Hollywood, CA (Top40 Charts/ DSN Music) Veteran rock guitarist Ron Marks, who played guitar for the legendary Swiss metal group Celtic Frost, and founder of Subsonic, has signed a distribution and development deal with DSN Music. Marks will release three previous Subsonic albums on a compilation box set titled "Trifecta", which will include tracks from "Super-Vel", "No Such Soul", and "Blood Groove".
"This is certainly not my first rodeo" said Marks "but it is my pleasure to sign with a company as professional and modern as DSN. The high level of respect and attention to details that they devote to their artists has all but vanished within the music industry."
Marks performed as lead guitarist for Celtic Frost in 1987, and toured the U.K. and U.S. with the group in support of the "Into The Pandemonium" release. He is also credited as a co-writer on Celtic Frost's 1990 release "Vanity/Nemesis". After his stint with Celtic Frost, Marks decided to move on and fufill a lifelong dream to create his own project.
In 2000, Marks founded and launched the popular rock group Subsonic, which spawned 6 albums; "Super-Vel", "No Such Soul", "Blood Groove", "Honeycomb", "Mach Ten" and "Hell's Half". Three music videos (Dream American, A Day Late and Fix) were released as well. Subsonic explores irreverent social visions and affirms how satire eclipses doctrine. "No Such Soul" was recognized in 2005 with preliminary Grammy Award nominations for Best Rock Album and Best Hard Rock Performance for the track "Dream American".
"When Subsonic and DSN joined forces I thought, Why release only one album? Why not a box set of three? They agreed and Trifecta is the result. This release catalogs Super-Vel, No Such Soul, Blood Groove and the evolution of Subsonic to that point. An evolution that continues forward" stated Marks.
Marks has received high honors in the rock industry over several decades, and is endorsed by major music brands such as Dean Guitars, Marshall Amps, S.I.T. Strings and Steve Clayton Products.
"Trifecta" is scheduled for a worldwide release via DSN Music this fall, and will be available via online and mobile stores such as Amazon.com, iTunes, Rhapsody.com, Google Music, Spotify, eMusic.com, iHeartRadio and hundreds more.
