A little while ago, Michael Keene was left deserted, the sole member of his technical death metal band, The Faceless. Yesterday that changed, with the announcement that he was joined by none other than Justin McKinney, lead guitarist and creative force behind fellow techdeath band The Zenith Passage.
McKinney’s talent as both a songwriter and a guitarist clearly did not go unnoticed by Keene, the producer of The Zenith Passage’s upcoming album. Seeing as he also recently announced new material from The Faceless would be coming soon, a desire on Keene’s part to get a touring band back together seems a likely motivation behind this decision.
The Zenith Passage have confirmed through their facebook page that McKinney’s joining The Faceless will not have any effect on the speed of new music from The Zenith Passage, but will rather “give…more time and opportunities” to the band.
