Addicted to bad movies since 2008
Time for me to make my first announcement of the day!
Joining the likes of Steve Vai and Bumblefoot, another guitar virtuoso is coming. Hailing from Brazil, Kiko Loureiro of the Brazilian power metal band Angra is hitting the RBN. Three of his songs will be arriving, including fan-favorite "Headstrong", as well as two songs from his new album Sounds of Innocence, "Conflicted" and "El Guajiro".
I'm just hoping this means TAG gets CSS.
And yay for Show Me a Sign!
DLC on DLCQuickPlay.com. Gamertag is the same as my Forum name. Hit me up if you wanna play!
Well, here's hoping those tracks do come to fruition, I think we all know how abruptly nasty things can get. (Said as I pine over our folder of unreleasable tracks....)
Anywho. Four bits of stuff, some good, some bad, some new, some old.
First: New and nothing to show. I've rebuilt the website! ...And it's not done! But my stock and trade is currently web programming, and I've long needed to redesign the thing into something simpler and more modern. So I'm in the midst of doing that, using a very handy jQuery plugin that'll end up with a much more interesting site than the fairly boring one-column thing I've got going now.
Second: New and something to show. And something you might actually care about. On top of our partnerships with Redfield Records, Turkey Vulture Records, and Despotz Records, we can add: Goomba Music! These guys have nothing to do with Mario and everything to do with our latest old-new band:
Scum of the Earth
From 2012's "The Devil Made Me Do It", we're bringing out "Via Dela Rosa" and "Born Again Masochist". And yes, that's a video link for Via Dela Rosa. Riggs is really excited to be our first Nu-Metal artist (by his own selection), and the guys at Goomba are eager to offer up even more of their roster. And you will recognize some of their names. (Not you Cipher.) (Okay, maybe Cipher will. I dunno.)
Third: Old and something to show. The next Goin' Places track, "You're Gonna Be My Girl". A short and upbeat track containing what I'm quite sure are veiled threats. Or maybe that's just how Staten Island is. Either way, that's going into Playtest today.
Lastly: Old and nothing to show. And a bit of a sad necessity, due to myriad personal and logistical issues there will not be any further Indie Allstars bundles. I appreciate the support you guys have shown, and I suggest anyone who really enjoyed the concept follow the MusicRage team. I will not be speaking publicly on this any further.
And the Dragonforce and Iron Maiden comparison is one of my most infamous comparisons and probably the one people forgot what actually happened. Glad you remember though. And I stand by my comparison. I fell in love with Dragonforce and was more familiar with their work, and even though Iron Maiden is older, connecting them to what I already love was a great way to get me to like them. So at the end of the day, I got to appreciate a band I didn't before. So I have no regrets.
