The long delayed GUNS N' ROSES album CHINESE DEMOCRACY is absolutely "mind-blowing", according to former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach The album, which has been in the making since 1997, was given its full playback at a September (06) party hosted by frontman Axl Rose - the only remaining original member - at his mansion in California Bach, who is opening for the legendary group on their current (OCT06) tour of North America, says, "It was mind-blowing It's a very cool album - it's bada*s with killer screams, killer guitar riffs, but it's got a totally modern sound "The word for it is 'grand' It's f**king epic (Axl)'s reinvented himself yet again "There's this one song called SORRY, that's almost like doom metal with Axl singing really clean over this grinding, slow beat that is f**king mean I cannot get it out of my head " Chinese Democracy is rumoured to hit stores on 21 November (06), although the band's manager Merck Mercuriadis has declined to confirm this He says, "I don't know that we will announce a release date You might just walk into your record shop one Tuesday and find it there "
