Octavision is a band that was formed by guitarist and principal songwriter Hovak Alaverdyan. Founded in 2016, it features world renowned bass virtuoso Victor Wooten, keyboardist Steve Weingart, keyboardist Ara Torosyan, and drummer Roman Lomtadze.

Their debut single, entitled "Three Lives" is a three-part progressive metal piece which much like the band's style as a whole incorporates aspects of heavy metal, progressive rock, as well as ethnic musical styles and instruments.

The single will be followed up with an album in the near future.

Kazoku: An Undying Illusion - Guitar Playthrough

"This is the debut track from my new musical project [家族] Kazoku.
If you enjoy the track then feel free to share it and subscribe; new songs will be coming out shortly!"

Here’s a wonderful, new talent that needs to be heard! Going by the alias of [家族] Kazoku, this is a solo project driven by supreme shred and a high level of compositional ability. Stylistically, this would fall under the umbrella of modern Progressive Metal with an instrumental approach. That being the case, you could compare and contrast [家族] Kazoku with contemporaries such as Polyphia and CHON. However, the music here really speaks for itself as arguably one of the brightest introductions made in 2016 for the style.
The single “An Undying Illusion” recently saw the light of day and just oozes the talent and potential held within this solo project. Upon hearing it, we jumped at the opportunity to team up with the artist and bring the music directly to you.
[家族] Kazoku filmed a blazing playthrough for the track which can now be viewed just below. If you enjoy what he has accomplished here, show some love and prepare yourselves for what looks to be the absolutely brilliant musical future of [家族] Kazoku!

Glenn Hughes: new studio album and tour



Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the highly anticipated twelfth original GLENN HUGHES album “Resonate” - released on Friday 4th November 2016. The album dovetails Glenn’s UK and European tour with special guests “Living Colour” which kicks off in the UK on Tuesday 8th November (see tour dates listed below). Click here to read the official UK press release announcement -

A true vocal and musical icon of our times, in the past couple of years Glenn concentrated again on his solo career. Sold out crowds were the order of the day, while touring non-stop throughout 2015, with shows in South America, Europe, UK, Japan and Singapore. In addition, late in 2015, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame based in the USA, announced that Deep Purple including MKIII, are finally to be inducted after several previous nominations over the years. This was a culmination of a 40+ years career which saw Glenn leave his indelible mark in several musical endeavours and bands, including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, his collaborations with Gary Moore, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and most recently with Black Country Communion and California Breed.

2016 was his busiest year yet. With summer festivals and solo shows in the USA, UK and Europe, finally Glenn’s first solo album in over 8 years that will see the light of day! “Resonate” is truly a triumphant return to form for "The Voice of Rock"!

From album opener, "Heavy", to the very last chords of the closer, "Long Time Gone", it promises to be a contender for 'Album of the Year'. The new album features his live solo band members, Soren Andersen (guitars and co-producer), Pontus Engborg (drums) and newcomer to his band, Lachy Doley (keyboards), in addition to long-time friend and drummer, Chad Smith (of Red Hot Chili Peppers), who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers. It might well be the most heavy sounding of his solo albums, but as is his trademark, musical diversity shines through and as Glenn commented upon completion of the new recording, "this album is the first kind of a complete Glenn Hughes album".

No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes' calling card and the new album, “Resonate” will shine as a true Glenn Hughes landmark release. The new album will be available in two configurations: regular CD and Deluxe Edition including one bonus track and DVD. Vinyl release will be made available via the Frontiers’ label partners Soulfood Music. The Deluxe Edition includes the bonus track “Nothing’s The Same”, plus a bonus DVD disc featuring the “Making of” the album documentary – “Heavy” (song video), and “Long Time Gone” (song video).

Joe Bonamassa: The Three kings and their catalog mean the world to me! new blu ray pre order


"The Three kings and their catalog mean the world to me. Freddie, Albert and of course BB. Freddie was the Texas tornado coming in fast and furious. Albert a drummer turned southpaw slayer always had the groove and made it funky as well as bluesy. BB defined the genre in which he lived so successfully for over 60 years. Giants, humble, yet gentlemen off stage but give them an ES-355 or Flying V respectively and they became sonic assassins playing with such fire and virtue that it shook the very ground of anyone brave enough to stand beside. I hope my humble offering would’ve made them proud. My only regret is that Mr. King isn't alive to see this. He was as hip as a cat could be. He showed me how to load songs from a computer into an iPod. Remember those?!!! This one is for you B. I can never repay the debt of gratitude I owe you for your gift of knowledge, music and especially friendship.” -Joe Bonamassa

Jake Willson: String Bending Masterclass: Complete Box Set

String Bending Masterclass: Complete Box Set

String bending is an integral part of every guitarist's sound, and one of the main reasons why the instrument allows us to play such emotive lines. With this in mind it's incredibly important that you know not only how to bend correctly (and in tune) but that you take full advantage of the expressive capabilities of this technique. Using it to add more depth, articulation and 'soul' to your solos!

Bending lets us guitarists hit all the 'in-between' notes that a piano cannot reach, as well as slide smoothly from one pitch to another (including vibrato), allowing us to imitate other sounds and instruments ranging from slide guitar to saxophones and violins or even the human voice!

In this masterclass we want to help you develop a confident, accurate and expressive bending technique. Over these three volumes we're going to cover the fundamentals, how you can use bends all over the fretboard in conjunction with other techniques and how to creatively incorporate bends into a more advanced level of playing.

Volume One: Fundamentals.
Whether new to string bending or a seasoned pro, it's always wise to check your technique! Throughout this volume we'll be doing just that. Studying the mechanics, bend shapes and pitch accuracy. Starting with the exercises you will study one and two fret bends within the major scale, perfecting your technique and developing your ear. Once you have mastered the exercises, move onto the licks and work on getting the mechanics right first. Finally studying the longer solo will help you to put your bending techniques into a musical context.

Volume Two: Expanded Fretboard.
Ready to take your bending technique to the next stage? In this part of the masterclass we'll be moving you around the fretboard more as well as exploring how bends can be combined with other techniques. Our first major step is to start moving the bends around more. We want you to be able to grab any note and bend it accurately and the exercises are designed to get you practising just that. The licks cover a whole load of new bending ideas which will instantly grow your string bending arsenal. Then, studying the solo will allow you to try all of these concepts in a realistic musical context.

Volume Three: Expressive Execution.
In volume three we'll be incorporating bends in a more advanced level of modern rock/fusion playing. We'll also get you working intensely on pitch accuracy and using bends to imitate slide guitar. After studying viable bends, 'the ghost fretboard' and quarter tone bends, the exercises will get you focussing on pitch accuracy which is very important for advanced bending. The licks will once again cover a lot of concepts and studying them will be a wonderful area of inspiration for your playing. Finally explore the full solo which has a full range of bends of all strings. You can learn this note for note, or simply master some of the advanced licks throughout.

Each volume includes a main masterclass PDF including diagrams and images to guide you, exercises, licks and solos in both audio and video format, accurate TAB/notation and backing tracks to practise the techniques and build your own awesome bending solos!

Each volume is available individually (click the images below) however as this is a course we strongly recommend that you get the box set and work your way through from volume one to three. PLUS, if you pick up the box set edition you will also get 9 extra bonus licks to help further refine and develop your bending technique. These of course, come complete with video, audio, backings, and TAB/Notation.

If you want to master this beautiful technique and take your string bending to the next level, then this masterclass is your answer!

Download right now, or Premium Members hit the +MyTracks button and get instant streaming access! Premium members, to access the bonus licks please add the 'Vol.3 Expressive Execution' to your dashboard.

P.S - A huge thanks to JTC artist Jake Willson for sessioning on this release as JTC's very own 'Stig'!#

As always, your support means a lot to me. It’s entirely because of the support I got for The Human Affliction that I was able to make Spiritual Machines and devote the enormous amount of time needed to make and release an album like this. 
I can honestly say that this has been the most enjoyable and positive album making experience I’ve had so far and I feel like it’s reflected in the music. There’s just an energy to the whole album that’s different to my previous works which I think is really cool.

About The Album

Following on from his critically acclaimed albums Assimilate Regenerate (2011) and The Human Affliction (2015), Spiritual Machines is the new cyberpunk-inspired instrumental guitar album by Paul Wardingham.

Complete with the melodic choruses, mechanical metal riffs and hi-tech futuristic shredding that Paul has become known for, Spiritual Machines is perhaps his most accessible work to date.

“I really wanted to get back to a style that I was doing a few years before writing Assimilate Regenerate. More focused on melody and riffs than on lots of guitar solos. Spiritual Machines is more metal, very song orientated and has a kind of raw industrial quality to it”

“There’s an energy to this album that’s very different to my previous works”

3. My Sanctuary
4. Break The System
5. Ghosts Of A Concrete World
