Ben Woods, Luis Villegas and Mike Bennett release their latest masterpiece “VOLUME 3” September 19th on Flametal Records. For this release, a cabin was rented for 2 nights in the mountains of Big Bear California where BEN WOODS’ HEAVY MELLOW trio transformed it into a recording studio and recorded most of this release there. Hat’s off to Mike Bennett’s superb production skills and Luis Villegas’ mastering mastery.
Over the last few years, BEN WOODS’ HEAVY MELLOW have literally pioneered a new musical genre with flamenco guitar arrangements of heavy metal classics (a la “Flamenco Metal”) and have become fan favorites on the Monsters of Rock and several other cruises, including the Moody Blues Cruise and Yes’ Cruise To The Edge, as well as Hollywood’s famous new Jam Nights; Ultimate Jam at the Whisky a Go Go and Soundcheck Live at the Lucky Strike.
Building off their first releases,“VOLUMES 1&2”, they set a new standard for excellence with acoustic covers.
Whether it’s playing acoustic finger style Flamenco with dancers, or playing timeless Rock and Metal songs, Woods is the first and only musician to successfully combine real Flamenco and Metal.
Woods and his trio are a new breed of virtuoso Spanish Guitar fronted groups. In 2012 Woods, a master of authentic Flamenco guitar and famous for his fusions, created the genre- bending group HEAVY MELLOW with the help of Grammy nominated latin guitar master Luis Villegas and percussionist extraordinaire Mike Bennett (drummer for the Richie Kotzen Band), earning them an international reputation as the masters of Flamenco and Metal.
BEN WOODS’ HEAVY MELLOW’s new album “VOLUME 3” is available for download on iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.
