefold) 2LP
A true hero of the Heavy Metal underground and beyond, the legacy of guitarist and composer William J Tsamis will forever be deeply intertwined with the name of WARLORD. In addition to his work with WARLORD, William J Tsamis also channeled his creativity into the lesser known, but equally potent and arguably more personal projects LORDIAN WINDS and LORDIAN GUARD.
"A Crack in the Sky" features brand new recordings of timeless classics covered by 16 bands, young and old, hailing from different parts of the world. Special mention must be made to the album’s liner notes which include a foreword by Mark Zonder along with brief statements by each participating band. Furthermore, a select few industry individuals and artists have been invited to share their thoughts about Bill Tsamis in a special "In Memoriam" section within the album's liner notes.
The album’s cover and artwork have been created by Remedy Art Design with photography kindly provided by Chris Del Grande. Mastering or additional mastering was handled by renowned producer Arthur Rizk.
