May 2016 be a better year and may we know how to enjoy each minute with the people we love.



May we know how to get up after each fall, may we know how to exceed ourselves with each difficulty, may we know how to take a deep breath and pull ourselves back together after each tear, and every time we think of giving up, may we remind ourselves where we want to get to and never forget it will never be easy, but that when we do get there, we will have that smile in our faces and feeling of duty fulfilled.

Lots of joy, satisfaction, peace and health to all.

These are the wishes from the friend and guitarist...

Douglas Jen

APR 24 - EVEN AFTER TWO YEARS, THE "TRAUMATIC SCENES" ALBUM KEEPS GETTING GOOD REVIEWS.

Check out the review by Argentinian magazine El Corte (SPANISH).

"Un Prog Power vibrante y vigoroso, atento a todo lo que lo rodea pero sin crisparse (con Angra, Masterplan y Symphony X en su centro; pero con lugar para Dream Theater y Rhapsody; Evergrey y Nevermore; y Talisman, Rage o la Black Label Society): Suprema no es ajeno al círculo virtuoso tradicional que se da entre técnica, variedad y profusión que su extracción amerita. Máxime si deben superar un debut (Spyeyes) que hace casi 10 años los catapultó como Revelación y si, además, la herramienta elegida por este cuarteto paulista es un trabajo cuasi conceptual (Traumatic Scenes) basado en un filme de ficción, con vocalistas invitados y colaboradores multinivel."


APR 15 - REVIEW OF CLINIC IN ARARAQUARA FROM 'MY GUITAR' WEBSITE

"The clinic featured Douglas Jen as open act, from SupreMa band. His clinic featured songs such as "Nightmare", "Fury and Rage", and ended with a well played tribute of Dream Theater, with “Overture 1928” and “Strange Deja vu”. Between the songs he nicely talked with the audience, answering about his gear, band and his way of playing and writing.

About the gear, Douglas uses the Peavey 6505 head (old 5150), with a Boss delay pedal and a MXR Equalizer, plugged in the loop. His guitar was made exclusively for him, favoring the heavy, attack and sustain. He uses .11 strings and active EMG pickups 81 and 89 (the same of Zakk Wilde). Douglas showed a lot of eloquence talking with the audience, and a musical competence above average playing his guitar, and performing heavy riffs and fast and precise solos. Certainly it was an excelent way to begin the works of the evening."
