Celebrated Italian guitarist Gianluca Ferro (Doomsword, Time Machine, Heart Of Sun) offers his second solo album, 'Unheimlich.'

Taking distinct influences from the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, and John Petrucci, prolific Italian guitarist Gianluca Ferro has crafted another winner in his increasingly impressive discography.

Having taken part in progressive metal bands such as Time Machine, Heart of Sun, and Arkhe (among others), Gianluca has been constantly proving his worth as a multi-faceted and talented guitarist. His latest solo album, Unheimlich, shows him in his most comfortable and confident state in his entire career. Taking his influences from the shred-metal scene and seamlessly melding it together with progressive metal and jazz fusion, Gianluca Ferro has created a one-of-a-kind prog metal album that I'd encourage all fans of instrumental music to check out. While I do have a few knocks regarding the playing time, there's more than enough great material here to satisfy me and (I would
imagine) most other prog metal fans.

The music here is a mixture of progressive rock/metal, jazz fusion, shred metal, and even touches of instrumental thrash metal. Although this doesn't sound like something that's new, Gianluca Ferro manages to combine these sounds into an instrumental mix that's simultaneously enjoyable and original. One thing that impressed me more than anything else on Unheimlich was the sheer technical capabilities of Gianluca Ferro. The man can handle emotional passages like Yngwie Malmsteen, complex time signatures like John Petrucci, and shredded passages like Steve Vai, resulting in not only an impressive sound, but an overall well-rounded musician. His backing cast is equally impressive, featuring excellent musicianship in all departments. Compositionally, Unheimlich can be a bit unfocused at times, and the near-70 minute playing time doesn't help. It's simply too long, and, as a result, a bit of filler sneaks its way into the album. The best songs here are, in my opinion, the terrific "Bipolar Zombie" and the fast-paced opening "Olympia's Strangely Mechanical Actions". In terms of production, Unheimlich is also great, and boasts a terrific and professional sound.

This one comes highly recommended to all fans of instrumental jazz- influenced prog metal!
