Raphael Fraser: make e a video competition

Midget Jeff... the tiny Chef... something to get your imagine into!
Short story is: watch the video, which contains the lyrics; make a video to accompany the song; post it as a video response on youtube (and make sure you’ve subscribed to my youtube channel). I’ll probably close it off by the 1st of December … if I’ve received any ….

The prize is a Joe Satriani DVD: Live in San Francisco

Although if preferred, I might be able to substitute The Last Samurai – now that Tom Cruise has thoroughly racked me off, to the point I cannot watch anything with him in it any more.

Note: the song’s lyrics are not intended to upset anyone, and I hope no-one interprets them in an overly sensitive and PC fashion. It was just a bizarre notion I had while my wife was watching some TV cooking shows. Likewise any video for the song shouldn’t be deliberately offensive/mocking etc

Toby Knapp: godless rising CD date

The Godless Rising album "Trumpet of Triumph" has a new release date of Feb 9th however the January/Feb tour is already booked so that is still a go. We plan to do a tour in July as well and any other special events/fests that might come up. My solo album "The Campaign" is now going to be released in January. I have temporarily removed the tracks from that album from the player but you can still hear a track streaming at in the meantime. I'll be doing some interviews soon and will post them here for those interested. The merchandise available here is going fast as it is being taken in bulk quantities by distros and I don't know when/if I will have things restocked, so if you intend on ordering anything please check on it's availability first, thanks!

Travis Montgomery: tribute to scar symmetry

Travis Montgomery says:
Here's my attempt at the solo in Scar Symmetry's "Ghost Prototype Pt.1". I couldn't get the audio to sync up with the video perfectly for some reason on this one, so it's just slightly off from the video.

I also had to edit in the last tapping part. The recording dropped out right before it, and I thought the rest of the take was worth keeping.
