In a new NextLevelGuitar.com lesson inspired by Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan,” guitarist Dave Nassie covers the E minor chord.
Said Nassie: “We are going to talk about how we can take some really nice clean-tone E minor approaches to creating an intro in songs, really looking at how this particular artist did it in their context, so we can get some almost scary sounding E minor tonalities. They work great over a pentatonic scale, and it’s another way to experience jamming while we are practicing.”
Cleveland-based metalcore band Affiance takes music videos to another level with their new clip for the track “Fire,” which is on upcoming album Blackout.
The video begins with a warning that notes that all stunts were performed by professionals or under the supervision of professionals. What type of stunts, you ask? Well, midway through “Fire,” members of the band are actually lit on fire as they shred through the hard-hitting song.

Falling in Reverse certainly threw a party on stage when they recently performed their cover of “Gangsta’s Paradise” at the inaugural Alternative Press Music Awards.
