Michael Romeo: Symphony X sign to Nuclear Blast!


World Management and Nuclear Blast are extremely proud to announce the signing of Metal / Prog Gods Symphony X !!!

“As lifelong fans of the band, it is with great pride that Nuclear Blast announces the signing of US Metal / Prog Gods Symphony X!!!
Symphony X exemplifies the technical sophistication of progressive metal while transcending the genre by writing amazing songs with masterful musicality and great hooks!
This New Jersey-based super group effortlessly creates a balancing act between solid, accessible arrangements and song structures with highly technical, challenging instrumental work and unbelievable melodic vocal harmonies. This embrace of polyphonic lead vocals, combined with their classical-sometimes even Queen-like- choruses create a powerful, in-your-face mixture. With elements of thundering metal, rock, solos with unstoppable guitar shredding and intense keyboards - this potent group has grown with every release and is poised to compete with the commercial success of top groups in all genres!
Symphony X is currently creating their next masterpiece, anticipated in the spring of 2010!
Together, we will bring this talent to a new level! We hope you are ready for the ride!”

“We are happy to be the part of the Nuclear Blast Family and look forward to working with them for many years to come,” says Michael Romeo.

Scott Mosher: new web site


Hi folks, just a quick little message to inform you that my website has been revisited, reconstructed, reconstituted, reconfigured and any other adjective that begins with the prefix "re". Insert here: __________.

I've posted a plethora of design projects, photos in the galleries, press materials (downloadable PDFs) CD reviews and songs (samples and full-length mp3's) so there's plenty of free stuff to wrap your ears around if you feel so inclined. Who's going to argue with free stuff?

Anyhow, this has been the most significant website overhaul I've ever attempted and managed, so the changes are many, plenty and hopefully, effective.

Again, thank you for your time, attendance and support - and now back to your regularly scheduled day.

Magnus Olsson: vibrato the heart of guitar playing?

Magnus Olsson asks:
It is okay to think that it's not correct, a man should believe in what his heart tells him to believe (but in this case it is not a wise heart, becuase they are correct).
But don't take my word for it, just buy yourself a measuring tool (don't know what they are called in English, oscilloskop in Swedish) that measures mV (that is the output) and see for yourself.
Or take a talk with some technician at a sting factory or a pickup factory. Or talk to any really experience guitar tech out there.

Do you know how a guitar pickup work (I mean, really knows how it works)?

The difference is unarguably there in amount of output.

If you hear it or not is more subjective, all depending on your ears.
Some people hear if you change your pickup to one that are only 5 % different from the first one, some don't hear any difference if you change to one that 50 % different from the first one.
Some people hear a clear (and can tell them apart) difference between stainless steel frets and normal frets, some say it is impossible that there are any difference because they don't hear it.

No one has said that a louder string is better (I really don't think it is, unless on most acoustic, hollowbodies or semi-hollowbodies), but they a clearly different than not so loud strings.

I don't understand what you mean with this sentence.
"I can't think of any pickups that barely receive any of the vibrations from guitar strings."

And one question.
Have you really tried changing string size and not change anything ells and recorded the differences?
If you have and you don't hear a difference, are your amp a POD with distortion on max and very hard compression and tons of effects?


Vibrato is an area that I focus on when I'm looking at and listening too guitar video. You can have a boat load of string skipped arpeggios or play alternate pinking at 200nps.... but in my world if you vibrato is in anyway off.... well forget it... vibrato is the life and soul of guitar playing discuss

Heaven, improvised live solo over Bryan Adams tune.
