Description

On 2004, Patrik Carlsson has been described as the best guitarist to come out of Sweden since Yngwie Malmsteen and Mattias IA Eklundh! Heavily influenced by Steve Vai, but with a truly original style and a good sense for writing quality songs, on Phraseology Carlsson includes his futuristic tribute to Jimi Hendrix ("Jimi's Tribute"), an ode to Malmsteen ("The Survivor"), a seven-string, rhythmically interesting and creatively melodic slower number ("Still Believe"), a slow ballad ("Aeryn Sun"), his take on circus music ("Epsilon Indi"), an incredibly technical ripper full of tricks ("High Pitch"), a Steve Lukather tribute ("Mosquito"), and even a commercial melody ("Guardian Angel"). If you like wah-wah riffage, heavy shred, and overall intense/terrifying guitar work check out Patrik Carlsson's Phraseology.
