Check out the Avalon Live trailer below:
The seeds for Avalon were planted back when Erna was in pre-Godsmack outfit Strip Mind, discovering Australian world fusion band Dead Can Dance’s 1993 album Into the Labyrinth. Their “eclectic, mystical, hand drumming” approach filtered into Godsmack hits like “Voodoo” and “Serenity.” From there, an organic process of assembling the right musicians began. Erna recruited Dead Can Dance percussionist Niall Gregory and long time friend and blues vocalist Lisa Guyer, each of whom introduced the guitarists, keyboardists and cellists that would fill out Avalon’s diverse sound.
