Sneak Peek at New Rik Emmett and RESolution9 Song


Founding member of the Canadian power trio Triumph, Rik Emmett, is set to release a new album with his band RESolution9, on November 11th. The album, RES 9, on the Provogue label, is a blues rock offering, that also ties in to the progressive influence Triumph put out, beginning 40 some years ago.

The closing track, “End of the Line”, features vocals from James LaBrie, of Dream Theater fame, and a solo from Rush guitarist, Alex Lifeson.

In Emmett’s words, “Here’s the Monster riff-rock, ‘epic’ album finale, with special guest vocalist James LaBrie of DT rippin’ it, as only he can, and Alex Lifeson of Rush offering one heroic solo, chock full of Kingly Lerxst-isms.  Killer work from the boys in the band Dave Dunlop, Steve Skingley, and Paul DeLong, with Paul’s thundering drum fills hammering everything into place at the end.  What a production. What a bee-yatch to mix. Kudos to Matt DeMatteo & Dave & Steve-o.  For those who love guitar solos, this one is headed straight for your wheelhouse.”
