Los Angeles heavy metal act Impellitteri has been enjoying the festival scene abroad this summer, including slots at Busan Rock Festival in South Korea, Bang Your Head Festival in Germany and Rock Fest Barcelona.
All the while, guitarist Chris Impellitteri has been shredding away on a Charvel Custom Shop Legacy Bloodsplatter guitar.
Watch below to enjoy some fan footage, including a surprising choice for a metal show in “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” in which Impellitteri really shows off his chops.
With a new album having come out on April 21 in North America called Venom, Impellitteri recently dropped a video for the track “We Own the Night.”
In it, guitar virtuoso Chris Impellitteri unleashes a blistering riff while singer Rob Rock’s vocals are as powerful as ever. Directed by John Logsdon, the clip was filmed at Mates rehearsal space in North Hollywood, Calif.
Venom is Impellitteri’s ninth studio album and follows 2009′s Wicked Maiden.
