Concerto Delle Pinze Lupo
Concerto delle Pinze Lupo is a must have for every one who loves both metal and classical music! Concerto delle Pinze Lupo was recorded through 2009 and the first couple of months of 2010 with a variety of amps, mics and Bo-el guitars. Some tracks were one day projects, which I recorded just for fun. Here are the songs, with some explainations: Greased Blues and Greens (Wolvetang) I wrote and recorded this song on one day, to go with a video I made about the production of a Bo-El guitar. It turned out so well that it fits perfectly on this album. Days of Persistance (Wolvetang) The slowest and saddest song of the album. I wrote this one after one of my granddads died. May he rest in peace Fairness from Hell (Wolvetang) The Hell Law says that Hell is reserved exclusively for those who believe in it. Furthermore, the lowest Rung in Hell is reserved for those who believe in it on the supposition that they'll go there if they don't. I guess that's fairness from Hell. However, the concept of limits from calculus reveals that Hell is indeed quite fair. Some goes for the number of notes in this song, what's 10.000 to infinity? Bhairav (Wolvetang) Named after the Raga Bhairavi, this song is mainly in the scale that can be associated with the Raga. Lots of fretless guitar in this track! Le Nozze di Figaro (W.A. Mozart, arranged by Wolvetang) (KV492) Probably my favorite piece by Mozart. This piece took me the longest to record, since it needed over 30 guitars. The whole project of arranging, recording and mixing this classical masterpiece completely filled up a one week holiday. For me it was worth the effort though! Neonlight Sonata (L. Beethoven, arranged by Wolvetang) Most commenly called Mondscheinsonate (moonshine Sonata), I dubbed it the Neonlight sonata. Why? The conventional version is about 5 to 6 minutes long, this hyperspeed version is less than 2 minutes. Even thought it's played three times as fast as it's probably meant to be, it still sounds fantastic! Prelude delle Pinze Lupo (Wolvetang) I wrote this song during my first year of musicology after I had some elementary lessons about harmony and counterpoint. I think it turned out quite well. Physical Dreams (Wolvetang) Maybe the hardest track for me to write and play: no virtuoso guitar playing. For the Queen (Wolvetang) I wrote this song after the horrible events in Apeldoorn (Netherlands) on Queensday 2009. Hearing from some of the victims that this song has helped them to deal with everything really meant a lot to me. Easy Does It (Wolvetang) Need I say more? Winter (A. Vivaldi) The coldest of Vivaldi's four seasons... Amazing composition though! Die Zauberflote (W.A. Mozart, arranged by Wolvetang) This is one of my favorite pieces by Mozart. I love his playfull style, which you can hear quit well in this piece. The New Chromatics (Wolvetang) This song was another of those one-day projects. I had an idea about writing a song around a chromatic two hand tapping lick (the one you in the intro). Since the lick was very chromatic I decided to have ONLY chromatics intervals in this song, either in the lead or in the chords, there's always a chromatic interval there. There's a lot of fretless guitar in this song too, can you figure out where??
