Biography: Michael Gibbons to Release 5th Album Believe September 14th New York, NY: Famed speed metal and hardcore guitarist Michael Gibbons will release his fifth album, Believe, on September 14th. A Greenwich Village resident and New York native, Gibbons has dedicated Believe to the firemen and other civil servants who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 (for specific mentions, please visit Gibbons's website.) Believe delivers ten original tracks, exploring Gibbons's inner conflict ("November Pain," "The Traveler"), as well as the very public, pervasive conflict that has surfaced in the past three years ("Cognizance to Heroes." ) Michael Gibbons's impressive career as a guitarist spans twenty years, and includes highlights such as two major-label releases (off Profile Records with the band Leeway in '88 and '91), a music video premiere on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, and international tours supporting some of heavy metal's biggest acts. He has sold nearly 100,000 records to date. His melodic, yet cutting-edge guitar style has drawn comparisons to David Gilmore, Randy Rhoads, EVH, and Alex Lifeson. On May 3rd, 1982, at the age of 13, his life was forever changed when he saw Ozzie Osborne play at the Nassau Coliseum. Today, a more seasoned Michael Gibbons reveals, "The primary objective of my songs is to provide open-minded people with well-written, melodic music. Music for the selective person, so to speak." The independent artist asserts, "It's better music than the crap we've all been getting shoved down our throats these days." Gibbons is making plans to tour in support of Believe, although no dates have been confirmed at the present time. Believe will be available on CDBaby.com as well as his own website.
