Gloriously, he has now returned with a brand new band, Death Penalty, and an eponymous debut LP that once again proves his absolute mastery of the form. With such a formidable reputation to uphold, it was absolutely vital for Gaz to select the right musicians to work with in his new band. Although resident in Belgium, Michelle and Cozy were simply the right people for the job and kindred spirits that Gaz suspected would be perfect for helping him to realize his new musical vision.
With the Death Penalty lineup completed by the addition of another Belgian, bassist Raf Meukens, Gaz was now fully equipped to bring his new band into the spotlight, LP. The real meat of the matter will be unveiled upon the release of the band's self-titled debut album, a triumphant tour-de-force of pounding heaviness that brilliantly encapsulates everything that Gaz has brought to the table with Cathedral while veering off on a number of new and Grotesque Horizon - Death Penalty (3) - Death Penalty (Vinyl compelling tangents along the way.
The final piece of the puzzle slotted neatly into place when Gaz chose a name for the new band. Anyone that has followed the guitarist's career over the years will recognise that Death Penalty is the title of Witchfinder General's classic debut album; a record that has long been an essential part of Gaz's inspirational armoury.
However, beyond paying homage to his childhood heroes, he freely confesses that the name was simply the first and only credible option and a telling alternative to the countless terrible band names currently doing the rounds.
Once Death Penalty's debut hits the shops and the nebulous world of online retail, of courseit seems highly likely that everyone from Cathedral fans and old school diehards to new school doom and psych rock admirers will celebrate the arrival of another truly great heavy metal band for the modern age.
