On "Pedal To The Metal" I paid tribute to many of my favorite bands ranging from the current metal scene all the way back to the British metal invasion.
On the original side. Ozzy Osbourne "Blizzard Of Oz" cd and first Van Halen cd, combined with Al Dimeola, Yngwie, Schenker etc - all the way to the new modern metal bands like Disturbed, Korn, In Flames, Soilwork and the current Swedish metal scene. In fact, about 30% of the new cd has sounds very similar to these other bands, except we combined American melody and guitar solos with their rythym patterns. It was a pretty crazy experiment, but I think it has a really cool combination of American metal and Swedish metal, and a great combination of the Present and Past.
