This thursday night I am pleased to interview Guitar Shredder, Xander Demos on the Show. My Senoir Music Editor, Jeff Tolwinski has come up with a great idea for this weeks show. Instead of a CD review we will each pick what we conisder the most influentioal, groundbreaking Metal Album of the 80's. The specific albums wont be known until Jeff's segment. We will debate the issue and would love for all of you to join in on the conversation.
Well unfortunately with the World Seies over and Met fans disappointed with the outcome, I asked Roy Jones to come to breakdown the series and start our look at what the Mets may look like next year.
Finally, The Raiders big win this past week over the Jets has our Raider correspondent jumping for joy. Fresh off his vacation Dom Guinta is too pumped to get on the air and shout about how good his team is.

I am what I like to think of as a "tasty shredder". I like to mix up scary licks with intense melodies and I am a sucker for a great hook. I am endorsed by Suhr Guitars, McNaught Guitars, V-Picks, EMG Pickups, GraphTech, Jim Dunlop, Hughes and Kettner, Scott Dixon Cases and recently I have been added to the Bogner family as well. I play in two bands and just released an EP called "Road To Guitarcadia". My full-length CD simply called "Guitarcadia" will be out sometime in 2012.
Fist Of Rage:
Compared to bands such as Three Days Grace, Alice in Chains, and Black Label Society, Fist of Rage was founded by guitarist/songwriter Vernon "V" Hicks and bass player, Bryan "Pudge" Daniel. Quickly becoming a local favorite, they released their first album entitled "Womb of Hypocracy" in 2008. By 2011, Fist of Rage became a driving force in the regional music scene and released their sophmore album entitled "Fear". Shortly after its release the voice of Fist of Rage took a change with a new lead vocalist, Andy Chapman. His vocals added a gritty but soulful element to the powerful riffs of Fist of Rage. This propelled F.O.R. on to headlining spots in the regional music scene including one of the biggest outdoor music festivals, ROCKLAHOMA.
Based in Pittsburgh, Xander Demos is a rock and metal guitarist, who has performed and recorded with James Rivera (Helstar, Malice), Sabbath Judas Sabbath, Liberty N’ Justice, Ged Rylands’ Rage Of Angels, Modern Superstar, and others. His debut album, Guitarcadia was mixed by CJ Snare of Firehouse, and it received mass critical praise. Xander will release his follow up, Runways and Waterways in 2015. Xander is featured on the Guitar Wizards Vol. 3 and 4 compilation, alongside members of KISS, Poison, Dio, Whitesnake, and more. He will appear in the 2015 metal movie release, “Hair I Go Again,” featuring members of Motley Crue, RATT, Quiet Riot, Anthrax, Warrant, Stryper and many others. Xander recently opened for Guitar Gods, Tony MacAlpine and Richie Kotzen, and performed at NAMM Metal Jam. He is endorsed with Suhr, McNaught (makers of the XD Signature Guitar Models), Conklin and Brian Moore Guitars.
As you can see we have a great show for you! So don't miss out.
