This is a song written about a nightmare I had a few years back, sort of a wishmaster kind of thing. I'd struck up a deal to punish someone who'd betrayed me, and the punishment ended up being much worse than I'd imagined. (It was a nightmare, I wish no harm on anyone!)

Eyal Levi, Joey Sturgis: will kick off the next "Unstoppable Recording Machine" audio boot camp workshop

ORLANDO, Fla. - Eyal Levi, critically acclaimed guitarist, composer, producer and engineer, and renowned producer, Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men, I See Stars), will kick off the next "Unstoppable Recording Machine" audio boot camp workshop tomorrow at Levi's private studio in Orlando, Fla. Special guests, guitarist/songwriter/producer Keith Merrow and drummer Alex Rüdinger (Conquering Dystopia, ex-The Faceless), will join Levi and Sturgis for 40-plus hours of personalized recording instruction over the next four days. For more information on the Orlando workshop and future "Unstoppable Recording Machine" dates, head over to:

"People who have gone through the boot camp experience have told me that they learned more in four days than in their entire recording school career to date," said Levi. "When I was coming up, I would have given anything to have some of my recording heroes sit me down and tell me 'this is how it's done.'"

"Whether you struggle with recording, production, editing or mixing and mastering, this boot camp is going to help you learn directly from successful people in the field," commented Sturgis. "It's not about tips or tricks. It's about real knowledge that can only come from real experience. Come extract that directly at the source."

Levi describes the "Unstoppable Record Machine" boot camps as "intense, hands-on, comprehensive immersion style experiences that will show people exactly what matters when trying to make pro sounding recordings. In just a few days, we will cover what would take a year or more in traditional school." He has already hosted successful workshops in Cleveland, Ohio, Orlando, Fla. and Portland, Ore., which have featured special guests like Matt Heafy (Trivium) and Anup Sastry (Jeff Loomis, Intervals), as well as returning instructors Joey Sturgis and Keith Merrow.

Born in Atlanta, Ga. into a musical family, Eyal Levi was already playing violin and piano by the age of three, and composed his first symphonic work when he was just 17.

In 2010, Levi moved to Orlando, Fla. where he joined forces with Jason Suecof (August Burns Red, The Black Dahlia Murder) and Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) at Audiohammer Studios. There he helped to both expand and enrich their facilities by adding a magnificent drum room, two new control rooms and sleeping quarters for the bands.

As a part of the Audiohammer family, Eyal Levi worked with such acts as Job for a Cowboy, August Burns Red, Six Feet Under, Carnifex, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, Deicide, Death Angel, I Killed The Prom Queen, The Contortionist, Motionless In White, Arsis, Demon Hunter, Firewind, Charred Walls of the Damned, The Black Dahlia Murder, Battlecross, DevilDriver and Reflections.

Aside from his work behind the glass, Levi has toured the world and released three studio albums with Dååth, while also releasing an instrumental guitar album with Emil Werstler on Magna Carta called Avalanche of Worms. Recently, he has taught several CreativeLive 'Music & Audio' courses on topics ranging from audio engineering, to songwriting and more.

Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller, Marco Minnemann: The Aristocrats reveal the title of their third studio album and US tour dates!

You've waited long's the official announcement!
The Aristocrats reveal the title of their third studio album:
Tres Caballeros
Plus: North America Summer 2015 Tour Dates Announced
“virtuosic, melodic, spontaneous, outrageous and fun” [Guitar World]

(photo by Mike Mesker)
Fresh off their wildly successful 2013-2014 Culture Clash world tour, The Aristocrats – by any measure the hottest new band in instrumental rock/fusion today – rewrote their own rules for their third studio album, Tres Caballeros, which is slated for release in late June.
After two fairly raw trio albums, guitarist Guthrie Govan (Steven Wilson, Asia/GPS), bassist Bryan Beller (Joe Satriani, Dethklok) and drummer Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani) set up camp at legendary Sunset Sound studios in Hollywood, CA, where Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and Van Halen all recorded landmark albums.
The result: Nine new compositions of greater sonic depth and breadth than ever before, with unique textures and lush layering augmenting the band’s preternatural ability to improvise both individually and as a group at the highest levels possible. But not to worry – it’s all still tempered with a steadfast refusal to take themselves too seriously, and The Aristocrats are still having more fun than a fusion band has any right to have.
“We’ve learned a lot since we started this band – four years, three studio albums, two live DVDs and about a billion notes ago! – and I think our latest offering reflects this in all kinds of ways,” says guitarist Guthrie Govan. “The decision to road-test our new material in front of a live audience before commencing the recording process; the choice to record in a studio which had some thoroughly inspiring rock'n'roll 'mojo'; our sudden urge to become more bold and experimental with overdubs rather than feeling any pressure to record exclusively in a strict 'trio' format… all of this has had some kind of positive effect on the way the new record came out. Plus, I think the material on this album is some of the most interesting stuff we’ve ever written for each other, so… here’s hoping our noble listeners will like the finished product as much as we do!”
The Tres Caballeros tour will bring the band’s new musical vision in trio form to stages across North America in their most ambitious jaunt yet. The Aristocrats will be supported by fellow rock/fusion power trio The Travis Larson Band.

Full details on each date can be found on the Aristocrats website calendar page

One more thing we'd like to share with you: we still get asked about transcriptions and backing tracks all the time. Do we have them for Culture Clash and the debut eponymous album? For every instrument (on Culture Clash, at least)? Yes we do! Our friends at Jam Track Central have all of this stuff, and they've got a little thing going this month where you'll get 30% off if you use the discount code AR30 before the end of March.

It's that simple. Using the code, that is - as for learning and playing Guthrie's or Bryan's or Marco's parts, you're on your own. ;-)
Stay tuned for more info about the new album and more in the coming weeks...and hope to see you somewhere out on the road this summer!

Best wishes to all,
The Aristocrats
