CANNABIS CORPSE guitar player Ray Suhy, is now streaming a new play-through video of the new CANNABIS CORPSE track ‘Chronic Breed’ from their upcoming release ‘Left Hand Pass’. The video is streaming exclusively at Guitar World at the link below.

Watch the play-through for ‘Chronic Breed’ here.

Regarding the play-through, Suhy comments: “I’m stoked to be premiering the play-through of “Chronic Breed” on Guitar World! This was the last and definitely most challenging song I tracked for “Left Hand Pass”. It’s one of my favorites and encapsulates a lot of of what we were going for musically on this record. It’s got melodic tremolo picked parts, heavy riffs, dissonant passages that help build tension and one of my favorite solos on the record. I had the main riff of the song for a while and was psyched to find a home for it. The riff is built off a melodic minor #4 scale (I’ve also heard this called Lydian b3 which is mode of the harmonic major scale). The rest of the song is built off of diminished and chromatic ideas. For the solo, I wanted to go between some different scales and use different techniques to create some contrast. The riff is ambiguous harmonically so it led to switching between dorian, dimished and aeolian ideas. Thanks for checking out this play-through and come catch us in October on our U.S. tour with Soulfly!”
