Control Denied, the prog metal side project of Death singer/guitarist Chuck Schuldiner, has confirmed work on a sophomore album, the follow up to 1999’s The Fragile Art Of Existence. Work was being done on the album in 2000 but stopped when Schuldiner passed away from brain cancer. Now, guitarist Shannon Hamm and producer Jim Morris are going over the recordings for a potential 2013 release. The follow-up will be entitled When Man And Machine Collide.
Schuldiner’s mother, Jane, previously stated that Chuck’s “…last masterpiece deserves more than to be released as unfinished bits of rehearsal room recordings on CD, or to be grabbed for free on the Internet. It deserves to be finished by the rest of the band and to be released on a full-length album, titled: When Machine And Man Collide.”
Alright Schuldiner fans, is this something you’d want to hear or has too much time gone by? Would you even want to hear it now for fear that it might not live up to your expectations?
