BAND ALBERT MARSHALL
OUT 2018 - Sept 14th
LABEL RED CAT RECORDS
OUR RATING 84/100
SPEAKEASY is the first solo job by guitarist ALBERT MARSHALL out on Sept 14th via RED CAT RECORDS.
This album contains six instrumental tracks and two sung by MARK BOALS, well-known as singer of YNGWIE MALMSTEEN and ULI JOHN ROTH, among others.
Other musicians are Roberto Gualdi on drums (Pfm, Glenn Hughes) and Simon Dredo (Alex De Rosso, Adam Bomb).
This album is absolutely various, while considering the inspiration from masters as Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert e Jason Becker; you can feel random shredding tracks as BUTLER'S REVENGE, "oriental" drops in the intro of BADLANDS, before falling towards hard rock seas as in FALLEN ANGEL (the first track sung by always smart MARK BOALS).
Yes.. HARD ROCK, but well mixed with shredding parts and cutting riffs!
RAMSHACKLE BLUES is a contemporary and electric song, before the melodic ECLIPSE taking us towards to the end.
A GREAT ALBUM, FRESH AND WELL-PRODUCED! NOTHIN' ELSE TO ADD!
