Pete and I worship Criss Oliva’s (Savatage) playing. Criss had a huge influence on my playing, he was a supremely underrated guitarist and I hope you can hear some of his style in both of our playing and hopefully a little bit of Randy Rhoads too.
If you are an existing fan of Fozzy and don’t have this album yet, then get it because you will love it. If you haven’t heard the band yet then just pick any song and give it a listen as there’s a very good chance you will like it. I recommend this album with no hesitation and suggest you get it as soon as possible then you can hear for yourself why it made my Top 5 albums of 2014 list. With a reputation of being a great live act, I for one am certainly looking forward to the March tour. See you down the front!
Lush soundscapes, freaky lyrics, the odd midi-sounding stereo effects and the drone-based guitar all add up to something that is so perfect to sit down and mellow with, that it should have been released as a collectors edition with a joint and a strip of acid included…
