Sam Bell: Hungover Fusion Strat Jam (HD

I have had this Stratocaster since I was young. When I started taking music "seriously" in college when I was 17, it was the guitar I would woodshed with. Last night my good friend Lewis Ryan came over with his Strat, and I decided to get my Strat out the loft, we were jamming to lots of Daft Punk tunes and Nile Rodgers whilst drinking lots of red wine and disaronno. So today I have a huge hangover and I wanted to post a quick jam with the old Stratocaster. Apologies for the atrocious playing!

Mario Parga,Beth-Ami Heavenstone: Graham Bonnet heads up the new acoustic trio - Bonnet, Parga & Heavenstone

Mario Parga is pleased to announce that he has formed a new Los Angeles based all-acoustic trio called Bonnet, Parga & Heavenstone with his longtime friend Graham Bonnet (Rainbow/MSG/Alcatrazz) on vocals and rhythm guitar, and Beth-Ami Heavenstone (Hardly Dangerous/Tomi Rae Brown) on acoustic bass and backing vocals. Mario (Mario Parga/Cozy Powell/Forcefield) will provide lead acoustic guitar and backing vocals to the trio, who are currently recording new material and rehearsing for live shows around the world.

Mario said: "I've always loved acoustic music and have played the acoustic guitar along with the electric since I began playing years ago. The acoustic trio will give us the opportunity to play a variety of songs, from old to new and a couple of instrumentals in an 'unplugged' environment with a clear, clean sound. The acoustic guitar has great dynamics, and it can be used to great effect for rhythms and solos. Graham sounds particularly amazing in an acoustic setting, he's able to use his entire vocal range and dynamics, from the softest melodies to, well, Graham! Beth-Ami's acoustic bass powers and grooves the trio with the bottom end, and her backing vocals compliment Graham's voice. Beth's been around on the L.A. circuit for decades and can play just about anything. We have a few new songs that are being recorded at my place and will be featured on our website soon ( Live shows are currently being set up and will be announced on the trio's website, we hope to see our old fans and new at the acoustic shows, and for them to hear us in a new setting."

Yuval Ron,Falk Bonitz: Residents Of The Future - Flags featuring Tammy Scheffer - high quality fusion

Yuval Ron -- Electric Guitar | Falk Bonitz -- Keyboards | Roberto Badoglio -- Bass | Yatziv Caspi -- Drums | Featuring Tammy Scheffer on Vocals

Look all above
Walls of concrete and glass
The world below
Matters no more to them than us 
Question the call
When there are rules to be made
Because it's all about their debt when it must be paid

It's a well-known game no one would like to defy
But I've got my edge to admit it:

When their interest is gone, you're all on your own
Looking out for a way
It's a matter of trust -
Are we here to abide
To the flags that are waving?
Music and lyrics by Yuval Ron

Produced by Yuval Ron, 2013
Music production and mix by Fountainhead
Video production by Martin Bahre
Engineered by Christian Bader at Studio P4

Lee Luland: Prospekt - The Colourless Sunrise

This Autumn, Sensory Records will release the energetic and unrestrained nine-track opus entitled The Colourless Sunrise -- the maiden full-length album from Oxford, England’s PROSPEKT -- now locked down for an October 22nd street date. "A Desolate Kingdom" is the album's glorious opening song.

The recently completed The Colourless Sunrise was recorded by the band and then mixed by world renowned producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Daylight Dies, Amon Amarth, Symphony X) and Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood (of Periphery), and mastered by Borgen as well. Surging beyond the one-hour mark, the huge The Colourless Sunrise recording builds upon the solid foundation PROSPEKT constructed on their self-titled 2011-released debut EP, expanding their spires of vibrant, modern take on their respective genre to much greater heights. Influenced by bands such as Dream Theater, Symphony X, Opeth and Circus Maximus, as well as film scores and fusion, PROSPEKT combines the fierce technicality of progressive metal with the symphonic elements of contemporary prog. From brutal riffs coupled with odd time-signatures, to majestic melodies, the principle of the band’s music is to create an intelligent and atmospheric mix of melodic, modern progressive metal. Incorporating passionate higher ranged vocals, frenetic guitar work, haunting orchestration and solid grooves, every composition remains both interesting and original. The album’s cover art was created by Mattias Noren / ProgArt Media (Into Eternity, Evergrey, Wolverine, etc.).
