SCALE THE SUMMIT has cemented their position as young mavericks (the quartet boasts an average age of 22) with their blend of organic and melodic instrumental music. Already on a number of “most anticipated releases of 2009” lists, Carving Desert Canyons builds upon the band’s self-released debut, Monument, with crisper production and songwriting that has grown exponentially over the past three years.
In 2004, guitarists Chris Letchford and Travis LeVrier moved to Los Angeles to attend the Musicians Institute where they met drummer Pat Skeffington. Several months later, the band was completed with the addition of Jordan Eberhardt, While attending M.I. Chris and Travis also attended a luthier course, where the duo learned to build their own custom guitars.
“If people don’t like instrumental music, I’m here to make them like it.”
In today’s music scene where countless bands are effortlessly duplicated, Angel Vivaldi stands out as a cutting edge and unprecedented up-and-coming artist. His blend of spell-binding guitar anthems, tasteful yet virtuosic playing and engaging song arrangements have captured the ears of many who would have never given instrumental music a listen.
Angel’s debut album, “Revelations,” gained him enough notoriety to land him a spot as lead guitarist for Black Market Hero, (post-40 Below Summer/FLAW). After 2 years, he parted ways with the band to focus on his second release, “The Speed of Dark,” which was released in 2010. Now on his third release titled “Universal Language,” (May 2011) the Ibanez endorsee is focused more than ever to catapult guitar instrumental music back into the world of metal and hard rock. He recently recruited ex-Mutiny Within (Roadrunner Records) drummer Bill Fore to complete his lineup of master live musicians including Jason Tarantino and Jake Skylyr.
