Filmed over the four days of NAMM in January 2013, M.E. performed at the SONIC CORE GMBH exhibit to demo their SCOPE EXITE audio interface. He was also utilizing Steinberg’s CUBASE, which is playing back his rhythm tracks and also serving as his guitar processor and amplifier simulator. Known as the VST AMP RACK, all of the guitar sounds except for the Wah are being generated by this Cubase VST plugin. When Cubase V7 was released a month earlier, Steinberg had included a set of custom VST Amp Rack presets that Mark had designed. He utilized those presets here.

For those who haven?t followed this US band, you might be surprised to know that they formed way back in 1985. Their first release in 1987 was a 5-song EP released on their own label. However, the band broke up in 1988. As time passed the band developed a cult-like status and in 2000, the band members took note and decided to give it another go. They then recorded a 4-song demo called ?Overlorde 2000?. Using that demo, the band successfully marketed themselves and achieved many glowing reviews. It took them nearly 4 years, but the end result, their signing to Sonic Age and the release of RETURN OF THE SNOW GIANT, was worth the wait.
In this interview I got to speak to Mark about the band’s return, the recording of the new CD, playing live, flying V’s, WWII, etc etc… Enjoy!
