Truth In Shredding has reported on the new Ben Kuzay cd 'Stream Of Consciousness'!
In August, 1998, at the young age of 18, I moved from the countryside to the big city to pursue my dream. 300 concerts, 8 albums, and a whole slew of tours later, I celebrate the fulfilling journey that it's been, and look forward to many more years to come.
Ben Kuzay has released his new solo album Stream Of Consciousness today, August 11, 2018. This album features an all-star line-up of guests, including: Jimmy Pitts (PITTS/MINNEMAN, SPASTIC INK, THE FRACTURED DIMENSION), Jim Dofka (LEATHER LEONE), Darin Moore (DARIN MOORE MAELSTROM), Kirk Tatnall (TATNALL/GRASSEL SUPERAXE TRIO, ALPHA TRANSIT), and Daniel Kuzay (BEN KUZAY BAND).
About the new cd, Kuzay had this to say: "I feel that this is my finest work, and surpasses any of my previous cds by a wide margin. I did a better job as producer than I did on my previous efforts. As time and experience mounts over the years, accompanying it is clarity of vision and determination to bring that vision into being." Stream Of Consciousness was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Spencer Fox at No Passenger Studio, a mobile facility based in Madison, Wisconsin. Kuzay has previously worked with recording engineers Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, DEICIDE, DROWNING POOL, MONSTROSITY) and Joel Wanasek (MACHINE HEAD, DOPE, TRAPT).

Our debut album 'Reveries From The Haunted' was released the day before yesterday! It is available on cd or download here. Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles ran a story on the album's release. We released our first single "Broken" a week ago, and it is streaming here.
Happy New Year!
The title of the new Ben Kuzay cd is Stream Of Consciousness! I have been in the studio since November, 2016 recording this album. We have mixed about half of the cd, though there are a couple of tracks that have not begun to be tracked yet; so, all-in-all, I'd say that we're about 2/3 of the way finished with the tracking and mixing. The reason it is taking so long is that I have been performing live and/or in the studio in several other projects (a couple of which have not yet been announced) during this time, as well. Yes, 2017 was an action-packed year for me!
2017 saw me singing publicly for the first time both on a cd release and in live performances, in Cognition!
It also saw me playing in the first cover band I've ever played in. Unbeknownst to me for the first two months I was in the band, the guitarist had not played a show in 8 1/2 years, so he was not in a mindset to perform live; thus, we only played two shows. Those were great experiences for me, though.
I got to play in a project with Matt Thompson of King Diamond!
I did two mini-tours of my one-man instrumental show of my namesake, as has become tradition for me. These were very successful, as always. I also performed quite a few local instrumental shows.
Realm Of Glass' debut album 'Reveries From The Haunted' will be released on January 17th!
Ben Kuzay Stream Of Consciousness will be released in spring or summer!
