It’s been six years now since Impellitteri released their last album, the critically acclaimed Wicked Maiden. A heck of a long time to wait for any album, but this is Chris Impellitteri folks, a man who defines the word perfection. Since their self titled EP in 1987, their world renowned shredder has been awarded just about every accolade from numerous guitar magazines, including fastest guitar player in the world.
Everybody is out on the road now. Don Airey for instance, he is in Deep Purple. He plays keyboards in Deep Purple, and he is in three other bands. That shows you exactly what it is like. If you try to play solid in the States, for example in Los Angeles no one is really interested. It is pretty hard.”
