Buckethead has released the 6th pike, "Balloon Cement". 12 songs of pure awesomeness.  ;D

Buckethead Pikes site is so slow because there is a little dude in India hand coding the HTML each time the page is hit.

I had sent the Pikes website an email asking when this will be pressed on to a CD, and they told me that it will be released as a CD sometime next month.

Next month ?!?!? Ahhh... I don't want to buy it on iTunes. Guess I'll wait, thanks for the info though, DroidHunter !!

I am one of the few that uses a Zune (hey it was cheap and holds a LOT of Buckethead) but they never seem to get any music first. This is going to be a tough wait. Any full songs posted on YouTube yet? ;)

Hey bro, you're not alone, I use a Zune too. ;) I just don't like Apple/iTunes.

Hope this one will become available on CD soon. I prefer physical Discs much over downloads. And Apple/iTunes isn't an option for me anyway ;)

Can anybody describe the style of this release for me, please?

It became available on the Zune today. I was extremely surprised and happy to be able to listen to a new Buckethead while driving.

For those who are waiting to purchase it here is the first 'song' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcvJFIAyDac as the album feels like one whole song broken up into 12 tracks.

Hehe, I just uploaded that! I will be uploading Red Water Colors next, and maybe Veil of Tinfoil and Replacement Nail.

 ;D Then thank you from the bottom of my Bucket. I looked on a whim and found it mins after you put it up.

Veil of Tinfoil is my favorite so far.

In Search Of The

Bought it off iTunes yesterday, played it a couple of times as it's only short, just over half an hour. It might well be the shortest one yet, but only just. It feels a lot like Underground Chamber - the whole album runs like one track and it's laden with effects and frankly terrifying guitar gymnastics.

My only criticism? Each time I hear a funky groove and really get into it, the dynamic changes and often the entire time signature does too. I'm not saying that's a bad thing because I love it when air instrumentalists get stumped, but there's some really brilliant bits here that last for about 8 bars tops and then it flies into this flurry of shredding. I dig shredding, don't get me wrong, but there's some serious binges to be had here.
