Chris Letchford: Scale the Summit - "Trapped in Ice" Teaser




It's time for preview number VII of the new SCALE THE SUMMIT album "V"!

Today, meet "Trapped In Ice." The video below shows how cover artist Duncan Storr decided to represent the title in the album's artwork.

Says bassist Mark Michell, "It's fun to have an all-out, balls-to-the-wall song on the album. One of my favorite drum moments on the album is how the drums completely intertwine with the solo in the latter half of the song."

Check back tomorrow for another sneak preview of "V"!

Joe Nardulli: Ad Astra - Ad Astra Per Aspera live from 2009



New York based guitarist Joe Nardulli's self-titled debut CD inspired and intrigued a bunch of local progressive rock musos. After jamming with a few, Joe finally found the right people and put a band together. David Penna on drums, J. Levine on bass and Eric Davis on keys brought Joe's solo material to life. Now as a band, AD ASTRA (Latin for "To the stars" - inspired by the title of the closing track of Joe's self-titled debut CD) has taken the compositional process to another level and have completed a full band recording! With tone and melodic sensibilities reminiscent of Steve Morse and Eric Johnson, the focus is on compositions that are tightly structured, eschewing the bombast and length that progressive rock is known for. Smooth, thematic playing styles blend perfectly with soaring, uplifting melodies. Combined with odd and shifting time signatures, you have songs that always keep your interest and never sound monotonous. http://www.adastraband.com/

Jeff Kollman

feeling the need to be close to them around the holiday season. My brother was the last of them to exit this life.

At the same time I feel so incredibly blessed to have this wonderful NEW family with my three girls Tricia, Ella and Lila.

The healing process is always gonna be music for me. Music heals the soul. Music changes and inspires. Where would we be without music? This song is a quick snapshot on the Eve of Christmas 2014 - The Eve Of Reflection...
