Juan Carlos Portillo: Shadow of the Snake

Shadow of the Snake. On both equinoxes of every year, the light of the Sun slides down Chichén Itzá largest pyramid stairway projecting a descending giant snake shape. The Mayas believed that this represented the Plumed Serpent, Kukulcán who came from heaven claiming harvesting season had begun.

Keshav Dhar: SKYHARBOR - Celestial (worldwide) (USA/CANADA)
"Right now, I am very much into a band called Skyharbor from India" - Chris Adler (Lamb of God)
SKYHARBOR's breathtaking double disc, debut album, 'Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos', will be released on April 23rd via Basick Records and promises to be a landmark release for the Indian independent music scene, in no small part thanks to the incredible number of international guest appearances it will see, including the likes of Marty Friedman (ex Megadeth), Daniel Tompkins (ex TesseracT), Vishal J. Singh (Amogh Symphony) and Sunneith Revankar (Bhayanak Maut).
Spanning 2 discs the album reveals very different aspects of the band and is a mix of effortlessly mature, ambient soundscapes that intertwine playfully alongside densely layered guitar work, complex structures and experimental metal.

Ron Thal: Still has shoulder problems revealed in new Hit Channel interview

How are your shoulder and your back after your injury?
Just on Monday I was in the hospital and they injected medication into my spinal column. Maybe in a few months I will feel the positive effects of it, but so far I don’t feel much better. I don’t know. It’s very hard to live with.

Do you have any contact with Jerry Gaskill (King’s X drummer) after his health problems?
Oh yes. I was with him in the hospital after his surgery. Jerry said the doctor told him he can eat “whatever the fuck he wants.” That’s what he said , “whatever the fuck he wants”. After the next tour, we will go out for a dinner and I hope he’ll be feeling healthy and strong, and we’ll be eating “whatever the fuck he wants”. I‘m sure he will come back strong. He’s such a good guy.

~ Greg Koch ~
Hailing from the frigid wasteland of northern Wisconsin comes a beast the likes of which the world has never known. Greg Koch, a beast of both persona and guitar-mastery, couples his sickeningly magnetic personality with the guitar to create a style of playing that is both completely unique and deplorable at the same time. As a huge fan of the legendary Big Jim Hendricks Greg has taken all that is good and righteous about blues guitar and warped it into a ridiculously fantastic amalgamation of melodic defilement and mind-blowing creativity. Over the years Greg has shared the stage with everyone from Joe Bonamassa to Les Paul himself, never relenting, never ceasing to bring the ruckus.
