Before anything, I wanted to make a quick research on what “hinayana” meant. First of all, it’s taken from Buddhism, in which it means “small vehicle”, and here’s a small quote about it, taken straight from Wikipedia:

English Prog rock band Frost* has just re-released their debut album Milliontown on bandcamp with a few bonuses! If you’ve never checked this album out I highly suggest you grab it! Or at least listen to it first. This is a unique band that combines a high production pop sound with some awesome prog compositions. The band is currently working on their third album, and after that will be releasing a “big ol’ remixed, tweaked and remastered physical version” of Milliontown. Both of which I can’t wait for!
Check out their official website here and give them … Read more
A while back I featured the metal band ATOMIS, but I just came to find out they have an Indiegogo campaign going to help fund their debut album!
There are only 6 days left in the campaign, so you better act fast if you want to get some of the exclusive rewards, such as t-shirts, posters & paintings (which won’t be reprinted!).

Today Dream Theater have announced that their new self-titled twelfth studio album will be released on September 24th!
I’m totally psyched for this album as A Dramatic Turn of Events was definitely one of the better Dream Theater albums in recent years, and with Mike Mangini being present for the entirety of the new album’s sessions, It’s likely that this one will be even better!
Now I know Dream Theater aren’t considered “unknown” or “underground” at this point, but when I discovered them, they were really only starting to gain the following they have today. They also helped introduce me … Read more
FamilyJules7x released a new guitar cover today for the Final Fantasy Prelude and Prologue themes, and it is EPIC! This is Jules’ third year of covering video game tunes on guitar, and this song really showcases his talent. The Prelude theme is one of my favorite Final Fantasy themes, and I’m really impressed with how Jules handled the arpeggios at the beginning. Sure it’s not perfect but it’s impressive nonetheless! Check it out below.
