GANN - THE DEVIL'S BEEN BUSY
Metal To Infinity
always love it when I read a guitar teacher plays Metal. It proves, once more,
that Heavy Metal musicians are the best amongst the modern music! Oh yes, and
all those ignorant people keep on believing Metal is from a lesser kind, we're
children of a lesser god! No, we're not and we'll have tons of materials to
prove it but why everybody keeps on denying us? Everybody? No, that's not
exactly true because there are millions of Metal fans all over the world and
this since several decades.
me start again and tell you I adore guitar teachers playing Metal.
Victor Gann is such a man, unknown to me but he's a professional teacher,
performer, instructor, song writer... Since my wife is learning how to play the
guitar I took the instrument in my hands myself, trying it out... Mission
impossible! Anyway it makes me worship these shredders even more! ''The Devil's
Been Busy'' is the first album of this man and I was impressed by
it since the very first tones. This is good swinging Melodic shredding
guitar music! Victor Gann isn't up to show how many notes he can play in
three seconds but he makes this kind of Hard Rocking instrumental music
entertaining. In vein of Satriani of Vai he delivers one after another great
track with the solo guitar weaved into them. The love for his wife and daughter
gave the man a lot of inspiration, just check the name of the tracks. As a
matter of fact it declares why most songs are so emotional.
don't hear me say Victor Gann is exceptional in what he's doing, this road has
been taken many times before by many guitarists but it was a long time ago I
enjoyed a Guitar CD so much. Victor Gann knows to touch the strings on an
emotional way, just the way I like it! I suppose his wife Shannon and daughter
Victoria gave him a lot of inspiration, two song s were named after them.
problem with this kind of albums is that they sound similar, even boring, after
a while but that isn't the problem with ''The Devil's Been Busy''. On the other
hand I am pitying (again) that there are no vocals added. Why? Because this man
is a fantastic song writer and he knows how to touch one man's soul...
