Band: Animals As Leaders
Following the demise of his previous band, a metalcore outfit by the name of Reflux, guitarrist virtuoso Tosin Abasi accepted an offer from Prosthetic Records to record his own solo album.
The result was this extraordinary and unique instrumental technical/prog metal album that sounds unlike anything I've heard before, mainly due to Abasi's use of custom 7 & 8 string guitars. Abasi incorporates elements of technical metal, prog, jazz and many other styles of music into his compositions, but the result is very cohesive and, like all good music, better than the sum of its parts, and it's infused with his own personal touch and energy. In Steve Vai's own words "the future of creative, heavy, virtuoso guitar playing"
