Marshall Harrison: the holdsworthian principal II

News:
30-03-2009:
Was it just me.. getting some withdrawl symptoms? It had been a couple of weeks at least... well time to get my latest guitar fix.

Marshall Harrison says:
Get your favorite tube amp with plenty of distortion and follow the instructions to acheive smooth legato bliss.
I use a valvetronix by VOX (without pedal) and of course the Allan Holdsworth UD STOMP (find one on ebay probably). Roll the treble all the way off and if needed the mids too. PS - keep in mind that sequencing with legato requires fairly sophisticated and syncopated hybrid picking technique.

Jeremy Krull: the man in the engine room

News:
30-03-2009:
I caught up with Jeremy Krull on facebook IM. He's been very busy since he graduated Berklee College of Music in May of 2008. Currently based in New York, he's set up a freelance production company called Strategic Sonics. As a result he's been at the helm for a number of music projects including Hiss Of Atrocities, Dark Empire. I addition he's also been working as a session musician writing and playing for people such as the Magna Carta label.



Those who anxiously await music will have to wait a little longer as Jeremy says:
"I'm still writing music, but right now I'm having a lot of fun working in the studio for other folks... I've been writing new material, much more fusion/world/progressive based, and it'll probably feature a lot of lazy legato playing, and abuse of my Surfreter!"
. As a result of his top studio work he's also picked up some endorsements along the way, including support from Vigier Guitars, Maxon FX/Godlyke, Toontrack.

Francesco Artusato: double devastation

News:
30-03-2009:
Kudos to Jeremy Krull for keeping me in the loop with what appears to be a stunning / jaw dropping release from Hiss Of Atrocities guitarist Francesco Artusato... that I missed.



It appears that Francesco Artusato released his Gardens of Yama EP a few months back. Jeremy Krull handled reamping, mixing, drum programming, and mastering for the CD. That can be heard at http://www.myspace.com/francescoartusatomusic. This "nu heavy holdsworthian"... if that's the right term to describe it?... is really just what rock fusion cross over fans have been looking for... this guy delivers seriously cool legato rippage in spades! Jeff Loomis, Meshuggah fans take note!



In February Francesco Artusato band, Hiss Of Atrocities released their full length album called "Rituals Of The Lost". They've been gigging extensively around California and have been picking up interest from numerous labels and promotional groups as well. Their myspace can be found at: http://www.myspace.com/hissofatrocities double devastation
