Catherine Diebel: Dysfunctional Floyd

I am bored of conventional sounds. I am annoyed by the fact that musical tonalities and structures are so limited in mainstream music. I am sick of hearing 4/4, I V I V I V. Although I still enjoy some songs (and write them as well) that fall into these categories, my main prerogative as a musician and artist is to advocate and disseminate unique, transcendental, experimental, and nuanced sounds and ideas.

The balance of my Jem's Floyd got thrown totally out of whack so instead of fixing it right away I decided to just jam out for a while, enjoying all the strange sounds. Drums are only present until1:57. Oh, and check out the lossless .wav format on my Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/cattheadversary

Yvette Young: the tide - acoustic tapping

Yvette Young: playing a show tomorrow in Monterey. Adapted this song to acoustic so I could play it!
I played it a bit faster because I was on my last half bar of camera battery.

Jess Lewis: Eternal Guitar up for auction

If you are a big fan of Jess Lewis then how does the idea of owning her guitar sound? Pretty immense right! Jess' amazing Eternal Guitar (used in her brand new Eternal Blues package) will be going up for auction in April, and you could be the lucky owner of it. Keep an eye out in the coming newsletters, but in the meantime if you would like more info then please contact Tony Gravel who will be happy to help. It's safe to say that this guitar will be worth a small fortune in the future, so it will be a very tidy investment for the lucky winner!

Doris Yeh: Chthonic - Rhythm Crusher

Near 100 people volunteered to be the model for CHTHONIC’s new album cover photo.

CHTHONIC DETAILS COVER ARTWORK FOR UPCOMING SEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM - New mobile app game "CHTHONIC - Rhythm Crusher" now available via iTunes Store

TAIPEI, TAIWAN - As the new album from Taiwanese extreme metal band, Chthonic, undergoes mixing at Sweet Spot studio in Sweden, the work on the album's cover has also begun in Taiwan. After nearly 100 hopeful candidates replied to a casting call, which called for girls who were "at least 160cm tall, skinny, with light skin, and are ok with full-body painting," Chthonic bassist Doris Yeh and the art design team decided on Bu to represent the album's cover girl.

"It's certainly not an easy job for ancient Chinese emperors to choose their wives," said Yeh jokingly after several sleepless nights of deliberation. "I was even looking through the pictures in my dreams!"

ChthoniC - Rhythm Crusher Official Teaser

With a concept in mind to have an elder, a girl and a child as the cover picture, and visualize the idea of armed body and mind through special makeup and computer graphics, the search began for candidates to represent the theme. Embodiments for the roles of the elder and the child were quickly decided. Hsu Ching-fu, a clergyman from the Gikong Presbyterian Church, and A-Chi, son of a well-known tattooist Ah-J, were picked to represent these figures.

The shooting of the album cover photo was completed late last month. The new album, the band's seventh overall, is slotted to be released in Europe, North America, and Asia in June on Spinefarm/Universal Music.

In the meantime, the band has been hard at work promoting its new mobile app game, the first of its kind to use exclusively heavy metal music, "CHTHONIC - Rhythm Crusher."

Fans from all around the world were invited to join the festivities via the game's online 'Vs. Mode,' with the winning fan in attendance taking home a brand new iPad Mini. Chthonic fan, Satoshi Mukaide, took home the grand prize, despite losing the final match to Chthonic vocalist Freddy Lim.

Said Lim, "When I'm playing 'Rhythm Crusher,' I can feel the energy from the music even more! I think that's why I'm so addicted to it."

Chthonic continues to battle online against fans every day. The band members can be identified by their personal screen names: FreddyLimTT, dorisyeh0919 and Jessefilth, so be sure to keep an eye out for the chance to battle the current "Chthonic - Rhythm Crusher" World Champion, vocalist Freddy Lim!
