Metallica - Mexico City Live CD/DVD Details

Official press release

In June of this year we were fortunate enough to return to Mexico City for three sold out shows at Foro Sol Stadium and with 155,000 of you there over the three nights, we knew it would be extra special. So we asked our friend Wayne Isham to join us with a film crew and the results of that crazy, magical, most memorable long weekend will be available on DVD and CD starting November 30 as Orgullo, Pasion y Gloria: Tres Noches En La Ciudad de Mexico (Pride, Passion, and Glory: Three Nights in Mexico City).

The region free DVD's and CD's include songs from all three shows recorded on June 4, 6, and 7. Each show had a unique set list, totaling 34 different songs... they're all there on the two DVD set along with interviews with us. Other versions that will be available include one DVD (18 tracks), Blu-ray version of that DVD, a digi-pack with the DVD and two CD's, and finally the aforementioned deluxe version in a slip case with two DVD's and two CD's. Tracklistings for each configuration can be seen here. In keeping with the local theme, all the credits will be in Spanish (Portuguese for our Brazilian buddies) and will only be available at stores in Latin America. Of course we will also have it in The Official Metallica.com Store, starting sometime the week of December 7.

Most areas of Latin America will have the DVD available on November 30, however if you live in Brazil, check your local music store on December 8 and for fans in Argentina and Chile, Orgullo, Pasion y Gloria: Tres Noches En La Ciudad de Mexico hits the stores on December 10. All DVD's are region free and will play on any player worldwide.

Jason Becker - New Album Out

Shrapnel Records press release

"Gripping virtuoso guitar licks and a glimpse at history as it was being made accurately summarize Jason Becker's new album, "Collection". Even as paralysis set in from his disease, Jason still had a strong desire to compose ."Collection" not only contains some of Jason's favorite moments from his Shrapnel and David Lee Roth recordings, it also features three new Becker compositions, each as impressive as anything he has recorded in the past. Jason has enlisted some of the largest names in instrumental guitar music and has as many as three guitarists per track trading off riveting performances. Including performances by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Michael Lee Firkins, Marty Friedman and Greg Howe. "Collection" is exactly the kind of record that Becker fans have been waiting for."

Jason Becker himself states in his official blog: "There is some bonus material when you stick it in your computer, so the total music time adds up to about an hour and a half. I hope you all dig it. Listen to it loud, or else it sucks."

"Collection" tracklisting:

01. Rain
02. River of Longing
03. Images
04. Opus Pocus
05. Higher
06. It's Showtime
07. Altitudes
08. End of the Beginning
09. River of Longing (Reprise)
10. Meet Me In the Morning
11. Air
12. Electric Prayer for Peace
13. Mandy's Throbbing Little Heart

Bonus material:

01. Go Off (intro)
02. End Of The Beginning
03. Noodling For Rob And Tony

Taken from Blabbermouth

Jason Becker began his career as a Shrapnel recording artist by joining forces with guitar virtuoso Marty Friedman to form seminal progressive metal pioneers Cacophony. Amassing worldwide acclaim as a guitar virtuoso, Becker came to the attention of David Lee Roth who was looking for a guitarist to replace Steve Vai and the rest is history.

Through his work with Cacophony, his groundbreaking solo record "Perpetual Burn", recorded when Jason was just 17, and through his second solo record "Perspective", recorded after Becker came down with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's Disease). Jason earned an international reputation for being one of the best composer/guitarists to emerge from the legendary Shrapnel shredding scene.

Even as paralysis set in from his disease, Becker still had a strong desire to compose and "Collection" not only contains some of Becker's favorite moments from his Shrapnel and David Lee Roth recordings, it also features three new Becker compositions, each as impressive as anything he has recorded in the past. Becker has enlisted some of the largest names in instrumental guitar music to perform the parts that he hears in his head and has as many as three guitarists per track trading off riveting performances.
