I'm sure you will enjoy my CD review for Spellcaster. I just have to work on the final editing process. I am very excited about the new material, as soon as you secure a bassist.
I think Pandemic have recorded a decent album, even if the project was short lived. At least you have a My Space, so folks can hear out the songs, for themselves. Andy: Yes, I would encourage people to check us out. They can gauge an idea as to where I am journeying with the future of Total Eclipse. If they so desire, they can still get the CD. MettleAngel: I appreciate you sending me a personal copy of the CD.
It is quite different, with both harsh and your soaring clean vocals. The music is thrashy, and the lyrics are awesome, and inspiring! Andy, I am so grateful that we finally had this opportunity to get to know one another. Andy: Yes, so am I brother. It has really been a blessing to speak with you, and discuss so much.
We have so much in common. We were destined to a meeting of the minds, and I really appreciate all the support you have given the band. As the new songs develop, I'll send them to you, so you can let me know your honest opinions. I assume you enjoyed the covers I sent. Andy: We will make the re-issue of Guardians worth while, with live, and perhaps studio covers. We will give them all the Midas Touch, as concerns production. MettleAngel: Considering what you did with Spellcaster, I'm sure those covers will kill!
Andy: Indeed! Michael, what a joy spending my afternoon, your early evening, having this very fortuitous conversation. You are truly a wonderful spirit. I am pleased you are recovering. Keep resting, and as spring approaches, you will greatly improve. You truly get me, and I sincerely appreciate this. MettleAngel: Yes, brother, I have truly enjoyed speaking with someone, who's academic achievements supersede my own. I admire your wisdom and humility. I also embrace your Italian romantic nature; you have a true passion for greater understanding, and a real love of life.
Andy: Thank you, and peace with you always, it has been an awesome experience! See also: review of the album Spellcaster Related links: www. With groups such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Iron Fire and a host of others leading the way, this has been the hotbed for such music. That is until Total Eclipse decided to enter the ranks from their home in San Francisco.
With more than a passing nod to the heavy metal gods, this band led by the piercing vocals of Andy Giardina and the dual guitar attack of brothers Erik and Chris Cameron manage to capture both the spirit and the classic feel of their heroes.
Total Eclipse delivers a slice of metal that will have you reaching for your Broadsword and looking for the dragon to slay! They are also not afraid to deal with spirituality in their lyrics. Leading off with a classic tale of good versus evil, "Hell On Earth" is a high energy introduction to the band and the very unique vocal style of Andy Giardina.
While trying to pinpoint a way to describe his voice, I finally decided to give up and just say that it is something that will grow on you much in the way Geddy Lee of Rush does as he uses his vocal ability to go where no one has before! It is the brothers Cameron who fuel the classic sound of Total Eclipse. Like those who have traveled this road before, they will bring you the feel of old school but with a seductive power and overwhelming collage of fiery metal riffs and solos.
Total Eclipse is not afraid to let the music flow. Many of the songs have extended instrumental sections that are very well done and fit the subject matter extremely well.
In the nine minute plus title track "Spellcaster" the brothers manage to elicit thoughts of a world where Kudalini reside or the Dragonslayer may be summoned to use his cunning. In the song "Flames Of Eternity" which is my personal favorite, the band uses a very anthem like approach that give you the feeling of a grand epic tale.
The brothers once again create a soundscape that inspires. Andy's vocals and lyrics are a mystical combination that offers you a good taste of pure fantasy escapism. While I cannot say that these guys have a totally unique sound or approach to their music, it is easy to say that what they do, they do quite well! It is also one of those discs that grow on you the more you listen to it. The main thing I hear is the potential that will make me pick up their next offering without question.
Spellcaster has set the stage for what should be a very long career. Just put this disc into the player between Maiden and Dio and you will have a mighty line-up for your listening pleasure!! Track listing: 1. Hell On Earth 2. Final Evolution 3.
Storm Warning 4. Spellcaster 5. The Flames Of Eternity 7. Although the band members are pretty young, they're, however, bold players as well as songwriters. The band is clearly influenced by the british acts from the early 80's, as the music on 'Guardians Of Metal' is purely and truely traditional heavy metal with an epic approach.
Every element that brought 80's traditional heavy metal to fame is presented on this demo CD, starting by the beautiful cover which brings a dragon flying over an ancient land. The singer, the italian Andy Giardina, delivers throughout the CD some melodic mid range vocals and sometimes succeeds on some falsetos a la King Diamond.
Axemen brothers Erik and Chris Cameron display some classy riffs, memorable duels, interesting harmonies and screaming solos. Bassist Owen Hart follows Steve Harris' school of galloping rhythms. Stick man, Ramon Ochoa, does a pretty good job and uses well his double bass, putting a good amount of energy into the music. All four tracks are killer and memorable, with plenty diversity of riffs and instrumental sections, and also some nice slight tempo changes.
Total Eclipse is a prove that traditional heavy metal is still alive in the US. And, most important, that it can still sound fresh and inspiring if done with heart and soul. A recent evening at Lucifer's Hammer where else? The appropriately Crystal Sky - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD "Guardians of Metal" launched their set, with brothers Christopher and Erik Cameron swapping guitar parts in the classic twin-lead attack style perfected by Judas Priest and Iron Maiden.
The band navigated through numerous time changes and riff variations over the course of eight frenzied minutes. The grinning C. The Dublin-based musicians made no bones about their admiration for Maiden, plowing into a spot-on version of "Two Minutes to Midnight" Crystal Sky - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD their second tune. Bassist Owen Hart planted a Converse All Star on his monitor and laid out a solid Steve Harris gallop as drummer Ramon Ochoa fell into a high-speed death march behind him.
The brothers Cameron blazed along with an accuracy doubtless borne of many a late-night solo-dissecting session on the headphones. As impressive as the young lads were technically, a metal band can only be as palatable as its lead singer. Italian exchange student Andy "Dracons" Giardina delivered air-raid-siren vocals that would have done Bruce Dickinson proud. A commanding presence when singing, he showed no discomfort slipping into the background to allow his bandmates the spotlight during their extended instrumental passages.
The lyrical content of their original songs centered on the time-honored topics of death and wizardry, but one couldn't really expect a love song over Ochoa's double-bass-drum-driven beats and Rototom fills. Even when "Storm Warning" got a wee bit too Celtic for its own good, the enthusiastic hammerheads in the audience embraced Total Eclipse as brothers in True Metal. This is totally satisfying for yours truly! Metal diehards take notice to this one! Metal Mark Metal Invader Magazine, Issue 37 November Another band from California comes from out of nowhere and takes our minds away with their music!
Epic metal of high standards that leaves no-one untouched, pushes this group to be added in that long U. Four long in duration tracks, with the guitars of the Cameron brothers reaping and the harsh vocals of Andy Giardina giving the signal, make us admire this quartet's love for original heavy metal.
Combining classical and traditional metal Iron Maiden, Judas Priest influences with a hint of thrash into what the band refers to as "Epic Metal", Total Eclipse have come up with a mostly satisfying 4 song demo here. From the clear sounds of acoustic guitar that opens up the first track "Guardians of Metal" you get the sense that this is going to be a classy ride! One that is confirmed once the heavy rhythm guitars kick in with a great riff.
At over eight minutes there's plenty of room here for extended instrumental sections, which are served compliments of guitarists Erik and Chris Cameron over a galloping rhythm which recalls vintage Maiden. A good start indeed, but it doesn't quite prepare you for the rest of the tracks which get progressively better with "Bloodbath", and absolutely killer on the seven and a half minute "Nevermore"! Vocalist Andy Giardina ,who sounds a bit restrained during the first two tracks really opens up!
There's definitely the makings of a world class metal voice here! This is a great track, which is only slightly hampered by what sounds like a few misplaced notes during an otherwise excellent guitar solo. The demo ends with another great track "Storm Warning" which boasts another killer guitar riff, along with a very memorable chorus, and which ends with the same acoustic guitar passage that started things off, only played an octave higher.
All in all Total Eclipse have recorded a very good debut demo CD, albeit slightly flawed in spots. But, when things come together which is most of the time it's incredible! This is a young band that with a bit more musical maturity could easily rise to the top of the metal world. Along with Tramontane and Electric Punishment, Total Eclipse is evidence of a new uprising of metal in the San Francisco area, one that will hopefully continue to grow and flourish.
Vocalist Andy Giardina originally from Italy has pleasing middle range and emphasizes the melodic nature in an above average manner - but I feel he could belt out some parts with more strength or energy. Website: www. Four songs of medieval epic metal with the traditional harsh sound of the eighties have surprised us and we are really anxious to Album) what else this talented group has to offer! Speedy moments are mixed with mid-tempo tunes and create an ideal recipe of authentic epic metal.
I'm totally sure that once you buy this CD, you won't stop listening to compositions like the immortal Guardians of Metal and the cult Storm Warning! So don't judge fast by saying that these guys are novices in epic metal.
This demo CD can easily prove you wrong! As there's a couple overflowing U. Postal Service bins filled with demos staring me in the face, let's cut straight to the chase and see what awaits Leading off is a NoCal throwback heavy metal quintet by the name of Total Eclipse; not only does the band moniker on loan from a vintage Iron Maiden B-side top off what sort of band this is, but so do seemingly familiar-sounding songtitles such as "Storm Warning," "Nevermore" and the title track "Guardians of Metal.
Andi Giardina's vocals are not particularly powerful, but he has a fluid enough voice, and the Italian-born frontman retains enough of an accent to give the band a strong European flavor. While the band could probably make better use of some of its seven-minute epic numbers, there's still enough going on to sit well with fans of labels such as Sentinel Steel, so fans of this ilk should write for ordering information on the four-song Guardians Of Metal CD.
Contact Total Eclipse, P. Metal Rules Rating: 3. This is an area known for turning out such metal heavyweights as Testament, Exodus and the once mighty Metallica. Total Eclipse play a melodic brand of metal combining the power of Judas Priest, the epic tendencies of Blind Guardian with a tiny dose of Bay Area thrash thrown in for good measure. The final piece to the puzzle was Andy "Dracons" Giardina who had been in various bands in Italy before moving to the U.
If you like epic power metal with progressive tendencies then Total Eclipse are a band that you should keep your eye on. The CD kicks off with an interesting classical guitar piece and which segues into the opening track aptly titled as "Guardians of Metal. This tune just rocks! Lots of cool guitar harmonies highlight this track as does the drumming of Ramon Ochoa.
The song slows down in the middle with an interesting little bridge before screaming back into the original riff. Damn cool! Track number 2 is entitled "Bloodbath" This track is a little more groovy in spots but again screams metal! Lots of great guitar work by 21 year old Chris and 19 year old Erik. Again this song has an interesting bridge and a very progressive feel.
The rhythm section of Owen Hart and Ramon Ochoa is tight on this track and lets not forget the mandatory high pitched vocals from Dracons. The disc closes out with the same classical guitar piece giving the disc a nice feeling of closure. Total Eclipse are a great indication of what's happening on the North American metal scene.
True metal is finally rearing its head after years of being subdued under the burden of the great rap explosion and bands such as Korn Chamber. With an average age of just under 23 years of age Total Eclipse have a great future ahead of them. Lets just hope there are more up and coming bands out there like Total Eclipse to hold the flame of metal high!!
If you would like to know more about this new band you can check them out on the web at www. Interviewed by Rick Maloney North America has not been known in the last few years for its metal culture. Europe has served as the breeding ground of many of the worlds best metal bands but Total Eclipse are out to change that. Total Eclipse was started in Fresno, California of all places. My brother and I started playing the guitar around?
Our original stuff sounded like early Slayer meets Iron Maiden type stuff, nothing mind blowing but it was fun. Not long after that one of our best friends named Ed, who we had know for years, started jamming with us. He was a guitar player too so me and him would switch off playing the bass. Then one day another friend of ours who had a drum set came over but he sucked, the learning curve between him and us was way too big.
So our friend Ed jumped on the drums and started playing, he was awesome! Not long after that I started calling us Total Eclipse. We never played live or released a demo but that was the original incarnation of Total Eclipse. Then in? Can you give me a quick idea of the kind of music that you create? We like to throw all of our influences together and just see what comes out.
More so on the first CD we? I think we create the kind of music that we? At least, it should be. As far as classifications, when we first met Ramon, the drummer, and gave him a tape of some of our newer songs he came back and told us they were all epics.
We wanted to call ourselves something different the just? But like everyone else we don? Erik and Chris are brothers so it is only natural that they would be in the same band but could you tell us how everyone else came to join Total Eclipse. Well, when we first arrived in SF in 98 we put an ad in the local musician? We received about 7 or 8 calls at first from a bunch of losers. Then Ramon called and it sounded like he was as serious as us, plus all the influences were definitely there, so we set up a practice at a local rehearsal studio.
We set everything up then we were like, what should we play? Ramon suggested Holy Wars by Megadeth. Once we started my brother and I just kept looking at each other, we were so blown away by how good Ramon was. It just kind of clicked, we made it through the whole song then that was it, we had a new drummer. About two months later we found an ad in a different magazine that said something like,? That was exactly what we were looking for. At the time I was singing, but we knew we eventually would have to find a?
So about four months later, after we had recorded all the music for the demo, we put an ad out for singer. We put under influences, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Queensryche, since those are three of the greatest Metal singers of all time. You would think after naming those bands we wouldn? Wrong, these guys were calling saying things like,?
Sure buddy, don? Finally Andy called, he had all the same influences and he seemed very passionate towards his music so we figured we? He came and rehearsed with us and he was awesome, the first song we played was Two Minutes to Midnight and he sounded good. We gave him a tape of the song? Guardians of Metal? I listened to it and I said,? The only three musicians we auditioned for the band are the three guys we? In these days of the? It had to be some kind of divine intervention.
Can you fill me in on the influences and backgrounds of the band members and how these come together to form the Total Eclipse sound? What other bands and CDs are you listening to right now? There are some bands that we all listened to before we started jamming together. Such as Maiden, Priest, Mercyful Fate and some of the other obvious ones. But Album) we? Ramon listens to a lot of the older thrash metal bands like, Anthrax, Forbidden, and Exodus. I knew about those bands but I never realized how good they were until Ramon let me borrow some of his albums.
Ramon actually started out by playing in thrash metal bands in SF in the early 90? My brother and I love the old 80? There are plenty of good, new guitarist these days but I don? We all listen to some of the newer European metal band like Gamma Ray, Helloween, and Rhapsody but that? I don? As far as CD? If you hung around with us for a week these are the albums you would definitely hear, probably a couple times. I know, it? Your gonna hear the influence of all these bands I? Your music cannot be classified as strictly power metal as to me it has some progressive elements.
Is that by design or is it just the bands natural sound? I really don? It just comes out how it does. A lot of people hear a lot of different thing in our music. Opinions are like assholes, what can you say? I personally wouldn? Why does this type of metal appeal to you when its not the "in" music in North America? Lots of people ask us that. Especially my brother and I because we?
I think if you could name the reason that this music appeals to you then your not a real metal fan. Whether it be music, art, or literature. There Crystal Sky - Total Eclipse (8) - Ashes Of Eden (CD just something untangable that speaks to them. I get a feeling when I listen to good heavy metal that I don?
You have a great song in the Metal Rules!! Can you describe your music to anyone who has only heard that song? How does it compare to the rest of the material on your CD? I think Storm Warning is a bit more in-your-face then the rest of the tracks on the demo. The other songs are more in the classic early 80? Storm Warning moves a lot faster then the rest of the songs and the guitar parts are definitely a little more technical.
Guardians of Metal is a great EP I was wondering if you could fill me in on why you recorded it and why it is only an EP instead of a full length release? We just wanted to put something down on tape to be able to let people hear.D.C. Cab - Various - Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - D.C.
