Lion Music LMC191 (2006)

Neo-classical metal virtuoso guitarist Harris releases his 6th solo album, basically playing all bar the drums himself, with strings and orchestration provided care of his Yamaha Motif ES synth.

If you take the orchestral influence or angle of many European virtuoso metal guitarists and distil it, make it more neo classical, that's what you have here. From Malmsteen to Rhapsody in a purer classical form, but still metal.

'The Mad Composer's Rage' is a apt title and is mad, fiery, captivating, with metal guitar mixing with strings. Very demented and equally enjoyable.

There's some fantastic work here, and the highlights stand out greatly, but as a whole instrumental album some might find it hard going. As long as you know what you're getting and you like this kind of thing it's excellent.
