Gus G - Fearless

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Come to think of it, when a guitar virtuoso releases a solo album, it mostly appeals to all those guitar addicts who know every scale and every arpeggio and are on the hunt for the next super-duper-complicated riff to melt their fingers on. Being on the other side of the spectrum (and just a humble air-guitarist), I find it difficult to digest such albums which usually fade away after some listening sessions. Having this in mind, one can only appreciate Gus G. for wanting to follow the other direction and create music to rock / headbang without losing that spicy taste of guitar-action for those who want it. This is still work in progress and one can easily track it down by checking how Gus G.’s songwriting has evolved from the days of “I Am The Fire” (I consider “Guitar Master” as a showcase type release). So, “Fearless” is Gus G.’s third solo LP attempt and I think the saying ‘third time’s the charm’ is definitely applicable.

Michael Schenker Fest - Resurrection

Another one of those albums I hardly dare to start listen to; Michael Schenker is one of my all-time guitar heroes as well as teenage idol. And with the awesome shows delivered under the MICHAEL SCHENKER FEST moniker, my anticipation was set extremely high for “Resurrection”.

Marco Mendoza - Viva La Rock

Marco Mendoza is a familiar name as he has been playing with tons of prominent bands and artists. WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY, Ted Nugent to mention a few, and now he's on the move with the amazing THE DEAD DAISIES. But I have to admit I'm not all that sighted with his solo work. If fact, seeing him in Copenhagen a year ago was my first encounter with that.

Reuben Archer’s Personal Sin - Petrolhead

Ok, so I got a little overexcited reading about REUBEN ARCHER'S PERSONAL SIN and their second album “Petrolhead” and got a little carried away. I was blown away by STAMPEDE's gig at the 'NWOBHM X-MAS Rocka' in Sheffield in 2016, so I just had to have it. I ordered the albums and requested a promo for review before I actually gave the “Grand Theft Auto” video-single a go... With its Blues-y nature, for a few seconds, I thought I'd be in over my head. But only a few bars into the song I was overmastered and found myself hitting 'play' again and crank up the volume.
