How is the new album different from “The Master Plan”

It has more groove, more space, more variation in tones, more diversity and maturity in the songs, so in a word: MORE.

Mayzan,Angel Stephanie: Cacophony tribute

We decided to play it without any backtrack, so we can hear all the harmonies and honesty. :-) In this video Mayzan plays a 1963 vintage strat (yes, it has a really thin frets.. almost unplayable haha) thru a non-master volume 1972 Marshall JMP50 amp and I play Marty's Jackson Kelly #1 thru a Soldano SLO-100 amp. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks :-)
