3 - CREATION'S END - A NEW BEGINNING - (CD) 
SENSORY


Creation's End is the vision of New York City's Rudy Albert (guitar - from Zandelle) and Dario Rodriguez (drums).Rudy and Dario, who met in school, have been playing music together since 1999. As they grew tighter in theirplaying, they began to focus on writing original material. The nature of the material evolved from simple metal tunesin the early years, to more complex and mature compositions.During the summers of 2003 through 2006, Dario and Rudy convened to write music. The focus of the sessions wassimply to make great music that they both enjoyed, and each summer, Rudy and Dario wrote and recorded a newdemo of original material.Rudy soon took on keyboard duties in the band Until Destiny, where he met John Macaluso (drummer of JamesLaBrie Band, Fool's Game, ex-Ark, ex-TNT, ex-Yngwie Malsteen). After a short period of time, Rudy and Dario decidedthat the time was right to revisit their old material to record and release it the right way. With a newly renovatedstudio and producer John Macaluso on board, Rudy and Dario set out to record 8 reworked versions of songs thatappeared on their demos. They were joined by the lineup - Mike Dimeo, (ex-Masterplan, ex-Riot), Marco Sfogli(James LaBrie Band), and Joey Bones (Chris Caffery, ex-Zandelle).In Summer of 2010 the band decided to have world known engineer Neil Kernon (Queensryche, Yes, Nile, CannibalCorpse etc) mix the album. November 2010 will see the release of "A New Beginning" and marks the fruition of thealbum envisioned from the beginning - melodic, touches of prog, a strong sense of groove, and brutally heavy anddark. US and European tour dates are being planned, with a date at ProgPower USA in September 2011 alreadyconfirmed.
