Christian Muenzner,Bob Katsionis: working on a CD that's "80s Shrapnel Records shred meets modern metal"

Christian Muenzner of German progressive death metallersOBSCURA is working on an instrumental guitar record for a tentative spring release. The album will feature Hannes Grossmannon drums, Steve DiGiorgio  on bass and Daniel Galmarini  on keyboards, with guest appearances by Ryan Knight, Per Nilsson and Bob Katsionis. Vic Santur will handle the production duties on the CD, the drums for which will be laid down starting on December 27.

Commented Muenzner: "Being a fan of instrumental guitar music for many years, this has always been a dream of mine...The CD is gonna contain 12 instrumental songs. Stylistically, the music is quite diverse and has influences from various genres such as neoclassical shred, fusion, power metal, hard rock, prog and thrash metal. And, of course, the songs will have guitar all over it! I like to describe it as '80sShrapnel Records shred meets modern metal.  more

Tommy Ermolli: Guitar Day 6 Milan #2

Tommy Ermolli is a great melodic rock player and certainly knows how to write a catchy tune. Check the 2010 album from the Italian Melodic Rock outfit Prime Suspect. Formed by Daniele Liverani, Tommy Ermolli and Dario Ciccioni, the band came to the attention of the Melodic Rock crowd on their releases as Khymera. Liverani, the most experienced musician of the lot, had a long career in the Italian Rock scene releasing albums with the Prog Metal group Empty Tremor. Since Khymera's last two albums saw the bulk of the songwriting from the brothers Tom and James Martin, Liverani started to put together some Melodic Rock tracks which could live on the quality of arrangement and performance of the previous releases. Frontiers Records.

Richard Lundmark: cool clinic nu fusion soloing

Richard Lundmark:
Hi guys,
did a short clinic today at a local metal festival.
I've uploaded a excerpt from this clinic, where i discuss developing and soloing over scale chord voicings in modern metal fusion
(ala Meshuggah). The vid is in Swedish, but I added a short resume in the beginning so you'll know what I'm doing.
Gear for today was:
PRS 513 -- Boogie Studio Pre -- Macbook Pro and Apogee -- Redwirez cabinet impuls responses (Boogie w. V30s/SM57 Cap Edge -1).
Everything went out through a pretty low-end PA-system but what the heck, the kids liked it, that's all that matters!
