Fist-pumpers such as "The Test Continues" and "Battle Scars" alternate with extended preludes such as "Homage To Orf" and the title track, as Kollman serves notice that he is a fiery player to be reckoned with. The CD also features touches of classical and jazz in spots. Kollman is a very versatile guitarist with a powerful sound and style and he manages to strike just the right balance between chops and songwriting. Into The Unknown also includes the heavyweight rhythm section of Kevin Chown on bass and brother Tommy Kollman on drums.

Guitarist Jeff Kollman writes about the 2006 live recording, Guitar Screams Live in the liner notes, "This collection of songs is a display of the various records that I have been involved with over the last 10 years. The journey started in November of '95, leaving my hometown of Toledo, Ohio. As fate would have it, I met up with drummer Shane Gaalaas and bassist Barry Sparks to form Cosmosquad. Shane has been drumming and collaborating with me ever since on all of the various records to follow. 10 years Bro! The songs from this intimate recording of two nights in 2006 at the Baked Potato represent the last decade for me from the bands Mogg/Way, Sign Of 4, Cosmosquad, solo material, and my group JKB. I hope you enjoy it." Guitar Screams Live also features bassists Kevin Chown, Christopher Maloney and Paul Shihadeh, as well as keyboardists Ed Roth and Lao Tizer.

Los Angeles based metallic fusioneers Cosmosquad present Acid Test, a co-production with drummer Shane Gaalaas (Diesel Machine, Glenn Hughes) and guitarist Jeff Kollman (UFO, Mogg/Way, $ign Of 4, Crumb Bros.) recorded at Crumb West Studios in Simi Valley, CA between February and April, 2007. Acid Test marks the group's first studio effort since 2001's highly acclaimed "Squadrophenia". "I'm really stoked to have this new record coming out - it's been way too long!" enthuses Gaalaas. "It seems that everything came together very naturally and it was a lot of fun to collaborate with Jeff again. I think we take the listener on quite the journey throughout Acid Test - epic songs with lots of movement, heaviness, some greasiness, and an amazing ballad from Kollman that really sets him apart from other guitar players. The playing is certainly elevated a notch but we still retain the classic 'Squad vibe - the stuff that made us famous, ha ha!"

An all-instrumental set awaits fans of the galactic band, with funky outbursts giving way to dark, hypnotic grooves, spastic madness meeting ethereal beauty, and African tribal flavors intersecting with melodic flurries. If you are unfamiliar with the guitar work of Jeff Kollman, this live set is a great introduction - over 78 minutes of superb musicianship - and you'll definitely be juiced enough to get the other 9 or 10 titles in Kollman's ever expanding discography.

Another brilliant all-instrumental release from the monster trio known as Cosmosquad is entitled Squadrophenia. Retaining the multi-dimensional approach the band developed on their debut album, Cosmosquad have successfully managed to explore new musical territory and expand their sonic parameters on Squadrophenia. Displays of upbeat, funky outbursts give way to dark, hypnotic grooves, spastic madness meets ethereal beauty, and African tribal flavors intersect with melodic flurries to complete a perfectly balanced mosaic of shadow and light. Cosmosquad are that rare three-pronged constellation of stellar musicianship, unique songwriting and forward thinking attitude that allows for great musical things to happen. Squadrophenia is bound to establish the Jeff Kollman / Barry Sparks / Shane Gaalaas alliance as one of the frontrunners of the New Millennium hard fusion movement for years to come.

In October 1998, Liquid Tension Experiment reunited at Millbrook Studios in upstate New York to record their 2nd album. A few days into the sessions, John Petrucci's pregnant wife went into premature labor leaving Mike Portnoy, Jordan Rudess and Tony Levin stranded in an already set-up and booked recording studio. So like any creative and productive musicians would do, they decided to stay and JAM...and JAM they did!

Over the course of two days, they played for hours on end. The Trio consciously did not "compose" or "write" anything. They simply went wherever the music took them.

Several of these jams ended up being used on LTE2. The rest of this music has remained unreleased until now.

For some bizarre and still unexplained reason, the master tapes of these jams were misplaced during the mixing process. But, luckily, Portnoy records almost everything he ever does and as a result his live 2-track stereo DAT mixes are the only remaining traces of this historic jam.

So what you have here is as live and raw as it gets. No overdubs, no editing, no mixing. Just 3 guys, their instruments and their spontaneous imaginations feeding off of each other.

So finally - almost 10 years later - here is Mike Portnoy, Jordan Rudess and Tony Levin flying by the seat of their collective, musical pants.

Better late than never!

13. Three Minute Warning (6:31)

Over-wrought, self-indulgent, bombastic--hurl every clichéd prog-rock epithet you can think of--this group will suck 'em in and spit 'em right back in a deafening flurry of notes plucked, struck, hammered, and slapped. Without question, these guys (Dream Theater's drummer and guitarist Mike Portnoy and John Petrucci respectively, keyboardist Jordan Rudess, and bassist Tony Levin) are masters. And they make no apologies for having recorded an album of intensely virtuosic instrumental hard rock. Armed with chops, taste, and panache, LTE groove seamlessly from the lightning-fingered metalfest "Paradigm Shift" to the comical drum & bass duet "Chris and Kevin's Excellent Adventure"; from the full-throttle jamming on "Universal Mind" to the house-crushing mayhem of "Three Minute Warning." Throughout, the staggering speed and technique of both Portnoy and Petrucci consistently grab center stage. It's a riveting work from start to finish and a scorching testament to the power of musical inspiration and collaboration. --Michael Mikesell

Shattering glass. Screaming occupants. Twisted metal. Overall chaotic mayhem. Is it a high-speed car crash, or is it Orange? You be the judge. This CD from guitarist Joboj, whose first CD, "Anvilhead" (under the name Joe Bochar) covered the entire hard rock musical map, goes one step beyond, pulling the listener into an extreme guitaristic world. Throughout each of the 13 tracks onOrange, Joboj squeezes a different drop of flavor from his guitar, filling up this CD with 73 minutes of taste, melody, mood, and chops, not to mention his usual dose of guitar chaos and offbeat style. Orange -- chock full o' Vitamin "G" goodness in every earful.

Size: 17 Mb (mp3 file + pdf booklet)

It’s not uncommon for a musician to record more work than they release. In my case I have a digital ocean of snippets in various degrees of completion. Some are leftovers from assorted project recording sessions, projects that were never completed, sound check jams, demo snippets, etc.

There are enough lonely unreleased notes in my world to fill an “infinity shelf.” VaiTunes are tracks that are culled from this melodic abyss, brushed off, sometimes severely hosed down, and released as digital singles.

These tracks may be specific to a particular project that has never had the chance to be a completed big picture, but now, with the advent of all this digital technology and distribution, it’s possible to release a variety of tracks from a potential project without having to complete the whole project itself. Eventually, if there is enough tracks completed that fall into a precise endeavor, perhaps they will be compiled and released as a cohesive CD. In any event, it’s a good way to release a constant stream of music.

Although the plan is to continue to create whole, full-bodied CD releases,VaiTunes can serve as temporary pacifiers for some delectable melodies to be sucked through the ears and absorbed into the soul.
