Instrumental Rock For The Hungry Heart

Boston guitarist Bill Bracken's latest cassette contains 6 songs from his upcoming CD entitled BRACKEN. Displayed herein is the sheer virtuosity and precision prowess of an exceptional player reaching for the outer limits of his instrument. His technique is stellar, deeply rooted through his heart, and his heart is pure rock 'n' roll. "Space Drag" doesn't mind panning its guitar lines (recall Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love") while "Kermit's House Party" sports an inspired, late-Hendrix riff. Frank Zappa-as-guitar-hero crops up in several places, predominantly on "Ledfoot" and "Silver Coupe". Overall, Bracken's guitar lines are crisp, cutting and tastefully taut from top to bottom. Bracken was originally profiled in the October-November, 1998 edition of The Undiscovered.

alb Bill started playing guitar when he was 12, learning many Led Zeppelin and AC/DC songs by ear. Classical guitar studies helped him develop his fingerpicking and attending the Berklee College of Music helped Bill gain a solid understanding of ear training, harmony and sight reading. He has played with many groups, and was featured in the Spotlight section of Guitar Player and the Resume section of Guitar For The Practicing Musician. Currently, Bill is busy finishing up tracks for his upcoming CD, doing all the recording himself on his Alesis ADAT digital recorder. Between writing and recording, Bill can be found performing with his band BRACKEN and teaching guitar to a roster full of students.

Bracken anticipates marketing and promoting his instrumental CD on the Internet and gaining the support of a broader spectrum of music lovers.

Duel Guitars, High-Tech Shred

Eclipse features the guitar techtronics of two young shredders, 18-year-old American, James Malone and 17-year-old Greek, Gus Karamitroudis. The duo is circulating a 4-song demo CD-R replete with heavy metal, high-energy compositions featuring extended solo passages, crisp harmonic interplay and some expressive acoustic work. Both guitarists display explosive speed on the first three numbers (including the melodic "Masquerade") and they unplug for their last tune, "Loneliness". Their CD-R shows that Malone and Karamitroudis are off to a promising start as they continue to develop their heavy metal songwriting talents and individual solo styles. Eclipse was originally profiled in the October-November, 1998 edition of The Undiscovered.

pic Eclipse was born when James and Gus met while attending Berklee College Of Music's Summer Performance Program. The band's influences include Yngwie Malmsteen, Vinnie Moore, Joe Stump, UFO, MSG as well as many duel guitar bands such as Racer X and Cacophony. James is a student of former Legato recording artist Scott Mishoe and Gus studies guitar with Leviathan recording artist Joe Stump. Gus recently relocated to the United States from Greece in order that Eclipse could work on new material. Their CD-R demo will be distributed in Europe through Holy Records.

In order to fulfill their goal of sharing their music with the world, Eclipse is now hard at work on their upcoming project which will include both vocal and instrumental songs.
