THORBJORN ENGLUND Influences Lion Music LMC174 (2006)

Debut solo album from this guitar wizard, an instrumental set, and it kicks off in amazing fashion. The former Winterlong axeman plays a decent riff and knows how to weave in a tune and a rhythm, all in the opening track 'Jesus Stole My Harley'.

'Heart Of Fire' is equally catchy, and 'Demonica' adds touches of both classic and classical metal. Englund's fingers flash from shred to riffs and back again.

Sadly he doesn't quite have the Gary Moore touch so the slower material doesn't work so well, but when he does pick up the pace it's thoroughly enjoyable.

'Wicked Child' has an almost Iron Maiden-style gallop in the intro.

If you have any interest in top metal guitar of various styles, you'll love this. Catchier than shred too.
