Instrumental 3-piece Progressive Metal band w/ 3 or 4 records...
I really love At Vance's version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, especially "Summer."
GAH!! Forgot about that one also.
Best thing that Metallica did was an instrumental, imo: Orion
Stride - Music Machine
John Petrucci & Jordan Rudess - An Evening w/John Petrucci & Jordan Rudess
Patrick Rondat - Amphibia
.....these are good instrumental CD's.
Some of my favorite instrumental tracks:
Pain of Salvation: Dryad of the Woods
Payne's Gray: Unison
Payne's Gray: Dream Sequence
Riverside: The Same River (it has a few lyrics towards the end)
Rage-Unity. Thats another killer
For some wicked guitar-driven instrumentals, I would reccommend T.D. Clark. He's from the Chicago area, and he has released three independent solo albums. I liken him to a more technical Joe Satriani. His albums are great, but it's even more fun to see him live. He'll come off the stage and have a conversation with you while ripping into a crazy solo. Anyone into high-energy shred guitar should check him out.
Stay metal. Never rust.
Reallly loving their latest, Carving Desert Canyons.
Sixteen-plus minutes of total bliss. Next to "epic metal instrumental" in the dictionary resides...this song.
It'd be a stretch to call it a 'metal' instrumental, but it's always been one of my absolute faves from Rush.
I still pull out Tony McAlpine's - Maximum Security from time to time. I had forgotten about it for many years till a thread here reminded me, but it's back in rotation...just not quite as much as in the 80s....
Payne's Gray are amazing, Riding the Shantak is one of my favourite instrumentals of all time!! Unison is amazing aswell
Enchant ( Mettle Man ) is an amazing instrumental from the album Time Lost
I think you are my hero lol!!
My thoughts exactly, I thought about listing some Rush but was thinking more along the lines of riff heavy instrumentals with shred-style solos; those Rush instrumentals are some of my favorites as well but not exactly metal; excellent though!!!
Still bring this one out frequently, one of my all time favs along with Joey Tafolla's OUT OF THE SUN and Vinnie Moore's MIND'S EYE...
the entire third disc of the new DT album
I was going to mention Marcel, so it was rather cool to see him linked up. He also has two solo CDs out, besides Lemur Voice, Sun Caged and his various guest work. Colour Journey is half instrumental (I sing on two/play piano on one of them) - it's all over the map stylistically, as he wanted to focus on his song writing across a broad spectrum. Before that is Guitartalk, which would also be right up your alley, Mystic.
Love this one!
Here are a couple from the archives:
Flotsam & Jetsam The Jones
Dream Theater Ytse Jam
Hi Colleen, You are great Colour Journey and Marcel and friends, good to see you on the forum
