Tourniquet‘s Ted Kirkpatrick is a pro. Beyond being one of the most talented drummers in all metal music, he can also gather musicians like no other. The new Tourniquet album is a project from Kirkpatrick that includes special guests on every track. (Lookout for a Heaven’s Metal Reunion. Doug?) Check out the title track, “Onward to Freedom,” featuring Stryper‘s Michael Sweet and For Today‘s Mattie Montgomery on vocals.

Other musicians include Dug Pinnick (King’s X), Bruce Franklin (Trouble), Marty Friedman (Megadeth), Kevin Young (Disciple) and of course, longtime Tourniquet vocalist, Luke Easter. Trust me, that’s only the start of the list.
