Soundchaser on tour supporting RAGE

Is obviously not a secret about my passion and love for Rage… I started listening to this band when I was 18; The first song I heard was “In A Nameless Time” from the album Lingua Mortis (1996). In Venezuela Back then,used to be very difficult to find european metal, had to be through the friend of a friend, who can find you a copy of the cassette of any european metal band. anyway… my friend Jorge Romero (from my former band Torre de Marfil) found the “Lingua Mortis” CD and we spend the whole night listening to it and drinking red wine … like 4 times in a row :) … but back then in 1998, Rage was about to release the XIII album, and I still remember that little preview on their website of the song From the cradle to the grave

I became into a diehard fan of Peavy and his music, I bought most of the Rage’s albums at once and I discovered their entire career, and even nowadays I still collecting those rare editions of news and old albums!

Just to name a few of my favourites songs:

*Changes (Sign of Heaven/Incomplete/Turn the Page)
*Medicine
*Lament
*Start
*Saddle The Wind
*Gentle Murders
*Empty Hollow (Entire)

and so on, and on…  I like them all actually!

My love is that big for this band that in my left arm I’ve a Tattoo of Rage XIII and the Soundchaser of “End of All Days“…

Rage has been a huge influence on my music, (just look at the name of my band… ;)) so just imagine how do I feel to share with all of you this lovely news on their 30th anniversary…

Blogging again :)

Hi guys … its been a while since I post anything on my blog, so here I am ..I’ve been busy working with difference projects and I really haven’t had the chance to spend some time writing some lines in here!

Things are going well in Belgium, Im playing almost every weekend with the cover bands “The Apes”  in different Pubs and some Motorbikes Clubs (very successful on this ones ;)) … also with Acoustica (no site… sorry!)… just Tom (Soundchaser) and I playing some acoustic songs in my funny way! ;)

This year (again) I’ve been in the Musikmesse 2014 in Frankfurt, with some friends trying different gear and meeting some great artist and friends Im doing during this adventure of Rock n’ Roll!

I recently had a private class with Victor Smolski to share some time playing and learning some technique to develop a bit more my skills on the guitar and also on the composing level… What could I say?, not just a terrific guy, a really nice and charming professor, without complicate to much the way to play guitar, just the way I like… all from the heart! (using some theory of course) … I’m expanding my music vocabulary every day taking a piece of here and there of my favorite musician!.. so was a great experience!

Im on a really great inspiring “muse” for composing, I got like 5/6 new songs for Soundchaser, very different compared with the music of  “Changes Part I” … actually the next SC album won’t be the Part II, that will be in a future… I thing this album will be more straight and “in your face” metal album.  the next album will be like : Hit the fist on the table!… harder than ever!!

Here’s some Pics of SC live in Hertenrock Fest, Belgium 2014

Near nine minutes of the forthcoming album “Changes Part I: The Betrayed”

Lobo 2013 (Ft. Joan Pabón)

Siguiendo con la nostalgia de hacer Metal en nuestro idioma, he decidido re-grabar un tema que gustó mucho dentro del panorama del Rock Nacional Venezolano, de la banda Torre de Marfil : LOBO!!

En esta grabación cuento con la colaboración de un talentoso músico y gran vocalista Venezolano: Joan Pabón de la banda Aphelium

Definitivamente Este tema merecía una actualización de grabación y sonido, y gracias a la nueva tecnología ha sido posible lograrlo!

Quiero agradecer profundamente a Joan Pabón por ayudarme a rescatar este tema tan querido por mi y por los fanáticos del Metal Venezolano.

Espero lo disfruten.

Cantos de Victoria II (Guerreros de Rohan)

Para todos los Fanáticos de Torre de Marfil… hoy me he inspirado y compuse un tema EN ESPAÑOL, inspirado en CANTOS DE VICTORIA… pues he escrito CANTOS DE VICTORIA II (GUERREROS DE ROHAN) … siguiendo la linea de CDV original, el Señor de los anillos… y si… es muy BLIND GUARDIAN!! … no se puede escribir nada relativo al Señor de los Anillos sin sonar a BG! ;)

La canción liricamente habla de los guerreros de Rohan en la migración y batalla en MINAS TIRITH …

Espero les guste!

ROCK!
M.
