Ultimately, when Travail ends, we are left with an amazing impression of the journey that’s been made. Ending on a single, fading note of the piano, A Sense of Gravity seem to blaze into the distance. In their wake, one is left with a marvelous feeling of completeness. These men know exactly what they want to say and how to say it. Remiss of nothing, whole in a deep sense, Travailis a monumental album, an exploration that is sure to be remembered and played over and over again in years to come.

And so, with all that said, we have the privilege of streaming Travail for you all for today. I hope you enjoy this record as much as I have. I’m pretty much unable to resist heavily fusion-influenced metal of any kind, but this is a flawless record, with stellar musicianship and excellently crafted songs. A Sense of Gravity has the “it” factor that produces great metal.

Christian Muenzner,Per Nilsson: mixing Beyond the Wall of Sleep

Per Nilsson

Meanwhile, somewhere in Sweden: Christian Muenznerand I, mixing his upcoming 2nd solo album - "Beyond the Wall of Sleep". I've listened to ONE MILLION notes today! So. Much. Shred

Check out Christian's Indiegogo campaign, and if you are a fan of this kind of music, you might wanna consider supporting! Counting the number of notes on the album, you won't often get this much bang for the buck

Jason Becker: Seymour Duncan - Perpetual Burn Pickup - kilotons of killer tone!

Jason Becker Perpetual Burn Pickup
Seymour Duncan Pickups
The Jason Becker Signature Humbucker uses an Alnico 5 bar magnet and a hotter-than-vintage wind to provide all the clarity and dynamic punch that his incredible chops demand. Measuring 12.11k DC resistance, this pickup has enough output for shred and metal while remaining sensitive enough for rock, blues, and fusion.

Jason Becker Check out the last video. I love this pickup! It has a little more output than my original blue Carvin.
