Miss May I Drops Video for ‘I.H.E.’

Posted on July 29th, 2015 by MDuffy

Miss May I I.H.E.

Ohio metallers Miss May I went super heavy in both theme and music for their new video for the track “I.H.E.”

The clip focuses on a teenaged boy who is building a coffin with a harsh authority figure. As they drag it into the woods, the teen can’t take it anymore and turns on his abuser, tackling him and depositing the body in the previously empty coffin.

The intense visual is also complimented by Miss May I’s trademark brutal sound and skittish camera angles.

Currently on the Vans Warped Tour, Miss May I has an album entitled Deathless coming out Aug. 7, but in the meantime, check out the “I.H.E.” video after the jump. (more…)

Mike Orlando Randy Rhoads Remembered
Mike Orlando was one of the artists on hand over the weekend to honor guitar royalty at the “Randy Rhoads Remembered: A Celebration of a Guitar Legend” concert at the Observatory in Santa Ana, Calif.

The Adrenaline Mob axeman had an important job, too, as he lent his prodigious talents to a version of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Diary of a Madman” in which he had to play both acoustic and electric.

Joined by bassist Phil Soussan, drummer Brian Tichy and vocalist/bassist Michael Devin, Orlando performed the classical intro to the song before unleashing the fury with his Charvel Desolation series guitar.

Watch some fan-shot footage of Orlando after the jump. (more…)

Performer Magazine Tests A Charvel DS-1 ST

Posted on July 17th, 2012 by MDuffy

Performer Magazine recently took a hard look at a Charvel DS-1 ST, noting that the axe was great for players who want a classic look with contemporary playability.

“For most modern music, this guitar excels, especially hard rock and metal,” noted reviewer Chris Devine. “Distorted, the pickups have plenty of clarity and punch, and the clean tones are perfect. With heavy overdrive, the tone controls don’t have a lot of range, but when cleaner tones are used, it’s much more noticeable. Vintage tones reside in here, too; rolling down the tone controls reveals warm, jazzy sounds.”

Learn More About Electric Blues With Dave Nassie

Posted on June 20th, 2012 by MDuffy

Bleeding Through guitarist Dave Nassie has posted a new lesson on blues guitar, with a focus on using dynamics and bending.

“I was thinking to myself, ‘How am I going to put together a lesson for people to feel that within themselves they can portray more feeling in their playing?’ Nassie said.

“That’s kind of what I want to go for. We’re going to use a blues context because it’s the easiest to do, not so much centered on licks but approach.”

Learn from the guitar virtuoso in the clip below.

For those in the California/Nevada area, you can meet the teacher in persons, as Nassie has a new slate of Charvel Desolation Series Clinics this weekend.
