Today, GuitarWorld.com presents the exclusive premiere of "Euthanasia," a new song and music video by Hedras Ramos, a jaw-dropping eight-string prog-metal guitarist from Guatemala.
We first wrote about Ramos back in 2011, when we identified him as someone to look out for in the future; it looks like we were right.
Ramos has made serious strides since then, recording several albums and catching the eyes and ears of scores of top guitarists and media outlets; he was chosen by Axl Rose to open for Guns N' Roses in Guatemala—and he's opened for White Cross, Kansas, Die Toten Hosen and many more.
He recorded the entire 10-track album with bassist Simon Grove (Plini, the Helix Nebula) and drummer Anup Sastry (Intervals); the disc also features guest appearances by Plini and Martin Miller.
For your listening and viewing pleasure, we've included another new song/video by Ramos—"The Bourgeois." The clip was filmed at Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. "It's where the Mayans lived—a very mythical place," Ramos says.
