Eric Calderone: Doom E1M1 Meets Metal

Hi all!

So haha video game hype! Love it! Doom was the 2nd FPS I ever played. The first one was "The Spear of Destiny". Ever since then, I was hooked. Doom, Duke, Quake, Shadow Warrior, etc. And those 90s games....the music......was superb! And just a little different layout for this one. I figured I did a similar upload with Raining Doom so I wanted to share with the youngsters what the original Doom was all about :) I know when this music kicked in, it was on haha. Thank you all so much for everything! You're the greatest! And you ALWAYS rock my casbah!

Best to ya




Gianluca Ferro: "A Hole In The Ocean" fundraiser for Gianluca's new solo album!

Become part of "A Hole In The Ocean", my new solo album!

I'm working on my third solo album, A Hole In The Ocean and I'm inviting you to be a part of the journey. The purpose of this campaign is to help me finish the album and properly market and promote it. This is an ambitious project featuring many extraordinary musicians among which Nick Pierce, Marco Maggiore, Edo Sala, Michael Manring, Alex Argento, Roberto Gualdi, Rob Iaculli, Isao Fujita and Taku Yabuki. I need you help to finish it, print it, distribute it and repay the priceless contribution that those great friends and fantastic musicians already gave to my project. I have some tasty rewards for you!

I'm raising funds in order to finish my third solo album.
I'm Gianluca Ferro, guitarist and composer from Milan with a strong passion for everything is fresh and different.

My project goes against the commercial music logics; it's a complex challenge, requiring big efforts from the musicians involved. They put all their skills and creativity to let this music become something special and unconventional!

Worthless to say that a work like this takes countless hours spent practicing, mixing, rehearsing and looking for different musical textures.

Almost every musician involved in this adventure, has taken part in it only for the sake of the music, they just played amazingly and didn't want anything in change.

Despite this, many of them had to record in different studios and the costs for their sessions have been significant.

Moreover, once we'll be finished recording and mixing, I'll have to pay for the printing and promotion, that's because I don't want to rely on "independent" label which exploit our dreams, efforts and passions.
I can support this project only thanks to you: it's very easy and you'll have big rewards in change!
Take a look at the detailed offers in the box on the right.

Ontario, Canada, April 18th 2016 – Perri’s are delighted to introduce their new Hootenanny Guitar Straps. These retro straps, made by craftsmen that bought guitarists the wicked Full Air Brushed Strap, have been created with the high degree of attention to artistic design, detail, and comfort that has come to be expected from the company.

Hootenanny is a Scottish word meaning celebration or party that has become a colloquialism in the Appalachian region of the US where many of the settlers were originally Scots. These days it commonly refers to an open mic folk music party where the audience often joins in. The abstract patterns of these funky woven guitar straps have a distinct traditional feel with beautiful colour combinations that are reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s.

Made in Canada, the Hootenanny Guitar Straps straps are 2” wide and fully adjustable from 39” to 58. The striking, ethnic, geometric patterns of the jacquard woven fabric used in the straps comes in ten different colour ways; plenty to chose from for any discerning guitar player. The fabrics high tread count makes if hard wearing whilst its soft texture makes it extremely comfortable to use. The 5oz premium belt leather ends provide a safe and secure fit to most guitars.

News: 660 Guitars Launches Web Site

 660 Guitars Launches Website

After making a huge splash with their debut at this year’s winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California, 660 Guitars announces the launch of their long-awaited website: http://www.660guitars.com/.

The easy-to-navigate website features full-color imagery and high-definition videos. Special features include a two-and-a-half-minute behind-the-scenes interview with company founders Drew Emory and Myke Wilkerson discussing 660’s history, and a step-by-step photo essay explaining the 660 design process. A News section keeps fans up to date on 660 events and activities. The Guitar page offers detailed technical information about all 660 instruments. Customers can select and order their 660 Guitars directly via the website’s shopping cart.

660 Guitars was forged on the friendship of Drew Emory and Myke Wilkerson, independent builders who found they shared the same ideas in constructing guitar bodies out of metal, namely aircraft-grade aluminum. Aluminum is an extremely rugged and durable building material and offers the guitar world a change from traditional wood. The results are warm and resonant guitars with tank-like construction and minimal weather-related issues. 660 Guitars feature powder coating, carbon fiber/graphite necks, and weigh 7 ½ pounds.

Traditional instruments are subject to many issues, including humidity, airline handling, and general use. All 660 Guitars' instruments are handcrafted with pride in the U.S., precision engineered, and built to exacting standards to minimize maintenance and downtime, while ensuring the instruments are around for generations.

Near Life Experience is Keyboard whiz Scott Kinsey's sophomore solo album after Kinesthetics, released almost 10 years ago in 2006. Considered by many to be Tribal Tech's secret weapon, Scott either penned or co-wrote nine out of the twelve tunes on the record. Near Life Experience features a terrific version of Marvin Gaye's Inner City Blues featuring Jason Joseph on vocals as well as the amazing Lalah Hathaway who contributes some incredible wordless vocal improvising on Siya, an element of her artistry seldom heard. The terrific 12 track album features a long list of A-Listers who bring their best to the game; Michael Landau, Kirk Fletcher on guitar, Gary Novak, Danny Carey, Kirk Covington, Gergo Borlai, Karim Ziad on the drums, long time collaborator Matthew Garrison, Jimmy Earl, and Hadrein Feraud on bass along with Arto Tuncoboyacian among others on percussion. While Scott certainly pays homage to his friend and guru Joe Zawinul in moments, he more importantly carves out his own unique and definitive voice like never before, as highlighted on the explosive title track on the album.

From the CB album "The Axis Of All Things". Most of that album had sort of proggy and rock-fusion song structures so I wanted to include a happier Satch/Vai kind of song for fun. Get the song and the album on itunes or http://https://chrisbrooks.bandcamp.com/
