About the new record: SOMETHING ABOUT THE SNAKE
“Something About The Snake” is an 18-song, hard rock masterpiece.
A template with Les Pauls, Marshalls, piercing vocals and tight drum & bass grooves paint a familiar rock picture, but the craft of the songwriting and the way the performances are aggressively delivered are refreshing and stand out from the din of today’s rock music.
Most of the tracks have a sinister edge to them. Some of the songs are a mixture of heavy, dark and angry moods with lyrics about past relationships and living the life of a Hollywood musician; other songs are a bit more satirical and tongue-in-cheek.
Seasoned listeners will no doubt hear traces of Guns n’ Roses, Van Halen, Alice in Chains, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Metallica and other legendary hard rock bands that influenced “Something About The Snake’s” unique sound.
With the exception of drums plus a couple of guest vocal parts Chris Sestric wrote, performed and engineered everything.
About Chris Sestric
Dedicated rock & roller Chris Sestric began working on his record “Something About The Snake” as a side project while playing in a host of Hollywood based bands, the longest tenures being with The Resistance and The Undead M.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA Chris is an accomplished musician, composer, songwriter and music producer. He has a bachelor’s degree from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA where he majored in Film Scoring and a secondary focus in Contemporary Writing & Production.
The heavy rock music of the early 90s was Chris’s most impressionable period. He sites Guns n’ Roses as his all time favorite band and hearing Steve Vai’s “Passion & Warfare “ as a life changing musical experience. While ignoring most mainstream music of the late 90s and early 2000s, Chris expanded his musicianship through the study of jazz and classical genres.
Since moving to Los Angeles Chris has worked as a music assistant to several Hollywood film composers on a per project basis, most notably Richard Gibbs. He has played guitar, sang and composed music for a variety of projects including film scores, jingles and music libraries.
Promoting “Something About the Snake” as well as creating music for the next record is now his main musical priority.
