All Things Guitar
I hope this finds you well.
I am soon going to be releasing my fourth solo album, “Age of Heroes”, on February 3, and I thought I would write to see if you would be interested in reviewing it in DigitalGuitarPlayer, or writing some other kind of piece about it?
“Age of Heroes” is an instrumental guitar album in varied styles, but with a focus on progressive guitar rock. It is a guitar shred album, but it’s played with feeling. The album also features guest performances by Derek Sherinian (known for his work with Dream Theater, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Idol, Alice Cooper etc.), Mattias IA Eklundh (of Freak Kitchen), and the winners of Yngwie Malmsteen’s 2016 Guitar Gods competition, Janne Nieminen and Emil Pohjalainen.
You can listen to 4 songs from the album here to see if it’s something you’d be interested in: http://elmojk.com/age_of_heroes_preview
If you do decide to write about the album, I will of course promote the post on my website and my social media profiles (you can find me here: https://twitter.com/ElmoKarjalainen and here: https://www.facebook.com/elmojk). Also, I can provide you with a digital download version, a physical CD, or streaming, whichever you prefer.
I hope you like the songs, and that you decide to review or feature the album in some way.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I would be happy to check you out. Thanks.
Hi, my name is Austin Ingerman. I am a 23 year old guitar player that just recently moved to L.A. from Florida where I spent the last 5 years playing professionally in a touring cover band. After moving to L.A. I was a presenter/exhibitor for Boss at NAMM 2017, and got the privilege of performing with Metal Allegiance at the Grove in Anaheim. I just released my debut instrumental E.P. which was produced by Chris Collier (Korn, Lynchmob, KXM, Pat Travers and many others). I was wondering if you guys would be so kind to check it out, and write a review for me. I also included a couple Youtube links. Thanks so much, and looking forward to hearing from you. Let me know if you need any other information.
Will do. Thanks.
I attended the Greg Howe show with you a few weeks ago. Is your streaming video archived anywhere on the web? Here is a photo that I took that night:
Sadly no. Usually it is on facebook for a little bit. I will see what I have on my phone left and will upload it to YouTube. You going back in December to see him? Great meeting you by the way.
