In other news, PROJECT TERROR will be joined by CRIMSON GLORY guitarist Ben Jackson will for their upcoming appearance at the South Texas Rock Fest.
Says Stixx: “Ben has joined forces with us and we are very excited to have on broad with us we are looking forward to sharing the stage with at this year’s South Texas Rock Fest, scheduled for Saturday, October 13th at Sunken Gardens in San Antonio, Texas.”
PROJECT TERROR‘s current lineup is completed by bassist Joseph Benjamin and drummer Mark Reyes.
Regarding the band’s decision to change its name from BLOOD REDSKIES to PROJECT TERROR, Stixx previously said, “After fours years of establishing the name BLOOD REDSKIES, I know people are saying, ‘What the hell?’ Well, I thought long and hard about the name change even though I love the name BLOOD REDSKIES. I even named the band after a song I wrote. But at the end of the day, I just wasn’t really happy with it.”
He added, “I have always wanted to call the band PROJECT TERROR after a local sci-fi/horror TV show from 1970 which originated in my hometown San Antonio, Texas. As a kid, this show would scare the hell out of me. Through the years, I knew I wanted that name for a band. The name fits the new energy and direction in which the band is going.”
PROJECT TERROR‘s music is described in the band’s official bio as “a great blend of European and U.S. power metal, with catchy riffs [and] strong vocal melodies . . . in the vein of DIO, TNT, HALFORD, SAXON and PRIMAL FEAR.”
