Vitalij Kuprij returns with his second solo offering, entitled "Extreme Measures", this time teaming with neo-classical guitarist George Bellas. This CD showcases Kuprij's soloing skills and confirms why Japan's prestigious Burrn Magazine's readers named him number two in their readers poll for his outstanding keyboard work. Guitar fans will love the choice of Bellas, a serious chopsmith who is up to the challange of dueling with Kuprij, as well as contributing fast paced counterpoint and adding the metal edge.
