Ouijabeard Post Two New Songs Online

Ouijabeard is the name of the side-project of Dr. Ape, the vocalist of Dr. Living Dead. This is how he describes his latest project: “Dr. Living Dead is a band that I am involved in. Yes, that is correct. Dr. Living Dead is very important and so is Ouijabeard. I am Ouijabeard. That is no secret. Ouijabeard is me and a bunch of musicians that I like. This is a serious musical project. It is for real. A band is taking form when the the time is right. 90% of the album has been played by me. That is lead vocals, drums, rhythm guitar, bass and synthesiser. Solos and stuff like that were done by guest musicians.”

However, musically there is a big contrast between Dr. Living Dead and Ouijabeard: “The big influence for Ouijabeard is Grigorij Rasputin, the ‘Mad Monk’, as well as ‘The Elder’ by Kiss, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. It’s not a Thrash Metal record by any stretch of the imagination. It is Rock! Basically I wanted to create something I’ve wanted to do for some time. A ‘Space Rock Opera’!”
