All That Remains has an album titled The Order of Things set to drop on Feb. 24, but fans don’t have to wait too long for a taste of the new music.
The Massachusetts-based band officially dropped the record’s first single, a heavy-hitter called “This Probably Won’t End Well” that they will likely be incorporating into their live sets during their upcoming tour.

Blues master Joe Bonamassa certainly knows how to pass the time when he’s hanging out before a live show. During a recent stop in Greenville, S.C., in support of his new album, Different Shades of Blue, Bonamassa pulled out a vintage Charvel guitar that was inspired by the striped instruments Eddie Van Halen made famous, posting an impromptu jam on his Facebook wall.
“Here is some a backstage partying with an original 1978 Charvel black-and-yellow stripe guitar just like Mr Van Halen’s,” Bonamassa wrote in the video’s description. “No red M&Ms, no dancing girls, just a bunch of Diet Cokes and reverb.”
Charvel guitars and the Gothenburg Concert Hall, home to the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, are excited to host a clinic featuring Charvel signature artist and guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan on Wednesday, Nov. 26 at 5:30 p.m. at the Gothenburg Concert Hall in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The intimate event will also feature a Q&A session, a discussion on his Charvel signature model, a Charvel guitars exhibition and a one-of-a-kind performance by Govan in a beautiful venue.
In addition to his work as a music transcriber and entertaining guitar clinician, Govan has recorded and toured with acts ranging from Asia to Dizzee Rascal. His guitar and bass work for Replay Heaven (a sample recreation company) has graced hit singles by the likes of Gotye, the Sugababes, Cee Lo Green and Tinie Tempah.
Gojira frontman Joe Duplantier worked with Charvel to come up with his perfect signature guitar, an iconic San Dimas Style 2. In this video, Duplantier talks about his new “killing machine with class,” which he uses on the stage and in the studio.
During a recent tour stop at New York City’s Highland Ballroom with his band the Aristocrats, guitar virtuoso Guthrie Govan was paid a visit by the folks from Music Zoo to check out his latest prototype guitar from the Charvel Custom Shop.
Check out the breakdown below and visit the Aristocrats’ official website for more information.
The guys at Andertons Music in the U.K. recently checked out a few of the new Charvel Pro-Mod series of guitars, featuring both the So-Cal and San Dimas models.
And, the review of these hot-rodded axes would not be complete without some input from hair-metal “legends” Richie Sambuka and Wilder “The Beastmaster” Beast, who get a call in the second half of the video to teach the audience how to really rock.
Watch what these guitars can do in the clip below.
Andreas Kisser is widely known as the ace shredder for Brazilian metal stalwarts Sepultura, and that band has an album coming out on Oct. 25.
But in the past year, Kisser has been working with another band, the all-star lineup of De La Tierra.
Made up of Álex González (Maná), Flavio Cianciarulo (Los Fabulosos Cadillacs) and Andrés Giménez (D-mente, A.N.I.M.A.L.), De La Tierra has paired with Stanley Soares, a longtime Sepultura collaborator, to produce music that is definitely heavy.
This is no supergroup, however. Kisser notes that the collaboration came together organically with a notion to continue as a group beyond their debut album.
Charvel.com recently caught up with Kisser to get the inside scoop on De La Tierra.
Charvel.com: How did De La Tierra originally come about?
Kisser: It’s amazing. I’m so glad that I received the invitation from these guys. It started with Álex González, who is the drummer from Maná, and Andrés Giménez from Argentina. Álex is a metalhead. Even when he plays with Maná, you see the skulls on his drum set. He wants to show that he has some metal blood. He and Andres were talking about this project for like eight years. It was always, “Come on, let’s do this.” And finally, they said, “Let’s make it happen.” That was last year, and Álex called me about this heavy project. He said we wanted to sing in Spanish, and I said, “F**k, that’s great!” With me here, we could put some Portuguese on there, as well. (more…)
