Artist of the day: Team Cybergeist




Angel Bartolotta made a name for himself as the drummer for metal band Dope. Since then, he’s brought the metal world into his own personal realm with Team Cybergeist.

The collaborative industrial metal project features Bartolotta, who lives in the Sarasota area, as its creative chief and the center around which all other members revolve. And we’re talking about a LOT of members. On Facebook, Bartolotta outlines the artists who’ve participated in Team Cybergeist over the years, either live or in studio, including members of Morbid Angel, Saliva, Shinedown, Stone Sour and more. Sometime in 2013, Team Cybergeist will release a new album featuring appearances from Shiendown’s Eric Bass, Static-X’s Koichi Fokuda, Coal Chamber’s Meegs Rascoon and Stabbing Westward’s Walter Flakus, among many others.

For now, though, Team Cybergeist is in the midst of a 19-city tour that ends in Tampa on Saturday. “We really want to blow up the Tampa show as an end-of-tour party,” Bartolotta said. That includes free swag from Jagermeister, raffles, auctions and support from local acts like Sunshine and Bullets. Tickets are $10. Click here for info.
