Recently departed from Vital Remains, vocalist frontman Brian Werner has formed a new band called 93, featuring Tim Yeung (Morbid Angel, Divine Heresy) and Matt DeVries (Chimaira, Fear Factory). They are joined in the group by Rithiya Khiev and Chris Joao. Check out a teaser now!
“This project has been in the works behind the scenes for quite sometime now,” says Werner. “I had been extremely unhappy in VITAL for a while and wanted to get back to when music was fun actually create music and releasing albums.
“It’s an honor to be working with all of these dudes who are all first-class players but more importantly we’re all brothers first. We already have over a dozen songs written and hoping to get into the studio by early next year.”
Explaining the 93 band name, Werner says: “‘Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law’ and ‘Love is the law, love under will.’ The two primary terms in these statements are ‘will’ and ‘love,’ respectively. In the Greek language, they are Thelema (Will) and Agape (Love). Using the Greek technique of isopsephy, which applies a numerical value to each letter, the letters of each of these words sum to 93.
