Terno Recordings will launch Up Dharma Down's much-awaited third album Capacities this November 28, 2012 at One Esplanade in the Mall of Asia complex. The album follows two critically-acclaimed and proudly independent albums: Fragmented (2006) and Bipolar (2012). The music video of the lead single “Turn It Well” recently made its way in local music channels. The album will also be available in a limited edition 12” vinyl format.
Drummer Ean Mayor, bassist Paul Yap, guitarist Carlos Tanada and lead vocalist/keyboardist Armi Millare made their breakthrough with hits such as “Maybe” and “Oo” penetrating mainstream consciousness even without major label machinery. The band stood out in the scene for their brand of music that’s almost impossible to pigeonhole, and yet still accessible to open ears and minds.

Experience the god-like powers of Mike Portnoy, Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan and Tony MacAlpine as they join forces for the most resplendent musical event of the year. Doors open at 7pm on November 6, 2012 for the 9pm show at the SM City North Skydome, Quezon City. This quartet of virtuosos are set to melt faces with a heavy instrumental performance full of material coming from each of their own solo records and past collaborations, including classic covers and extended solo plays.
Mike Portnoy (of Dream Theater/Liquid Tension Experiment) formed the lineup of masters to perform at two drum events at the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) Show in Anaheim, California, USA back in January 2012. Due to an overwhelming response, the band decided to take their most excellent lineup on tour for the world to see and enjoy. Portnoy says, "I knew when assembling this line up, that it would be a magical musical experience that would be a blast for us as well as the fans! I can't wait to play again with these tremendous musicians and share the experience with you all at these special shows!" The Philippines will be the 15th stop before their show in Taipei, Taiwan followed to be followed by a show in Bangkok, Thailand for this highly anticipated tour of 22 shows. The tour will end on November 18 in New York City.
Individually, these virtuosos have made their mark in history for being the best of the best in making creative technical music. Portnoy has received 26 awards to date and was the second youngest person to be inducted into the Hall of Fame by Modern Drummer magazine. Billy Sheehan, mostly known for his bass playing skills in Mr. Big and for David Lee Roth is currently regarded by musicians across the globe as the standard by which other bassists are measured up against. Keyboardist Derek Sherinian, known for performing and making music with Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Yngwie Malmsteen, Kiss, and Alice In Chains, has been acknowledged as "Keyboard Hero for a New Generation" for his unique "guitaristic" approach to his keyboard style. The neo-classical metal guitar player, Tony MacAlpine is known for his highly advanced shred techniques. His style incorporates elements of classical, jazz, fusion, hard rock and heavy metal on both guitar and the keyboard, tagging him as one of the most influential musicians to ever walk the planet.
See these modern music masters in the flesh for only Php3,170 (Platinum) and Php2,120 (Gold). Meet and Greet PULP Royalty passes are also available.
