If you like Falling in Reverse guitarist Jacky Vincent’s
terrifying, Paul Gilbert-esque technique, but hate
his band’s singer and lyrics, you’re going to love this
all-instrumental shred fest. The tunes feature harmonized
guitars that are straight out of the Maiden-meets-Cacophony playbook and the solos are positively relentless in their
ferocity. Vincent gets good tone and possesses nice bends and vibrato,
and that—plus the blazing guest spots from Michael Angelo Batio and
Gilbert himself—are sure to please fans of the almighty shred. Shrapnel.
