On this very day, April 24, 5 years ago (YIKES), Mark and I (with the help of roughly two dozen simply amazing guest contributors) released an imperfect but genuine attempt at bedroom metal that sounded halfway decent. It was called Soul Cycle II.
Looking back, it's not half bad! A lot has changed since then, and if given the opportunity there are definitely some things we would have done differently, but hey - we tried something a little crazy, and maybe we sort of pulled it... off.
Once again, we want to thank each and every one of you who downloaded the album, whether you did or did not throw a few bucks our way. Mark and I are still, to this very day, receiving some of the kindest and most unexpected words of support and appreciation from you via Facebook, email and otherwise. It's a little overwhelming! Life has sped up a lot for both of us, so much in fact that music often takes a backseat, but it means so much to know you guys are still listening.
We hope you'll keep listening in the months to come, when Soul Cycle III is released.
This is so good!
Always wanted to jam along with a true guitar idol? Now you can! In this amazing song ...'The Hills 1986' from our recent 'Jam With... Mika Tyyska' package we've got alternating sections of lead and rhythm playing so that you can jam along with this video and respond to Mr. Fastfinger / Mika Tyyskä's guitar lines with your own! Use the onscreen info to help you make your soloing choices.
If you want to get this jam along track and 4 others, as well as every lead phrase Mika plays extracted and tabbed out with video/audio/backing so you can learn his lines too, then click here to get your copy: https://jamtrackcentral.com/s…/package/jam-with-mika-tyyska/
Sometimes, on a rare occasion, it's possible that there are just too many notes.
This is so cool! Can you imagine how many people who heard this wouldn't know it was a Metallica song unless you told them?
A lot of people ask us, "hey sol sake - why ur songs sound such shit in 2017??"
It's simple. We write, record and mix everything using desktop computers that are so old the Internet no longer supports the web browsers installed on them. Never give up on your dreams!
