Product Notes

A storytelling power metal project primarily based in upstate New York. Formed in 1988, by the trio musician/songwriting team of; Mark G David, Chuck Woodard, and Paul G Warrior. Kyrie Ellison's sound was cut from the mid-1980 progressive metal movement cloth. Influenced heavily by artist like Fates Warning, Queensryche, Crimson Glory, Hittman, Savatage, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, NWOBHM, and thrash/speed metal bands of the 80s. The band spent three years warming up national metal acts locally and never made it passed the demo phase. As metal surrendered to grunge in the early 90s; Kyrie Ellison disbanded in November 1991. Co-founding member, Mark G David teamed up with guitar virtuoso: Mike Campese. Mike's rock fusion style was a nice fit for Mark's busy basslines and the two have been performing live together since 1999. Chuck kept musically active in various projects (most notably: vocals for Kid Bludo's debut release, 'Up & Away.') 2013, brought Mark, Chuck, and Paul together again for the sole purpose of completing a long overdue Kyrie Ellison debut album. Recorded in various locations throughout 2014, Kyrie Ellison - Untold Stories: The Scriptures Of Sadness will be released in January 2015. Demo songs were reworked from the original 1990 demo and new songs written to complete the 10 song record. Vocals were handled by session vocalist: Chad Wagner (Born2Rule.) Drums tracks were provided by (long-time friend) Jason Bittner (Flotsam and Jetsam, Toxik, and Shadows Fall) and Mark Zonder (Fates Warning, Warlord, and Chroma Key.) Guitar solos were also added from guitar virtuosos: Mike Campese and Chris Caffery (Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra.) What's in the name? Nothing, it's based on the fictional story of a 17th century fortune-teller. The name was created or deranged from the Fates Warning song "Kyrie Elieson" by Paul "Warrior" Joseph and etched in the Kyrie Ellison song (Foreseen Destiny) lyrics and story by Mark G David. Metal bands need a haunting cover/image and a good story for writing future lyrics around, so why not create your own!
