Shane Gibson: stOrk... time to get the CD!

Product Description... NEW CD!

Combining thrash metal with progressive rock -- stOrk, is the brainchild of guitar ogre Shane Gibson (KoRn) and uber-drummer Thomas Lang.

Best known for his soloing, Shane Gibson's frequent use of odd time signatures, heavy riffing, poly-rhythms, innovative tapping sequences and his impressive sweep picking technique provides the sonic spine of stOrk's masterful, musical progeny. Songs like, "Changing Lanes" and "Alien" on stOrk's debut album perfectly showcase Gibson's considerable shredding skills.

World-renowned drummer Thomas Lang (Rhythm magazine's "Best Drummer in the World") provides the percussive punch to stOrk's sonic uppercut. With Lang's incredible interdependence, powerful double bass drumming combined with an innate musicality, his drumming on stOrk is both insanely heavy and musical at the same time. Featured on "Metal Fatigue" and "Nautilus," Lang's drumming is legendary.

Rounding out this ultra power trio is Eloy Palacios (Vension) on bass. Palacious is the sonic superglue that binds Gibson's guitar and Lang's drums together. On stOrk's debut album, Palacious' virtuoso playing and bottomless bass pocket are not to be missed.

Intense, dark, aggressive, futuristic and somehow familiar, stOrk sounds like nothing you've ever heard -- but always hoped you would. To sample tracks:


1. Moonrock

2. Doooosh

3. Alien

4. Changing Lanes

5. Nautilus

6. Prelude In The Key of Shut The Hell Up

7. Loki

8. Ducksinapond

9. Metal Fatigue

10. Asian Manipulation

11. Emo Village Pillage

12. Tripola

Chris Broderick: cut finger!

Chris Broderick has issued the following update:
"How many times have you been told safety first? I always felt like I was being nagged, but now I am the one advocating safety.

"Last night I was breaking down boxes to put in the recycling bin, and the unthinkable happened. I cut my thumb on my right hand with a box cutter (razor blade). Instantly I knew I needed to get to the emergency room to make sure I hadn't cut my career along with my thumb. Luckily I didn't cut any tendons and will only have to lay off the guitar for a couple weeks.

Guy Myers: "they called him the Guitar Man, Everyone loved him."

Guy Myers worked for Hewlett-Packard for 19 years.
But later in life, his family said the 58-year-old Sunnyvale man drank too much. He lost his job. He lost his home. And Sunday, he lost his life.
For some reason, Myers ran along Highway 101 south of Lawrence Expressway about 10 p.m., and was killed when a Dodge Neon struck him.
His family wonders if drinking had anything to do with Myers' behavior.
"He liked to drink," said Myers' son, Aaron. "He was a musician and had his guitar with him. The driver said he held up his guitar over his head right before he died. In fact, the guitar made it, even though my father didn't."
The Santa Clara County coroner's office typically takes about six weeks for a toxicology report to come back to determine the cause of death, including what was inside someone's system before death. The California Highway Patrol did not arrest the driver of the Dodge.
"I feel sorry for the man," Aaron Myers said of the driver. "I'd like to let him know that."
Similar sentiments are shared by Myers' other two children and four grandchildren. Aaron Myers said he kept a "good relationship" with his father despite his life choices.
Myers was twice divorced and homeless, and frequented the 7-Eleven on Wildwood Avenue, next to one of his other favorite spots, Bogart's Lounge, his son said.
Myers earned a small living through tips from playing his guitar outside the convenience store.
"People called him the Guitar Man," Aaron Myers said. "Everyone loved him."
