As mentioned almost to this day, a year ago in last year’s year-end, the emphasis was what was ahead in 2018. As we close 2018, here is some of what last year’s wrap was talking about in this year-end wrap:
–RAMP signed a deal with Jukin Media. The guys have written for various Jukin projects that currently grace the internet.
-While Chester Rushing was writing new material for his next album, he sang on some sessions to be used in commercial trailers. In fact, RAMP’s Jonathan Clark sang on a track, as well. No word yet on when these clips will be released.
-In more Chester news, Hulu’s All Night dropped in May, as well as other streaming and film projects, Deadwax (Shudder), Monster Party and The Haunting on Fraternity Row.
-Kane Churko had a cut each on the Five Finger Death Punch greatest hits album A Decade of Destruction and And Justice For None. Kane also had cuts with Halestorm and Memphis May Fire.
As far as other notable moments, Kane had a number one with his mix of Bad Wolves’ “Zombie.” The track went gold in Canada.
Cadium signed writer/producer, Shawn McGhee. McGhee has two co-writes on the new Hyro The Hero album, Flagged Channel. One of the co-writes, “Bullet,” is the lead track and currently getting airplay on Mainstream Rock stations. McGhee co-wrote and produced the upcoming 9Electric album, due in March 2019. He also has multiple co-writing projects in progress.
Cadium also signed former Lynch Mob bassist, Anthony Esposito. Esposito co-wrote the new Red Dragon Cartel album, Patina, and is in the band.
And that’s the year-end wrap.
