If you liked Slaves, Too Close to Touch will be inside your music player.
American band that was born as many pure bands, two friends (guitar and drums) get together to play from time to time in the basement, little by little they add more members and end up doing something big… I love it!
Now that is Easter time, we’d like to introduce you to the Christian rock-metal band, Red.
Band that has had many movements in the formation, where since the third album, the twin brothers Anthony and Randy Armstrong, guitarist and bassist respectively, together with the vocalist Michael Barnes, have managed to achieve the desired stability. However, all these in and outs have been noticed when writing music. For me, the first 3 albums are the best of the band, where Innocence & Instinct is a true MASTERPIECE.
Year 2000 … I remember the first time I listened or rather, I saw on the Mtv (when they were still playing real music videos) P!nk on his single debut There you go, with her short pink hair and her rocker voice on an R&B base, was a strange combination, but perfect.
Over time, the style has changed, but that powerful voice remains unchanged, even live is heard even more strongly.
So what a better artist and song to do a metal-remix.
Slaves … the first thing that caught my attention in this band was the voice.
I know, you’re thinking “it should be the first thing“, but as an amateur guitarist, there’s nothing more attractive than a good riff. The funny thing about Jonny Craig tone is that he remembers more a pop singer than metal singer, which I love that mix.
Hello metalheads! After these exciting first days as a blogger, let’s get the musical recommendation for the weekend. If you liked Bring me the Horizon, Asking Alexandria won’t leave you indifferent.
Now that no one is watching us, let me tell you a secret, I have never liked this band, the screaming style did not convince me very much. But at the end of 2017, their last self titled album, became part of my Hall of Fame as a MASTERPIECE. The production of this work is insane! Thanks to his record label, we can enjoy it in streaming onYouTube.
… and last but not least, we come to the last recommendation of this grand opening, Wearing Scars.
How did you meet this band? In the guitar world, as in everyday life, sometimes you get stuck. Searching the internet I came across Andy James and his tutorial videos, where thanks to them I got the push to get out of the rut. From the first second I listened to him I thought: “How is it possible that someone with that speed, definition and feeling playing, is not in a super band?”
Penultimate recommendation of this blog presentation, Falling in Reverse. American band formed at the end of 2008.
The beginnings of Falling in Reverse, didn’t convince me too much, but on the third album… things changed, that voice radiated personality on all sides. Then came his fourth album, Coming Home, another MASTERPIECE had been born for me.
Our second recommendation is based on the origins. A Californian band whose members, like my first band, had known each other since high school. In 1999, at just 18 years of age, Avenged Sevenfold (A7X) was born.
The beginnings of the band, especially in the first two albums, the voice was more focused on the screaming style. It was not until the fourth homonymous album, when they began to use melodic voices.
I have great admiration for this band, since the drummer passed away (friend and founder), they continued writting music without losing their identity.
The first time I tried to record something fairly serious, was in November 2014. I got some active monitors near field, an audio interface, I bought the Logic Pro X to record through the iMac, I bought a studio desk to look more pro, geeks, pedal effects, amps, guitars … All that remained was to sit down and start creating. And indeed … As you can imagine, the only thing that happened was … NOTHING.
Oh yeah!But after all this time and with great enthusiasm I proudly present my first video and remix.
The truth is that these last three months (and many more to come), have been a constant learning process: recording, mixing, masterimg, lighting, editing, blogging … Getting here has been a very fun experience.
Before I started this great journey, I wondered why I should get into this. The most important reason and the purpose of all this … IS FOR ME. After so much time in the wonderful world of music, what better excuse than this to continue growing and connected with to my “musical self”.
So without further ado, here is the remix of a classic song: The Final Countdown of Europe.
