Yeah, . . . I waste so much time on the internet when we are at home. We are looking to buy a new van right now. We had two vans terminally break on us in a months amount time.

That's a hefty dose of bad luck!

Although I haven't heard your band yet (despite recommendations from Darko!), I read about Psyopus in Terrorizer this month. Sounded good from what the journalist wrote.

Awesome! I haven't got to get my hands on this months Terrorizer yet. I'd like to read how it came out. We are also in this months Decidel, there's a review in Metal Maniacs, and we are listed in AP's "Top 10 Math Metal Essentials". I think I might go get that Terrorizer now! Shitty thing is we aren't touring right now to follow the promotion.

I can reproduce the article and PM it to you if you like? It's pretty good, very positive.

OK, here's Kevin Stewart-Panko's Terrorizer article that I promised:


PSYOPUS

FRET-FLAILING MENTALISTS SAVED FROM A LIFE OF DURST

Presently, when Rochester, NY's Psyopus get discussed, people immediately gravitate to one of three topics. One, the over-the-top tech-metal of their debut album, 'Ideas Of Reference', and two, the mathematician-in-a-blender eight-finger tapping technique of guitarist Christopher Arp, are obviously related. As for the third... you'll just have to keep reading. Psyopus is the brainchild of the previously unknown Arp, who searched two and a half years for musicians dedicated to a mix of perplexing dissonance, tension and tempo fuckology, and flash-handed technicality. While the focus has been on Arp's spasmodic style, he's quick to praise his bandmates, which include ex-members of Kalibas, Inertia and Hate Machine.

"Some reviews I've read have been saying that the other guys in the band are 'keeping up with me' or whatever, but this band would be nothing without them. This may be my first real band, but this isn't the first group of people I've played with and seldom does a day go by I don't appreciate the people I'm working with. Our drummer [Greg Herman] has only been playing for like, three years, although he's probably played guitar for as long as I have. He knows how to write songs and has a good analytical understanding of music. Our bass player [Fred Decoste] basically doubles everything I do. It's funny, I get all the recognition, but that kid is doing the same fucking thing on his bass. In the song 'Death, i...' there are some legato scale runs and he's doing them. I remember when we wrote that, I was saying to him, 'Dude, you can't be doing that, you're gonna hurt your hands!'"

Two-hand tapping is nothing new. Having eight fingers widdle along a fretboard is something that guitarist from all genres have embarked upon for ages. The difference here is that the technique is a large part of Arp's repertoire, not something confined to showy leads and solos. At least 50 per cent of his playing involves giving the plectrum a rest, and it's that much more astounding to witness his precision while flailing around on stage.

"The two-handed thing," explains Chris, "is a blend of different things: not having a guitar pick, constantly playing, even while watching TV and my different philosophies on creating music, one of which I call 'Being A Retard.' Sometimes, some of the coolest and most unorthodox things happen when you take a different perspective. So, I'll do something unexpected while playing and watching TV or I'll be like, 'I'm gonna start slapping the fretboard like a retard.' A lot of the unorthodox stuff comes from trying to develop a personality and be as individual as possible. I can tell you what I'm doing isn't Stanley Jordan or Eddie Van Halen."

The third point that terminally comes up in Psyopus-related conversations is how Arp was the regional winner during limpbizkit's nationwide open auditions for a guitarist a couple of years back. Please tell us you did this as a joke?

"At the time, I was having no luck starting a band and was working the graveyard shift in a factory, just getting by. Some guy at work asked if I was going to audition and I was like, 'Nah.' He said, 'Yeah, I can see why you'd blow that opportunity off, working graveyard in a factory.' That just kind of put it in perspective; it would have been a job change and straight up, those guys hang out at the Playboy mansion," he laughs. "I went and just played a bunch of unorthodox crap. I think that's what I had going for me."

Did he meet Fred Durst?

"No, the band wasn't even there. But they gave me a guitar for winning."

A mid level RG Ibanez w/ two humbuckers and a single coil.

Did you guys want me to tab out any of those riffs?

I started but they said I have to tab the whole song, . . . that's WAY too many notes. Plus, there are two guitar parts thru out that song - WAY WAY TOO many notes.

You can just post the riff in this thread. Just use [*code](insert tab here)[/code] and it will be neatly formatted. Once you delete the asterix it will appear as
Code:
(insert tab here)
