Kill By Inches – Underdog

Underdog was a Kill By Inches crowd fave which survived a few vocalist changes. We recorded a few versions of it, but this was the only one that was released on a demo CD. Featuring Kevin Oriol on bass, Steve on drums and Alex (me) on guitar this version was recorded at Electric Plant Studios ... Read More

Kill By Inches – Desecrate The Flesh (with Jeff Blanchard)

Ink was the topic of a few KBI tracks, and Desecrate The Flesh is probably the first one that comes to mind. Many versions were recorded, with different vocalists and guitarists. This one was recorded on January 12, 1998 at Electric Plant Studios with Jeff Blanchard (check out his new band: Eyes Of The Sun) ... Read More

Kill By Inches – E.F.S. (Instrumental)

Another instrumental KBI jam from the 1998 session at Electric Plant Studios. Once again, Kevin Oriol is rocking the bass, Steve beating the crap out of his drums and I’m on guitar. E.F.S. (Everything Fucking Sucks) was one of my all time KBI faves. Steve wrote the lyrics but then lost them so it always ... Read More

Kill By Inches – Animal Farm (Instrumental)

KBI at Electric Plant Studios. January 12, 1998. (Holy shit that’s long ago.) Kev on bass, Steve on drums, me on guitar. Party like its 1998. If I remember correctly, Animal Farm was always an instrumental so what you’re hearing is the real deal. (I think Kev might have had words at some point but ... Read More

Assignment 9.2 (Jazz Guitar)

I apologize for the lack of updates in recent weeks. Work has been out of control and lots of things are happening on the side as well. But I expect to back on track very soon. In the meantime, here’s a relaxing jam which was recorded during my Jazz course at Berklee, taught by the ... Read More

We’re going all the way back to 1997, to Electric Plant Studios somewhere deep in Brooklyn for a live Kill By Inches session with Shane and Tommy on vocals. Joining the two were Kevin Oriol on bass, Steve Papa on drums and Alex Kolundzija on guitar, with Vin Cin producing the mix. Stylin’ was a unique ... Read More

Michael Hedges – Point B (Montaz remix)

Michael Hedges died on December 2nd,12 years ago. I only learned this recently and was completely unaware at the time I did this remix of Point B, Michael’s track released on his album Taproot in 1990. Like many of Michael’s works, Point B (as well as Point A) are solo guitar pieces performed using a ... Read More

Exclusive: Sovereignty – Evil Mind

We’re going waaaaaay back to 1993 (if my memory serves me right) for a track by the Bronx based band Sovereignty named Evil Mind.  Formed by the guitarist/vocalist Derek Torres, Sovereignty was a speed/trash metal band influenced by the sounds of Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, and others.  Joining Derek was Eddie Moore on ...

Exclusive: Kill By Inches – D.N.A. (Down To 3hree Bonus Track!)

Kill By Inches released Down To 3hree exactly 10 years ago, and while the disc is available on Amazon, iTunes and elsewhere, the song D.N.A. recorded for this release never made it to the disc.  I have to admit that listening to it now I’m not exactly sure why we left it off since it ... Read More

Decade Of Dissonance

Decade Of Dissonance started out as a remix of Michael Jackson’s Thriller.  That idea was quickly dropped and the track took a direction of its own.  However, things kept getting in the way and it would take more than a year before it was done.  Its another relatively long track and it takes a bit ...
