MISSION VIEJO, CALIF. – Orange County, California, Musician Christian Hernandez is set to release his first album of new music in five years. The album will be called “Enter the Void” and will be released only to digital platforms in the summer of 2020. His previous three albums, “5 For 5,” “Battle Royale,” and “Sonic Flow” are all available on Amazon, Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube.
While he still uses the moniker “The Christian Hernandez Rotation,” Christian is his own band on the new release, playing guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. The album comes on the heels of 2015’s “Sonic Flow,” which was produced by Grammy Award-winner Anton Pukshansky. Christian took a hiatus from performing his original material to work on teaching and gigging with other groups, but is back in form with 12 new tracks of all original material.
While his previous releases hinted at Christian’s interest in sports and video games, “Enter the Void” is Christian’s tribute to cinema. His new-found love for the movies inspired him to compose tracks influenced by such classic films as Martin Scorsese’s “Raging Bull,” “Casino” and “Mean Streets.” The album was engineered and produced by Timmy Andrews, who in turn hired Christian to play drums on projects for his group, Holden Days.
The new album showcases Christian’s expansive talents as a musician. While Christian has been a teacher since high school, he has played guitar, bass, and drums for over 20 years, and highlights his proficiency on those instruments on the new tracks.
The sound has veered away from jazz and funk and is closer to instrumental rock. Fans of previous releases will notice a change in the attitude and drive of the album, with a handful of the tracks being faster and meaner than anything on the first three records. Christian was quoted as saying that “it sounds closer to Jeff Beck’s ‘Wired’ album.”
