For "Cotard Delusion," BENNY and BRIAN worked with Kelly Kereliuk (guitars), Siobhan Cronin (violins), Cory Paza (bass), Paul Lourenco (drums), Oli Herbert (guitars) and Satchel (guitars), full list of SYMPHINITY players is below. "Cotard Delusion" highlights SYMPHINITY's technical prowess with its rapid shredding over a delusionally charming melody. The nearly five-minute track ebbs and flows as it switches between guest guitarists Oli Herbert and Satchel. Listen to the song here.
"Working on SYMPHINITY has been one of the most musically challenging, yet gratifying experiences," says Benny Goodman. "Being able to take the music that is in my head and have it fully actualized by such talented players has been one hell of a ride."
"Getting to know and work alongside Oli Herbert has truly been one of the highlights of my life. It is not often you get to experience a player with such a savant-like ability...he was truly one of the most inspirational people I have encountered and what he taught me as a person, I carry with me every day. Oli always said that SYMPHINITY would be a part of his legacy and it's true because music never dies."
"It was my honor and privilege to add a small part to this album with so many amazing musicians on it," Satchel of Steel Panther adds. "It made me want to get better. And practice more. But I'm in Steel Panther and well... I have partying to do also."
SYMPHINITY is a true collaboration between the Goodman brothers and a staggering list of talented players. SYMPHINITY is a sound like no other...something in between a movie score, a shred metal band, and a Chopin prelude. SYMPHINITY is a project comprised of Benny Goodman (keyboards, guitars), Brian Goodman (keyboards, programming), Kelly Kereliuk (guitar), Cory Paza (bass), Paul Lorenco (drums) and Siobhan Cronin (strings; (Starset, Trans-Siberian Orchestra). Featured artists on the first album in a planned series include Oli Herbert (All That Remains), Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal (Sons of Apollo, Guns N' Roses), Jason Costa, Ethan Brosh, Satchel (Steel Panther), Angel Vivaldi, Conrad Simon, and Matthew LaPierre.
