Carl Mörner Ringström: Practicing over "Gigalon", an awesome song by Namebrandsound​.

Monday music! Practicing over "Gigalon", an awesome song by Namebrandsound​. This tempo (84 BPM) is hard as shit for doubling so I guess that's what I'm trying to do. As well as being a bit melodic and sometimes trying to nail the shift between 32nd notes and 16th note triplets with different amounts of success. Enjoy. Ibanez Guitars​ Line 6​ RME​ ADAM Audio​

NAMM: Michael Kelly Guitars Introduce CC50 Fralin Guitar

Michael Kelly Guitars Introduce CC50 Fralin Guitar

Michael Kelly Guitars is once again teaming up with esteemed pickup builder Lindy Fralin for the Michael Kelly CC50 Fralin guitar. The combination of the Steel Poled 43 pickups with the ebony topped body optimizes this custom model to deliver a full, rich, and dynamic tone. These short run guitars are available now and select dealers.

The Steel Poled 43 pickups, named for the steel adjustable pole pieces, have a bar magnet in the back and are wound with 43 gauge wire which gives the pickup 25% more output. The bridge pickup registers at 10k ohms, along the lines of a P-90, making it a very strong single coil. The single coil in the neck registers at 8.5k ohms. In addition to the distinct pickups, the wiring has been modified with a specific set of CTS and Bourne pots and a Mojotone Dijon cap creating a better, cleaner signal. A push-pull feature has also been added to reverse the phase and give additional tone options.

This alder body guitar comes with maple binding and striped ebony top. The 25.5” bolt on maple neck has a 10.5” radius, rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, and dot inlays. The 1950 headstock includes die cast tuning keys. Controls include master and tone volume and a three-way blade switch. The CC50 Fralin is complete with a T-style bridge and a chrome hardware finish.

NAMM: 660 Guitars Unveils Viking Aluminium Guitar at NAMM

660 Guitars Unveils Viking Guitar at NAMM

GILMER, TX JANUARY 8, 2016 – 660 Guitars announced today the introduction of their new Viking model guitar for 2016. The Viking, as well as 660 Guitars, will make their debut at the 2016 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) trade show in Anaheim, California this January. Customers can place orders directly from the factory while they work to establish dealers and distributors worldwide. The Viking is among 660 Guitars’ up and coming robust line of American-made instruments, featuring all-aluminum bodies and graphite/carbon fiber necks.

The 25.5” scale Viking design captures bold engineering and modern playability, while maintaining the principle build features consistent in all 660 Guitars, weighing 7.25 pounds. Handcrafted with USA parts, the Viking’s body is constructed from one piece of aircraft-grade aluminum, paired with a shallow-oval 16” radius solid graphite/carbon fiber neck. The finish is a resilient powder coat, available in multiple color options. The bridge on the Viking is a Hipshot USA Bridge, and Kahler Tremolo is also available. The pickups are 16.50K DiMarzio Dominion humbuckers with ceramic magnets; this model has adjustable pick up positions to change the sound of the guitar. The Viking is fitted with Sperzel Sound-Lock Tuners and series/cut/parallel wiring. Smoked acrylic black glass is standard for the rear cover plate. Hennessy strap locks are standard, and the guitar ships in an RB Aero low-profile case.

660 Guitars was forged on the friendship of builders Drew Emory and Myke Wilkerson, both independent builders and guitarists, who found they shared the same ideas in constructing guitar bodies out of metal, namely aircraft-grade aluminum. Their primary goals were to create a product that had a reliable body that would not break and to always keep the guitarist in mind. Aluminum is an extremely rugged and durable building material, and offers the guitar world a change from traditional wood construction. The results are warm and resonant guitars with tank-like construction, and minimal weather-related issues.

Traditional instruments are subject to wear and damage due to many issues including humidity, airline handling, transportation, and general use. The Viking, along with all of 660 Guitars’ instruments, is handcrafted with pride in the USA, precision engineered, and built to exacting standards to minimize maintenance and downtime, while ensuring the instruments last for generations.

News: Docker's Guild's new album to be released in digital formats on January 21.

Docker's Guild's new album to be released in digital formats on January 21.

Docker's Guild’s new album is titled “The Heisenberg Diaries – Book A: Sounds of Future Past”. It is part of a series of 4 transitional albums placed between the 5 main “seasons” and which focus on an aspect of the storyline’s main character, Dr. Jack Heisenberg. This particular installment focuses on Jack’s youth and love of science fiction, in fact the album contains exclusively vintage science fiction soundtracks reworked in the typical Docker’s Guild sound. “Book A” will be followed by “The Mystic Technocracy - Season II: The Age of Entropy”, already in development. Another unique feature of “Book A” is its all-female cast, which makes it, as far as we know, the first all-female metal opera ever recorded.

Douglas R. Docker has worked with many acclaimed artists such as Tony Franklin, Gregg Bissonette, Guthrie Govan, John Payne, Göran Edman, Tim Bogert, Tony Mills, Therion, The Vivaldi Metal Project, Frantic Amber, Shining Line and Craig Goldie, besides being the keyboardist for internationally acclaimed melodic rock band Biloxi. Biloxi's debut "Let the Games Begin" obtained worldwide success, reaching n. 10 in the Japanese charts (Burrn! Magazine) and n. 1 in England as the best import CD of 1993 (Kerrang! Magazine), as well as collecting an impressive amount of rave reviews worldwide. In the last couple years, Docker has become a rather demanded special guest and session player, having been featured on albums from bands and projects such as The Vivaldi Metal Project (where he is also co- developer of the concept and writer of all the lyrics), Tony Mills, Frantic Amber, Shining Line, Rustfield and many more.

The overall story arc of Docker’s Guild’s space opera is rather complex and has been worked out in great detailed. Album after album, you will visit the dark world of The Mystic Technocracy, where a silicon-based techno-organic alien race attempts to wipe out all life on Earth through organized religion, while a tormented scientist makes it his mission in life to save humanity. His quest will take him across the universe and on a personal journey from which there is no return.
You will meet many characters such as Dr. Jack Heisenberg, Tith, ZZ-999, Cardinal Berengar Yersinia, Lucy Friedmann, Adam V and many more. You will visit the alien worlds of Silix IV and Carbonia in the Andromeda Galaxy, and travel back in time to the age of dinosaurs to witness their extinction.
Top-notch progressive metal space opera in the vein of Star One, Ayreon and Avantasia.

Complex and detailed storyline which unfolds through 5 seasons and 9 albums. World-class performances by an all-female cast comprising Elize Ryd, Amanda Somerville, Nita Strauss, Roxy Petrucci, Anna Portalupi, Mio Jäger,
Yasi Hofer, Valentina Procopio and Elisa Montin.

Docker's Guild has easily become a reference point in the progressive scene
after the release of its 2012 debut album. Its sophomore effort builds on the strengths of the first one and stands out for its orchestral and vocal arrangements, superb keyboards work, stellar vocal performances and the deep and well-structured concept.

Produced by Douglas R. Docker (Docker’s Guild, Biloxi, Area 51)
Co-produced and mixed by Alessandro Del Vecchio (in-house producer and main songwriter at Frontiers Records, producer of Hardline, Revolution Saints, Rated X, etc.) and Douglas R. Docker

Mastered by Alessandro Del Vecchio

Superb visionary artwork by Carl-Andrè Beckston (TNT, House of Lords, Edguy, etc.)
