“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.

Underrated Albums: Metallica – …And Justice For All

I can’t help but feel …And Justice For All will always remain somewhat underrated. The production debate and the overwhelming press coverage on some of the other albums will always push Justice to the back burner. It’s not fair, though. This is such a killer album.

Message In A Cloud – Anassa (Album Review)

Anassa, which, according to Google translations means Queen in Greek, features 6 instrumental songs. While they have some different aspects to them, all 6 songs explore a “distinctive melancholic sound”, as the bands puts it.

Bohemian Rhapsody – Movie Review

Certain things should not have been pinned entirely on Freddie and those things will always leave me with mixed feelings. But if this film inspired people who weren’t fans before to do more research on Queen and discover this amazing band and their music, then it has done its job.

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.
