Drummer Carmine Appice and Guitarist Fernando Perdomo Team-Up For And "Energy Overload"

Drumming legend Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Cactus, Blue Murder) has come together with guitarist extraordinaire Fernando Perdomo for a new album of instrumentals titled "Energy Overload." The album was released back in September through Cleopatra Records an features thirteen tracks that the two artists had recorded, each in their own home studio.

The album kicks off with the funky beats of "Blow Speaker Boogie," as Fernando takes the lead with his energetic solos, while Appice keeps the pace going. Keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Sons Of Apollo) lends a hand on the title-track "Energy Overload," which rocks as hard and anything else on this new album. Finally, its Carmine Appice's turn to shine on the heavy drum breaks of "Rocket To The Sun," before these two artists take on Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed" with grace and honor, supported by the vocal contribution of singer Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd). Another gem on this album is the duo's spacey/funky instrumental cover of Rod Stewart's "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy," which Appice co-wrote and performed on originally with Stewart for his 1978 album "Blondes Have More Fun." Fernando Perdomo and Carmine Appice close out their new album with the quick-moving pace of "Starstream," along with the powerful drumming of "Thunder" and a short reprise of "Blow Speaker Boogie."
