The project was on hiatus for several years due to demand and relocation to Los Angeles by founder/guitarist/vocalist Dominic Cifarelli (former guitar player for Pulse Ultra (Atlantic Records)). While in Los Angeles, Ciferalli was part of multiple projects that included touring with Scars on Broadway, which featured Daron Malakian and John Dolmayan of System of a Down, a collaboration with Lukas Rossi on the single “Headspin” that is featured on the album “Rockstar Supernova” starring Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and Jason Newsted, recording guitars and bass for Billy Ray Cyrus’ 2012 release “Change My Mind” plus performing on French platinum artist Zaho’s debut and sophomore albums, and recording two guitar solos on a Rush tribute album released by Magna Carta, which featured Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Mike Mangini (Dream Theater) and Stu Hamm (Steve Vai). Other highlights in Cifarelli’s career include a featured guest guitar appearance with Cypress Hill and Travis Barker at the annual Smoke Out Festival in San Bernardino, CA that also featured Incubus, Living Colour and Manu Chao plus guest performances in 2013 with Chevelle in Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel and Taproot at the Whiskey in Los Angeles.
For those in the Montreal area, THE CHRONICLES OF ISRAFEL will be hosting a CD Release show at Petit Cafe Campus on October 15th. Full details here.
