Dustin Behm: Carvin HH2X, Carvin DC800 delivering great slabs of fusion goodness

Dustin Behm  Thanks Josh!! Stoked you guys are doing the PDP thing, man!! It is indeed a chambered headless Holdsworth Carvin. Highly recommended if you get a chance to try one out. They're very light, small, and comfortable, but sound huge! Here's a pic of mine; matte black other than the spalted top and abalone accents. Now they just need to make them in an 8 string so I don't have to save so much for a Strandberg.

Burcu Ozdereli: Marlinspike - original composition - she's a native of Toronto, Canada

Burcu Ozdereli
Burcu Ozdereli is a musician from Toronto, Canada.

Burcu Ozdereli, a Turkish Heavy Metal guitarist and singer who has over ten year experience overseas is currently in Toronto.Her extreme style of guitar playing is a tug of war between Death Metal and oriental harmonies which she has in her blood.Her music has an epic and thought-provoking sound to it that she hopes to take you on a musical journey.

Burcu has a sound that is original and heartfelt while remaining utterly brutal and true to her traditional metal roots and also her complex shredding has been the central part of her music.

This is my relatively new song Marlinspike I've recorded using my 7-string BC Rich JRV 7 Pro Tools / Axe FX 2 / Superior Drummer.

Enjoy and do not forget to send some feedback ;)

Peter Banks: Rare 1973 Live Concert Recording 'Flash – In Public' To Be Released

Rare 1973 Live Concert Recording Of Prog Legends Flash Featuring Peter Banks 'Flash – In Public' To Be Released
October 29, 2013

Asheville, NC - Much to the anticipation of progressive rock fans worldwide, for the first time, a rare recording of UK prog group Flash, featuring legendary guitarist Peter Banks, from January 21, 1973 will be released on CD on October 29, 2013. Titled 'Flash – In Public', this historic and exciting concert recording features the original Flash line-up – Peter Banks, Colin Carter, Ray Bennett and Mike Hough in rare form live at Kansas City's Cowtown Ballroom. The show was taped on the very first mobile truck for The Record Plant. Flash were on the same bill that evening with The Byrds, who would disband after a few more dates. The shows were all recorded for the Lee Jeans & Cotton concert series – the first nationally syndicated rock concert series!

Peter Banks: Flash

Tracks include:
Small Beginnings 8:36
Black And White 12:23
Stop That Banging 4:10
There No More 8:45
Children Of The Universe 8:43
Dreams Of Heaven 24.54

The CD was finished by Flash crew member George Mizer and serves also as a tribute to the late Peter Banks, who passed away just days before finishing the final mix in March 2013. Says George, ""1972-73 was a very special time for me and my love for music in general, getting to go out on the road with one of my favorite bands was unreal for me, now 40 years later we are getting the first complete Flash concert recording ever to be released. Even with the loss of Pete Banks in March I am sure he would have been pleased with the 'Flash featuring Ray Bennett and Colin Carter' release - if you haven't got it yet you are missing a treat.""

Steve Hackett: ""I remember Pete in the early seventies as a friend and superb guitarist. Phil Collins and I were fans of Pete and his band Flash. Pete's talent extended way beyond the work he did with YES. I remember him very well.""

Tony Kaye: ""To play keyboards with Peter in YES and later with Flash was always an honor and a challenge. He never compromised his guitar style and always pushed for the best from the musicians he played with.""

New 2 disc set from Steven Wilson featuring unreleased tracks, videos, live recordings and high-resolution audio – available on Blu-ray & CD and CD & DVD

Available from October 21st (22nd in US/CA)

In February 2013 Steven Wilson released 'The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories)', his third solo album. The album was a huge critical and commercial success, earning numerous 5 star reviews and charting well across the world, debuting at #3 in the German national chart, #28 in the UK top 40, #57 in the US Billboard top 200, #16 in Holland and #17 in Finland.

Prior to these dates, Drive Home, a new audio-visual package will be released as a Blu-ray & CD set and as a CD & DVD set.

The Blu-ray and DVD feature the new video for lead track 'Drive Home' along with the video for 'The Raven That Refused To Sing', both directed by Jess Cope. They also include four tracks recorded live in Frankfurt during the recent tour.

In addition, the Blu-ray and DVD feature audio recordings of two previously unreleased tracks, 'The Birthday Party' and an orchestral version of 'The Raven That Refused To Sing'. 'The Birthday Party' was recorded in LA at the same sessions as the tracks that made up the album while the version of 'The Raven That Refused To Sing' is a new mix that strips the track back to just the orchestra and vocals.

All the songs on the Blu-Ray and DVD are mixed in both stereo and 5.1 sound, including the two audio only titles. The audio on the Blu-Ray is full lossless 96/24 throughout. These tracks are also included on the CD, along with the audio from the live tracks and an edit of 'Drive Home'.
