Speaking as a guitarist, I list Jeff Loomis as one of my greatest insprirations. He has made some amazing contributions to Nevermore, and he has taken shred solos from a wall of extremely fast notes to something atmospheric, even melodic. Thats at least how I percieve his work. Id quite like to see him back in Nevermore, but Im also quite happy he is releasing solo material.

Album Sampler

Some awesome stuff, mainly the less "metal" sounding songs. His shred stuff does kinda sound all the same after a while.

Excuse my ignorance, but who is Ihsahn? His clean vocals sound good from what I hear in that sample.

Sounds awesome. It takes a truly badass guitar player to make shred interesting, and Jeff managed to do just that for the majority of the first album. Based on The Ultimatum and that sampler clip, this new one might be even better.

There's no-one out there right now making better music in this vein than Jeff.

I was kind of disappointed with the Ultimatum video, but the samples with vocals made me want this album again.

Jeff needs to use different stuff (gear) from song to song.. just sayin'. The song wif Ihsahn sounds killer and who can't <3 Ms Rhoades.

Ihsahn's harsh vocals have been awful since the last Emperor album. He did a pretty good job on those cleans, though.

it's amazing to me how jeff's personality and uniqueness exponential decrease as his skills increase.

this pretty much just sounds like a remake of every Shrapnel Records shred record from the 80s, but on seven strings.

though I guess that old nevermore fans aren't really his target audience anymore and he's moved on to kids who argue about tone and pickups on forums all day and masturbate to videos of harmonic minor sweep picking.

Exactly. Come on, this is fast food music. It has no substance.

It's no different than a Korn album in the sense that it's instant gratification music.

No, because I don't care.

It's my opinion that this blows and Jeff hasn't made anything solid since Enemies of Reality.

I'm pretty disappointed. Sounds pretty stock. Sad... I wish now more than ever that he had stayed in Nevermore.

I understand you haven't gotten over him leaving Nevermore, but making a fool of yourselves is not the answer.

They are so fucking right. And I'm a shredhead and shrapnel fan myself! Though I wouldn't go so far to call it fast food music or compare it to Korn, but he really changed his style to "look at this new version of the same song with even more fast licks".

btw: one of the best instrumental records of the last couple of years was Steve Smythe's Esseness Project, so much better than Zero Order Phase, but noone seemed to care about it...
