GUITARIST LOU DiBELLO SHOWCASES HIS SKILLS ON ‘HEAT WAVE’

The art of six-stringer shredding has unquestionably come back to forefront in modern day hard rock and heavy metal music. And talented guitarist Lou DiBello will soon be leaving his own mark on the genre, with the release of his album, ‘Heat Wave.’ The album features input from current or former members of Manowar (guitarist Ross “The Boss” Friedman) and Symphony X (bassist Mike Lepond), and is chockfull of headbanging rockers and six-string showcases, especially the tune “Full Throttle,” which can be sampled here: https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=p-NPz-HcduM
 
Heat Wave is my 4th solo release and by far my best effort to date,” explains DiBello. “The fact that I worked with such a great group of people was key, most notably singer Carsten Schulz, bassist Mike LePond, and legendary guitarist Ross ‘The Boss’ Friedman. It was a real honor to have Ross play dueling leads and harmonies with me on the epic track ‘Blood on the Cross,’ and he gave me valuable advice along the way as well. The record is a nice blend of hard rock/metal with vocals as well as instrumental tracks with a real emphasis on good songs with great guitar playing, as opposed to just great guitar playing. All out rocker ‘Let Me Hear You Scream – Rock & Roll!,’ as well as instrumental tracks ‘Full Throttle’ and my take on the Michael Schenker classic ‘Into the Arena’ are a few of the highlights.”

As an instructor, DiBello has given over 25,000 private lessons, and started one of the first streaming guitar lesson websites.”

Love music! Being around it, watching it, sometimes even playing it since I was a little Trouble-Maker growing up in the Orange County California Punk Scene. I was that one kid who would scale walls and fences just to get a glimpse in side venues to see big bands like Iron Maiden, Circle Jerks, Van Halen ,Black Flag, etc, etc. My past job's has taking me to many cool places. I worked as a PR Asst that has helped with actors & actresses. I have also helped a few bands with their bookings, promos and some management opportunities. For me, music has always been my drug even when I found myself caught up in the drug scene here in the Los Angeles area where I now call home. Today I'm proud to say I've been clean & sober from drug use since 2000. Rock is what I'm mostly into! "Shit that moves you, Shit that has heart and soul." Says the late great Dimebag. I'm currently working as a west coast rep for the radio program Maximum Threshold Radio @ (www.maximumthreshold.net). You can find me @ www.facebook.com/radchad70 where you can see my many journey's into the music scene. MTR: www.facebook.com/MaximumThresholdRadio/.
