Paul Sternquist: Dark Matter new CD


Like It? Buy IT! http://www.hrxrecords.com/paulsternquist

Paul Sternquist can be summed up in one word: Virtuoso. Performing with many acts in
Southern California including cult metal icons; Midnight Reign and Rising ...Opening for big name acts including Chris Poland, Foreigner and Johnny Winter. Paul has crafted a sound that is at once unique and reminiscent of the glory days of guitar shred. Blending the blistering fury of Yngwie Malmsteen with the melodic blues-rock stylings of Uli Roth, Paul's music has bridges the divide that separates technique and taste. After many years performing exclusively as a session guitarist and playing the club scene Paul Sternquist will release "Dark Matter" an instrumental concept album Produced by Joseph Michael (Midnight Reign, Ellipsis). The Album will be released on HRX Records and distributed by Hot Topic.

Paco Hernandez: Schecter Hellraiser C8 - Invincible


Here I am again. It´s more than two years for me without uploading videos. Surely two uninspiring and dark years in which, amongst other things, I almost give up music. But all that is History and I´m back with a vengeance: here it is a video of me performing my most recent song, "Invincible", both in guitar and keyboards, in HD and toying for the first time with Adobe Premiere -and all the split screen stuff-. I also play my new -monster!- guitar, a Schecter Hellraiser C8, which I really, really love. I feel like at home when playing it, the EMGs sound better than ever here and the looks are just awesome (especially if you are a Castlevania fan, like me hehe).

This one goes dedicated to Vince DiCola. The song also sort of represents the stages in my mind from the dark moments to the brigh ones in these years. Nothing, I thought, like the vibe of Vince´s music to express a feeling of triumph.

I hope you like it :-)

This is Abiogenesis ∝ Part 1



Here's a 7/8 riff thingy I've been toying around lately, I think it's a perfect example of Abiogenesis' riffing style, there's plenty of that on our stuff.

The riff actually measures 16 beats more, but as I started playing the 7th string the webcam mic started farting, so had to chop it off.
It will definitely be used on our material, although it's pretty hard so I'll have to practice it a bit more hehe :)

I'm using my new Music Man JP12 seven string with Dimarzio Crunch Lab & Liquifire set, tone is Axe Fx II as usual.

Fredrik Andersson: Hybrid Freak Division - Stratus


Hybrid Freak Division was formed in the spring of 2000 by guitarist Fredrik Andersson, bass player Pär Laurén and drummer Björn Nyberg. Hybrid Freak Division is an all instrumental fusion rock outfit wrappedd up in a classic powertrio format. Although improvisation and chaos is a vital part of their music, all Hybrid Freak Division songs feature some kind of melodic and rythmic structure. Finding studio recordings often boring and uninspiring, the band is a genuine hard hitting live-band, which you will be aware of if you ever see them perform in concert.

James Williams: 'Eclectic Shred' Features Symphony X and James Labrie Members



Guitar Virtuoso James Williams To Release New CD 'Eclectic Shred' Featuring Symphony X and James Labrie Members


November 17, 2012 - Plano, TX - Much to the excitement of guitarists around the world, guitar virtuoso James Williams will be releasing his new solo CD 'Eclectic Shred' on October 30, 2012. Featuring guest appearances by Mike LePond from Symphony X and Matt Guillroy from James Labrie/Yngwie Malmsteen, and to be released on the Eclectic Shred label, the new CD by James Williams is an exercise in guitar wizardry, the likes of which have not been heard before!

“Quality songs, quality players. Just an honor to work with James Williams and be part of this kick-ass project.” - Mike LePond, Symphony X

Hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma, James Williams was raised on classical music; his mother was a singer in the church choir and sang Opera locally, and sister sang professionally for the San Francisco Metropolitan Opera for ten years. Composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, Stravinsky, Mozart, Carl Orf, Chopin were all part of James's early musical vocabulary. By the age 12, Jimi Hendrix became his fascination, followed by guitarists Robin Trower, Larry Carlton, Al Dimeola, Gary Moore, Jeff Beck, Alan Holdsworth, Frank Marino, Yngwie Malmsteen and bands like Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Scorpions, ELP, Yes, Boston and Kansas.

James has appeared in Guitar Player Magazine with Mike Varney of Shrapnel Records, who said, “James's impressive guitar pyrotechnics are highlighted by arpeggios, speed picking, vibrato and guitar harmonies that work together to create inspiring high level passages that sometimes remind me of Yngwie Malmsteen.” James has recorded with the late bassist Wyman Tisdale and also legendary bassist/composer/arranger Marcus Miller. Performances with guitarist Norman Brown, saxophonist Gerald Albright and many other top artists, along with years of exposure to classical, jazz, metal and R&B, James has created a diverse sound that is on the cutting edge of today's guitarists. Says James,“My inspiration is always to achieve something musical that will last and inspire others.”

In 2011, Magna Carta Records released the critically acclaimed album by James's under the name X Opus titled 'The Epiphany CD'; the band was essentially James on all instruments with two vocalists. Sea Of Tranquility raved about the album, “If you like heavy progressive music with celestial lyrical themes you most certainly won't go wrong if you invest in this one.” WeLoveMetal.com expressed, “For me personally what stood out was the passion that James Williams talks about comes out on every song and an artist that lays his heart and soul out for the world to explore and critique deserves my applause and genuine appreciation.”

In regards to the outcome of his latest album 'Eclectic Shred', James explains, “There is so much diversity in this record it should satisfy the solo hungry guitar fans, the song composition fans, and anyone who likes fusion with odd time signatures, power Symphony X rhythms to Hendrix, Ynwie and classical lovers of guitar and keys.” Adding to his impressive guitar virtuosity, James also plays bass, keyboards, drum programming, along with composing all the symphony arrangements. He also produced and mixed the album at his personal recording facility, X Opus studio. Says James, “As far as the players on 'Eclectic Shred', I am really happy with how that turned out, as it can be a challenge to communicate to guys that are in other parts of the US and can't come to your studio. However, the players I used were great at doing their thing. I am so happy to be able to have gotten my good friend Mike LePond from Symphony X to play bass on the album – he is a bass god! His timing and interpretation is masterful, and he wrote his own lines and played the way he wanted as he heard it. Mike is the best prog-metal has to offer – Symphony X is my favorite modern metal band and the best out there musically. I got in touch with Matt Guillroy through my good friend Mike Varney, the famed progressive guitar producer who brought us Yngwie and Jason Becker. Matt plays keyboards for James Labrie and has worked with Yngwie – he is better on keys sounding like a guitar than most guitar players. He is a master of the keys and I was so glad to get him on the record shredding solos!” Also included on the recordings are guitarists Dave Thomas and Richard Tull.

In conclusion, James has this to impart to his fans and listeners, “I hope that people benefit spiritually as well as musically from this record.”

Joe Satriani: Chickenfoot box set for Christmas anyone?



Order LV on Amazon - click here! http://amzn.to/SyO8Sa
Order the Box-Set on Amazon- click here! http://amzn.to/SYVZsi

We are proud to announce the release "I+III+LV" by Chickenfoot on January 25th, 2013. The box set will include the worldwide Top 10 debut album "Chickenfoot" and the equally successful follow-up "III" and the limited live release "LV", released in December and limited to 10.000 numbered copies in Europe.

"LV" features over an hour of live music made of four unreleased live songs recorded during the "III" World Tour and a series of very rare digital bonus tracks and B-sides live.

Since their debut album in 2009, Chickenfoot is one of the names mentioned the most in the industry, and one of the most loved among rock fans. Guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, Pepper's drummer Chad Smith together with Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony (ex Van Halen) reinvented the meaning of rock "super-group", even if the fabulous four don't like the definition themselves, having started the band just by jamming in clubs, without the idea of making it a successful recording band.

The worldwide rock community welcomed the band's debut album "Chickenfoot" as one of the most inspired and honest rock record heard in years. "I" became one of the biggest rock successes of 2009. It ended up selling close to one million copies (#3 Platinum record in USA, Gold Impala Award in Europe, thanks to a stunning series of Top 10 chart entries).
The album is included in the box set, for the first time featuring the rare B-Side "Bitten By The Wolf" previously only available on vinyl LP.
The follow-up "III" repeated the success of the first album and showed the band making a big step forward in terms of song-writing and sound identity reminding everybody how arena rock can be a fine art form and the most exciting thing around. The box set includes "III" in its limited CD+DVD version, featuring a bonus DVD with exclusive behind the scenes content, videos and live music.

"LV" Chickenfoot's first live CD, includes rare live versions of their biggest hits like 'Big Foot', 'Oh Yeah' and 'My Kinda Girl' and 4 unreleased live songs from the most recent world tour featuring the phenomenal Kenny Aronoff on drums (stepping in for Chad Smith, being temporary busy with the Chili Peppers...).
For all the most dedicated fans who have already bought "I" and "III" Chickenfoot will make the extra disc "LV" available for a limited period as a stand-alone CD, released all over Europe on December 7th, 2012 (strictly limited to 10.000 numbered copies).

Sammy Hagar expressed his enthusiasm with his proverbial energy when asked to comment about the limited release of "LV".
"Every now and then with great bands some songs just outdo the original recordings live. À la 'Live at Leeds', 'Frampton Comes Alive' etc. I feel these four live Chickenfoot tracks do just that. Especially 'Something Going Wrong'. If it were 20 years ago when DJs were allowed to play what they wanted to play, this song would be a hit at rock radio. There's magic there, check it out. If the fur doesn't come up on your arms it wasn't loud enough!
Crank it up and Enjoy!" - Sammy
