Brett Garsed, Richard Hallebeek, Peter Fernandes: Red Barrage Aquarium

Original music by Jun Senoue and Kenichi Tokoi for the video game, "Sonic Adventure" (Sega, 1999) for the Sega Dreamcast. I love the soundtrack from this game so I wanted to do a cover with some of the best guys I know!

Billy Gibbons: is working on a solo album inspired by Cuban music

Billy Gibbons is working on a solo album inspired by Cuban music – and he took advice from Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl before deciding to take the project seriously.

And despite his blues background, he describes the side-project as something of a return to his roots.

Gibbons tells Rolling Stone: “When I was 13 I got a guitar and my dad, being the consummate entertainer, sent me to New York to study Latin percussion.

“I learned maracas, timbales, clavas, bongos – you name it. And having lived in Mexico a couple of years, I know just enough Spanish to get me in trouble.”

He adds: “It’s turning out to be such an obtuse, oddball, unexpected left-turn from ZZ Top. But there is something to it.”

He’s nearing completion on the work, before rejoining his main outfit to resume the touring plans that were interrupted when Dusty Hill suffered a tour bus fall.

Martin Miller: Under a Glass Moon solo

Martin Miller - Under a Glass Moon solo (Dream Theater)
Martin Miller
This was one of the most influential solos in my formative years and I never gave it a serious shot until now. I tried to be as true to the original as possible as far as phrasing, tone, articulation, positions, etc. go. Obviously I don't have a floating tremolo, so this is the best I can do. This beast of a solo sure took a couple of takes!

Gianluca Ferro: the album Unheimlich now available via Jam Track Central

Gianluca Ferro Unheimlich

Celebrated Italian guitarist Gianluca Ferro (Doomsword, Time Machine, Heart Of Sun) offers his second solo album, 'Unheimlich.' Taking distinct influences from the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, and John Petrucci, prolific Italian guitarist Gianluca Ferro has crafted another winner in his increasingly impressive discography.

Having taken part in progressive metal bands such as Time Machine, Heart of Sun, and Arkhe (among others), Gianluca has been constantly proving his worth as a multi-faceted and talented guitarist. His latest solo album, Unheimlich, shows him in his most comfortable and confident state in his entire career. Taking his influences from the shred-metal scene and seamlessly melding it together with progressive metal and jazz fusion, Gianluca Ferro has created a one-of-a-kind prog metal album that I'd encourage all fans of instrumental music to check out.

The music here is a mixture of progressive rock/metal, jazz fusion, shred metal, and even touches of instrumental thrash metal. Although this doesn't sound like something that's new, Gianluca Ferro manages to combine these sounds into an instrumental mix that's simultaneously enjoyable and original.
This one comes highly recommended to all fans of instrumental jazz- influenced prog metal!

Cailyn Lloyd: new album Voyager

+Cailyn Lloyd

25 years ago today, Voyager took the famous Pale Blue Dot photograph...

The Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken in 1990 by Voyager I from a distance of about 3.7 billion miles. At the urging of Dr Carl Sagan, Ground Control issued a command that directed the distant space craft to turn around and, looking back, to take photos of each of the planets it had visited. From Voyager's vast distance, the Earth was captured as a infinitesimal point of light, actually smaller than a single pixel of the photo. The image was taken with a narrow angle camera lens, with the Sun quite close to the field of view. Quite by accident, the Earth was captured in one of the scattered light rays caused by taking the image at an angle so close to the Sun.

Track 10 from the album Voyager (2015)

About Ariel: Ariel is named after a sky spirit in Shakespeare's The Tempest. The moon is relatively free of large impact craters and has a complex surface consisting of cratered terrain, smooth plains, and rugged terrain cross-cut by scarps, ridges, and interconnected canyons, some which are hundreds of miles long and more than seven miles deep. There is also evidence of volcanism, tectonics, and cryolava flows.

Ariel is the fourth largest of the 27 known moons of Uranus and much of the detailed knowledge of Ariel derives from a single flyby of Uranus by Voyager II which photographed about a third of the moon's surface.
