Kris Norris: Icons of the Illogical - Kris Norris Projekt - album announced for release by Magna Carta Records


Magna Carta Records

★ Kris Norris Projekt ★ Icons of the Illogical ★

Kris Norris (former lead guitarist with Darkest Hour).
Randy Blythe - (Lamb Of God vocalist) vocals on "Ghostly Shell Removal" & "Remaining Foolish"
Dave Gibson - Drums
Dave Fugman - Bass
Cory Smoot of GWAR recorded, co-produced and mixed the record at his studio Karma Productions in Virginia

Did we really land on the moon? Was there a second shooter? Did Hangar 18 house alien bodies? For guitarist Kris Norris (Darkest Hour, Locust Factor), a self-professed “conspiracy buff”, the truth is out there.

Icons of the Illogical, Norris’ first full-fledged solo record, is a collection largely composed of scorching and subversive progressive metal instrumentals inspired by the lure of alternative history and our willingness to believe in it.

“I don’t necessarily think these conspiracy theories explain the whole truth,” says Norris. “I think I’m more fascinated by the people who believe in these theories. It’s all a matter of interpretation and perspective. How and why do they think like that?”

Norris attempts to answer these questions throughout his 14-track record. Despite a lack of vocal accompaniment, Icons tells many tales with its tightly composed compositions and numerous soaring melodic lead lines. The music shifts in feel from aggressive to downright eerie, sometimes within the same song or guitar solo.

Urszula Stosio: Skydiving, Total Eclipse and Spring - Backyard Music Series



Facebook https://www.facebook.com/urszula.stosio.guitar
Urszula Stosio belongs to a rare species among electric guitarists - though she plays in different bands, she also composes and performs songs for solo guitar, which is a very demanding field of art. She mixes complex compositions with improvisation while also making good conscious use of various guitar effects. And all this complexity doesn't stand in the way of powerful emotion, which filled the welcoming space of "Nie Lubię Poniedziałków" Tea Club on one warm Tuesday afternoon...

Mike Campese: Opening for Geoff Tate's Operation: Mindcrime


Mike Campese Opening for Geoff Tate's Operation: Mindcrime


Yes... It's Now Confirmed!!! Mike Campese will be supporting Geoff Tate of Queensryche on March 4th, at the Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY.

"We are excited about the show and I’m really looking forward to it." ~Mike Campese

Guitar virtuoso Mike Campese is planning a very busy schedule for 2016. After having a great time at NAMM '16 showing off the latest gear from his endorsers as well as his guitar prowess and meeting up with new and old friends, he and his band are gearing up to opening for Geoff Tate's Operation: Mindcrime on March 4th, at the Chance Theater in Poughkeepsie, NY. Multi-platinum selling, Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Geoff Tate is regarded as one of the most skilled vocalists in the rock genre with hundreds of modern, popular artists citing him and his band as a major influence. Combining social consciousness and expertly crafted lyrics with high-energy, melodically complex music, Geoff and his band have become internationally recognized as the thinking man’s rock band.

Moving forward, Mike's top 3 musical goals this year will include releasing a new album with YouTube teaser clips and music video this spring, Touring, and getting new instructional material out there for other aspiring guitar players.

Mike laments about the new album and music...

The new album is very diverse with primarily acoustic and splashes of electric guitar, with a lot of Italy and someHawaii inspirations. This album will have a lot of acoustic material on it and some electric guitar, about 70/30. I released an acoustic album before titled, “Hidden Treasures”, it was pretty much all acoustic. This one mixes in more electric and there is a really nice blend of material on this album. ~Mike Campese

Note: The maestro plays all the instruments on the album himself.

Some of Campese's influences are Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, Paganini, Al Di Meola, and Yngwie Malmsteen, etc.


To keep up with Mike and his musical activities keep checking the website.
