I start off with an Amaj7 arpeggio, beginning on the seventh, G#. The first three beats incorporate legato phrasing [hammer-ons and pull-offs used in combination]. I play a total of five notes using the "2-2" form [two notes per string]. I then move to a D augmented arpeggio with a #11, again using the 2-2 form but only playing a group of four notes this time.
This week I’m going to talk a little about how we wrote and recorded the new All Shall Perish album, This Is Where It Ends, that just came out this summer. We started writing some of the material while on tour in Europe last year in September.
Oakland-based metal band All Shall Perish are now streaming their new album, This is Where it Ends, exclusively on their Facebook page. The album was released earlier this week on Nuclear Blast Records.
Full Metal Jackie, corresponding for Guitar World from the 2011 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, got the chance to catch up with All Shall Perish guitarists Francesco Artusato and Ben Orum for an exclusive interview.
