Stéphan Forté Announces Solo Album Name, Guests...


08-08-2010

Stéphan is at the moment recording the guitars for his first instrumental solo album entitled: The Shadows Compendium
The album is planned for a release around the end of 2010. So far the confirmed guests are Jeff Loomis (Nevermore) Shrapnel artists Derek Taylor, Rusty Cooley and Motorhead's Phil Campbell. Some other guests will be announced shortly.

Photograph/graphic designer Perrine Perez Fuentes, who previously worked with Adagio for the re-edition of Adagio's live album "A Band In Upperworld" will be in charge of the artwork and photos of the album. (www.myspace.com/perrineperezfuentes).

Stéphan: " I am in the middle of the guitar recordings at the moment, so far it's going great ! I already received Derek's guest solo, which is of course absolutely insane, lots of shred and twisted harmonies, and I will soon be receiving Jeff, Rusty and Phil's solos. I am very honoured to have such talented friends participating to my album and I'm of course more than impatient to hear their incredible stuff. Some other prestigious guests will be announced soon."
So far the album features 9 instrumental songs, most of it is really heavy and of course very dark and shred oriented guitar wise.

Kevin Codfert will handle the mixing and recording duties, and of course all keyboards and piano parts.



 

 

Adagio Working On Upcoming Album


08-07-2010

Stéphan Forté, Kevin Codfert and Mats Levén, are at the moment working on the composition of Adagio's fifth album at Kevin's XFade studio in Nanterre (France).
Stéphan: Hey everyone, here's some great news ! I'm at the moment at Kevin's studio working on the composition of Adagio's upcoming album, and for the first time, I will not compose the whole music and lyrics alone, as Mats, Kevin and the guys will also collaborate to the writing !! It will definitely bring a fresher sound to the band, and so far, the experience is awesome. Mats arrived here on Sunday, and we've started working right away on some ideas. Lots of great melodic vocal lines, heavy riffing and intense piano parts are coming naturally, so that's a very positive start...
Another big change, is since I've down tuned my Lâg 7 string to A for my solo album, I am now using that for Adagio's new stuff as well, so be prepared for some really heavy shit ;))

Stéphan LÂg Signature Special Interview


19-06-2010




When did you first decide to create this SF II ?
Michel Chavarria and I started working together on the first seven strings prototype approximately 10 years ago.

How have you known Lâg and why did you choose this brand? Did you try other guitars?
Yes, I've known Lag for many years, and when my first guitar endorsement deal came to an end, I've had a proposal from Lâg to join their team. There has been no second thought as their guitars were awesome and on the human level, there was already a great friendship between Michel and I.

Concerning your Signature Model, what are the main differences between this model and your previous ones?
There has been 4 different prototypes. The first proto was the Beast Seven Pro, based on the Beast model which is no longer produced by the brand. The body was pretty heavy, and the neck quite thick. Then, we decided to go further, and Michel asked me to think about new ideas, something that would make that guitar different from the other 7 strings available on the market. I came up with a couple of ideas. First, the 27 frets. I wanted something that would allow me to reach the 24th fret without any problem, and possibly reach some higher notes. Then, I wanted the pickup selector and volume knobs to be right under my right hand, so I would not have to move it when I play, especially when I need to change the pickup position. That's when the circular selector idea came. That led to the second prototype, the SFI, it was already a big improvement, the body and the neck were way thinner and the controls were ideal. Then, I came up with some little changes we would need to make: the neck needed to be reinforced because of the extreme tension due to the 7th string and the 27 frets. We added 4 titanium truss rods in the neck. We also worked on a more profiled body and thinner neck. That was the 2nd version of the SF1, I have a purple one (with the red pickup ;) and a red one.
Then, 3 years ago, the idea was pretty much there. However, before producing it, I asked if we could make a last proto, going further in the profiling of the guitar and above all, to make the thinnest neck possible. The team worked very hard, and broke three wonderful necks because it was too thin. Eventually, the 4th one was the right one.

You’ve chosen to have Custom DiMarzio pickups, why such a choice, and how did your collaboration with this brand get?
When we were doing the SF1, Michel ordered a couple of different pickups to Di Marzio so that we could try them, and when he said it was for the signature model of one of their artists, they started asking questions about me and checked out my music and playing. They wrote back a couple of days later, and not only did they propose to endorse me but also to make the pickups the way I really wanted them. I was over the moon! So, I asked Steve Blutcher if he could just scoop the mids a bit more on the Blaze 2 pickup (neck position) and add more on the Tone zone 7. When we received it, it was exactly what I had in mind. Steve is a genius and an awesomely cool guy, thanks again to him and all at DiMarzio for this huge support.

Why have you made the choice of putting an incurved selector?
So that it could follow the right hand move when I'm playing

Why did you choose a satiny finish on the neck of your guitar? Does it help you to play faster?
The feeling is great. The varnish is very soft, plus I think it's way classier.

The neck is scalloped from the 18th fret, under the acutest strings. What does it bring to you?
A better control on the bendings. The space between frets is so small on this part of the neck that the scalloping helps a lot.

What does the ebony fingerboard bring to you? Is it mainly about the sound that it brings, or rather for the touch?
It's because this is the strongest fretboard wood, and because of the huge neck length, we needed something in Ebony. Plus as I have no marks on the neck, aesthetically, it's much nicer to have a black fretboard

It’s a very thin guitar but what is the weight of your signature guitar?

I do not know the exact weight, but it is way lighter than any other 7 string guitar I've tried so far. I can make a full show with Adagio without feeling any pain due to the guitar overweight.

Why have you chosen maple and mahogany for the body?
Michel decided this, because he has the absolute knowledge of these things, and I am not very familiar with the sound specifications of wood types.

Do you think your guitar is polyvalent enough to play other styles than metal?
Definitely, although of course, it is done for Metal, it has an incredibly nice clean tone, very brilliant. When the pickups are split, you have that kind of bluesy Strat sound when playing with very little gain, in crunch mode.

Are you proud of this guitar model or have you already planned to make another one in the future?

Of course I am proud of this guitar!! lol
No, the 7 strings will stay this way now, I think we've achieved the perfect instrument, at least for me. We are now working on a six string signature model. It will be quite different, I still do not know if we keep the 27 frets or not, maybe you guys could drop me a message on facebook and let me know your ideas about how you would see this 6 strings ;)

Lag has already sold some Korean versions of your guitar, but will the French ones be available soon?

It is available through Custom Shop. You just have to go to your local dealer.

Do you often use the split for Adagio or is that more for the pleasure of having it on your own signature model?
When I play clean or crunch, definitely. Plus the fact that the split is a push-push, makes the change very easy.

For which type of guitarist would you advise this guitar?
Mostly for Metalheads, and particularly for shredders who want to be extreme and push the limits of their playing. This is THE perfect shred guitar!!!

Stéphan Forté Working On Instrumental Solo Album!


27-05-2010

Stéphan is at the moment in studio working on the composition of his instrumental solo album.

"It's been a very long time since I wanted to do this. I've started to work on the first ideas a couple of years ago and am now spending 100% of my working time on it. So far, 7 songs are composed and today I am in the middle of the 8th one. It will be around 9 songs I guess. Musically, it's very shred, dark and neoclassical oriented. The Metal influences goes from shredders such as Cacophony (Becker and Friedman) Haji's Kitchen, Derek Taylor, Scott Stine etc..to bands like Meshuggah, Dream Theater...There's a lot of Middle Eastern, Indian and Japanese traditional music elements mixed with a classical influences, going from romantic (Chopin, Liszt, et..) to some more contemporary composers such as Bartok, Prokofiev, Messiaen, Penderecki etc...
And of course it's massively Heavy ;) My Lâg is tuned down to A, and I might now use this for Adagio as well !!!"

Yes , the site was closed during one week, and you probably wondered why ! No Adagio is not dead !!! We just wanted to do something more attractive and clearer, where you can easily find all the information you need about Adagio. So we wish you a good time and feel free to leave your comments to the band and fans on the Forum Page.
