Today marks the 40th birthday of the one and only Brent Hinds! Now, even though fanzines are blacklabeled to elaborate only on the sentimental, I have to point out when posting about Brent’s birthday, we’re talking about an underrated, humble, and extraordinary musician who’s so hard to find these days, especially in both Rock and Metal music scenes (well, admitting that Pop is merely an industry rather than art, and that the Avant-Jazz/Noise scenes are doing pretty much well). Brent’s huge contributions to Progressive Metal, a genre that was becoming more of a generic output for some uninspired virtuosos who lacked the ingenuity, raw spirit, and sparkle of its 70’s Rock counterpart, with his crisp channeling of Surf Rock, Psychedelia, and Grind, as well his signature hybrid picking style and uncanny vocal lines have dramatically changed the course of events.

For the final set of the series, I delved into this solo guitar workout using a tuning of D Bb D’ Eb’ Bb’ D”. The operations in each section of the piece are clearly defined and they may go down in any order though the signature descending harmonics occur between each unit. I was both tired and energized and found new realms to explore in the 50-minute set.

Melville’s masterpiece of Romanticist literature “Moby-Dick” was first published on October 18, 1851 (in UK), a work that goes beyond the boundaries of both Skepticism and Romanticism in terms of ideology and Adventure/Allegory in terms of genre, a work that was simply a stepping stone for Modernist literature as it was for even more complex schools of thought like Absurdism or Existentialism. With having influenced almost every single movement and artist, from the Southern Gothic modernist William Faulkner, the Beat Generation iconoclast Jack Kerouac, the Absurdist author Albert Camus, to the founder of Analytical Psychology and scientist, Carl Jung (who also called Moby-Dick the greatest work of American literature) and the more contemporary, post-apocalyptic Western fiction writer Cormac McCarthy, and even our all-time favorite Prog/Sludge Metallers Mastodon, it remains as you probably know as one of the two main inspirations for the name of my webzine Holy Grail From Hell as well (the other being Rhys Chatham’s “A Crimson Grail” what reminded me of Peter Sinfield’s noble synonym for Beelzebub and subsequently Hell), so let’s blast out “Leviathan” in this anniversary, of course if you wish to prevail!
