Stéphan Forté is undoubtedly a virtuoso of the most innovative of the new generation. with influences ranging from Bartok to Meshuggah, his musical horizon could be described as follows: The meeting between modern virtuosity and a deep sensitivity, operating both in the darkest corners musical.
In 2009, parallel to the output of Archangels In Black, the fourth album of his band Adagio, Stéphan finally decided to go further in his personal exploration without wanting to impose no limit music. "The Shadows Compendium" is the result of three years of hard work and reflection.

Ron Thal: livereviewer interview

You also are on the recently released debut “Breathe Again” from Alexa Vetere. How was it to get this album out and work which such a young talent?

Ron Thal : I took it on as a challenge when it began. I was teaching her to sing, play, write, and from there she grew into her own. The music we released was from when we had begun in the mid-2000′s, it was her and the Bumble Band, haha – me & Dennis… we did some shows in NY & LA and then I got busy with GNR, she pursued her education, and now years later we wanted to share what we made all those years ago. Hopefully we can release more music in the future.

Mika Tyyskä: Mr. Fastfinger Cartoon Guitar vs. Human Guitar

Mr Fastfinger: in Motion

Heavy metal guitar duo in serious thunder storm!
This comes from the Mr. Fastfinger - in Motion - record release party at Bar Soho, Porvoo Finland in 30.3.2012. One of the most challenging Mr. Fastfinger songs for the whole band. There's just so many little things there. Dangerous twists and turns, explosions and suspense! Usually the only member in the band who plays this right is that cartoon dude in the back corner. But this time we all nailed it pretty good me thinks.
Remember to subscribe. There's more footage coming on from the show.

Song is from the new Mr. Fastfinge album: in Motion.
Available digitally from iTunes, Amazon. CD comes with special Fretboard game and extras. More info here:

Special credits goes to:
Jokke Heikkilä (mixer for the live show and recording the audio)
Raimo Uunila (cameras)
Jocke Lybeck

The fog machine stopped working right before the gig so all smoke here was added in After Effects:)
Respect to the band: Thomas Törnroo, Lasse Rantanen and Kalle Katz.

Guys have learned and re-learned and re-learned this song so many times during the last two years. For every gig it was a bit different. The arrangement kept changing until the very end, right before the album was mixed.

Andy James: live at the Frankfurt Musikmesse 2012

From musikmesse 2012

I'm sure Andy James must think I'm his personal stalker... this will be his 255th post Andy James(254) ... 

Andy James did one say to me that he ever need to know what he was doing he could always look at Truth In shredding :) .

I had seen Andy on a number of occassions over the previous months, from Monkeyfest, Jason Becker Festival in Amsterdam (where he was immense) and the third Guitar Idol final in London.

Musikmesse is a busy place and is the perfect location to capture Andy James up close. He's always got a good sense of humour and likes to jam with the other guitar players at the show, catching up with them for late night jam sessions.
