Stéphan Forté,Jon Bloomer: Guitar Noize radar goes off the dial for new release


The first the thing that piqued my interest was the impressive list of guest artists appearing on his debut solo album ‘The Shadows Compendium‘: Jeff Loomis, Mattias IA Eklundh, Glen Drover, Derek Taylor and Daniele Gottardo. However when I listen to the album I find that I totally forget that there are any guest artists, Stephan’s style is very close to Jeff Loomis and in fact you really have to concentrate to hear when Jeff is playing. I would actually say Stephan is a mixture of Jeff Loomis, Yyngwie Malmsteen and Jason Becker he has the most incredible technique and phrasing and makes extensive use of Diminshed and Harmonic Minor scales to craft his melodies and has ultra heavy accompanying rhythms. It is more obvious when the guest guitarist has a totally different style such as Mattias IA Eklundh who guests on ‘De Praestigiis Daemonum‘, a track which by the way reminds me a lot of early Jason Becker, Mattias has a very distinctive tone and playing style so he stands out. full review

Stéphan Forté: 'Jason Becker's not Dead' festival, at the Patronaat venue in Haarlem

Stéphan Forté thrilled a delighted audience, when he delivered a powerful set of virtuoso guitar work, during the 'Jason Becker's not Dead' festival, at the Patronaat venue in Haarlem, The Netherlands, on November 13th, 2011.

The festival was a mind blowing, near six hour marathon of world class guitar performances.

This clip is a single camera view from audience position, but a professional camera crew was also present to record the event in full, so watch out for the official video, to be released in the near future.
About Stéphan Forté (extracts from his website):
In June 1998, he opened for Yngwie Malmsteen and was contacted by producer Chris Tsangarides (Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest, Gary Moore...) who wished to work with him.

Adagio played US Prog Power V Festival in September 2004, opened for Robert Plant in 2006, toured Japan in 2007 Stephan has since released an instructional DVD called "Underworld Solos", and finished two more Adagio albums: "Dominate" and "Archangels In Black",

In 2009, Stéphan finally decides to go further and explore his very personal self without any musical limit. The Shadows Compendium, is the result of those 3 years of intense work and reflexion, and what we have here simply is an outstanding and unique piece of music.
About the festival (from the festival webpage):
JASON BECKER'S NOT DEAD YET IN AMSTERDAM!
The first 'Not Dead Yet' Festival happened in San Francisco March 26, 2011. Guitar heroes like Joe Satriani, Steve Hunter, Greg Howe, Steve Lukather, Richie Kotzen, Michael Lee Firkins, Jeff Watson and others honored Jason Becker that night. This was very unique and touching.
In November 2011 Jason Becker's "Not Dead Yet" Festival will be held in Amsterdam.
Well respected guitar players and friends from Jason will perform during this unique special event. Proceeds from the evening go towards medical supplies for Jason as well as a trust fund to provide for his future security.
We have great guitar players like Guthrie Govan (Aristocrats), Michael Lee Firkins, Mattias IA Eklundh (Freak Kitchen), Kiko Loureiro (Angra), Andy James (Secret Mother Tongue and Lick Library teacher), Daniele Gottardo, Marco Sfogli (James LaBrie), Stephan Forte (Adagio), Joop Wolters, Marcel Coenen (Sun Caged), Timo Somers (Delain).
On the drums we have a drummer who has played like with all possible guitar players you ever heard off, on bass we have the well renowned Stuart Hamm (Satriani, Vai, G3, Frank Gambale), Barend Courbois and Franck Hermanny (Adagio), on keys Rene Kroon (Sun Caged, Barstool Philosophers).

Allan Holdsworth, Eddie Van Halen: Jam 1983

A great meeting of musical style, Eddie's guitar struts and screams like some sort of deranged playboy while Holdsworth glides through the musical ether on a rocket fueled firework of sound. It's fantastic stuff. Jeff Berlin and Gary Husband on bass and drums respectively, holding it all together.
