Greek guitar phenomenon Gus G. will embark on the “Operation Domination” co-headliner U.S. tour with renowned shredder Angel Vivaldi. A full breakdown of dates and venues is available below.
Gus G. states: "I'm very excited to return to the U.S. this fall to finally hit more markets and play for the fans that were left out on my recent Spring mini-tour. Teaming up with a talented player like Angel Vivaldi seemed like a great opportunity.
"We're both stoked to bring the 'Operation Domination’ tour to the American audiences and we will be performing our own individual sets, but also collaborating on stage together as well. We will have a great band with us that features James Paul Luna (Holy Grail) on vocals, Alex Bent (ex-Battlecross, Testament) on drums and Jake Skylyr on bass.
“The set list will once again be a mixed bag including songs from my solo works, Firewind, Ozzy material but some surprises as well. These shows are not to be missed. See you soon." More...

Progressive guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi is fresh off of his successful "Touring You Apart" tour and already planning his touring schedule for spring 2016. In the meantime, Vivaldi has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on his cover of "Crystal Planet" (featuring As Blood Runs Black's Dan Sugarman), originally performed by guitar legend Joe Satriani.
Angel Vivaldi is pleased to unleash this re-imagined track along with its accompanying music video today. Check it out below. Vivaldi's modern progressive take on Satriani's guitar rock anthem sees the song in a much heavier light.
"The original has practically no rhythm guitar in it at all. A lot of those progressions were fantastic but were often overlooked by, of course, Joe's stellar playing. My goal was to make the song groovier and exaggerate the leads with different dynamics/harmonies," he says. "I've always admired Joe's ability to say a lot with the simplest phrasing. I wanted to honor these melodies with more dramatic, sometimes even aggressive variations to compliment the feel of the rhythm guitars." More...

The clip was directed by Jesse Conti at Chariot Media Group and can be seen below. The band comments on the clip:
"A man awakes in an unfamiliar place, disoriented & exhausted. He ventures out into the unknown with bare essentials, along with a glass element and mysterious spinal implant. With no end in sight, he questions his sanity, his surroundings and his ability to press on. He soon comes to the realize that he may be a long way from home..."

Turns out they are also the perfect medium for experiencing the best metal has to offer, and many fans online have converted their favorite tunes into 8-bit format. There are probably hundreds or even thousands of these online, and today we'll share two interesting ones worth hearing.
Fist up is a recreation of Augury's "Brimstone Landscapes" from "Fragmentary Evidence" (reviewed here), a progressive/technical death metal album that is now becoming long, looong overdue for a follow-up release. While for some reason the drums seem to have been dropped from the 8 bit version, this is still a pretty faithful reproduction of the original in old school video game form.
For comparison, here's the original track: More...

Each week in Unearthing the Metal Underground, we take a look at three quality underground artists that haven’t gotten the exposure they deserve. This week I am exploring the shred scene in the tri-state area.
Now I wouldn't exactly call it much of a scene here, but there are quite a few talented guitarists in New Jersey and New York. From people posting their own solos/songs on youtube out of a bedroom studio to veteran musicians who book at high class studios to record their album. Today I'll be discussing three acts from across the spectrum. More...
