During a recent tour stop in Vienna, Austria, Death Angel’s Rob Cavestany participated in an interview with GuitarMania.eu that focused on a striking new version of his custom signature axe.
In addition, guitar technician Florian Schluck took GuitarMania.eu through the gear Cavestany and fellow Death Angel guitarist Ted Aguilar use on the road.
And if that wasn’t enough, Cavestany and Aguilar also recently offered EMGtv several instrumental performances of tracks off the band’s 2013 album The Dream Calls for Blood. The latest to be released is the hard-charging “Left For Dead.”
Matt Brunson has been a busy musician since joining Louisiana sludge metal stalwarts Crowbar in 2009, and the upcoming year will be no different.
Not only is Crowbar about to start recording the band’s 10th studio album, there also figures to be a slew of tour dates on the horizon in 2014. But that’s nothing compared to Brunson’s first appearance with Crowbar, when he was asked by frontman Kirk Windstein to fill in at a show with a mere week to prepare.
Brunson went to work then in 2005, and he’s been at it as a full-time member of Crowbar after replacing guitarist Steve Gibb in 2009.
JacksonGuitars.com recently caught up with Brunson to see what the guitarist has been up to.
JacksonGuitars.com: With the fast transition from the road to the studio coming up, how will this writing process work for you?
Brunson: Yeah, the last show of this tour is Dec. 14 in New Orleans, and the following Monday, we head to the studio to start recording the next Crowbar record. This one is a little different. Sever the Wicked Hand was about five years removed from the previous album. So by the time we were ready to record that, a lot of the songs had already been written and were pretty much done. This time, the label wanted 12 songs, and so far we have eight written. The writing process does and will fly. Continue reading →
Periphery has music coming out on Jan. 28, 2014 in North America, but don’t call it a full-length album.
Don’t call it an EP, either.
According to the band, the upcoming Clear will clock in at 30 minutes, falling in between the EP/LP designation. In addition, each song will sound different, with each band member controlling their own track.
For a taste of the new tunes, check out the preview after the jump. In the meantime, pre-order Clear here. Continue reading →
