Singer David Glen Eisley and guitarist Craig Goldy (Resurrection Kings, ex-Dio), both formerly of GIUFFRIA, have joined forces again in EISLEY/GOLDY, a partnership which sees the two artists bring back the signature sound that launched their careers in the early ‘80s.

As David Glen Eisley stated around October 2014, after several years on hiatus after his 2001 solo effort, “My dear friend of many years, guitar virtuoso Craig Goldy made a surprise visit up to my house, knocked on the door and simply stated ‘Enough of this my friend…time for you to get up off your ass and come back to work!’ He was so adamant, I relented and agreed to join him on a small stage in the San Diego area. It all seemed to go well and the next thing I knew a year later, we were in Nottingham, England playing together again in front of a crowd. We had been discussing writing some material for a potential album during this past year. But where to take it, assuming we were actually to do one? That left a big question, but a simple answer. The BEST Rock & Roll label left on the planet that understood who we were and who we are today. That was Frontiers and our friends Serafino & Mario!! A deal was struck, and we both are happy to say “Eisley/Goldy” will be bringing you a new record in 2017. Funny how things happen in this crazy world of Rock & Roll!”

Of the first single to be released from the album, Goldy says “the song, “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter” is a song that I know is very close to Dave’s own heart…..because of a very special loved one, who is still in search mode for that “one and only”, yet still gets kicked around during that quest! For me….this song can indeed be about anyone who is searching for a special someone….or it can also be about the internal search we all feel at times while trying to uncover what special purpose or calling in life we are on this planet for….and that search, though originally generated from the heart, can often become as treacherous as a hunter in the wild!!!”

Eisley/Goldy are joined on the release by drummer Ron Wikso, whose resume includes The Storm, Foreigner, Cher, David Lee Roth, and more. Original Giuffria bassist Chuck Wright also plays on a few tracks on the album and original Giuffria drummer Alan Krigger is featured in “The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter” music video!

German Metal Pioneers Primal Fear To Release “Best Of Fear” Compilation On 11/10

One of the best metal bands out there, Primal Fear has a greatest hits album coming called “Best Of Fear,“ as the name implies, is a new best-of compilation from German heavy metal masters, Primal Fear. This double album culls together the best material from Primal Fear’s last 10 years of work (including the albums “New Religion,” “16.6 (Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead),” “Unbreakable,” “Delivering the Black,” & “Rulebreaker”), plus four brand new songs recorded specially for this release.

This comprehensive overview of Primal Fear’s body of work over the past ten years is aptly split into two records which showcases the magnificence (and constantly maturing) songwriting abilities of these heavy metal lifers. The first album encompasses the heavier and more straight-ahead material, while the second shows the more involved and epic side of the band’s songwriting.

So, whether you’re just discovering Primal Fear or you’re a long-time fan, this is a really good overview of their music over the past ten years and is not to be missed!

Brad Jurjens Featuring Jeff Scott Soto Release “Deranged”

Los Angeles based guitarist Brad Jurjens is releasing his first solo album today. It’s a heavy metal record featuring Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen, Journey, Sons of Apollo) on vocals, among others David Ellefson (Megadeth) and Ralph Ciavolino (Yngwie Malmsteen) on bass,  Aaron Stechauner (Rings of Saturn) and Brandon Pertzborn (Doyle, Black Flag) on drums.

The album’s kickoff party happened at the Ultimate Jam Night at the legendary Whisky a Go Go on Tuesday night, when Brad and his band opened for “Hollywood Loves Las Vegas“, a benefit show where all proceeds went to the Las Vegas trauma center, the place where most of the recent shooting victims were sent. It even made the local Los Angeles Fox 11 news, where you can see Brad and the singer of his band, Dee Snider’s (Twisted Sister) son Jesse Snider perform “Slip Away,” one of the songs from the new record. (Link https://youtu.be/asevT6e8pCE )

Says Brad: “This event was very special to me, not only because it was my record release party, but also because I played a sold-out show at an outside venue called Beauty Bar on Fremont Street in Las Vegas a week before the mass shooting happened. I played with my band Skumlove opening for Combichrist and Lords of Acid. The police and the FBI have determined that the shooter was staying at a hotel next to the venue and that he was “dry running” and practicing crowd shooting from his hotel window at that time. It’s hard to explain how sick I felt when I found that out, and my heart goes out to all of the victims and their loved ones“.

Weapons Of Anew Guitarist Freddy Ordine Talks About How The Band Formed

By Andrew Catania

I caught up with Freddy Ordine from Weapons of Anew while they made a tour stop in Orlando in support of Tesla.

How did you start playing the guitar?

I started playing when I was about probably five or six years old. My dad played acoustically. It was always around me.  My dad would teach me, Jimi Hendrix. I loved it.  We couldn’t afford an amp, and so I would plug into the mic input and put on my stereo and crank the crap out of it and if I could blow it up to get those tones.  About 12 or 13 when I really started taking it seriously I began to listen to Joe Satriani and learn from his music note for note. We didn’t have tablature or YouTube.  It was a work of passion like you have to love what you want and what you’re doing and break down parts and just learn how to play and play by ear.  I think I was 16 or 17 when I started axing.  When I was 16, my band Axiom got signed to a division of Sony Records.  It was a rapper type of label.  We were label mates with the Fat Boys and The Cover Girls.  My parents had to sign my first contract.

After that, I met my wife, took some time off, raised my kids.  Late 90’s came, and I got the urge to play again.  I formed the band HavocHate and did two records with them.  I stepped away for a couple of years to raise my kids.  I pursued my Master’s Degree from Berklee College too.

How did Weapons of Anew form? 

FO: Two years ago I met Chris, our drummer. He was playing in a local band, and he needed a fill-in guitar player.  He asked me hey can you come out and do some shows and I was like I don’t want too.  When I saw Chris play. He’s a monster. He’s full of energy.  He’s older than me but young when it comes to playing and writing.  I was like, let’s do it.  The three of us were writing for a little while, and we were looking for singers, and we couldn’t find a guy that that fit.   Ray West’s name kept coming up, and people were like, hey you have to talk to Ray West.  I’m like the Spread Eagle guy?  They wear makeup and stuff!  I’m not into that.  His name kept coming up, and they kept insisting I talk to Ray.  You’d get along with him.  So finally I get on the phone, and it was like an instant connection. He was so not what I expected. He loves music. I mean he’s so not what you see in the Spread Eagle videos.  He’s  not that guy at all. He’s a musician. He loves all kinds of music.

So when we finally got in a room together and the song kill shot came along in probably two hours. It was meant to be.

How are the ESP USA Guitars doing for you?

FO: Phenomenal!  Unbelievable.  I’ve been with ESP for about two years now,  They’re the best guitars I’ve played, and I’m delighted with them.  Bogner Amps too.  They’ve been great to me.

What was your first guitar?

FO: My Dad’s 67 Les Paul.  I don’t play it.  I keep it in storage.

What are your plans for 2018?

FO:  Tour Tour Tour!  Get out to see as many people as we can!

Gretchen Menn’s Abandon All Hope Is A Masterpiece

By Andrew Catania

There are many reasons why Gretchen Menn is number one on my list of female guitarists.  While Gretchen isn’t necessarily a shredder, Gretchen is disciplined in all areas of the guitar, including shred.  Her latest record, Abandon All Hope,  is not just another guitar instrumental album from a talented guitarist.  This visionary and cinematic project is based on Dante Alighieri’s epic 14th-century poem, Inferno.  Even with Gretchen’s experience with classical music, this was still a dwelling yet grueling study of classical orchestration to fully realize the album’s 15 pieces.

This is a brilliant album, genuinely instrumental music at its best. The compositions share both complexity and elegance.  For those of you who appreciate virtuoso guitar playing, both classic and pure rock, this is a must album for you to purchase.  This record is one of many reasons why Gretchen differentiates herself from the rest of the guitar players.  I have no problem saying Gretchen Menn is our modern day virtuoso, Bach, Mozart,  take your pic.  Gretchen Menn is phenomenal, and so is this record.  9/10 Rating.

Sons Of Apollo Knock It Out Of The Park With Psychotic Symphony

By Andrew Catania

When Mike Portnoy announced his latest project, I wasn’t sure what to expect musically.  Was it going to be Dream Theater sounding?  With Derek Sherinian tickling the white ivories, maybe so.

Adding Billy Sheehan on bass, Ron “Bumblefoot” Thai on guitar, and the fantastic Jeff Scott Soto on vocals, this record has to rock.  And it does!

Every musician stands out, and each instrument is dominant.

Psychotic Symphony was produced by the dynamic production duo of Portnoy and Sherinian, also affectionately known as “The Del Fuvio Brothers,” the nickname was given to them over 20 years ago during their time together in Dream Theater.

Coming Home,” the single released before the record, is a very catchy tune starting with Sherinian delivering the keyboards and features a lot of groove and attitude. The rest of the album is essentially the same attitude and groove. You have five of the best musicians in the business today on this record.

“Mike and I work at a relentless pace in the studio,” continues Sherinian. “The music is modern, but we have an old-school soul. What is unique about Sons Of Apollo is that we have true rock n’ roll swagger along with the virtuosity– a lethal combination!”

Psychotic Symphony is nine songs of musical excellence.  “This is a real band,” Portnoy declares. “This is going to pick up for me and Billy where The Winery Dogs left off, regarding this being the next logical full-time thing for us. I’m not saying The Winery Dogs have broken up because we haven’t, we’re just on a break.  Sons of Apollo is going to be a full-time band, and we plan on touring all over the world throughout 2018 and, honestly, it is the priority for all five of us.”

This record is a must-have for Bumblefoot, Sherinian, Soto, and Portnoy fans.  You won’t be disappointed.  8.5/10 Rating

Guitarist Gheeyeh And Mind Of Fury Are Ready To Rock

Gheeyeh was born in Santiago, Chile. Soon he would show interest in music, not long after that, he would be composing his music. His love for rock was influenced by bands like Europe, Bon Jovi, Van Halen and many other groups from the 80’s.   His interest in metal music was caused by bands like Metallica and Pantera. But, his real inspiration came from Yngwie Malmsteen, which drove him to write his songs.

By 1999 he recorded his first demo with Paulo Domic, which acted out as the singer/bass player. Later on, Gheeyeh became part of a Chilean metal band “Witchblade.”  In 2001 he toured with that band and opened for a famous Brazilian band Angra. then in 2002, he formed his band Human Factor with some members of Witchblade. In 2004 Human Factor released the album Unleashed and they toured all over Chile and opened for bands like Mago de Oz, Seven Angels, Criminal and After Forever.  This album was released worldwide by a Belgium label Mausoleum Records and in Japan by Soundholic Records.

In 2006 Human Factor released the album Behind The Dark via Soundholic Records. The band ended up with touring Chile and opening for bands like Helloween, Gamma Ray, and Angra.  On September 2008 the band split up, and Gheeyeh felt it was the perfect moment to begin a solo career.

In October of 2008, he started writing new songs and got in touch with Nicolas Quinteros, which acted as co-producer and sound engineer, together they started to work with the new material of Gheeyeh. Gheeyeh wrote all songs, the album was musically complete on December 2008, meaning that drums, keys arrangements, bass, rhythm guitars, solos and vocal melodies were done!. By January 2009 the recordings started at Nicolas Quinteros studios, and by February all the instruments were already recorded. So he contacted Paulo and proposed to him to be the singer of this project. Paulo wrote the lyrics, except for Fighting For Your Love and on April 2009 the vocal recordings started. The album was finished in May 2009 and released later on that same year with the title Turn The Page.

Gheeyah moved to the United States and in 2013, he meets Yngwie Malmsteen keyboardist/vocalist  Nick Z. Marino.  After the recording of the live DVD “Yngwie Malmsteen Spellbound Live In Orlando” and gave him a CD with material from Turn the Page and Metal Blast.   After Yngwie Malmsteen’s tour was over Nick Z. Marino called Gheeyeh asking him to talk about being part of NZM (Nick’s band). Gheeyeh met Nick in Hollywood, Florida and started to work on material for the upcoming NZM album. The first song Gheeyeh and Nick wrote together was I’m In Your Blood.   Gheeyah worked hard and wrote with Nick the title track of the album Eternal Fire and the single War, Hold Me Tight,  Follow Me and “I’m In Your Blood” were also co-written by Gheeyeh.

The album was recorded at Nick Z. Marino studio and was entirely done by the end of 2013. Produced by Nick Z. Marino and Gheeyeh Eternal Fire were released early 2014. GHEEYEH recorded guitars, bass and backing vocals, Nick Z. Marino vocals, keyboards, Patrick Johansson, did the drums and the album was mixed and mastered by Keith Rose.

Gheeyeh left NZM to form his own band Mind of Fury with Henry Moreno and Mike Frankenbush.  They released there first CD in 2016.




Super Shredder Doug Aldrich Discusses The New Revolution Saints Record And Future Burning Rain Plans

By Andrew Catania

From the days of blasting Lion to the present of Revolution SaintsDoug Aldrich has been a mainstay in my life for over 28 years with his monster playing, precise technique and killer tone.  I’ve watched Doug’s career progress playing with the legendary Ronnie James Dio, Whitesnake and his other project, Burning Rain.

Doug has formed Revolution Saints with two other highly talented musicians Deen Castronova and Jack Blades.  I recently spoke to him to discuss there latest album, LIght in the Dark.

How were Revolution Saints created? Was it the brainchild of Frontiers?

Yes. It was the brainchild of Frontiers,  they had heard Deen sing before, and they wanted to feature him singing on a record with songs written by Alessandro Delvecchio and a few others It was leaning in the Journey direction. But then Deen asked me to play on it.  He asked Jack Blades to play on it.  When the record company heard it, we both agreed let’s make this a band. And then the producer said OK I want you to change your guitars and you know make them as you did in Whitesnake. I said I’ll do my best to do that and that we ended up with Revolution Saints first record. 

Deen sounds great!  I call him the second coming of Steve Perry. 

DA: You can hear in Deen’s voice that he’s happy and doing great. Did you know Deen can play the guitar too?

I didn’t! 

DA: It was pretty funny, he sent me a tape of him jamming. He said listen maybe there are some ideas in here. Something you could use for the record.  He was going to be involved in writing regarding arranging and lyrics,  melodies and stuff, but I didn’t expect him to pick up a guitar. But he sent me a tape of him jamming for like 30 minutes, and I found a couple of things in there that we used for the record and one of the main ones was the inspiration for the song Freedom.

I have a problem with these supergroups being formed and they never tour.  They’ll release a record and no tour plans.  Is RS going to have touring plans? 

DA: That’s the problem with Revolution Saints is that initially when we did the first record we got some great offers to tour, and we just couldn’t get it together. My show is Vegas was just getting going, and it was getting more popular. The producer would give me a hard time.   He said, Of course, you can go back to Whitesnake, but he didn’t want me taking off doing other things.

We weren’t able to tour because of our schedules. Journey was always touring.  We’re going to do this. We need to commit to each other that we’re going to try to do a tour here and there. Even if its a couple of weeks here and there. The fans deserve it. I know we could do a great show. We did break our cherry we went to did that Frontiers Fest and it wasn’t the best performance of the day. I would say, but it was good. And through the first show between the three of us, I was only having a couple of rehearsals ahead of us. So I know we could be a great live feature if we take the time. So that’s what we’re looking at right now. Hopefully, we’ll get some good offers.

How long did it take to record the second album? 

DA: We started banging around ideas for it in January, February because we wanted to write ourselves on it this time. I wasn’t sure how that was going to go because we did one time getting the room together and we were all in Las Vegas one day, and we decided hey let’s have a jam meal. So we went to a rehearsal place, and we just jammed. We didn’t play any of the songs on the record. We just went off, and we’re jamming like Hendrix riffs and all that stuff.  I didn’t know what we were going to come up with, but we started to pass on some ideas, and it’s a little different, but it’s still got the same flavor.  It took about three weeks to record.

We were arranging the ideas that we had we all showed up to Italy together, and we spent I spent two and half weeks and I think Deen was there for three and a half weeks and he did vocals after I left and I did guitar solos on the road because when I was out with the Daisies.

How did the writing process take place? 

DA: I think the beginning it’s just Alessandro and me and knowing that Deen was going to get in on the songs and arranging the lyrics and melodies.  Jack contributed his regular excellent ideas as Jack’s also a producer just like Allesandro is.

You’ve been playing Gibson Les Pauls for a while.  Are you endorsed by them? 

Anyone for guitars currently does not endorse me.  I like to play what I want.  Back in 2014, Gibson USA contacted me about doing a signature series, and I was like well everyone already owns a gold top.

I had bought on eBay a 57 reissue blacktop that was woodgrain and had a  black finish. I said to Gibson USA,  why don’t we do guitar called The Black Hornet.   It had Amber Wood and Amber knobs.  It was mostly black.   I said why don’t we do this and they said Great. So they did a prototype, and we had a couple of little tricks in there, and the neck was getting right, and the frets were getting right, and I wanted to do one more prototype, and they had it built, and I saw a picture of it.

And then all of a sudden the Artist Rep guy and the builder were let go from Gibson  My project went away, and I never knew what happened to the guitar.  I reached out to Gibson and asked where it was.  They said they destroy stuff like that.  I started thinking; there’s no way a guitar that’s finished is going to be destroyed.   So right now I’m not endorsed by Gibson.  They’re going through many changes now.  I have been working with ESP, and they asked me if I need anything for a tour, and I had stopped by the factory, and I like this Ron Wood signature model that they put out. It’s a killer kind of a tuxedo Telecaster.

With a humbucker in the neck. And I love that, and they said listen, what can we do to get you to play one of our guitars.  I said let’s stick another humbucker in a Telecaster. So they made it custom to my specs as far as the neck and the frets and the pickups.  It’s screaming.   I just got it. It’s a distressed gold Telecaster with a black pickguard which I like, and it’s it sounds fantastic.

What are your plans for 2018? 

The Daisies are on hiatus right now.  Hopefully touring in support of the new Revolution Saints album.  I’m in another band with Keith St. John called Burning Rain.  We’re going to get together and record an album and do a tour.
