    I did skeksis and think it was a lot more than “not remotely accurate,” ouch!! It’s a powertab and is probably out there somewhere.

    I'm not familiar with them, what's a good starting point?

    Similar to Per Nilsson, I need to ask Paul Masvidal again to see if he can get me in touch with Devin. If I remember correctly, the master recordings for his earlier albums (Terria and before) were destroyed in a house flood, so unfortunately my favorite album Ocean Machine is out of the question. You're absolutely right that his "wall of sound" production style makes transcribing difficult. A lot of times, the challenge with transcribing is simply being able to hear the parts clearly, not that the parts themselves are necessarily difficult. Would love to work with Devin for sure.

    Gorguts, Human Remains, Dim Mak, Ripping Corpse and Gridlink would all be awesome to have. All those bands have members who are relatively active on Facebook and I bet all of them would be down for getting correct tabs out there.

    Man, from the main forum page it looked like people were discussing a band called "Evan's Official Transcript" which I thought was a very weird tongue-in-cheek name for an SSO type band, but a nice change from ~Periphoria or ~The Von Neumann Aparatus type names. I guess this makes more sense.

    Huge +1. I would buy those in a heartbeat. Was just listening to Intercepting fist (Dim Mak) the other day.

    I've found isolated tracks for some JP stuff, are there are particular songs for albums you'd want to see transcribed?
    The only band I've listened to from this list is Gorguts, do you have any suggested starting points for the others?

    I know I've been quiet on here lately, but I've been transcribing a ton. Hoping to have news to share on the next official book in October. I just finished a full album transcription today, and am planning on starting work on the next book tonight or tomorrow. Also met up with and contacted lots of bands in the past few months. The hardest part of the process is just getting the ball rolling with people. I have a special upload planned for my youtube channel for when I hit 1,000 subscribers. I'm currently at 925, and I'd greatly appreciate any new subscribers from this forum! https://www.youtube.com/user/7strings89

    Sure. Check out Human Remains - Using Sickness as a Hero, Dim Mak - Knives of Ice, Ripping Corpse - Dreaming with the Dead and Gridlink - Longhena. Feel free to PM me about tunings or who to contact from any of these bands that catch your interest.

    Hey, Evan. Erik Rutan was a member of Ripping corpse. I think you said you were friends(?) with Erik. Though, I'm not sure exactly what he wrote on the album, as they had 2 guitar players in the band, I would think Erik could probably be a huge help in a tab book if he agreed to it.

    From the way I understood it, Shaune and Erik both did a lot of writing on DWtD. It's a shame the second album never got completed...

    Since you've already have a lot of experience with this style of music - how about some Exivious transcriptions? I would by them in a heartbeat...
    Also Textures or Mutiny Within would be interesting.

    I'm trying to make this happen, which is all I can say for now.

    Would love to do Textures, but now that they're broken up there would probably be less interest from them in doing a book. Haven't listened to Mutiny Within since their first album, but I wouldn't rule them out either. Thanks!

    A tab book for this was close to being put into production before Jason got the boot. I read on IG all royalties for the album had been tied up legally too so it’s doubtful it will ever get released. Jason has tabs for his solos on the album and all of IVX/behold.

    I do not know him personally, but I'm working on getting in touch with him about doing transcription work. Cannibal Corpse are coming to town next month, if I haven't heard from him by then, I may just go to the show and catch up with him there. I checked out some Ripping Corpse last night, pretty cool stuff. If someone has the isolated tracks and there aren't any publishing issues, I'd be happy to do it. I imagine there would be a much bigger demand for Hate Eternal though.

    Thanks for the list. I'd be interested in doing all of these. I emailed the Faceless (a year or two ago at this point), and their management said they already had the whole album transcribed. No idea why a book hasn't surfaced. I've transcribed some early Queensryche (from a personal request) and would especially love to do Operation: Mindcrime. Looks like there was a book back in the day, but it's out of print and not the whole album anyway. Some of the other artists on the list I've either heard back from, or have contacted and am waiting on a response.

    In other news, I just finished the first song for the latest book, and will have some non-transcription content on Tuesday.

    Yes! Erik Rutan mentioned a Hate eternal guitar tab book many, many years ago. Once in awhile, I'll see if there any updates but no luck. I would imagine Erik doesn't have much time with him balancing his own band (Hate eternal), running his own studio/recording band albums and filling in for Cannibal corpse. But I'll definitely purchase a Hate eternal tab book if you guys release one.

    Happy to share that I did a guest solo on the new Failure of Milk EP, Automaton! I played on the first track, around the 3-minute mark. Anyone interested in instrumental metal should check it out.

    Also finished the transcriptions for the next book mentioned in my last post. Already looking forward to the next one.

    Evan - how about some Jake E Lee stuff? His Ozzy and Badlands stuff is pretty sweet.
