Last year, noted guitarist, composer (and Guitar World columnist) Adrian Galysh announced Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition, a re-recording of his 1998 debut album, Venusian Sunrise.
Today, GW has teamed up with Galysh to premiere his updated version of "The Blue Jungle," one of the album's standout cuts. You can check it out below.
“Venusian Sunrise was recorded in my parents' basement on a single Alesis 8-track ADAT recorder," Galysh said. "While the performances were the best I could do with limited resources at the age of 22—it lacks the richer guitar tones, huge advances in recording technology and realistic orchestral sounds of today, but most importantly, it lacks real drums!”
“The new version of Venusian Sunrise will be performed and recorded the way I wished could have done back then," Galysh adds, "but with the tools and know how that didn’t exist at the time."
You can find out more about Venusian Sunrise: 20th Anniversary Edition—which is set for a July 10 release—through Galysh's PledgeMusic campaign for the album, which you can check out here. To preorder the album, step right this way.
