Damien Ossart-Villanova: The Omen Trio

Damien Ossart-Villanova (guitar, compositions); Julio Rakotonanahary (bass); Erik Borelva (drums)
The Omen trio is the new project by french guitarist Damien Ossart-Villanova. With Julio Rakotonanahary (N'guyen Le, Paco Sery...) on bass and Erik Borelva (Archie Shepp, The last Poets...) on drums, this power trio plays on adventurous grounds, mixing blues and funk roots with more complex rythm and sound textures, not to forgot great interplay and musicianship. Damien Ossart-Villanova's guitar is the expressive voice of this instrumental release, playing with strong command, fluidity and great tone. A refreshing new trio! buy

Francesco Fareri: Virtual Mind new album details

Lion Music are pleased to announce the launch of our new purely "digital" release range. With the growing popularity of legal downloads we are using this platform to offer up some out of print classics as well as introduce some new special releases from selected artists.



VIRTUAL MIND are a progressive metal band formed by guitarist Francesco Fareri. The Debut album coming out soon is a mixture of heavy metal and progressive style with actual lyrics and personal events that influenced the total songwriting. Francesco wrote all music and lyrics trying to create something new in this genre of music.

The band is composed by Francesco Fareri 7 & 8 string guitar, renowned singer Titta Tani(ex DGM, ex Astra, Ashent etc), drummer Dario Ciccioni (Twinspirits, Empyrios, Empty Tremor, Khymera etc) and bassist Emanuele Calvelli (Noumeno).

Everything happened when Francesco left his last band and was searching for a singer with powerful and delicate colours of the voice and so he met Titta Tani. In few weeks Titta reviewed the songs and gave some good feedback so Francesco and his close friend Mauro Tonelli started to work on lyrics. Meantime Emanuele recorded all the bass tracks and Dario Ciccioni programmed drums exactly as he could play them. Over the following weeks the album was recorded, mixed and mastered and picked up by Lion Music for release on their digital album network in mid 2011.

Cameron Barton: cheeky lickage

Cameron Barton:
Exactly what the title says. No fuckin around. Just the fastest lick I can play on 1 string. NO it's not fake. 100% real. I have plenty of people that can vouch for that because you can't speed up your own audio and video while video chatting with someone.

Fred Brum: Atonement

Do come to Monkeyfest 2011, where I'll be playing with monsters such as Guthrie Govan, Andy James, and Alex Hutchings -  
My second Spider is home already! :D This is an actual live playthrough, and I'm using the patches as is, leaving only harmonies behind so I don't accidentally mask the guitar's tone with post-processing. Excuse the mistakes here and there, but time isn't on my side until Monkeyfest. :)
This instrument didn't even have time to settle and it's as if Jaden had delivered it to me by hand - impressive stability. :)
