Back in CR25 Mr Rossey's first demo got a rather unenthusiastic review from one of our resident head bangers. This is much better. Xavier now has a band and suddenly Rossey's flying fret wizardry has reason and focus. All four songs are instrumental and largely belong to the technical metal genre of the Jeff Sheetz/Lanny Cordola style. I say largely because "Wake Up" takes us into jazz funk territory. The opener "One Way" shows off all of the guitar man's virtuosity and pretty thrilling it is as he and his band leap through changes of tempo with frenetic abandon. Exhausting listening but if you like your axemen exuding technical brilliance this unexpected Belgium import is for you.

Hi ! I just found this review. Simply I want to leave a comment on this guy : he's wonderful. I don't understand why the majors didn't help him to record his songs. He was my best guitar teacher and he's still a friend. Please help him if it's possible !
