Wolfmother – Joker and The Thief | FULL COVER

 Hey everyone! We’ve managed to make our way through another week, so it’s time to rip through another tune! This time we’re ripping through the song Joker and The Thief, by that awesome band Wolfmother! Well, let’s be honest, Wolfmother is just Andrew Stockdale and friends. They’ve been on my radar since 2009 and their release Cosmic Egg, and they just satisfy a certain area of the brain. The tones are so freaking heavy,… Continue reading

Justin Strode – A Sky Eternal | GUITAR PLAYTHROUGH

 Hey everyone! I’m still a little sore from the Death To All concert last week, so we’re keeping things a little simpler this week. The show was bloody awesome, full of amazing people moshing and paying tribute to Chuck in the best of ways. Being able to gather in such a way to pay respects to an amazing musician who had passed so long ago, well before many of us had even discovered him,… Continue reading

Tool – The Grudge | GUITAR and BASS COVER

Hey everyone! We’re hanging out at Okzygen on the start of another excellent weekend, and I had a bit of a craving for some Tool. It’s also been a bit since I’ve done something on the bass, so we’re gonna be pulling double duty with both guitar and bass parts. Today we’re ripping through The Grudge, the opening track from their album Lateralus. For many reasons I can’t do the drum parts in the studio… Continue reading

Nine Inch Nails – The Becoming | FULL COVER

Hey everyone! We’re a little late getting this video out this week, but this one needed a little extra work to really make it something. See, this weekend is the 30th anniversary of one of my favourite albums of all time, The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails. This one has played a large role in my life, and I wanted to celebrate it a bit by doing a full cover of The Becoming! Now… Continue reading

Steve Vai – Building The Church | GUITAR COVER

Hey everyone! It’s been a busy few weeks working on the RPM project, but I thought it would be a good idea to take a bit of a break from that stuff while also putting the chops to the test. So for today’s cover we’ve got a song that I’ve been trying to learn for quite literally years. Coming from the wonderful mind of Steve Vai, we’re ripping through Building The Church! I’m not joking… Continue reading

Justin Strode – Sky Charmer | GUITAR PLAYTHROUGH

Hey everyone! We’re kicking it at Okzygen as always, in the midst of this years RPM Project. It’s still a bit early to tell how things are going, but songs are getting written, ideas are getting trashed, strings be vibrating (possibly in more dimensions than we can comprehend), and at the very least, noise is being created. Even though we’re elbow deep in the creation of this weird, thing, we can’t just not have a… Continue reading

Palanavra – Record Production Month 2024

Hey everyone! After a brief hibernation to recharge the batteries, we’re coming back swinging with new videos on the YouTube channel starting tomorrow. And I’m bringing something else to the fold to help start out the new year. I know it’s been a few years since we’ve done this, but I’ve decided it’s time to give it another go. That’s right, we’re doing the Record Production Month challenge again! Last time I tried this was… Continue reading

Primus – Too Many Puppies | BASS COVER

Hey everyone! It’s once again the end of the week so we’ve put together another video to usher in the weekend, this time a little number by Primus called Too Many Puppies. And this one’s a bit of a milestone, as it marks the 40th video I’ve put out this year alone! Not too shabby if I say so myself, considering before I rebooted the channel I was lucky to push out say, 5 videos… Continue reading

Justin Strode – House on the Horizon | GUITAR, BASS, and SYNTH

Hey everyone! We’re once again back at Okzygen studios working on some stuff. This time around we’re revisiting an older tune of mine from 12 years back, a little tune called House On The Horizon. The first version was a rather laid back, stripped composition with only a couple of clean guitars and a basic drum beat. It was a rather relaxing, melancholic song back then, and was actually one of my most played ones… Continue reading

Rush – YYZ | GUITAR COVER

Hey there you wonderful people, we’re back in the studio whipping up another cover today! And this time we’re taking on a tune from a classic Canadian band, Rush. That’s right, we’re doing up a cover of YYZ! Seems like this was inevitable in a way, being a fellow Canadian doing the metally, proggy stuff that I do here. Now believe it or not, it wasn’t actually the titular band that got me in the… Continue reading
