We’re going a little complex with this premiere, a little cerebral. I’m pretty damn excited to bring the in-studio video premiere for Suhy, Silvergold & Alvarado as they perform their track “Malachite Dream”, which comes from their upcoming album Tessellations. If you’re into a fusion of progressive rock and jazz, much like the more modern King Crimson material, this is right up your alley!
Let’s give you a little information about each player, shall we?
Ray Suhy is an accomplished guitarist who performs with bands across a wide spectrum of genres and styles. He’s currently touring with Cannabis Corpse but has also performed with such artists as Allen Lowe, and Lewis Porter.
Alex Silvergold is 16 years old and is influenced by drummers like Gavin Harrison, Marco Minneman, Mike Mangini, and more. He’s shared the stage with Carmine Appice and Billy Sheehan.
Rolando Alvarado earned his music degree from NYU studying composition. He also spent nearly two years in Chile, where he worked extensively with saxophonist/composer Diego Manuschevich and played throughout the country.
Ray Suhy exclusively tells us:
“Malachite Dream” was the first piece written specifically for “Tessellations”. “Awakening” the main acoustic piece on the record, existed for a while without a home but “Malachite” is what really set the tone for the project. My goal for this record was to create something that had lots of dense and technical playing, but also had a emotional and cinematic atmosphere to it as well. The intro was added on after deciding to lead off the record with “Malachite”. I wanted to set up a sort of dream-like and hypnotic state before Rolando comes in with the bass line. I also wanted to feature Alex on this song and he plays a great solo over the main riff. “Malachite Dream” sums up a lot of the different styles and moods that are on the record and seemed like the best choice to start the record as well as being the first song that we’re premiering via Bloody Disgusting”.
