If you are looking for
Instrumental Metal with catchy riffs, catchy melody lines and catchy
solo’s, look no further. Marty Friedman, known for his work in
Cacophony and Megadeth is back with a hammer album called
“Loudspeaker” and believe me… it is a hammer album.
11 tracks of very catchy and memorable Instrumental
Metal are what Mr. Friedman offers us. Most of the times Instrumental
Metal is all about extended
scale exercises and arpeggio patterns, pointless bass lines, monotonous rhythm guitar riffs
and boring drumming. But not on this album… 5 seconds into the first
track “Elixer” and you are hooked. The rhythm guitar just captivates
you instantly and believe me… you are playing Air-guitar before you
Every single track is very
good and it’s very, very easy to tell the numbers apart. I don’t see
the point in writing a very long, boring and snobby review, who wants to
read them anyway? Well not me! - So here you have all the facts about
this album; Catchy and memorable guitar lines, catchy rhythms, and
catchy guitar solos. A more than awesome Instrumental piece of Metal.
guest appearances by Steve Vai, John Petrucci, and Billy Sheehan and is
described as “by far Marty’s most aggressive album yet”.
THIS is just the way I like
my Instrumental Metal.
