Josh Christian: Toxik - Crooked Crosses Snippet - awesome snippet from upcoming release

Josh Christian comments on the new music: "I know it's been a long time, and one of the things I always think about is my own reaction when I hear about older bands recording. It's, like, 'Oh, no... not again,' because, let's be honest, it's usually an underwhelming listen and a lot of times it kills the band's legacy for the fans. But I have a feeling that people are going to be surprised by the intensity and power of our new material. The songwriting demos, which are really just me arranging the parts and programming drums, have been getting rave reviews from random listeners in the band's circle... It's so inspiring for us. We haven't spun off into nu-metal and we aren't trying to rewrite 'World Circus'. It's definitely TOXIK, but it isn't your dad'sversion." more

Lyle Watt: Seven Days (Sting) - live band

Hi everyone, I'm sorry for not posting anything for quite a while, I've been incredibly busy with various things lately, and when I've had a bit of free time, the last thing I wanted to do was more work! I'll be getting back on top of it soon though, I've got a lot of ideas for new videos. In the meantime, here's a version of "Seven Days" from our set at the Edinburgh Guitar Festival a few weeks ago.

The band is:
Hugh Cox - drums
Shaun Struthers - bass
Andy McLaughlan - guitar

My setup for this was:
Cornford Roadhouse 30 head
Framus 2x12 with Vintage 30s
Wampler Euphoria overdrive (in front)
TC Electronic Flashback X4 delay (in loop)

This video might not be up for long, so enjoy it while it's here...

Eric Calderone: new EP + Chrono Trigger Meets Metal
Hey guys,

So, haha, a request I've been getting for years now. I was very weary about doing this one because I love Chrono Trigger and all the music that went with it. Very hard to narrow it down to just "some" themes and make a medley out of them. You guys totally helped on Facebook though, so big ups for that. And a huge thanks for everything else. It means the entire world. Big ups for all the suggestions, comments, subs, messages, donations, fan art, and support. You guy ALWAYS rock the casbah. ALWAYS!

Best to ya

Roger Pedersen: review "astonishing technique of Norway’s king of the shredders"

Roger Pedersen: More Is More

Roger counterbalances intensity with an understated sense of humour which frequently pops up in his evocative song titles. Instrumental rock music sometimes stumbles over the final hurdle of finding a suitable song title, but Pederson’s song titles reflect the pace and density of his music. Thus on ‘Hail In A Hurricane’, the intensity of his frenetic playing and accompanying keyboard stabs sound like a wasp in a jam jar. Two songs later he actually calls a song ‘Wasps’, while other titles such as ‘Circus’, ‘ThePingPongSong’, ‘Melody’ and ‘GuitarDrumBizarreThing’ tell their own story... To the untutored ear, guitar shredding can lose its appeal long before the half way mark of an album like this. But if you give the music the attention it deserves, there are sparkling little cameos to be unearthed, dynamic resolutions to be enjoyed and uplifting melodies to sooth the soul, all intricately wrapped up by the astonishing technique of Norway’s king of the shredders
