In case you’ve been in an internet-less society for the past 7 months you will probably be aware that two heavyweights of the Metal guitar scene, Jeff Loomis and Keith Merrow have joined forces and launched a very successful IndieGoGo campaign (they raised 235% of their target!) back in July 2013 to write and record a new album together called Conquering Dystopia. The release date happens to be on my birthday, March 10th, which is a nice present and I assume that isn’t a coincidence? Wishful thinking? Anyway I helped fund this album so I’m very much looking forward to my DVD and digital download, especially now that I have heard the above teaser!
