I recently had a chance to chat with Henrik Klingenberg, keyboardist with the Finnish power metal act Sonata Arctica, about the band’s new project, a re-recording of their album Ecliptica – Revisited. More than fifteen years later the group has revisited this release’s songs with a slightly different line-up, and a lot more experience. The result is a record which Sonata Arctica fans are not going to want to miss! Here is how the conversation with Klingenberg went.

Brooklyn, New York rockers, The Bushwick Hotel, released their stomping new 7-song album, Graffiti of the Young Man’s Mind, on November 19, 2013. Ever-since the band has been busting their asses to promote their new, dirty, blues-influenced recording. Check out the lead single and title track, “Graffiti of the Young Man’s Mind,” for an example of how banging this album is. Recently we spoke with the band’s heavily-tattooed front man, Gregory Ferreira, about all things ink.

Secrettes is making a name for themselves in the Toronto music scene and have just released their self-titled debut EP. Tickling the ivories, for lack of a better phrase, is Dan Miller aka “Wolf”. Wolf recently took sometime to tell us, and you, all about his Roland JP-8000. Check out what he thinks of this crazy music box and why he uses it!
