“Paradigms” named Instrumental Prog-Metal Album of the Year

2018 was a flourishing year, with a plethora of amazing records in the prog rock and prog metal genre. Today, I’m extremely honored to announce that “Paradigms” was named Instrumental Prog-Metal Album of the Year on Sonic Perspectives.

You know me, I don’t like music to be ranked, because it’s not a competition or a race for who’s the best. There is no best, only favorites. As the author put it best: “music is a subjective listening experience and our opinions are no more valid than yours”

Guitar Surgery

It’s guitar surgery day.
This is my Ibanez RG3120. It’s getting old, I got it back in 2002. The control knobs and output jack started making crackling sounds lately. (I think somebody lives in there, and scrambles eggs every time I plug in).
Luckily I have a $10 soldering gun which is not cooperating for obvious reasons, and this is probably the second time I ever used a soldering gun, so expect things to go very, very terribly.
