GUS G Lands Guitar World Cover Feature With Chris Broderick; Exclusively Debuts New All-Instrumental Shred Track

July 17th, 2015
by EvilG
gus_g_live_kb_malmoe_2015_9On July 24th, the iconic guitar sensation, GUS G (Ozzy Osbourne), returns with his most widely heralded solo album, Brand New Revolution. The new offering will be released through Dismanic / eOne in North America includes such highly renowned guests vocalists as Jeff Scott Soto, Elize Ryd (Amaranthe), Mats Levén and Jacob Bunton (Adler, Lynam), while Jo Nunez played drums and Marty O’ Brien (Lita Ford) played bass. Jay Ruston (Stone Sour, Anthrax, Steel Panther) engineered the sessions and the legendary Mike Fraser (Metallica, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Van Halen) handled mixing duties. The effort was also mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Faith No More, Yes).
GUS G also recently once again partnered up with renowned director, Patric Ullaeus on two new videos. One is for the title track and one for the song, “What Lies Below.” Stay tuned to https://www.facebook.com/officialgusg for all updates, video debuts and all pertinent information.
GUS G is Guitar World’s current cover feature, alongside Chris Broderick (ex-Megadeth). You can view this cover image and purchase the issue directly at the link below. In a very special exclusive arrangement with Guitar World Magazine, GUS G will offer up a full-length version of his new album in news-stand copies of this cover feature issue, but it’s limited to 10K only. Be sure to go out to your local main magazine retailer and buy it right away, as supplies are limited in select locations.
The album’s ripping, all-instrumental lead-off track, “The Quest,” can also now be streamed exclusively at the link below.
GUS G states: “I must say that I’m very excited about partnering up with Guitar World to do this special release for my new album. In a current situation where record stores are almost obsolete, CD shelf space is becoming smaller and smaller in mega retailers and the CD format is becoming a thing of the past, I felt why not offer the fans something special? Why not give them a limited version of this album together with Guitar World magazine? Obviously, it’s a guitar player’s record and I’m sure Guitar World’s readers will appreciate this. I can’t think of a better celebration for the release of Brand New Revolution!
“Let’s face it, getting to be on the cover go Guitar World magazine is every guitar player’s dream. I’m fortunate enough to grace GW cover for the 2nd time (first time w/ Ozzy back in 2010) together with one of the best Metal guitarists of our time, Chris Broderick. It’s such a big honor. We had a great time doing the photo shoot w/ Chris and also hanging and jamming. He’s a monstrous player & I’m glad to see him forging his own path with his new band, Act Of Defiance.
“The album’s only instrumental track, ‘The Quest,’ is a very strong track and creates an impact. You hear lots of sides of my playing, not only the technical leads and heavy riffing, but melodies and even acoustic. Lots of stuff jam-packed into this song, but somehow it all comes together nicely.
“Touring wise, I’ll be spending most of the Fall in Europe touring with my solo band, as special guest of Kamelot, but I am also planning to do an extensive clinic tour right after. I will be joining Ozzy for a one off US show on Halloween at Voodoo festival in New Orleans and I hope I can do some US solo dates around the end of the year. Hope to see you all soon.”

Thanks to GerMusica for the promo pictuers

Interview_royal_quest_Yannis Androulakakis _3_2015

Yannis Androulakakis is a Greek guitarist and composer who has worked with metal, music for theater/musicals, and film soundtracks. In 1998 he and bass player Dennis Bekatoros formed the metal act Royal Quest and the work on a concept album began the year after. A lots of twists and turns ended up in Androulakakis making the album on his own, and it took him several years to finish off the album, but in 2014 the opus was finally ready to be unleashed. THE TALE OF MAN is the name of the album, and it’s a very ambitious work Androulakakis has unveiled to the masses. The album contains four different characters that bring the tale forward, and Androulakakis plays all the instruments on his own. In the interview Androulakakis speaks about the work he put into the album, work that began long before the legendary metal opera Avantasia was born, the past present and future of his career, and what he thinks of the Greek metal scene. Be sure to check out THE TALE OF MAN if you’re into metal operas like Avantasia, Genius etc.

Hellfest Festival 2015

@ Clisson, France

Review by Anna Dumpe and Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

Break out the balloons – it’s birthday time! No, not just mine (although thank you very much), but Hellfest’s big 1-0, the crossing point into double figures, the decade marker.  It’s practically an institution now, not just in France, not just in Europe but across the world with folks coming from every which place to rock n revel. Hellfest is just about the best damn festival out there, so you KNOW this is going to be special.

IRON MAIDEN – ROBINSONS CELEBRATE 10 MILLION PINTS OF TROOPER WITH A NEW LIMITED EDITION BREW

IRON MAIDEN - ROBINSONS CELEBRATE 10 MILLION PINTS OF TROOPER WITH A NEW LIMITED EDITION BREW

IRON MAIDEN – ROBINSONS CELEBRATE 10 MILLION PINTS OF TROOPER WITH A NEW LIMITED EDITION BREW

In celebration of Trooper Premium British Beer smashing through the 10 million pint barrier in just over 2 years, a special limited edition bottled brew, Trooper 666, will be made available to Trooper and Iron Maiden fans in many countries around the world from the 1st October 2015.

At the request of fans, and following the huge success of Trooper, Robinsons will make an even stronger ABV limited edition of the original brew. Again created by Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson in collaboration with Robinsons Brewery of Cheshire, this supercharged 6.6% version of the 4.7% bottled version will be available this autumn for a limited period only.

Beer aficionado Dickinson explained, “Our fans have been asking for a stronger brew and it seemed only right to do this at 6.6% ABV!  Despite the links with our song “The Number of The Beast”, the name Trooper 666 has actually come about as a result of some detailed research by historian Terry Brighton, who has shown that there were in fact 666 soldiers that rode in The Charge of the Light Brigade during the Battle of Balaclava in 1854, and not just the 600 of Tennyson’s famous poem.”

Brighton, author of Hell Riders: The Truth About The Charge Of The Light Brigade asserts, “A nominal roll was made at the time listing the cavalrymen present at Balaclava – I then used other contemporary records, of those killed and wounded, taken prisoner, assigned to other duties and so on, to prove who did and did not charge, and amazingly it added up to 666! Remarkably one of the extras was the hungover Regimental butcher, who charged wearing his butcher’s overall in place of his uniform, and wielding a butcher’s axe instead of a sabre.”

“Trooper 666 is the same award-winning Trooper recipe but brewed to a higher gravity,” explains Trooper Brand Manager John Robinson.  “The result is another wonderfully authentic beer that is packed with malt but slightly sweeter than the original. It has a dry finish and is remarkably moreish.”

AVANTASIA IS BACK; NEW ALBUM AND WORLD TOUR!

July 15th, 2015
by EvilG
Avantasia

Avantasia

The original is back! EDGUY frontman Tobias Sammet has returned to the studio to work on the new chapter ofAVANTASIA. The sequel to the successful 2013

album The Mystery Of Time, which charted in 16 countries in Europe, Asia and America, including #2 in Germany, will be called Ghostlights and is scheduled to be released in early 2016. An EP/single is also planned to be released this autumn and in March 2016 a giant all-star ensemble will set off on the GHOSTLIGHTS WORLD TOUR.

AVANTASIA’s mastermind Tobias Sammet commented about the album:

 

“In the past months I’ve spent a lot of time in the studio, an odd recluse in the basement, secretly working obsessively on something that reads and feels and sounds like a new – very strong – chapter in the story of AVANTASIA. I must sayAVANTASIA is a fantastic outlet for creativity, and it’s truly inspiring to create a piece of music for so many great vocalists and instrumentalists.

 

The new material is very bombastic and dynamic, and even though it’s extremely diverse, every minute of it sounds likeAVANTASIA. I’m really proud of what we’re creating right now. And as if that wasn’t enough: I’m anxiously looking forward to hitting the road again. I didn’t necessarily expect this to happen as in the past it has always been difficult to align the individual schedules of the guest stars, but things have worked out, and we’re ready to make it happen one more time! We’ll put on a big show, we’re gonna play over three hours, and we’ll take the fans to a magical world all its own – to AVANTASIA. The live setlist is going to embrace the entire history of AVANTASIA, from The Metal Opera to Ghostlights and of course everything in between!”

The world tour will kick off in Berlin on March 4th, 2016.
