Jason Hook: demos his M4-Sherman Explorer

Jason Hook has displayed some of the most incendiary playing and eviscerating tone heard in rock today. A customized Gibson Explorer has long been at the forefront of Jason's arsenal, and that same furious style, tone, and attitude forms the foundation for the new Jason Hook M4 Sherman from Gibson USA, available in a strictly limited edition of 400 guitars. Based on one of the most radical guitars ever created, Gibson's original Explorer model

Anders Björler: details on Antikythera, his upcoming solo release.

Anders Björler - "Antikythera"

Out on Razzia Notes, November 6, 2013

Anders Björler - Guitars, Mellotron, Moog
Morgan Ågren - Drums & Percussion
Dick Lövren - Bass
Carl Svensson - Additional Electric & Acoustic Guitars
Peter Wiberg - Piano
Anders Gabrielson - Tenor Saxophone

Mixed & Mastered by Tue Madsen (Antfarm Studio, DK)

Artwork & Layout design by Costin Chioreanu (Twilight13Media)

More info:

Most of us associate guitar player Anders Björler with chewing guitars and high-energy thrash metal assaults. With At The Gates he invented the influential Gothenburg Sound and with The Haunted, Swedish Grammy award winners twice, he confirmed his position as a unique creator of infectious riffs.
But when Anders Björler makes his debut as a solo artist he chooses a whole different path.

“Antikythera” focuses around his love for Italian movie soundtracks from the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s and adds a healthy dose of English prog rock, jazz, post-rock and a pinch of Swedish folk music. Anders Björler has recorded an album that paints pictures in your head, a kind of music best listened to with your eyes closed. The sounds might even take you all the way to the Greek island Antikythera in the year of 1901. That is when a diver discovers parts of an antique analogue computer, dated to around 87 before our era.
This is the kind of magical travels that Anders Björler offers with his music. If the recordings he did with At The Gates and The Haunted was a perfect warm-up to a night out this is the big exhalation, the day after. It is a time for reflection.

The 12 songs require musicians with great perception and depth — and Anders Björler has found them. Extraordinary drummer Morgan Ågren has played with everyone from Frank Zappa to Tony Iommi, bass player Dick Lövgren tours with Meshuggah and piano player Peter Wiberg was a member of the legendary The Spotnicks during the 70′s. Together with guitarist Carl Svensson and saxophonist Anders Gabrielson they handle Anders Björlers songs with great care and give the album an organic feeling.
“Antikythera” was mixed by Tue Madsen, known for his work with The Haunted among others.
– Even though this is not a metal album I wanted a lively production with great dynamics. There is also a certain security about collaborating with someone I have worked with in the past. He is someone I can trust, says Anders Björler who firmly claims that he will never stop playing metal.
– Absolutely not. But this is the album I wanted to do at this time. Even with The Haunted and At The Gates there were melancholic and progressive parts that I have developed further with “Antikythera”.

The solo debut presents integrity and demands an open mind. And the reward for those who take the time to really listen is so much bigger.
This is the album Anders Björler has wanted to do for a long time and we are all welcome into his cinematic world. It is an exciting journey to places you did not think even existed.

David Bond: Allan Holdsworth - Countdown Solo Cover

Hi folks! Here's a video of me playing Allan Holdsworth's solo from Countdown (by John Coltrane) over a latin feel, at 250bpm which is about the tempo on the record. Apologies for the slightly clunky sounding backing track, I was using iRealB and although it's great for practice, it doesn't sound amazing.

Anyway, this is intended in the most respectful way possible, Allan is one of my guitar heroes and if I can become a 10th of the player that he is in my lifetime, then I'd consider that time well spent!

Shawn Lane, Richard Hallebeek: Some never before released footage of Shawn Lane recording his solos for the track 'Enigma'

Some never before released footage of Shawn Lane recording his solos for the track 'Enigma' for the cd Richard Hallebeek Project, april 17, 2003. The first half of the video shows Shawn playing through the track, and the 2nd half is how it ended up on the cd. Shawn used two Line 6 delay modelers to achieve the high pitched delayed lines. One was on the floor and the other one was on the table in front of him so he could turn the knobs.

This was the last thing Shawn recorded before he sadly passed away sept. 26th, 2003. The CD was released on Liquid Note Records in 2005. To celebrate Shawn's spirit and music, RHP will be remastered and rereleased 2014 on Richie Rich Music. The CD is available at:
