Hi everybody!
I am glad to announce that the new album of Goldenseed (my personal musical project) entitled "The War Is In My Mind" will be officially out worldwide for the Italian label SG Records on the 20th of January 2012. 11 tracks of prog / death / jazz / shredding metal to tease your minds! :) On vocals, in a song, there is a special guest: Stian Johansen (better known as Culto or Occultus), former member of famous Norwegian black metal acts like Mayhem, Thy Abhorrent, Shadow Dancers and many more.
The album will be available in best shops of your town, in the main metal-related mailorders, or in digital format on the mainstream channels like iTunes and similar.
Here is a promo trailer with some sample audio :)
Feel free to share and spam around ;)
I hope you will buy the album and not only download from the common illegal ways :) good music!!

Mike Orlando, Mike Portnoy: Adrenaline Mob slim down

Guitarist Rich Ward and bassist Paul DiLeo leave the band due to other commitments.

"The core of this band has always been the three of us. The album was written and recorded that way. We later added Rich and Paul as part of the original touring lineup and we had a blast touring with them. However, they both had other projects and priorities and could not give a full-time commitment to ADRENALINE MOB. We're all still friends and we wish them all the best in their other bands, but for now, our focus is entirely on ADRENALINE MOB, the release of 'Omertà' on 3/13/12, and hitting the road hard and playing for you all soon!"

Devin Townsend: Peavy Signature PXD Vicious seven-string baritone guitar

plus another interview

Devin Townsend:
Totally. 100%. Without making that life change, I’d have been stuck where I was and the writing was on the wall and I say that and again I can say that until I’m blue in the face and people still wouldn’t get that, but staying there would have stunted me emotionally for the rest of my life, so I chose not to. It’s nothing against the music. I’m very proud of the music, I think it’s awesome, but it’s not me anymore. A lady said to me before “Why would you not do it again?” and I replied “Why would you want me to?” If I’m not there, it’s going to ruin the romance for the people who expect it to be something I’m not anymore. When I was in Strapping, I was furious and on drugs and shit, and I worked a lot of it out – it’s not like it went away, but I worked it out. I consciously made an effort to work that shit out. A lot of people are upset when you work out your anger issues, but there’s a big industry for music which is furious and angry because in my opinion, the world is looking for a justification to feel the same way. “Look! It’s popular to say “Fuck Everything” so it must be O.K!” and I don’t think it is in a lot of ways. It’s O.K when you’re younger, but when you get older, you end up hurting yourself if you still feel that way. But again, the way I chose to write music and the way Slayer write music is different – I’m not saying Slayer are unhealthy… more

News: Bi Axe Bass Guitar double neck

The Biaxe was first created in 1976 and patented in 1981 for combining standard guitar techniques with the style called "tapping," which Stanley Jordan popularized during that same period. Later versions of the Biaxe evolved into a spare neck which could be removably attached to one's own guitar or bass.

Levi Clay: tritone fascinations

Musical harmony has come a long way in the last 150 years, so far in fact that it could be easy to fall into a rut of repetition, never breaking any new ground. Bebop itself was born out of frustration and experimentation, the youth of the day pushing the boundaries and seeing what happened. Today we're going to look at some post bop experimentation that you might find in the lines of saxophonists like Michael Brecker and Jerry Bergonzi. The focus will be the synthetic scale known as the tritone scale, so come and have a look if you want to insert a little of the devil into your playing.

Michael was particularly synonymous with the experimentation of synthetic scales so check out his work with The Brecker Brothers, Steps Ahead and his solo albums (try his self titled album for something really special).
We're deep in the world of funk fusion now, so lets start this by listening to some Brecker Brothers (with Mike Stern on guitar). Michaels solo starts at 1:18 and he's really flying here, a great blend of pentatonics and fluid outside lines. If only we could be that fluid on the guitar! There is a valuable lesson to be learnt here though, drawing influence from other instruments is a great way to help develop your own voice on the guitar.

Rocco Pezzin: Chapman Guitars new endorsee

Rocco Pezzin:
Hi everyone, I’m Rocco, an Italian dude from a little town near Venice.

Since I was a little kid I’ve always been surrounded by music, mainly because of my father’s love for British rock and music in general. Pink Floyd, Deep Purple and Zeppelin were my first inspirations; they brought me to start playing drums at the age of ten, but it wasn’t until I first heard Slash’s playing in GnR that I fell deeply in love with the guitar, and started playing the instrument like a crazy mot*****er!

I’ve been in several metal bands, and I am always trying to enhance my musical vocabulary and technical skills by listening to and learning songs by a wide variety of artists.

When I started listening to bands like Periphery, Animals As Leaders and Jeff Loomis a whole new world opened up to me in terms of songwriting. I’m still trying to find my genre, but you can definitely hear the inspirations I’ve had in my upcoming material.

Throughout all these years, I’ve been a die-hard Chappers follower, and being a Chapman Guitars artist is definitely a huge honor for me.

Joel Hoekstra: Night Rangers guitarist in chambersofrock interview

AW: Sure and you brought Christian (Cullen – Former Night Ranger keyboardist) in on that one too didn’t you?

Joel: Yeah, Christian did some keys on it and … Lots of great musicians on both those. The first two were basically made with Virgil Donati on drums, who’s played with Planet X and Steve Vai, you know, just a massive virtuoso drummer and then the bass player on those is Ric Fierabracci who’s played with Andy Summers and Frank Gambale, Chick Corea and so really great musicians and then the ’13 Acoustic songs’ I used just more happen stance, you know more pop rock guys like Nir Z (John Mayer) did a lot of percussion on it and Daniel Adair from Nickelback did some percussion on it, you know just some guys that I’m kind of buds with or whatever that just happen to do more pop rock stuff. more

News: building custom guitars is a complex job

Drew Slaney NEW ARTICLE: More and more these days I am asked to build complex custom guitars, more than that I am being asked to build instruments with three or four separate pickup systems, with on-board effects units and tremolo systems that are increasingly complex; this is very likely my own fault, I do like to say that I will take on any feasible project as long as it is playable and pretty, but this leaves me violating a rule that I have stood by for years... simplicity is key!
