For years we’ve heard rumors of various big-name metal lead singers collaborating on an album, ala opera’s Three Tenors. Back around the year 2000, Trinity was a project that never got off the ground, which would have consisted of Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, and Geoff Tate, who had all been touring together at the time. I think we were all salivating over that project, especially after the Halford track “The One You Love To Hate”. The three of them would go on to perform the track together in concert.
Fast forward to 2018, and three metal singers that have been holding their own for years, and been part of some impressive bands over years have decided to pull the trigger on their own version of the three tenors, called the Three Tremors.
Here is a sample of the press info that was sent to us:
Three of metal’s greatest vocalists – Tim “Ripper” Owens (JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH, DIO DISCIPLES), Harry “The Tyrant” Conklin (JAG PANZER, SATAN’S HOST, TITAN FORCE), and Sean “The Hell Destroyer” Peck (CAGE, DENNER/SHERMANN, DEATH DEALER) – have united as the Three Tremors, and are releasing their much-anticipated self-titled debut on January 18, 2019.

Three Tremors album release promo
The album will include twelve original songs total (over 60 minutes of music), and features all three singers on every track. A blend of songs that cover all the different heavy metal styles, the album features some of the most incredible metal vocal performances ever put to tape. Also included is cover art by Marc Sasso (who has previously worked with the likes of Dio, Halford, Cage, and Adrenaline Mob), while the CD will feature a 16-track digi-book, packed with incredible visuals and artwork.
“We couldn’t be more fired up for the album to finally be released. We just got off our European tour and after playing the entire album live for 17 shows, we saw the reaction of the fans to these songs. It was incredible and so we have good reason to be excited for the rest of the metal world to experience this celebration of heavy metal!” – Sean
“This record is a throw-back to the glory days of heavy metal. It will make you feel like you are in high school again!” – Harry
“This is one for the true metal fans. I think this will exceed even their highest expectations. Great stuff!” – Ripper

Fresh off of a European tour of 10 countries to promote the release of the album (where the album was performed live in its entirety to rave reviews), the Three Tremors nourish in heavy metal anthems, and feature the illustrious chops of guitarist Dave Conan Garcia, whose tenacity fuels the fire, allowing the music to naturally flow in complimentary tone. Second guitarist Casey Trask picks up the pace and pushes the boundaries alongside bassist Alex Pickard, who highlights a melodic sensibility giving character to the overall tonality. On drums, the thrash machine Sean Elg adds in his perfectly placed fills and signature double bass patterns.
And in 2019, metalheads will finally get to hear what will undoubtedly be one of the most vocal-heavy metal releases of all-time, by the Three Tremors.
