Greetings, fellow spankers of the plank!

I've been naughty and made more noise again...... it's an album called PANTHEON. I put out the first track from it the other day, a track called Gott Mit Uns. It's an historical phrase used by the German military for decades around the turn of the 20th Century



Some time ago I had another member join the family. Phobos - my Ibanez RG8. Here he is seen with his brother Deimos, who you may remember I called Spartan until I decided a re-naming was appropriate to fit with his sibling. Gott Mit Uns was the first thing I recorded after Phobos arrived.

For those who like a bit of geekery, you may recognise the names as the moons of Mars. They're named after the mythological sons of Ares, the Greek god of war. Like all of the planets expect for Uranus, (or Uranos) we use the names of the Roman counterparts to the Greek deities, however Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Dread)) retain their Green names.

The album's out now if any of you are interested.... and yes, that's a 9 minute song right at the end cool.gif

I would post this in theory but there's greater chance of it being seen here.......

Anyhow, turns out that both the Dorian and Phrygian modes in their original Greek derived incarnations are exactly the opposite to their modern incarnations

Just to make things confusing, eh?

If you like slow, lumbering riffs and lots of wind then this track is for you. My latest with my usual partners in crime, Andrea & Martino - the Italian Stallions (I presume) rolleyes.gif
