Sonic Elements XYZ - A Tribute To Rush (featuring Neil Peart Drums)
Listen to Sonic Reality's Neil Peart Drums in action and put to the test! The first music release from the Sonic Reality progressive rock project known as "Sonic Elements", XYZ - A Tribute To Rush is what you might call a "fantasy band" tribute in that it features drum tracks performed by Neil Peart, the legendary drummer and lyricist of Rush, which come from Sonic Reality's Neil Peart Drums sample sessions along with new performances from modern and classic rock artists such as Rik Emmett (Triumph), John Wesley (Porcupine Tree), Billy Sherwood (Yes, Circa), Alastair Greene (Alan Parsons Live Project), Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance), Matt Dorsey (Simon Collins) and Sonic Reality's founder Dave Kerzner (Kevin Gilbert, Simon Collins). XYZ is a music EP available on pre-order and downloadable from esoundz.com on 4-21-12 and after. The download comes as both high resolution mp3 and full resolution 16 bit 44.1 wave files, both formats can be downloaded at no additional charge. Additionally a limited run of CDs is available for those that want to buy it on a physical disc. It features a combination of creative covers of songs from the classic Rush album "Moving Pictures" plus bonus material written by Billy Sherwood and Dave Kerzner featuring Neil Peart Drums in a different musical context with a tip of the hat to their other progressive rock influences such as Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd and more!
