-- Melodic metal shred-master Xander Demos will bring his amazing guitar talents to the 2012 NAMM convention, to be held January 19-22 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA. Xander, who holds endorsements with many industry-leading music equipment manufacturers, including Suhr and McNaught guitars, V-picks, EMG pickups, Dunlop, and ISP Technology, among others, will appear at the ISP booth, demonstrating their Theta-Vector amplifier.
Xander has the industry buzzing, as of late, about his upcoming full-length CD release, "Guitarcadia,"
which is scheduled to be completed in the next few weeks. "We're hoping for a first quarter release for his project," says Michael Stover of MTS Management. "Xander's been doing a ton of press for it, and so has CJ (Snare, of Firehouse, who is mixing the project.) I've read several interviews with him, where he has mentioned Xander's incredible playing. So, we're getting set."
In addition to his own project, Xander is playing on several upcoming compilation discs, including the highly anticipated release by Liberty N Justice, that also features the talents of many rock icons, including Kip Winger, George Lynch, members of Warrant, and many others. That album is now slated for late 2012 release. Xander has also just been added to the lineup of Sabbath, Judas, Sabbath, a tribute band featuring metal god vocalist, James Rivera (Helstar, Malice.)
