Dan Lorenzo ( HADES, NON-FICTION, THE-CURSED) has recently teamed up with Nathan Opposition ( Ancient VVisdom) to form a musical project called: Vessel of Light.
The two will record their debut EP this summer in Cleveland.
Guitarist Dan Lorenzo said, “I really haven’t played guitar too often over the decade since Blitz ( Overkill) and I released The Cursed Room Full of Sinners cd in 2007. I’ve had a few bands ask me to join them, but that has never really interested me. Back in December, I went to Austin and before I arrived I was Googling ‘Stoner rock’ or ‘Doom bands from Austin’ or something like that and I came upon the video for Ancient VVisdom’s “The Opposition“. I literally watched the video about twenty times over the next couple of days. I have a Jesus tattoo. I met the Pope. I go to church and the lyrics were not what I’m into, but I couldn’t deny it was one of the catchiest vocal lines I’d ever heard in my life. Then I listened to their song “Deathlike” multiple times. I decided to write about the band ( in NJ’s Steppin’ Out magazine) and I mailed Nathan Opposition (Ancient VVisdom’s singer) a magazine and I think an old Hades cd. We started communicating by email and then on the phone. I had no intentions of asking him to write with me because my musical career is long over. I’m considerably older than him and I honestly wasn’t playing guitar much, but when Nathan asked me if I wanted to write together I couldn’t say no. ”
Nathan Opposition said, “Lorenzo and I became friends due to my inability to not be susceptible to flattery . Turns out he’s a really cool guy who writes awesome riffs too. Randomly one day I ask him about the band we are starting in joking fashion. I guess it was the right timing and the right person because we immediately agreed we should actually start a project . Before I knew it he was sending me CDs of riffs and I had lyrics flowing like a faucet. ”
Lorenzo will handle all guitars and bass on the recordings and Opposition will play drums and sing all vocals.
