HOW TO END THE YEAR

Yes, I blog like crazy, that’s just me. I guess I have a lot to say. So here’s yet another installment from the mind of Steve Bello.

OBLIGATORY YEAR IN REVIEW

Ladies and gentleman, it’s that time of the year where I purposely pontificate the year that was 2015.

And oh what a year it was!  Read more

HOLIDAY GREETINGS

I want to wish everyone who peruses this website a very Merry Christmas!!

Updated my page on the Metal Archives site, been a while, but still need to change a couple of things. But the new album is listed, so that’s a start!!  Steve Bello Metal-Archives Page

Hope you got all the gifts you wanted but most importantly, you got to spend quality time with your families!

Peace out…

THINGS ARE HAPPENIN’!

It is very nice to see my hard work (and Rosario’s too, let’s not forget that) pay off. The album LAYERS OF TIME has been out a week and while sales are brisk and steady, the level of support that I am seeing from all of you is amazing. Knowing that you all requested “Postcards From Mars” on the NewUSB Radio site proves that you all want to hear MUSIC, no other way of saying it.

I understand that with the holidays in full swing, and everyone doing 456 things to prepare for Christmas (the malls and ShopRite…yikes!), I appreciate you all taking a few minutes to hear my brand of weird-ass progmetalfunk, so thank you for that!

Don’t forget that this Monday December 28th, I will be doing my first live phone interview to promote the new album on 40 Foot Hole Studio! The show starts at 8pm and my interview will be at 8:45, hosted by Dave McMahon and Ripped guitarist Steven Keller. We will play select tracks from the album as well as tracks from other guitar players we admire such as Steve Vai, Robin Trower, Jimi Hendrix, etc. This will be a lot of fun and with Dave and Keller, who knows what will fly out of their mouths!!

Once again, thank you all for the wonderful support and I cannot wait to get back on stage soon with new music and new band members.

Oh yeah…I have to audition people soon, right?

 

 

 

NEW SINGLE DEBUTS AT #5!

 

Thanks to everyone who requested the new single “Postcards From Mars” on NewUSB Radio in the UK! It made a nice debut at #5 on the Metal charts, definitely very very cool to see!

And in a strange twist, “Insane Rain” (from GO BERZERK!) re-entered the charts last week and then fell off. Strange how this music thing works but it’s nice to see you all supporting my music.

You can download the new album LAYERS OF TIME by going to the SHOP page here on this website. It’s the best album I’ve ever done to date…trust me, you won’t be disappointed.

More surprises coming soon!!!

IT’S THE LITTLE THINGS…

Hello everyone! I realize that Christmas is a few days away, and you are all scrambling to get things ready for the holidays. I really do appreciate those of you who take a few minutes out of your hectic schedule to read my ramblings and nonsense on here.

Ironically for a guy who writes instrumental music, I was always good with words.

THE DAY HAS ARRIVED!

LAYERS OF TIME was released!!! Read more

AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW!!!

AVAILABLE NOW!!!!

The new album LAYERS OF TIME is finally available for download on the SHOP page!!!!

THIS TUESDAY!!!

LAYERS OF TIME 12.15.15

The silence has been broken!! After four years, a brand new studio album will be unleashed on Tuesday, December 15th and I am very proud and excited. Hope you all are too! Your support motivates me to be a better musician and writer…and human being too, let’s not forget that!

The track listing is as follows:

  1. Postcards From Mars
  2. Nuclear Paradise
  3. Instant Amnesia
  4. Balancing The Sun
  5. Slippery Gypsy
  6. Too Far Below Zero
  7. Jigsaw Mind
  8. Dangerous Heat
  9. Layers Of Time

While I can pat myself on the back for handling all the instruments and drum programs, credit must be given to Rosario as well for his tireless efforts and making sure each song was treated with proper care and expertise. He also helped with some cool synth patches on the title track as well as adding a bit more “oomph” to the drum tracks. This album was a LOT of hard work but the results are amazing!

Let’s rip shit up!

 

LINING UP FOR THE NEW YEAR

Hello everyone! I always say this but it bears repeating: THANK YOU for taking the time to check out my rambling and blabbering on my blogs here. I guess I have a lot on my mind.

That can be dangerous… Read more
