GEORGE BELLAS Venomous Fingers Lion Music LMC083 (2003)

Guitarist George Bellas has had a series of solo albums since the mid-90's and also appeared on the Mogg/Way albums. He has a fast neo-classical style, which may not to everyone's tastes as guitarists' albums are an acquired taste. It certainly has its moments like the whirlwind soloing on 'Adrenalin Rush' with some nifty keyboards added by George as well. 'Lightspeed' is possibly the fastest soloing I've heard on an album and again its rounded out with keys. Lovely piece of classical music on 'Forever' that breaks the album up nicely and the same goes for 'Mayhem' with I assume programmed vocals as no vocalist is credited on the inlay sleeve.

To be honest it can get a bit much for a non-muso like myself but I listen with awe at his playing and the more overtly classical pieces deserve a listen. An undoubted talent and a fins showcase can be found on 'Venomous Fingers'.
