@ Marcus' part - your spacy licks are absolute killer and your ending shred so dramatic. Also, the way you twist a simple melody with your vibrato and bending is beyond cool - thanks for the inspiration!
Great job on this guys, I LOVE IT!
Awesome Marcus and Kris! Congratulations
Awsome guys, great job on everything from start to end its a real pleaser.
Thanks guys! And thanks Kris for learning me those tricks to get the "tremolo vibrating" (you explain it very well in part 1). That was new techniques for me, and I find them really useful!
Amazing:0 Simply amazing!
Woot, nice stack you got there Kris!! Good song
don't know what to say..it just give me the creeps...
Some brilliant and tasty solos here
I'll be honest guys, This could be some of the most tasteful soloing I have ever heard, So full of emotion, The phrasing is perfect, just simply beautiful!!
Just incredible.. this is better than about 80% of guitar instrumentals I ever heard! I was waiting for this lesson and defintly gonna be learning it NOW
Awesome guys, just awesome, so Epic and tasty, great solos, great backing, amazing!
great, it just makes me more determined to get that ,i wondered why we hadnt heard from Marcus for a while ,now I know ,fantastic congrats to you both
YES it was worth the wait!
Amazing into and lesson,speechless!
Thanks a lot guys!!
also congrats on taking the total number of videos on GMC to over 5000
Awesome I love this song.
The intro is great. I like how the video goes along with this song in the intro section. Is there a spcific message that you want to tell us? I know you do and i sort of know it but it is not clear to me
I love it !!!
Killer solo and great to see you shredding again Kris and Mr. Nice Yngwie Version Marcus
Gonna learn this song this holiday
Amazing! This song blows my mind! I'm so happy you made a lesson if it. It will make me a better player to practice and learn! Great!!
Nice song,What a melody
Thanks for the fantastic comments - it's so rewarding to hear this from you guys!!
SnesE - the message in my playing is probably the feelings and sensations life gives me. (That's why I am careful not to record when being hungry! )
PS It's an honour to break the 5000 limit.
Just awesome guys. I cant get enough or marcus' phrasing.. give me a CD
I love the epic beginning of you two writing the song. I love KMC Metal. I hope it never stops!
Wonderful lesson guys!
I love the explanaions in there!

I'll make one up.
Yeah that pretty much covers it.
^^ thanks Ayen - we should add that one to the GMC Wiki!!
Awesome lesson guys!!! Just the type of soloing i like, Great job!
This is so inspirational! great work guys, just love the way you make it seem so easy to play this is hard and wonderful stuff! Keep on writing things together guys!
Nice work guys =)

Thanks for it...
Outstanding!! Awesome!! Cool!!
This is beautiful Kris and Marcus!! Everytime that I hear something of you I want the cd more! You have to record all this great stuff in an album.
Keep this stuff coming!
That's cool beyond words, amazing job guys!!
VeRy Tasty indeed! Great inspiration!
Awesome, simply awesome
Counted 61 doing this lesson at this time, Marcus S. had 64 once when I counted. Highest counts I have seen. After several views, I find Marcus L's linear lines (and the tapping on the held vibrato at end) interesting, and the way Kris blends sweeps with AP, so the sweeps are more integrated in the play, don't stand out as "in your face" sweeps. Which is not bad.
Remember us when you guys go and tour all over the world. This is sick!!!!!!!
Wonderful job guys
Marcus, when you show what you're playing from above on video 5, it's cool how you swivel the chair so the camera can see your fingers when you get to the lower frets.
Thanks so much!!
Your awesome support will make us work harder than ever to keep delivering - thanks again!
omg.... straight genious... where can i download this?
OMG this is truly amazing ! I'm speechless ..These solos are so beautiful...So much emotions...And all that in a great lesson to learn!! Great job Kris n Marcus!
Again, thanks all for you comments!
As Kris said, your great support will make us work harder and come up with more songs

Wow Udo - you are way too kind...!
Thanks again everyobody for the awesome and encouraging comments..!
I think this is the best KMC Metal song yet. Keep it coming guys!
Wow! Kris, Marcus, I've been hearing this amazing tune a couple of times now, and it blows my mind everytime! The 25th of april will be GMC history from now on, as this is one of the best - if not the best - tune to reach the screen so far. 25th of april - Nocturnal Vision day, add that to the wiki
Awesome! This is great! We want more of this kind!
You know in Norway, the first a kid learns, is that Swedish people is stupid:P Well, i wanna show this to all to prove theyre not!
Wow... what a fantastic piece. Everything is so in context with everything else. The guitars sound perfect. I don't think I have ever been more envious of a Strat sound. Fantastic job guys. Really, fantastic.
In fact, if you fancy covering how you achived that sound with your Strat, I would be most appreciative.
great work marcus and kriss beautifull
YOU CAN TELL ME WICH AMPLI YOU PLAY FOR THIS AND THE SETTINGS
Thank you all!
@ Darfuria & EGMONT 1963
Both me and Kris use a PODxt in this lesson. I'll upload the presets in the forum a.s.a.p.
Marcus, why are you always switching your pickup if you play faster things ?
It's because I get a different tone when using the neck pickup, which I like better for certain licks (or notes).
Seeing this on video made it even better. Just awesome how you both switch your soloing. Simply amazing. You are THE metal soloing Dream Team.
The lesson is great but i will have to wait about 5 years to be able to play such stuff
But continue to make lessons on your songs, thats something unique in the WWW.
You can download our PODxt presets here
wow man! what can i say.... really really good!
awesome stuff kris and marcus, its when you see and hear stuff like this it makes you proud to be part of such a great community full of talent and inspiration!! Thank you!
Thanks for your kind words Sentenced, Lian and iain
Wow, this is simply amazing. I'm addicted.
This song is full of great licks and phrasing, it's really intense.
this song is fantastic guys- Marcus and Kris: great playing!!!
You've made a fantatsic lesson out of it too, thanks!
Very very very good i have subscritt today classmaster and i enjoy very mhouc it i like particurally this blues i only sorry why my englisch is not good and dont understant wery weel when theacer speak...ok bye from Italy and thanks you
Thanks spettro, and welcome to GMC. Let us know if you have any questions
Also thank you to DeepRoots and Retribution for your kind words
hi marcus i thought winding roads was fantastic but this is even better i dont know how you do it hope you and kris make even more of these types of collaborations
Thats so amazing... I cant say more..
So much feeling..
Make more of those songs and give an conzert in sweeden.
You dont believe how many fans you have.
I wait for a cd.
Sorry for posting three times, but I just cannot stress enough how awesome this is. I've listened to it, over and over, but it never gets old or boring. Kris, Marcus, you two work so perfectly together. This is truly a magnificent work, and as I said before, in my opinion, the best song you two have put together yet. This is just incredible.
Thank you lliber, Exitus & Pi38! Your comments are very appreciated
You can post as many times as you like!
Marcus and Kris,
This is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. What a fantastic song. You're both incredible musicians and though I can't even begin to play this, it is because of you 2 guys that I don't give up.
(Strange as that sounds) Usually, when someone hears guys like you play they think "Why bother, I'll never get that good." But you both inspire me to keep at it despite that.
Separately, you are both amazing. Together, you could take the world by storm. Rock on and thanks for sharing your talent and for inspiring new players such as myself to keep at it.
Thank you Joel!
It's always a pleasure reading your comments.
Thanks again for all the fantastic comments that keep coming - I agree that by combining our strengths I think Marcus and I achieved something which we wouldn't have done on our own. So I am really excited to work on more instrumentals with KMC Metal!
Thanks again for your support, which is what keep us going!
I really want this cd...
Is it coming out? Like for sure?
I think Nocturnal Vision literally just gave me Asthma.
I can't even begin to speak, let alone take a mouthful of air.
I've listened to this for awhile, but thought I'd comment now.
This is amazing and I now need to get an Inhaler
how do u 2 come up with something like this?
even when i try, it doesnt come like this...
but i will try harder cos of it!!
just now noticed this........... WOW! kmc-metals greatest piece of work so far IMO, This is incredbly good!
All I can say is that your vibrato is kick ass.......
Hi Kris and Marcus !
I practice the whole song for two days now and i'm at the video number 12.
The thing that i can't do is the little sweeping part. So How can i do improve my sweeping skill (wich is very bad..) ? Should i practice it slowly with a metronom or maybe should i learn a sweeping lesson for beginners (which one ?) before i attack this one ?
Another question What means KMC ??
(K is for Kris, M for Marcus, i guess but for whom is the C ??)
Oh maybe KMC is just an analogy with GMC..
( Ok, i should keep silent and just learn the lesson now )
Congrats on learning it up to video #12
About the sweeping part. Yes, practice very slowly at first and make sure you get the technique 100% right. It's also a good idea to do the other sweeping lessons here. I think there's a beginners lesson from Pavel (just do a search at the main page).
KMC = Kris & Marcus Collaboration
this is a really nice song, I just keep listening to it!!
it has such a feel, such a expression it makes me feel all emotional, and when you can express such feelings in a song, you are a godd musician...
and you both are!!
Thank you Lester!
Yes it's amazing how music (even instrumental songs) can affect our feeling in such way!
OK ! Im back to watch this awsome video AGAIN!
Kris and Marcus you both take my breath away here! Just awsome, I cant wait to finish my current lessons and get started here
Haha this is awesome, could well be top of my itunes play count before long! Brilliant lesson, there's some really cool techniques in here, especially the whammy bar stuff and might have to check out some more of those blues licks.
I love the way the guitar pro version can't handle kris' legato section! Excellent stuff guys, keep them coming please
absolutly beautiful nice sounding stuff!!!!!
As usual guys...amazing. Good to see Kris has some soloing duties on this one, and Marcus, man, as usual I bow to you...great one guys.
Just have to agree with everyone else, this really is a killer song. Almost makes me weep god damnit!
Sjukt bra jobbat Kristofer och Marcus. Sverige levererar!
Thank you all for your comments! We're glad that you like it
Awesome composition guys, I'm going to start practicing this tomorrow, can't believe I missed it when it came out
Wow i can't believe i havn't seen this lesson yet it's so sick it blows my mind
i cant wait till i have it down
i cant get enough of this song it rockssssss
Thank you guys!
awesome!! very melodic and dramatic - thats how i like it!!
it is very helpful to have a long solo to learn and study. you can hear the tension building up and learn how to build long solos!
give us more of this!!
Make sure to check out our "studio jam version" of this song at:
i'm speechless great job
OMG, you have given me goose bumps guys, how much feeling and expressiveness, you almost made me cry. No no, men don't cry.
Awesome really. I'll try in 1 or 2 years when I know how to play guitar
Hey Marcus and Kris!
Im new at GMC and has just put a practise routine together. I gotta tell you, this song is soooo awesome, sooo sweet. Im beginner/intermediate and want to practise my bends/vibrato, and this song has got to be just right for that. I noticed that you sometimes make the bends go downward,even on the third string, which could easily be bend upward (actually you bend both up and down on the third string). So I was wondering if there are any advantages of bending downward compared to upward, and if so when to do which? Hope it makes sense
thx for a very cool song
Wonderful song !
im learning it now
This is absolutely amazing ! However I believe the difficulty level can be misleading...
an awesome masterpiece I downloaded it right after I heard it and I have heard it mininum 10 times in a row now
AWESOME!!! ofcourse I had already heard this tune a long time ago, but a comment is never to late The only negative point... lvl4? that's underrated
Great one guys!!
This has to be the most beautiful thing ive ever heard. Seriously. This is beyond inspiration. This makes me just want to pick up the guitar and cry at the same time. Just simply amazing! Good job Marcus and Kris! When it was done I just stood up from my chair and applauded. If you could make this like a single CD or something, id gladly buy it. Beautiful.
Still an wonderful tune!!! Difficulty 4 is way underrated I think To be able to play full song, it's between 6 or 7 I'd say
im with Young guitarrist!
this song is amazing!
i will put it level 5 as well xD
Hey Kris & Marcus,
My God, what a beautiful piece of music this is !!!!!!! I can listen to it a thousand times and still get the chills as if it was the first. Wish I could play like that !! Also, the sound of the white strat is superb for this song. How did you record this ??????? Anyway, awesome song, awesome performed. You guys are BIG, and a real inspiration for students like me. Thank you for that !!!!!!
Thanks Nikeman!! =)
Marcus used Pod XT for both our guitars - use the search and I think you can find his pod patch if you have the pod and want to go for the same sound.
YESSSSS !!! Found it and it sounds great !!!
Man this song is addictive !! Each time I discover new things in it. Nor Vai nor Satch could have done this better. Really !!!!
Unbelievable....you are both gods of the Guitar!!!
2:25-2:27 very Mr. Friedman in my opinion
Great Music Guys
Fuc#ing AMAZING....if the guitar world community saw this, Kristofer, you would have a million subscribers....
It's been 3 months since i joined this website, and I keep watching this, at least once a week, to remind me of what can be done on this beautiful instrument. Well done Marcus and Kris....Gods in my book :-) haha
Ama$@#$@#zing!!! omfing god!!!!!
woow ..if this is really level 4 ..i should just really quit
Beautiful!! I would love to learn this and post my take.
Please do it - it would be an honor! =)
OMG what a Nice Lesson!!!
wow..just rediscovered this lesson!
brilliant...I will have to learn that!!
thanx for this great piece of music!
haunting melody! sounds like the Scorpions of old. love it
Love it! Beautiful and powerful at the same time.
