Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of a new music video by North Carolina's Valient Thorr. The track, "Torn Apart," is from the band's new album, Our Own Masters, which will be released June 18 via Volcom Entertainment.
After plenty of teaser videos, song premieres and streaming events, Black Sabbath's long-awaited new album, 13, was finally released today, June 11, via Vertigo/Republic. To celebrate the occasion, all three remaining original members of the band — Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler — will participate in a live Town Hall event at 7 EST tonight.
Jason Becker's instrumental masterpiece, "Perpetual Burn," has been a perpetual source of inspiration — and challenge — for guitarists since it was originally released in 1988. In fact, we decided to challenge our own staff, who turned in a spot-on, 17-page transcription of Becker's shred classic in the new July 2013 issue of Guitar World magazine. Now it's time to challenge you!
