Kevin Zugschwert is a marvelous, metal guitar virtuoso with a keen ear for song structure, melody and atmospherics. Not to mention the almighty riff itself. This is high quality instrumental rock with a powerful rhythm section; keen to back up the gorgeous lead and palpable riffs with a tight backdrop. The fast paced, catchy as hell opener; ''Into The Night'' features a marvelous intro/chorus melody that drives the song''s appealingly haunting aggression - contrasting well with the atmospherics of the far darker; ''Love Hate''.
''Fire Dance'' is a very progressive song with strong drumming and teasing guitar licks whereas the piano led; ''Pearl In The Sky'' offers a sanctity with it''s "calm in the eye of the storm" intermission slot and demeanor. There are plenty of 80''s metal influences - Some accessible, some less so. ''Chasing A Dream'' is one of the more accessible, with powerful lead guitar that harkens back to the 80''s block busting movie ''Top Gun''.
With songs like the haunting, almost Latin flavoured; ''Black Rose'' in attendance; Kevin Zugschwert has produced an instrumental record that could even convert those amongst us completely loathed to sit and try and enjoy 10 tracks of instrumental fannying about. However Zugschwert has struck a balance between catchy structures, power house riffs and an entertainment factor that defies the need for vocals and lyrics. If you are a fan of the timeless alternative metal/rock sound - checking out this record is a must; you will be utterly gob smacked at just how engaging and on occasion relaxing this talent filled album can make you - with such a mix of beauty; ''Sandras Song'' and aggression; ''Fire Dance'' there really is a song for every occasion.
