Founding member and mastermind behind Elderoth, Collin McGee comments:
“Being influenced by far east Asian music, such as Japanese and Chinese, the creation of this album was very fun and interesting. We wanted to make something completely new and fresh for the ears to enjoy. It was quite a lot of work as well as a great learning experience. This album showcases the new and unique dynamics that Elderoth has. This has been the main goal of this album, and also this is something we wish to pursue in the future. We always like to add new interesting elements to our music. We decided to start using 8 string guitars on this album as well as these new influences. As well as trying to add new things to our music, we always wish to remain to have a catchy sound and make songs that are memorable.”
The band’s 2015 lineup features founding member Collin McGee on guitars and vocals with Xavier Sperdouklis on bass, Vincent Harnois on guitars and Jessy Normand on drums. Mcgee, the man behind the vision of Elderoth is the primary author, composer, lead guitarist, and singer. Through his years of being self-taught, studying music theory and composing endlessly, McGee has mastered composition on guitar and other instruments at a world-class level, along with writing lyrics and developing his vocals to a professional level that stands out in the audio mix both live and in the studio.
