MACHINES OF GRACE, the new band featuring drummer Jeff Plate (TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, SAVATAGE, METAL CHURCH), lead singer Zak Stevens (CIRCLE II CIRCLE, SAVATAGE), guitarist Matt Leff (guitar) and bassist Chris Rapoza (bass), will release its self-titled debut this summer.

"It's just a pure, solid melodic rock sound," Stevens says about the project. "It has infectious grooves and its own brand of outright power. To me, it's got great songwriting with a hard rock edge and strong commercial appeal."

Yeah, this band is Wicked Witch reunited, Zak and Jeff's pre-Savatage band. I knew this was going to happen for quite some time, but this is the first concrete information about it.
I will basically buy anything with Zak Stevens singing on it.

Oh, and "The Moment" sounds like King's X a bit, in a good way.
