Jeff Demarco On vocals (Solium Fatalis)

Nick Scarfo Guitar (The Hours End)

Joey Conception Guitar (Absence, Armageddon)

Jim Gregory (Solium Fatalis) and Charles Ayala (owner of the Wreck Room) on lyrical content

This is the solo project by guitarist RHK. This is also his debut E.P. as a solo artist. He has amazing talent that has has graced listeners ears over the years whether it was in Mortis Deveia, Alterius, or simply demonstrating or reviewing guitar amps, pedals and others on his YouTube chanel. He is an endorsed artist by Airis Effects, Xvive, and is the founder/owner of RHK studios. He has shared the stage with many bands and notable musicians like Within The Ruins, Shadows Fall,  Misery Index, Lord Dying, The Human Abstract, Die Cast, God forbid, Arsis, 1349 and even when Angel Vivaldi did his first mini tour as a solo artist. Since the last time we heard him on a recording was with Alterius from their E.P. “Voyager” it has been a pleasure to hear his music again only a few short years later with a solid E.P. as this one is. With guest musicians like Ryan Knight, Dmitri Demyanenko, Jim Gregory, and Alterius band mate Nick Scarfo. The first track is “Industrial Demise” a heavy track with plenty of Djent feel, and is a killer song with copious amounts of shred. The guitar work between RHK and R. Knight is an impressive instrumental track. It has so much flavor in that track right away. This E.P. is saturated with talent right from the beginning. The following song veers towards a slightly darker blend of metal. Not exactly what you were expecting after that first track. The title track features vocals by Jeff Demarco from Solium Fatalis giving the music a darker and more abrasive edge to it. It helps to hear Rithiya’s guitar skills against vocals of a different style than his other bands/ projects. It also allows people who may have not heard Alterius or Mortis Deveia to grasp the talent,  that he can play to different styles and still end up sounding great. Maelstrom of War follows up the title track quite nicely. But the track that has gotten the most play from me has been Voyager II which is the follow up to Alterius’ E.P. with the title track.  while that one had vocals this one is an instrumental track. it certainly shows how far Rithiya has gone with his guitar abilities. This track also features Alterius band mate Nick Scarfo and  the two of them pull of an amazing job with this track. right at the :39 second mark you experience one of the most infectious riffs of the year. They just build and build on this song, it is bursting at the seams with talent. Because this is a five track E.P. I don’t want to give up too many details, but its worth mentioning that Rithiya has immense talent when it comes to music, the guests he landed on this E.P. are also very much impressive. This E.P. is killer and you need to check it out. 8/10 \m/

Sepultura, and Arsis at the Jewel night club in Manchester, NH?!?

So I just stumbled upon this gem of information. At the Jewel nightclub
( 61 Canal Street ) in Manchester May 31st will be Arsis and Sepultura. Arsis, who actually started out as a two man band and blew everyone who discovered them then ( myself included) away, will be playing with Sepultura. Now for fans of all ages reading this anyone can argue when Sepultura was the best line up  and when, for what album so on and so forth. Many of you may not have ever even seen them live. Here’s you chance to see them live. Now me personally I am a Max Cavalera fan, doesnt mean that Derrick Green is not good. he handles vox  right for them. I am also an Igor Cavalera fan however Elow Casagrande is a pretty good drummer. Maybe I am showing my age a bit, but I would still see Sepultura if given the chance. Arsis if you are unfamiliar had played this song on their debut album ” a celebration of guilt” https://youtu.be/Adb91VCZMQc  which they also re-recorded for a later album.  They also do not shy away from doing the occasional cover as you can see here they did Corey Harts hit Sunglasses at night; https://youtu.be/NeRZ7fqUp9g

So if you are a fan of either band, you are local to Manchester, NH or  really local to NH then May 31st, 2015 make it to the Jewel nightclub for your chance to see these bands in action.
