Artist: Marcel Coenen
Label/ Date: Lion Music/ 2003
On Guitartalk, Marcel shows off his chops using a programmed backed bass, keyboards and drums. Marcel is part of the neo-classical movemnet but he leans more towards Satriani & Vai in his playing. Some technical playing combined with soulful blues and the chugga-chugga sound makes for a pleasant listen.
It took me several listens to fully appreciate this CD. Even though this isnít the genre of music I like the most. Well crafted home based recordings done with excellent style. With all this, I do believe Marcel is better with other musicians backing him rather than a soloist.
Fans of Symphony X, Satriani, Vai and similar will really dig this CD, all others please avoid.
