Geçtiğimiz Cumartesi akşamı Limak Hotel çok özel bir geceye ev sahipliği yaptı. Türkiye’nin önde gelen salsa çifti Şenol Vefa Gülmez ve Nur Özkan’ın partnerliklerinin 10. yılı bol müzik ve dans eşliğinde kutlandı.
Ülkemizin en iyi salsa eğitmenleri arasında sayılan, Türkiye’de salsa branşında adeta bir marka haline gelmiş, iki kez Türkiye şampiyonu olmuş, Trio Dans ve Sanat Akademisi’nin kurucuları sevgili Şenol ve Nur, tüm izleyenlere duygusal anlar yaşatan sinevizyon gösterilerinin hemen ardından muhteşem şovlarını sergilerdiler. Onları canlı izlemek şahaneydi doğrusu! Nur’un kıyafetinin şıklığını da vurgulamadan geçemeyeceğim. Çok zarif ve asildi güzel dansçının kostümü. Bu özel çift öğrencilerinden bir dolu tezahürat ve katılımcılardan dakikalarca alkış aldı.
Dün akşam, 16. ODTÜ Sanat Festivali kapsamında ODTÜ Kültür Kongre Merkezinde gerçekleşen bir Ankara Müzisyenleri Konserini daha geride bıraktık ve ben her seferinde olduğu gibi ‘bir an önce gelecek sene olsa da yine gitsek’ diyerek terk ettim Kemal Kurdaş’ı.
Gerçekten, başta Emrehan Halıcı olmak üzere tüm müzisyenleri ve emeği geçen tüm ekibi yürekten kutluyorum; muhteşem bir organizasyon, tam bir müzik şöleniydi. Efsanevi Radyo ODTÜ programı Modern Sabahlar’ın sunucuları Ege, Fahir ve Oktay’ı da unutmamak gerek tabii, zira geceye onların katkısı da inanılmaz büyük.
The highly anticipated New Album “All Is Not For All” from the U.A.E. prog metal band “Anuryzm” is set for release on June 15, 2015 via Melodic Revolution Records.
“Humanoid” is the first single to be released from “All Is Not For All,” it’s the perfect introduction to the new album combining technical guitar riffs with vacillating harmonious and powerful vocals. The track glides effortlessly through euphonious and symphonic synth and acoustic sections while at times incorporating traces of Eastern and Jazz like arrangements. “Humanoid” has been released as a Digital Single and is available via iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, Tidal, Bandcamp, Xbox Music and more.According to the band “Humanoid is a Sci-Fi epic about being watched by intelligent ETs. They recognize that humans are a flawed and doomed species. They question whether they started us off on the right path to technological awakening or whether it was a mistake to give away knowledge.”
“All Is Not For All” follows their critically acclaimed debut album “Worm’s Eye View” released in2011. The new album is an uncompromising collection of carefully calculated songs with an esoteric approach to the instrumentation, and masterful compositions on this release. “All Is Not For All” effortlessly melds elements of progressive metal with power, death, and even thrash metal to solidify their own unique sound.If you listen closely you may even hear elements and an underlying familiarity of bands that have influenced Anuryzm …….over the years, touches of Opeth, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and even Queensrÿche make for an incredibly compelling listen.
Additionally, the band have raised an army of venerable musicians from the music world to take up arms on the new album, with guest collaborations from the likes of; Michael Lepond (Symphony X), Uri Dijk (Textures & Ethereal), Charlie Zeleny (Whiplash), and interestingly, Christopher Chaplin (the youngest son of the late icon Charlie Chaplin) who plays Cello on Oceans Apart.According to the band, thematically, “The album’s songs span a variety of topics including humbleness, nanotechnology, illness, astral projection, extraterrestrial encounters, love, longing and remorse, third culture upbringing, displacement and Japanese warrior code (Bushido) to name a few.” Track Listing:

Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the release of the new studio album from good-time rock n’ rollers, TRIXTER entitled “Human Era” on June 5th in Europe and June 9th in North America.
Following on the heels of the successful comeback album, New Audio Machine – a record chock full of rocking anthems, TRIXTER are returning stronger than ever. “After the success of our last album, New Audio Machine, we felt more confident than ever in making another top notch album. I’m so proud to say that after more than 25 years of making records, TRIXTER is getting better and better. “Human Era” will show the world this band at it’s finest,” says lead guitarist Steve Brown.
From the opening notes and machine gun riffage / drumming on ‘Breaking Down‘ – it’s clear to see that KLOGR are back and better than ever. This fast paced new song simply doesn’t let up – Seemlessly combining different elements of rock/metal; ‘Breaking Down’ finds KLOGR showcasing a great track full of riffs, hooks and melodies and features stunning guitar work the likes of Tremonti, Petrucci, Gilbert and Vai would be proud of.
‘Breaking Down’ is taken from the forthcoming new Klogr release ‘Make Your Stand‘ (EP/DVD) which features 3 brand new songs plus 10 live tracks (taken from Klogr’s Trezzo show with GUANO APES) along with a full video performance of the show and unseen behind the scenes footage, documenting the band’s history to date.
Since the Blair-raped turn of the millennium, British music has seemed like it’s in a seamless, anonymous, tepid, regurgitated stream. That the music produced were bad would be something to talk about, but the rise of Tech, social networking and old fashioned politeness have coincided with music that across the board is all right, not bad, take it or leave it. Long gone are the media-created hypes of Britpop, rave, punk or Beatlemania, and all their cross-bred cousins.
IRIDIC is a progressive metal band from lead guitarist John Souki, vocalist Luke Mellinger, and guitarist Billy Schmucker. Channelling the baroque grandeur of Muse via the breathless dynamism of Dream Theater and the rhythmic technicality of Periphery, the group looks set to establish itself as a formidable force on the international stage.Bio: (Answers by John Souki) I had a passion for progressive music for as long as I can remember, looking up to bands like Yes, Dream Theater, Genesis, and King Crimson (to name a few) by way of my father introducing me to that musical world. It’s actually kinda funny because my dad felt like he “rescued” me from some of the Nu-Metal that was popular in the early 2000s, haha. I remember him sitting me through Yes’ “The Gates of Delirium” (all 20-something-minutes of it), and my life changed forever. I knew I wanted to ultimately form my own progressive band with the right people in the right headspace. My first prog band experience happened in high school when my friends and I formed a Dream Theater tribute band, which was a fun and challenging outlet while it lasted. I briefly attended Berklee College of Music after graduating high school, then began playing and touring with bands in various genres (yes, even Hip-Hop and Country, haha), but the thought of creating original progressive music was always in the back of my head. A friend of mine introduced me to Luke Mellinger a few years later and we hit it off from the start. He was the voice I had been looking for, so I hired him and we have been writing and composing together for the last couple of years.
