REIGN OF TERROR/HOLY HELL guitarist Joe Stump has issued the following update:
"First off, I'm very excited because I'm going to appear on a record with the famed London Philharmonic Orchestra. Magic Maestro Music is a company that produces books/CDs for children and adults. The book/CD package is a story based from a famous work of music. The orchestral pieces are performed by the London Philharmonic. On each disc they feature a track with a work from the classical piece done in a non-traditional classical format. I've recorded a speed metal neo-classical version of Tchaikovsky's 'Enchanted Lake' from 'Swan Lake'. It was a great experience and the track came out killer. I've also finished my fifth instructional DVD entitled 'Advanced Hard Rock/Metal Soloing Techniques'. This one will be a two-disc set and will be released by the Shred Academy in late November. I also recorded additional footage for the re-release of the 'Sweep Picking/Arpeggio' DVD. That will also be a two-disc set available through the Shred Academy in several weeks.
"As you've seen in the last update, my entire instrumental back catalogue has been released through Magic Circle Music. It's only available in digital format for now, but they'll be re-releasing cool remastered products with many extras and bonus materials next year.
"I'm back at work on the follow up to 'Speed Metal Messiah' that will be released in the early portion of next year."
