Paul Kleff,Nick Layton: FireWolfe new CD

Go to to download Air Attack from the FireWolfe CD. Album mixed by John Payne and Jay Schellen, All music and images copyright 2011 by FireWolfe Metal the way it ought to be. FireWolfe is:
  • David Fefolt (vocals) 
  • Paul Kleff (guitars)
  • Nick Layton (guitars)
  • Jay Schellen (drums)
  • Zack Uidl (bass)
“We should do a band project together.” Twin-guitar fueled melodic metal with powerful vocals–this is FireWolfe.
Being friends and mutual fans of each other’s music and guitar playing, a new band was formed out of a conversation Nick Layton and Paul Kleff had in early 2010. The two shared many guitar and musical influences and immediately started to lay the groundwork and musical vision for a new band.
Without having a full band put together yet, Paul and Nick began writing music together. Heavy, melodic and powerful music with an emphasis on great songs with killer guitar work. The ultimate goal was to have a band that made the kind of music that they would want to listen to and an album that they would want to buy.
As the writing progressed, the focus shifted to finding the right voice for the music. A heavy, melodic and powerful voice that would not only fit the style of music that was being created, but would also be able to take the rough songs and turn them into world-class melodic metal. One name kept coming up over and over again—veteran rock/metal vocalist David Fefolt.
Some phone calls were made, rough tracks were sent over, and David was immediately on board as the voice and front man of the band—“I think between us we could make something really special out of this.” Heavy, loud, melodic and full of hook-laden guitar work–this is FireWolfe.

Jane Smith: Fuzz Box Girl Ben Rod Electro Demo This is such a sweet, clean and crisp sounding pedal. Is it a Clean Boost, an Overdrive, a Distortion or a Tonebender? Not really, but it's a little of everything. After years of research, Ben Rod developed the Goldbender to really "bend" your amp's tone and give you a huge sound without compromising bass frequencies. Go from sweet overdrive tones to all out fuzz-like squeals. I love this one! Grab one while you can.....

Marty Friedman: Twist to the new Tokyo Jukebox 2 CD cover

Marty Friedman's latest release gets a new cover... which looks a little like the old cover...spotted the difference yet... well if you buy both you will notice... great music too :)
"Tokyo Jukebox 2" stretches the boundaries of guitar interpretation beyond anything Marty has released to date. In a recent interview with Italian web radio, Friedman stated about his next release, "My next album is called 'Tokyo Jukebox 2'. In 2009 I released 'Tokyo Jukebox', which was a good success for me in Japan, and it came out worldwide. So the record company asked if I wanted to do a 'part 2' to it and I was very excited to do that because, actually, 'Tokyo Jukebox' is one my favorite albums that I've ever done, so when it came time to do a second album, it was a lot of fun choosing the songs and doing the arrangements and recording it and I'm very happy about it. It's almost finished; I recorded most of it before going on tour in Europe. . . I'm very excited about it. [It's] definitely the deepest and most special album ever, because it's the most recent, and because it's got all of my experience put together and all of the depth of everything that I've learned over the most recent times and everything is in it, and I'm very happy with it so far."
TOKYO JUKEBOX 2 2nd J-POP popular album cover! Singing songs from the latest J-hit POP, singing guitar sound that explodes a wide range of anime music! 01. Yeah! Holiday Truly 02. So Tears 03.

Dave Mustaine,Marty Friedman: Marty wanted to be a pop guitar player.

On why guitarist Marty Friedman won't return to MEGADETH: Mustaine: "Well, first off, he's not welcome. I mean, it's not that he's not welcome, it's just that there's no position for him. And Marty's not as good as Chris [Broderick, current MEGADETH guitarist] is, second off. And Marty wanted to be a pop guitar player. He left to join a girl in a band in Japan. . . [The MEGADETH lineup featuring Friedman and drummer Nick Menza] wasn't the most important lineup anyways. The lineup that we have right now has achieved more than those guys ever did. If you think about it, the groundwork, the building the band back up from nothing… Marty and Nick got in the band when the band was already huge." more
