Alice Cooper Drum Legend Neal Smith Releases 'KillSmith And The Greenfire Empire' - The Last Rock Opera


Westport, CT – From Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame drummer, song writer and founding Alice Cooper band member, comes his latest killer album. Neal’s most recent album, the third in his critically acclaimed solo project KillSmith series that has garnered praise from fans and critics worldwide. And now, Neal takes his ferocious brand of rock and roll to another level! This time “KillSmith & The GreenFire Empire” weaves a tapestry of musical styles to tell the “GreenFire” story along with a little help from his friends.

Is this conceptual heavy metal adventure, being dubbed the last Rock Opera, destined to become a movie! The story of a poor boy who grows up in the jungles of South America, then becomes “Diablos the Emerald King” the most ruthless, furious and powerful drug lord in the world. As a young boy Diablos discovers an ancient secret that has been hidden for thousands of years in pre-Columbian jungle ruins. The secret he discovers is an ancient sacrificial drug called “GreenFire.” As GreenFire’s deadly addiction spreads like wildfire around the globe, it reaches a country called “Blue Soul Land.” The havoc it creates in “Blue Soul Land” and with grave consequences it unleashes the rage of a retired Special Ops Military hero who’s nicknamed “KillSmith.” “GreenFire Born Of Poison” is the first single off of the album.

Says Neal, “My newest album/CD "KillSmith & The GreenFire empire" is my first concept album since the glory gory days of the band “Alice Cooper.” It’s a story of a poor boy who grows up in the jungles of South America, then becomes “Diablos the Emerald King” the most ruthless, ferocious and powerful drug lord in the world.
