  • BOMBARDIER - Andy Schools (Interview)

    Bombardier makes beautiful instrumental post-rock. They have a progressive sound that fans of Explosions in the Sky, Mono or Maserati will find both familiar and challenging. The band's leader and guitarist Andy was also one of my first friends in...

  • PHARGO. - Rende's (Review)

    Chill Day” is a great tune with a chorus that gets stuck in your head. It’s fuzzy in all the right ways. One of the best instrumental tracks I’ve heard in awhile is “Thanks, Kojima” with a guitar line that sounds like an airplane taking off in the best...

  • SO HIDEOUS - Laurestine (Review)

    on the life of the main character and also sets the tone for the rest of the record. “Hereafter” is a predominantly instrumental bridge piece (it’s over 6 minutes long though). It starts off with guitar and cello before the full orchestra comes in....

  • Lou DiBello- Heat Wave

    by vocalist Carsten Lizard Schulz, drummer Bobby Whiles, and keyboardist Tim Rixstine. The album opens with spectacular instrumental tune, “Heat Wave”, which is part Hurricane and part Foghat. I rarely care for instrumental music, but DiBello actually...

  • TEEN CULT - Teen Cult (Review)

    Cult is wearing their hair slicked back while eating at the drive in. Then we jump into “Cross City” which is a rocking instrumental surf jam. The vocals are back on “Grady” a slithering slippery number that sounds like the soundtrack to a horror film...

  • Operation: Mindcrime- A New Reality

    lines and let’s us have his true voice for a moment. It’s a fascinating vocal approach and adds a lot to the song. The instrumental ballad “A Guitar in Church” is another moment I really dig. Normally, I’m not much for instrumentals but the synthesizers...

  • DRAGONFORCE - Reaching Into Infinity (Review)

    two (at least in respect to the band’s past few releases). “Reaching Into Infinity” opens with a minute and a half long instrumental prelude: snare drums and twin guitars in a gradual buildup which releases in the flash that is “Ashes of the Dawn” which...

  • Jonathan Cavier- Blue Room

    fully embraces everything great about the 80’s Pop scene (keyboards, catchy as hell, and horns!) and partly because it’s instrumental. You just don’t hear many instrumentals on Pop albums and this tune will make you wonder why. Cavier also fully...

  • CRIS MARTIN - Rock Dawn (Music Review)

    Tower,” features Blaze Bayley and is, in all honesty, not very good. The album quickly recovers though with a series of instrumentals that are almost mesmerizing. “Overrun” has a really bright feel that is Pop Rock-ish but the talking guitars are...

  • YOUTH FUNERAL - Heavenward (Review)

    stretch their post-hardcore muscles and stretch into almost sprawling territory like some early Roadside Monument. The instrumental “Bloom” is a highlight of the latter style and is one of my favorite tracks. They even flirt with jam band territory on...

  • EMERSON, LAKE, AND PALMER - Trilogy (Review)

    as brilliant as any Progressive piece ever penned, playing like an intricate Rock Opera with the bareboned “Fugue” piano instrumental placed between, allowing the listener time to reorganize their blown mind. The song that benefits the most here,...

  • DARLING VALLEY (Interview)

    this is the epitome of the collaboration between the four of us that went into this record. I wrote this one entirely instrumental first and we then came up with the idea to visit the lyrics and melodies from all different perspectives. So Jordan came...

  • WHITECHAPEL - Mark Of The Blade (Review)

    transcend all labels, creating an Extreme Metal anthem for bad days along the way. The huge guitars that dominate the instrumental “Brotherhood” make for another excellent moment. The harmonious, battle-cry guitars seamlessly go from progressive to...

  • COMBICHRIST - This is Where Death Begins (Review)

    a slightly different place by allowing its electronic stomp to take over. It’s “Black Tar Dove (Part 2)” (“Part 1” is an instrumental intro) that takes the cake for me though. This song is un-friggin-believable! It’s dark and aggressive and pissed off,...

  • SOURVEIN - Aquatic Occult (Review)

    forefront though with its powerful guitar work and back alley grit. The album kicks off with “Tempest (of Desire),” an instrumental that leads into the Sabbath fueled “Avian Dawn.” The band grooves right on with their murky, mystical fuzz front and...

  • MYRATH - Legacy (Review)

    Trump’s enigmatic hair and what the Kardashians are up to. But I digress. The album kicks off with an atmospheric little instrumental intro entitled “Jasmine”, which introduces you to the exotic flair that this band is so good at. The percussion and...

  • SHOWBREAD - Showbread is Showdead (Review)

    Days: The Fetus Develops Teeth” shows another element of the Showbread mix as their first (and more than likely only) instrumental track. Never ones to shy away from controversy with the mainstream church, Showbread takes another punch with their...

  • FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE - King (Review)

    becomes haunting as hell without losing the heavy elements that so often get lost in the mix when bands do this. The instrumental piano track, “King,” takes “Syphilis” out on a more intimate note and closes the album out in surprising fashion. There is...

  • BARONESS - Purple (Review)

    And then comes “Try To Disappear” which, I kid you not, brings to mind the emo-core of the early 2000's. “Fugue” a brief instrumental which is mellow, and jazzy, with wicked lead guitar work leads into quite possibly the greatest example of what...

  • CHINESE FOOTBALL - Chinese Football (Review)

    is under 5:00. Each progression and riff is given plenty of room to breathe and build. There’s nearly three minutes of instrumental in Track 3 before the vocals appear but it never feels labored--there's so many ideas packed into those minutes. Although...
