Marty Rakaczewski

Rocker Howls At The Moon

"Caution: Listening to this CD backwards can cause you to turn into a werewolf!" So states the back of guitarist Marty Rakaczewski's demo CD-R, Werewolves In Paradise. Consider yourself warned. Although no one here could test the validity of the warning, since no one could figure out how exactly to play the CD-R backwards in the first place, it was decided to play it forwards, and take the consequences. Two instrumental rock tracks were included. The first, the "Werewolves In Paradise" features a lot of howling, as one might expect, along with hard rock and metal soloing with plenty of two handed tapping, metal squeals and wang bar antics from the Van Halen school of axemanship. "The Spirit Of The Dragon" follows and is a ballad tempo number that features some good slow licks followed by a crazy two-handed middle section.

alb Marty is a 25 year old musician from Wilkes-Barre PA, who has been playing the drums, guitar and keyboards for about 10 years. He has shared the stage with many bands, doing opening shows for national acts such as Brett Michaels, Ratt, Firehouse, Overkill and Get Your Guns. Marty has also collaborated on movie soundtracks, and has done recording for hire. He typically plays all the instruments on all of his recordings. Marty's music influences include Led Zeppelin, Cream, Black Sabbath, Motley Crue, Dokken and Guns 'N Roses. As far as guitar players he prefers Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, George Lynch, Steve Lynch and Steve Vai.

Rakaczewski's goal is to get rock music back to the forefront and bring back great musicianship and a great stage show. He wants to release his own album and take his show on the road - he won't stop until he reaches as many new people with it as possible.

Matthieu Chell Pain

Death Metal Meets Indian Music

Matthieu Chell Pain's CD-R, The Mushrooms' Fantasy, is a heroic-fantasy parody. Some mushrooms who live underground (called the Dark Mushrooms) plan to invade mushroomland where the nice mushrooms live. Some of the nice mushrooms go to the mountains where the Zen Mushrooms dwell to ask for help. The main music style is progressive rock but you can hear baroque counterpoint, heavy melodic guitar solos, death metal, Indian music, symphonic music and even flamenco. The album includes two other songs not related to the Fantasy, one of which, "Angel", is dedicated to Jason Becker. "Angel" features some of the most emotionally wicked soloing, and may be a great place to start experiencing Pain's music and technical artistry.

pic Matthieu is a guitar player/composer from Toulouse, France. He was born in 1981, and he started playing guitar at 15. The music Matthieu plays is deeply influenced by blues, classical music and rock. He has spent time with a blues pop band and a progressive metal band, but the lack of serious musicians led him to work solo on his own compositions - hence, the idea for a rock opera. Matthieu has also completed an album of electronic music, and is almost done with another CD with vocals and blues solos. A fourth solo CD is in the works, which will be exclusively instrumental and very much influenced by classical music. Matthieu works as a guitar teacher, but tendonitis in his left arm forced him to stop playing guitar until it heals.

Pain's goal is to work with artists from every culture. Like Jimi Hendrix and Shawn Lane before him, he finds playing and jamming with musicians from different cultures creates a powerful music that takes the listener to another dimension.
