||An interesting name for an interesting band.
is an all instrumental band that basically shreds up a storm. For
people that are not familiar with shredding music, its your typical
heavy metal that basically has solos all the way through the songs.
So there is no doubt that these guys can play. They have their own
style of shredding, different then other soloist like Yngwie Malmsteen,
Greg Howe or George Bellus. They are a little more groove orientated
and the other bands members, bassist and drummer seem to be more involved
then your typical shredding band. The only thing that sets these Phoenix,
Arizona natives is their production quality. Bands on Shrapnel Records
such as for mentioned Greg Howe or George Bellus have the supreme
recording ability that leaves Frankenshred a little behind because
of the slight sloppyness of this album. But if you are really into
instrumental shredding bands you will like this CD. You can get more
info at their website at http://www.frankenshred.webprovider.com
or listen to some of their sound files at http://www.guitar9.com.
The band have played before Tony McAlpine, Lynch Mob and Sacred Reich,
so they are definitely appreciated by some amazing musicians. Maybe
in the near future Frankenshred will stake their claim on the metal
scene but for now all they need to do is create more music to be produced
by Shrapnel Records.
