With the recent release of 'Crunch' at the turn of this year, Chris and friends have proved that there is still a demand for heavy metal of the more traditional kind. It all began with the band's self-titled EP, originally released in '86, which has now seen the light of day for the first time in the UK, thanks to the very kind folks at Century. Though dated, and somewhat rough around the edges, this four-tracker provides an intriguing and enjoyable insight into a band that has continued to gain in popularity. Comprised of Rob Rock on vocals, Toni Silba on drums and Chris providing the riffs, 'Impellitteri' showcases some great musical moments. From the frenzied opening guitar tones of "Lost In The Rain", through to the solid, determined beats found in "I'll Be Searching", it is evident that Chris is an axeman of the highest calibre and his long standing collaboration with singer/songwriter Rob Rock has continued to provide great chemistry. 'Impellitteri' not only offers a trip down memory lane, but also a valuable milestone in the career of a talented and respected guitar player.
