Richard Hallebeek: joins the ranks of Fractal Audio Axe FxII endorser

Richard Hallebeek

Now an official Fractal Audio Axe FxII endorser!

And this is what I think about the Axe FXII:
"After years of tone chasing, with the Axe-Fx II I’m now finally able to get the tone I have in my head and get to it with the fun and ease of programming through Axe Edit.
The Axe-Fx has been my homebase since 2011. It lets me blast my guitars and amps in the middle of the night without disturbing any... See Morefeeling proud with Tymon Kruidenier, Dweezil Zappaand Marco Sfogli.

Warrel Dane,Lenny Rutledge: SANCTUARY to kick off West coast tour this week

SANCTUARY to kick off West coast tour this week

Having recently released their first new album in 25 years, Seattle's metal legends, SANCTUARY, are now ready to hit the West coast this week! See below for all upcoming dates:

Nov. 14 - Seattle, WA - S7
Nov. 15 - Vancouver, BC - Rickshaw
Nov. 16 - Portland, OR - Hawthorne
Nov. 19 - Anaheim, CA - The Grove
Nov. 20 - Las Vegas, NV - LVCS
Nov. 21 - Phoenix, AZ - Club Red
Nov. 22 - San Diego, CA - Ramona Mainstage

SANCTUARY's new album, The Year The Sun Died, is the long-awaited follow-up to the band's first two studio albums that were released on Epic Records: Refuge Denied(1987) and Into the Mirror Black (1989). Singer Warrel Dane's sky-high vocals combined with guitarist Lenny Rutledge's more mature take on classic thrash riffs separated the group from the throes of metal acts struggling to get noticed at the time. With The Year The Sun Died, SANCTUARY continues that legacy that they started decades ago, delivering yet another fresh take on "classic-sounding" metal. For a preview of the album, be sure to check out the following previously released singles:  "Frozen", "Exitium (Anthem of the Living)", "Arise and Purify".

The Mule Does Floyd!

Rock torchbearers Gov’t Mule are celebrating their 20th anniversary with an extensive tour and a series of dynamic live archival releases that highlight the group’s versatility and epic, fearless live performances. No two Gov’t Mule shows are alike, as the band draws on the more than 300 songs in their repertoire (and often a host of special guests) to create a unique experience each and every time. Their steadily expanding fan base knows that the Mule always has something special waiting for them. Expect the unexpected.

Dark Side of the Mule will be released on December 8, 2014, and features 90 minutes of Pink Floyd covers recorded during the band’s Halloween 2008 show at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA. There will be three configurations including a standard version (1-CD), a deluxe version (3-CD/1-DVD package featuring the entire 3-hour performance). A double vinyl version will be available around January 12, 2015.All configurations feature newly-mixed and mastered audio.

Jess Lewis: incredible cover of Larry Carltons '(It Was) Only Yesterday'

Jess Lewis - (It Was) Only Yesterday

Jess Lewis has proven over the years that she can replicate any classic track with complete precision and pure beauty. Well, she has done it again!

Using her trusty Fractal Axe FX ii to dial in the perfect tone, she has reconsructed Larry Carlton's '(It Was) Only Yesterday' track note perfect. This track may not have a billion notes, but in order to get the performance just right takes sheer class.....which Larry definately has, and Jess has proven she also has in abundance!

As this track is a cover we cannot offer the transriptions, however we have written up some notes for you to study when you tackle playing over the backing track!

Check out the performance below and enjoy this free download which comes with Jess' solo track, backing track, vdieo performance and track notes.

Jess uses preset patch 24 'Friedman HBE' of the Fractal Axe FX II, to recreate this classic Larry Carlton tone.
