Tommy Vext Talks About How His Accident Gave Birth To 'Impermanence' & Apologizes To Dino Cazares!

Tommy Vext (ex-Divine Heresy & Snot) has a brand NEW project called VEXT. If you haven't heard it yet you might want to give your ears a chance to listen to a very fresh approach that is the result of Tommy's union with former members of MUTINY WITHIN and guitar monster Angel Vivaldi (listen below). The bands debut EP is called 'Impermanence' and its set to be released on July 3rd via all digital outlets.

Recently, the band presented their brand NEW sonic assault at their CD release show in New York City's Sullivan Hall. While the weather wasn't ideal for a Tuesday night show, the masses showed up ready to party and VEXT presented them with the perfect soundtrack.

'Impermanence' was mixed by Chris Clancy (formerly from Mutiny Within) at Colin Richardson's studio in the UK. The musical direction of the band combines elements of Pantera, Alice In Chains and Tool, but Tommy makes it clear that it is something NEW and risky. For the production of Tommy's vocals, the band were lucky enough to count with Disturbed's frontman David Draiman who coached Tommy throughout the entire process. Additionally, Tommy is an alumni from vocal coach Melissa Cross (considered the best in the business).

Once VEXT finished feeding the masses with their unique blend of music, we sat down to chat with Tommy about the inspiration behind 'Impermanence' and how his health scare in 2010 influenced his NEW musical project. He also publicly apologized to Dino Cazares (FEAR FACTORY, DIVINE HERESY & ASESINO) in hopes to patch up his relationship with the "riffmanufacturer" within the near future. Check it out our exclusive interview with Tommy and spread the word!
