Rodrigo Y Gabriela
Ex-thrash metal bandmates turned itinerant musicians, Mexican musicians Rodrigo and Gabriela met in Mexico in the band Terra Acida. Not much later, they gave up their electric guitars, wandered through Europe and settled in Dublin. Inspired by flamenco's technical virtuosity, the duo began playing a fiery (if less mournful) version of flamenco that brings bands like Led Zeppelin and Metallica into the musical fold. The group polished their chops busking in Dublin's Grafton Street and, after gaining a devoted following there, they started seducing audiences outside Ireland. Their first album Foc was named for the Catalan word for fire (perhaps with some double entendres attached). In 2006, they teamed with producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead) to record their self-titled international debut.

The Final Tour
Runtime: 2 hr 17 minAfter almost a year of songwriting, arranging, pre-production, recording, mixing and mastering, Angra's fifth full length studio album is finally ready. Temple Of Shadows is definitely the bands most mature, creative and daring effort to date. It's a refreshing record, even though the group has not given up embracing the melodic metal that has always been its trademark.
Temple Of Shadows is a concept album. Its story was created by guitarist Rafael Bittencourt and tells the saga of The Shadow Hunter, an 11th century crusader soldier who questions the Catholic Church ideals. The series of events since his first questioning to the way it affects his whole life is narrated along 13 tracks that show the band in its prime form. Several heavy metal genres and sub-genres are portrayed in the album, masterly crafted by the talents of Edu Falaschi (vocals), Kiko Loureiro (guitars), Rafael Bittencourt (guitars), Felipe Andreoli (bass) and Aquiles Priester (drums).

Live At Montreux 1986/1993
Al di Meola
Runtime: 46 minAl Di Meola was one of the dominant figures in jazz rock fusion in the seventies and eighties, first with Return To Forever, which also featured Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke, and later as a solo artist. His albums have dominated the US jazz charts and he has frequently earned top honors in Guitar Player magazine’s polls. From the late 1980s onwards he has moved away from jazz fusion to concentrate primarily on acoustic guitar, with an increasing Latin influence. This concert by him at Montreux Jazz Festival 1986 is a solo performance. For 45 minutes long Al Di Meola manages to keep the attention of the audience, not only with a good sense of humor but certainly also with a great variety of style and dynamics. Especially for guitarists this concert is a pleasure to watch, since it contains many close-up shots of Al Di Meola showing his amazing technique.
