Guitarist Andy La Rocque—best known for his superb playing with King Diamond—has a new project in the works. Black is the name of the collaboration with former Black Sabbath vocalist Tony Martin and Hammerfall bassist Magnus Rosén. Here is the status of the venture, as quoted at Blabbermouth:

At this point I think we have the music written for about 7-8 songs, so we need 3-4 more songs and then we need to arrange it properly and we’ll be ready to start recording, hopefully end of summer/autumn.

Stay tuned.
