Speed Metal Symphony
"Speed Metal Symphony" signified a dramatic change in neo-classic heavy metal, by blending together the "over the top" guitar fury of Marty Friedman and 17 year old guitar phenomenon Jason Becker. "Speed Metal Symphony" features intense classical, contrapuntal lines, played in odd-meter against a speed metal wall of rhythm--enough to have left guitar fanatics pointing at their speakers in disbelief. Instrumental tracks include "Concerto" and the mind-numbing title track.
