Though the concept of a musician becoming
a “guitar god” — a guitarist who not only has a strong fan base, but is
also almost universally revered by his or her peers -— may seem like
something that only happened decades ago, with players like Jimi Hendrix
and Stevie Ray Vaughan rightfully earning such distinction, there are
plenty of contemporary players that have attained “god-like” status in
the music community. One of today’s indisputable guitar gods is Zakk
Wylde, the hard-rocking, Jersey-born six-string slinger who’s been in
the spotlight for more than a quarter century now.

Funky Homosapien, producer Dan the Automator and turntable guru Kid
Koala combined forces to drop Deltron 3030, a futuristic concept album centering on Deltron Zero’s fight to keep corporations from ruling the world.
Yvette is one of those bands whose music,

Dale Eisinger generate wild, anxious, Industrial-skewing Noise Punk that
constantly thunders, squirms or drones.
