Marty Friedman
Marty Friedman
Marty Friedman has sold over 10 million albums with the multi-platinum band Megadeth. He has also a dedicated following for his own solo albums which stylistically range from orchestral soundtrack style music to furious aggressive rock, with the common thread being Marty`s unique and tasty sense of melody. His latest album is called `Music For Speeding` and it marks his solo debut with the heavy hitting major label Universal Japan as well as Steve Vai`s Favored Nations label in the US. Marty has toured the world several times over very successfully withMegadeth. Along with touring, he is in high demand to do music/guitar seminars and clinics all over the U.S., Asia, Europe and South America, which he has done hundreds to date. Marty is also a regular columnist for Guitar World magazine, Young Guitar magazine (Japan) and Burrn Magazine in which he writes a column in Japanese, a reader favorite. Marty has designed his own signature model guitar with Jackson Guitars (the KE-1) that has been selling consistently since it was put on the market. He has just begun an endorsement relationship with Ibanez. His new 'Marty Friedman model' guitar will make its world debut in Oct '05 at the Tokyo Music Show. Along with doing his solo performances around the world, Marty is currently touring and recording with Japanese mega-star Aikawa Nanase.

Before joining Megadeth in Feb.1990, Marty was in a band called Cacophony, which released 2 albums (among their indie label's highest selling) and toured the U.S. and Japan. This band highlighted the potent guitar playing of Marty and fellow guitarist Jason Becker (who was to join David Lee Roth's band and record an album with him in 1990). Marty has received extremely high acclaim and many awards around the world for his unmistakably `Marty-esque` way of playing the guitar.

Marty is from Washington D.C. originally but has lived in many places including Hawaii, Germany and California, giving him an odd and interesting approach to making his music. He currently resides in Tokyo
Scale The Summit
Scale The Summit
Generally speaking, progressive rock bands aren't known for their efficiency — but SCALE THE SUMMIT, who are preparing to release their fourth album in six years, have never exactly played by the rules. First, consider their chosen genre of music, which is perpetually unfashionable by mainstream standards. Then consider that, in the true spirit of prog, they decided to take things one step further — which in their case meant forging ahead without a vocalist. One can only imagine the shaking heads of friends, family members and faculty at Hollywood's Musicians Institute (where the band formed while its members were students) and their many attempts to dissuade the group
from attempting to make a living as an instrumental progressive
rock/metal band. Luckily, they didn't listen — and after hearing "The Migration," SCALE THE SUMMIT's new album, you'll wonder why anyone in their right minds ever doubted the band in the first place. Co-produced and recorded by Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me), it's another adventurous, thrilling helping of atmospheric, evocative soundscapes that aptly showcase the band's many talents — the greatest of which
might just be their ability to combine virtuosity with tastefulness.
As always, the group includes several of their trademark,
fleet-fingered "tapping" passages, which are an even greater joy to witness live. Indeed, the live stage is where SCALE THE SUMMIT have earned considerable fans over the past several years, whether touring with progressive royalty such as Dream Theater, Zappa Plays Zappa and Cynic, supporting neo-prog masters Periphery, Protest The Hero and BTBAM, performing at high-profile festivals (Make Music Pasadena, SXSW, Prog Day, the MetalSucks "Suckfest") or headlining. The band will kick off what will surely be an extensive new touring cycle in support of "The Migration" by performing across North America alongside Intronaut this summer. Buckle up, as SCALE THE SUMMIT's odyssey is just beginning.
The Fine Constant
The Fine Constant
The band formed in early May when Sarah Longfield reached out to her compatriots in an attempt to begin performing her solo material in a live setting. Within a just few short weeks the line-up was solidified. Months of touring, writing, and collaborating are soon to follow.
Nightshadow
Nightshadow
Nightshadow was originally conceived in 2012, but it would be 3 years before the band would really get started. Nightshadow's goal is to give San Diego a dose of epic power metal \m/
