Allan Marcus: .strandberg* guest solo for Nic Grobolsek - killer licks

I hope to catch up with Allan Marcus at NAMM... meantime enjoy.

Did a little guest solo for my buddy in Germany, Nic Grobolsek. Needless to say, this one is pretty challenging, but had fun writing it.
Something happened with the audio compression when i saved it on YouTube. A little weird, but not the end of the world. ;)
Tracked using my .strandberg* True Temperament 8 string loaded with EMG 57-66 pickups into a Mesa/Boogie .50 caliber + and cab sim with the Two Notes Engineering Wall of Sound III.
Hope you like, and please share and sub!!!

Christian Muenzner,Danny Tunker,Morean: Alkaloid - About "C-Value Enigma" - a tribute to Shawn Lane Kaiser Nancarrow?

Crowdfunding Campaign:
Official Website:
On Facebook:

"C-Value Enigma" is a guitar based song of ALKALOID's debut album "The Malkuth Grimoire" .

On December 1st 2014, Germany's prog metal band ALKALOID have launched a crowdfunding campaign on According to the band's facebook, the campaign will help to finance the eagerly awaited debut album entitled "The Malkuth Grimoire". Besides CDs and T-shirts, the band is offering perks which include personal items and equipment from the current and from previous recordings. The campaign is running for 60 days, in which the intended amount of 12,000 € should be collected.

Alkaloid is a new band formed by former and current members of Obscura, Necrophagist, Aborted, Dark Fortress, Noneuclid and Blotted Science.
Line up:
Morean (Dark Fortress, Noneuclid) - Vocals, Guitars
Christian Muenzner (Spawn of Possession, Ex-Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist) - Guitars
Danny Tunker (Aborted, Ex-God Dethroned) - Guitars
Linus Klausenitzer (Obscura, Noneuclid) - Bass
Hannes Grossmann (Blotted Science, Ex-Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist) - Drums

Drummer Hannes Grossmann (Blotted Science, Ex-Obscura, Ex-Necrophagist) speaks out:
"Even though all of us have worked with record labels for years, we're not going to work with a label this time. Labels just expect music that you can label! However, the music of Alkaloid is very diverse and sometimes radically new. We are music lovers ourselves and write music for other people who love music. And to keep it as simple as that, we'd like to connect with these people as directly as possible. Crowdfunding is the perfect instrument to do that."

Describing the band's music, singer Morean states:
"One thing that has been clear since the beginning is that there will always be more
than one element present. We define this band through the field of tension created
between opposites. All of us are active death metal musicians who nevertheless all
have a much broader view of music than blastbeats and growls. We can try to
establish from the beginning that we have many faces, and that oscillating between
(seemingly) contrary or mutually exclusive styles is a factor."
