    The flyer pretty much says it all but anyway, my band is opening for Robin Trower this Friday night at The Starland Ballroom!

    We need to get as many people as possible to come out to this show, as it is our first time there. We want to make a GREAT first impression!

    I have plenty of tickets left, so if you all are free this Friday, I would love for you to come out to the show, and meet you all in person!

    We also heard that there will be a rep from Grooveyard Records there, and it would look even better if we had a lot more fans there for us!!

    PLEASE email me if you can make it, I'll mail you the tickets or I'll even drive to wherever to drop them off in person! My email: kyle.griffin@ferguson.com

    Thanks everyone! I'd appreciate any feedback!

    P.S.
    If your a guitarist, there is a better chance of knowing his name. Anyway a little fact about Opeth's new album, they are covering a Trower song called "Bridge of Sighs". Cool huh?!

    Hey guys. I'm currently in a band called Steadfast.
    We are a melodic combination of Thrash, Death, and Power metal.
    Our 4 song demo can be heard on our myspace, along with our cover of "Blinded By Fear" by At The Gates.

    This is that local band that I've started working with recently; the show will be starting around 9-10pm Eastern (around 6-7pm Pacific) on Saturday night (check dementiaradio.com later in the week for an exact schedule). The DJ and both band members are freakin' hilarious guys, so even if you don't like the music, odds are that you'll have fun listening anyway 'cuz they'll crack you up. :)

    Jax<-flying to NY with these clowns for this thing; gonna be a blast :)



    ~A Prelude to Tragedy's 'Shadows of the Past' Internet Radio Debut

    A Prelude to Tragedy (the Northern California band previously known as Esucarys, until their recent name change in late 2007) is pleased to announce their appearance on Dementia Radio on Saturday evening, March 22.

    Demented Dave, the founder of Dementia Radio, will be playing the band's new cd 'Shadows of the Past' in its entirety, as well as interviewing band members Steve Sorrell (lead & backing vocals, guitars and bass) and Steve Koelling (keyboards, lead and backing vocals) live and in person that evening. Listeners will be able to chat in the station's IRC channel while listening to the show; see www.dementiaradio.com for the show schedule as well as more information.

    'Shadows of the Past' was released in December of 2007; their debut cd 'Diary of a Lost Soul' (released under the band name Esucarys) was released in 2001. The band has plans to begin playing live shows in spring and summer of 2008, as well as beginning work on a third cd. More information on A Prelude to Tragedy can be found on their website (www.apreludetotragedy.com) and their MySpace page (www.myspace.com/apreludetotragedy777).

    I just bought the album 'Hope' from the tunisian band Myrath.
    Probably the best 'debut' album this year (they released an album before 'Hope' but only in Tunisia)

    They play progressive metal in vein of Adagio and the album is produced and recorded by Adagio keyboard player Kevin Codfert.

    Myrath @ MySpace.com

    Highly recommended!

    Wait a second, this is in Albany ? Whoda thought a band would be coming to Albany to promote themselves ? Im ashamed to admit Im not following along well though Jax, what station do you tune into to hear this ? OK... I see, its internet radio ? Just another one of those things Im oblivious to. Well have fun, Albanys not much of a city, though they have tried. Entertainment has taken a slide from what it once was, which still was nothing compared to larger cities.

    Yeah, the dj is a longtime friend of ours & we decided it'd be more fun to come out to Albany & do the interview/show in person than just do it on the phone. Just one of those wild hair things..'what if we just go to NY & do it in person?' 'yeah, let's do that'..and so it came to be.

    This'll be the first time the guys in the band have met the DJ in person after having known him for many years, so it's going to be a killer weekend on many levels. :)

    And yeah, it's easy to tune in; on the station's site (dementiaradio.com), there's a link for tuning in and you can choose hi-fi or low-fi on either Winamp or Windows Media Player there, as well as a link for chat that'll let you come into chat and talk with..err..type at us online while we do the show (or if you use an irc client, it's irc.starchat.net and the channel is #dementia).

    Wow, this was a nice surprise...a euro style power/speed metal band that sounds like top of the genre stuff...from the US! Hailing from Massachussetts, they recently re-recorded their debut album from 2004, which apparently had shoddy production...but it sounds amazing now, plus they included a couple bonus tracks...a cover of Iron Maiden's Flight Of Icarus, and a kickass metalized theme (Dr. Wily) from the classic Mega Man 2 Nintendo game, which is actually one of the coolest things I've ever heard :worship: The guitar work is intricate and blazing (instrumental sections are so good), the vocals very smooth, and the keyboard player, Peter Rutcho, is excellent...also happens to be a producer. Anyway, check 'em out...

    Hey not bad. Generic like a fucking pencil, but what power metal band isn't nowadays? Excellent cover song of the Dr Wiley theme.

    Also, I like the epic song titles/album art. :)

    Alright, i figure I'll finally promote my band here a bit more with our latest update...

    Myspace
    I think Jason added different songs about a month or two ago, so check it out. It's old material (way before my time haha) but it still kicks ass.

    We're also going to have some new band photos and some video up soon. And uh.... if anyone knows a good program that can be used to crop video so we can cut a few songs out of an .avi file, that'd be great... either mac or pc.

    Kill with power
