A quick hello from the road! Shows are going well, all the bands and crew are super bro-fessional and down-to-earth. For the people who´ve been asking about the equipment I´m using on this tour: I´m using Alexander Guth (STORMWARRIOR (Official)´s regular guitar player - great dude, check him out!)´s stuff, a silverblade preamp through an engl poweramp into a marshall JCM900 cabinet, no effects. The wah-wah some people have asked about after the show is actually just the tone-knob on my Soultool signature model :)

I´m super-stoked to anounce that Mr. Linus Klausenitzer (of Obscura and Noneuclid) appears on 2 songs of the new Fountainhead record on fretless bass. Just received the first tracks and it sounds fantastic!!

The finish-line is in sight, my friends! The next guest musician will be anounced shortly (another FANTASTIC bass player!), once he recorded his tracks. Guitars & keys are 95% done. Will start on live-strings & orchestrations next week. Can´t really say ATM how long vocals will take, but the instrumental version of the new record is definitely very close to completion!

Another little preview/lesson from one of the albums I´m working on ATM ( Pitts Minnemann Project 2, in this case), for those who haven´t seen it yet. I´m also thinking of doing skype lessons, any interest in that?

Here´s some more new music in written form. From the upcoming 2nd Pitts Minnemann Project album (feat. Jimmy Pitts/Marco Minnemann/Jerry Twyford & yours truly), here´s the arpeggio section of a tune called "Conquistador". The bass/keyboard-riff in this part uses all 12 chromatic notes, making this one quite a challenge to play over and come up with a nice, logical-sounding progression. Any wants to have a go at playing it before the album comes out? :-)

Recorded bass with super-bro Jacob Schmidt of Defeated Sanity official yesterday. Jacob had already played bass on the titletrack off "Fear Is The Enemy" - great to have him back on my upcoming new record as well. Alas, I wasn´t able to write something he had difficulty playing....again. Maybe some day! ;-)

sonic RISE is a new rock band from berlin, and I helped them out a bit on this, their first demo, by couching them a bit and recording guitars, bass & vox at my homestudio last year. They just released this music-video for one of the tracks from that demo/EP.

It´s my 30th birthday today. I´m not really one for big celebrations though, so I´ll be spending the day in the studio working on the new record. But if anyone wants to congratulate me nonetheless, I´d recommend you do so by blasting my latest solo release.

Just wrapped up guitar parts for another tune of the new Pitts Minnemann Project album and also videotaped the whole tune for a full playthrough video. I think I can already promise some of my best and most intense playing yet, hitting everything from prog freakouts to reggae to deathmetal to jazz and back. While we finish up the last remaining tracks, here´s the first teaser just in case you haven´t seen it. It contains the first 4 minutes of an EPIC 24-minute track...
