  • Our astonishing beautiful guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "BREAKING ALL ILLUSIONS" by the legendary guitarist Mr. JOHN PETRUCCI. "Breaking All Illusions" is the eighth and longest track on Dream Theater's eleventh album, A Dramatic Turn of Events released in 2011 - a spiralling progressive rock odyssey, with long instrumental passages.This is the first song John Myung has written the lyrics for in 12 years, his last contribution before this having been Fatal Tragedy, on Scenes from a Memory. Although John Petrucci and former drummer Mike Portnoy have always rewritten John Myung's lyrics to better fit the songs, this is the first time that Myung's co-writer has been credited in the liner notes. An interview John cited that "It starts out kind of bluesy, then it's kind of jazzy, and it builds and builds. I got a chance to use so many aspects of guitar playing: phrasing and melodic elements, blues, jazz, shred. It was very satisfying to record". The guitar solo is the best one I've heard from Petrucci's solos, it has so much feeling in it! You can almost hear Petrucci speak through his guitar, it is simply fantastic, the feeling in it is just amazing. Petrucci is respected for his variety of guitar styles and skills. One of the most notable of these is his high-speed alternate picking which, as he himself claims, requires a "strong sense of synchronization between the two [playing] hands." John is notable for frequent use of the seven-string electric guitar, which he says he uses as a writing tool, taking advantage of the extended range for heavier riffing and to play extended range runs as part of a solo. Moreover, Petrucci often combines his metal shredding technique with a slower, emotive soloing style. 🎸❤

  • Ahoi! Nadine von @krachfink hat sich ein wenig mit uns über unser Debütalbum "WELTUNTER" unterhalten und auf krachfink.de gibt's nun das große Interview dazu zu lesen. [LINK IN BIO] Ziehts Euch rein! 🐼 Das wir bei unseren Promoshoots zu unserem Album, irgendwann splitternackt im Garten standen, uns angeschaut haben, lachend zusammengebrochen sind und uns gefragt haben, was nun schon wieder passiert ist, steht da nicht drin. Dies aber nur mal so als kleine zusätzliche Anekdote am Rande. 😂 Schönen Sonntag Euch noch. 🌍⬇️ | MASSENVERPFLICHTUNG!

  • Good morning my friends. I first had a complete other posting in mind for today but after I heard yesterday evening that @seanreinert - former drummer of Death and Cynic - died with only 48 years I just had to honor him today.
•
Sean was one of the drummers I was always looking up to. His speed combined with his incredible technique and his musicality was something special and new when the Death classic „Human“ came out in 1991.
•
I remember that I was sitting with a couple of friend in front of the tv and we watched the videoclip for „Lack of comprehension“ from the human album. There were several camera settings where you could see either his unbelievable speed on the double bass drums or his crazy patterns on both hi-hat and ride cymbals.
•
After he left Death he went back to his main band Cynic who were playing very technical and complex prog-death metal. Luckily I had the chance to see Cynic live in 1994 at Dynamo Festival. I remember that they had a special drum setup there which means the drum was placed sideways so that you were able to watch what Sean Reinert was doing with his feet and hands. Really an unforgettable experience and to me one of the best drum performances I’ve seen live.
•
What a terrible loss for the music and especially for the drumming world. It seems 2020 is not the year for drummers 😔😔😔 - r.i.p. Sean and thank you for your incredible talent and the music 😢🥁.

PS: unfortunately I do not own  these two masterpieces on vinyl so I had to post a very rare pic of my CDs
