Guthrie Govan: MI clinic stalking incident

I'm sure Guthrie must think I'm some kind of stalker, having seen him a number of times already at the NAMM show, Alvas with the Aristocrats and now MI.

MI is just a short walk from where we are based. So I headed over, to take some photos as I always wondered what GIT and now MI would look like. I also heard that Nili Brosh might be there for an Aristocrats show later in the day and I thought I might be lucky and I might be able to say Hi and grab a photo for the blog.

As I arrived Guthrie was outside talking, so I went over and asked if I could take a photo.

Michael Romeo: Shawn Lane one of Michaels favourites

Shawn Lane, "West Side Boogie"
"I'm going to have to include something from the Powers of Ten record. There's a tune called "West Side Boogie" on there that's got some insane guitar playing on it. It's really mature at the same time, though; the musicality of that guy is amazing."

Misha Mansoor: Periphery (Instrumental)

I'd like to share this recent interview on Eclectic Listener. We talked about moments of transformations that have shaped me into a composer/songwriter.

Thorsten Koehne: Eden's Curse new album details

Multinational Melodic Metal band EDEN’S CURSE are currently in the studio working on their as-yet-untitled, fourth album, which is scheduled for worldwide release via AFM Records in late Summer 2013.

English drummer Pete Newdeck entered the studio in mid January and has now completed recordings on all fourteen tracks at Higher Studios in Tewkesbury.

German virtuoso guitarist Thorsten Koehne began guitar recordings this weekend at COP Studio in Bielefeld, Germany.

Among the fourteen songs selected for recording are Evil & Divine, Break The Silence, Unbreakable, Great Unknown and Devil In Disguise.

Mixing duties will once be performed by the bands long time engineer, Pink Cream 69 and Unisonic bassist, Dennis Ward, whilst German graphic designer Thomas Ewerhard (Edguy, Avantasia, Jorn) completes the same winning team who worked on the bands previous album, 2011′s critically acclaimed Trinity record.

The fourth album will be the first to feature the bands new vocalist, who at this point has yet to be named, from a meticulous audition process.

“The plan was never to rush this appointment” states bassist Paul Logue, who further adds “Our aim is to find the best possible voice and personality for EDEN’S CURSE. Getting to know these guys is a fun but slow process and we are extremely excited about the quality on show“.
Further studio video diaries and news will be posted on the bands official sites at:
