Michael Fath - Suspended Animation [1992] @ 256 (Diverse Virtuoso Instrumental Guitar Music)

Michael Fath is an extraordinary, yet virtually unknown instrumental guitarist based in Virginia, USA. Now, I know what you are thinking, not another guitarist just wanking away with gratuitous solos, but trust me, this guy is able to keep the music enjoyable while at the same time wielding some amazing chops. This album does a fine job showcasing his amazing mastery of many different styles of playing. Rock, blues, classical, shred, jazz, even some country influences can all be heard throughout this album. The nine cuts comprising the CD feature the incredible speed and dexterity of Fath's single note work, and include a '90's-style, Pentium-speed remake of Deep Purple's chugging classic, "Highway Star" as well as a guitaristic reinterpretaion of The Animals' classic tune, "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place". An enjoyable album through and through. Highly recommended for any fans of instrumental guitar music.

Keep Listening!!!!
