Jon Neto: Olivetti - highly original concept

Jon Neto:
Olivetti... after the sound of a typewriter... That sound was the same experimental ... A few years passed through the room and looked at her, she looked at me, took it and went into the studio, the result was this. I found this song 'lost' on a CD that I found by 'accident' in recent changes, and requests, I decided to post here on SoundCloud. ;)

Glen Drover: New album update and interviews

Glen Drover:
Lots of cool things to update you on here. We started work on the new GLEN DROVER BAND album recently, and have just finished the first track completly. This album will follow the last albums style, but will contain more metal stuff this time around. There wont be as many covers on this album, but one track that will be featured, is a cover of an instrumental song that OZZY OSBOURNE played on the Diary Of A Madman tour before Randy (Rhoads) died. it was never featured on any of the Ozzy albums, but can be found on various bootlegs from that tour. Its a really cool metal/classical piece that they played surrounding Tommy's drum solo. I extended the track and turned it into a full song. This is the track that we just finished and we are all super happy with the results!

Aside from that, I pretty much have all the material for this next album in various files in the studio here to work on. All tracks were written by myself, Jim Gilmour and Paul.Yee. Some killer shit going on, that I can promise!

Finally, there have been a lot of people asking me if there will ever be another Eidolon record, and although I don't see that happening, we are doing something cool with this new GDB album as far as Eidolon goes, which is aside from all the instrumental tracks that will be recorded for the album, I'm having all three past Eidolon singers do one track each for the album!

It's a mix of tracks that were written years ago, but hiding in the song archives in my studio until the other day... I was in one of my many cleaning moods, sorting through stuff and found these lost tracks. WHOA!!!! Very excited about this to say the least, as the tracks are killer!!

Also, there maybe a song from the original Seven Spirits album, fully re-recorded with new vocals and lyrics. The re-recording of that album has been in my head for years, as it is one of my fave albums musically. Not sure if that will ever happen, but grabbing a song or two and doing justice to it sounds good to me!

Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, Neil Peart: Clockwork Angels details

Legendary rock band RUSH has unveiled details of its highly anticipated, new album, "Clockwork Angels". This is the renowned trio's first new collection of original material in over five years and their first studio release via Anthem/Roadrunner Records. "Clockwork Angels", the band's 20th studio album, will be released on June 12.

The recording of "Clockwork Angels" began in April 2010 with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, DEFTONES) — who also collaborated with the band on their last studio album, 2007's "Snakes & Arrows". RUSH co-produced both records. The first two songs, "Caravan" and "BU2B", were completed during that first session at Nashville's Blackbird studios and performed nightly during the wildly successful Time Machine Tour, which ran from June 2010 to June 2011. Work on "Clockwork Angels" resumed in the fall of 2011 at Revolution Recording in Toronto after the tour's finale, with additional strings (arranged by David Campbell) recorded at Hollywood's Ocean Way Studios earlier this year. Lyrically, "Clockwork Angels" chronicles a young man's quest across a lavish and colorful world of steampunk and alchemy as he attempts to follow his dreams. The story features lost cities, pirates, anarchists, an exotic carnival, and a rigid Watchmaker who imposes precision on every aspect of daily life. The novelization of "Clockwork Angels" is being written by science fiction writer Kevin J. Anderson in collaboration with RUSH drummer and lyricist Neil Peart.
