Uli Jon Roth: Under A Dark Sky

Uli Jon Roth Under A Dark Sky (CD)
Since the early 1970s Uli Jon Roth has been a household name, be it from his work with the Scorpions, his own band Electric Sun, composing symphonies and concertos and sometimes performing with symphony orchestras throughout Europe. Uli Jon Roth has returned to form with his first real rock record since 1985's "Beyond The Astral Skies". Under A Dark Sky is the first official release in the long-awaited series of Symphonic Legends, which is a cycle of music written by Uli for his all-encompassing Sky Of Avalon project. Fans of the Scorpions and Uli Jon Roth alike, will be in awe of the guitar master once again as he delivers his next masterpiece. Vocalists Mark Boals and Liz Vandall (complete with a choir) also contribute, singing in three languages, furtively and dramatically crying out for peace and hope, challenging humankind to return to the One who guides us to the path of restoration

Chris Broderick: live metal interview

Greg: You’re a very schooled musician. You’ve got a music degree. So how did you end up in metal from that background?

The funny thing is, there are aspects of each type of music that draw me to it. For classical, it was its compositional excellence and its beauty and its elegance and stuff like that. With metal, it was just totally almost like the opposite of that, in a way, where whatever goes, whatever happens. I love jazz because of its harmonic density and flamenco because it’s like classical but with fire behind it. I have all these little labels for reasons why I like different styles of music, but it’s funny because within each genre I’m very picky about the artist. What it comes down to me in the end is that you always have to have an artist that is competent at what they do for me to like it. If I hear something that sounds like they’re doing it just because it’s what they’re technically allowed, then I generally won’t like it.

Paolo Castillo: Andy James shreddign competition

Paolo Castillo a genbuine nice guy, loves guitar and it show... a great tapping tour de force for his entry to the Andy James shredding competition.

Web cam upload. The video is a bit out of sync near the end but ah what the hell. I thought the backing track was too riffy to just solo on. I figured it was meant to have vocals so I tried to be as melodic as possible in those section (otherwise there's just too much going on all at once).

Hope you like it!
