YNGWIE MALMSTEEN RETURNS WITH KILLER NEW ‘RELENTLESS’ ALBUM

YNGWIE MALMSTEEN RETURNS WITH KILLER NEW ‘RELENTLESS’ ALBUM, RECENTLY SELECTED AS ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE’S “TOP TEN GREATEST ELECTRIC GUITAR PLAYERS OF ALL TIME

“Shred guitar” and “neo classical metal” are two phrases that have been commonplace in the world of heavy metal for decades by this point, but both can be attributed to the unmistakable work by Yngwie Malmsteen.

Ever since the early 1980’s, Yngwie has been pushing the limits of guitar, and influencing countless other players in the process.
And he continues to impress to this day, as evidenced by his forthcoming album, ‘Relentless,’ the highly anticipated follow-up to 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Perpetual Flame’ (Yngwie’s first album for Rising Force Records).

The album is the second to feature ex-Judas Priest and ex-Iced Earth singer Tim “Ripper” Owens, and features over 60 minutes of incredibly complex, kick ass arrangements.

“This title truly is the right one for this album, explains Yngwie. “I mean, after all these years, some kind of force is driving me to create something that totally surpasses everything I’ve done before. I tried to capture the raw energy of a live performance, yet push myself to the most demanding level of playing and composing to harness that elusive magic that can’t just be switched on. All the way out, caution to the wind, but disciplined performances was what I went for. Maybe I did it too, check it out!”
Confirmed song titles for ‘Relentless’ include “Relentless,” “Look At You Now,” “Shot Across the Bow,” “Adagio B Minor Variation,” “Caged Animal,” “Critical Mass,” “Into Valhalla,” “Enemy Within,” and “Caprici Di Inferno.”

Bursting onto the scene with such classic releases as 1984’s ‘Rising Force,’ 1985’s ‘Marching Out,’ and 1986’s ‘Trilogy,’ Yngwie instantly made a name for himself, by recreating the spirit of celebrated composer/musician Niccolò Paganini, but within the realm of heavy metal guitar.
Soon, countless other guitarists were copying Yngwie’s style…but there is simply only one Yngwie. Yngwie’s career continued to thrive throughout the world, including such additional triumphs as his totally classical work for orchestra and solo electric guitar, ‘Concerto Suite,’ which proved once and for all that his classical credentials were genuine.
Yngwie continues to receive accolades worldwide, such as recently being selected as one Time Magazine’s “Top Ten Greatest Electric Guitar Players” (amongst the stellar company of Les Paul, Jimmy Page, and Jimi Hendrix).

A respected musician among both his peers and his fans, Yngwie continues to play and compose at a level of mastery that many career musicians only dream of. ‘Relentless’ is a must-have, which will appeal to all Yngwie fans and rock music fans alike. Prepare yourself for a ‘Relentless’ classical metal attack!

Joe Lynn Turner: solo artist, Brazen Abbot, ex- Rainbow, ex- Deep Purple, etc…

October 15th, 2007

JOE LYNN TURNER

Joe Lynn Turner’s recording career, spanning three full decades, is too impressive to be described in just a few sentences. He will, however, forever be first and foremost recognized as the man responsible for leading the legendary hard rock band Rainbow to it’s greatest commercial heights. Taking over the reigns from Graham Bonnet, who had only endured one album in the giant shoes left by Ronnie James Dio, Joe recorded three classic albums, DIFFICULT TO CURE in 1981, STRAIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES in 1982 and BENT OUT OF SHAPE in 1983. Before reuniting with Mr. Blackmore once again, this time at the helm of Deep Purple to record the SLAVES AND MASTERS album in 1989, Joe helped Yngwie Malmsteen craft his arguably best work to date, the ODYSSEY in 1988.Through the years Joe Lynn Turner has also released numerous well received solo albums and worked with many great bands such as Mother’s Army. In the past decade he has, among other things, worked with Nikolo Kotzev on five albums, Brazen Abbot’s EYE OF STORM in 1996, BAD RELIGION in 1997, GUILTY AS SIN in 2003 and MY RESURRECTION in 2005 as well as Nikolo Kotzev’s double album NOSTRADAMUS in 2001. He’s also released and toured several albums with fellow Deep Purple alumni Glenn Hughes. We hope that you enjoy this look into Joe’s career, past, present and future!

Yngwie Malmsteen

January 18th, 2007

YNGWIE MALMSTEEN

Legendary Swedish guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen doesn’t need much of an introducion here. He is arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the ’80s and he has been an important influence and source of inspiration for many of today’s top players and bands. So far Yngwie has released thirteen studio albums and now he has been on tour almost 16 months supporting his latest release "Unleash the Fury".  Last December Yngwie and his band did a brief tour of Finland, which was the very last leg of this endless spectacle. The day before the Helsinki show he kindly agreed to do this press conference for the Finnish press. In contrast to his difficult personal reputation we were treated to  this long, fun and hilarious conversation. Here are the results, ENJOY !!!

Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist)

September 4th, 2005

Mark Boals (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen vocalist)

Interviewed By EvilG

Back in 1998 when I learned that Mark Boals would be returning to Yngwie’s “Rising Force” band for the CD Alchemy, I was very excited. He had after all sang on what is perhaps the best Malmsteen CD, Trilogy! So out came Alchemy and to no surprise – I loved it…the best Yngwie CD to come along since Trilogy. Mark did the Alchemy tour and then began work on his own solo album. Partway through the recording, he was called in to do vocals on the new Yngwie CD, War To End All Wars. A slightly less exciting CD than Alchemy, but nonetheless godly (despite the strange sounding production)!! Right before the new tour was to begin I read a press release about Mark no longer being in the band…WTF?? Very shortly after this I was contacted by Mark with news of his new solo CD Ring of Fire. I quickly jumped on the chance to pick his brain about what happened and to get more information on his solo album. Below is the result of our Q-n-A session.
