The Review:

Norway’s Lion Music is famous for putting out endless amounts of metal whether it be vocal or instrumental, power or prog, melodic or death. One of their newest releases is Joy 4 Ever by Anand—guitarist Anand Mahangoe.Anand’s phrasing and soloing—which owe quite a bit to Joe Satriani but he tends to prefer melody over chops, which is a welcome sign.

Chock full of tastefully produced guitar based music, Anand also allows for the other instruments to shine as well, again a refreshing sign. I for one, do not typically listen to this sub genre, but Joy 4 Ever is one of the best things to come out of Lion Music and the metal world.
