Vitalism – SY (EP Review)

I originally intended to write about something else but when I heard the band Vitalism’s music, I knew I needed to tell more people about them.

Dream Theater – Thoughts on Distance Over Time and More

My overall feeling with Distance Over Time is that Dream Theater has gotten its magic back! I’ve heard so many elements of what made me love this band in the first place that I can’t help but enjoy the music. I see this as Dream Theater acknowledging they write better music when they compose together, rather than making the entire project the undertaking of one or two people. If this album isn’t proof of that, I don’t know what is.

“I always want everything I do to be as accurate as humanly possible to how the musicians actually perform it.” – An Interview with Evan Bradley

Most recently, Evan transcribed all guitar parts from Cynic’s iconic debut, Focus. The book is out now via Sheet Happens Publishing and you can get it in a few different formats. In this interview, you will discover how this project came about, what Paul Masvidal himself thought of Evan’s work, how he impressed John Petrucci when he won Ernie Ball’s “Match the Master” contest, why he wanted to explore transcribing guitar parts, and how he approaches guitar playing in general.

Gear Summary of 2018

2018 was a continuation of 2017. I had the same goal, but now I was getting more comfortable with home recording, as well as writing music. I sold a few items to help fund some of the purchases, but those were things I wasn’t really using all too often. It was an interesting year that got me more involved with DAW plug-ins, swapping pickups, pitch shifting, and more tone chasing.

Delta Works – Reviews of Standalone Tracks

I like their psychedelic side more than anything. It really brought back memories from a different life and I thoroughly enjoyed that while I reviewed their music.

The Thinking Man’s Metal Blog

There are two reasons why I started this web site:
  1. I enjoy discovering insights about a band, a particular album or a song, or a certain musical event. I believe the more you know what went into a certain musical piece, the richer your listening experience will be. I hope to contribute to your experience by sharing what I’ve discovered along the way.
  2. Unfortunately many rock and metal sites these days focus on click-bait articles and try to generate interest by taking quotes out of context and using false information. Whether they do these intentionally or not is up for debate, but the fact is there are not many sites that focus on accuracy of their information.
    Megadepth is a blog that focuses on hard rock and heavy metal bands and musicians. But unlike many other sites/blogs that do quick posts without the proper research, I dedicate my time to in-depth articles. I always add my opinion in the articles, but you will know that I base them on facts; not rumors.
