Sam Vallen is a Brisbane guitarist with some amazing chops and technique - he plays in the progressive group named "Quandry". He's in the process of recording and releasing an EP titled "Caligula's Horse" with the singer from Arcane named Jim Grey. It should be quite a brilliant project - his playing and composition is really incredible. Here's a few examples:
Hey everyone, it's spelt miNNemaNN. That's a whole lot of N's. It's going to take a while for everyone to get it right. Including me.
Turns out he might/sort of/kind not be available to record with DT in the studio right now.
Apparently Minnemann is recording with a band named Psyaxis, on Feb the 7th in Florida. But aren't DT meant to be recording their new album right now? Can they get it done before the 7th? I guess it's possible! But remember that Minnemann is a real studio recording drummer. If Psyaxis have all their stuff written he can probably record for them in a week or two and jump back to DT.
But further confusing the issue is the media release, which says that "Dream Theater's drummer Marco Minnemann is recording with Psyaxis". But he hasn't actually been confirmed yet. So is it a secretly recorded code? It is stupidity? Is someone just trying to mess with us? Is it a consipracy?
Unless all the rumours are wrong and it's actually Mike Mangini.
NO. I stand my ground. It's still Minnemann.
(PS: Hey, if you search for "Psyaxis Mineman" in google you get a googlewack because of the spelling error. Cool, that's my first on... Read More ->
I did some music for James Rolfe's latest video "The Dragon in my Dreams". I did the intro theme, and the music for the main scene at 5:26. This one was definitely a challenge but possibly the most rewarding I've ever done.
and here's the credit:
. It's a great song. Weird that the rest of the band didn't play.
