THE ARISTOCRATS picture
The three members of the band all had their individual reputations and followings. Guthrie was an underground internet guitar hero (those YouTube clips convinced lots of folks), with a highly acclaimed solo instrumental album under his belt, 2006′s Erotic Cakes. Bryan was a respected touring vet with Steve Vai, Dethklok, and Mike Keneally, and also had three solo albums out. And Marco was a veritable superstar drummer/clinician, having played with artists ranging from Adrian Belew, to Eddie Jobson’s UKZ, to death metal outfit Necrophagist…and had over ten solo albums out.

Separated by thousands of miles (Govan in London, Beller in Nashville, Minnemann in San Diego) and occupied by numerous separate commitments, the guys began swapping mp3′s of the songs for the 6-tune set. Each member contributed two tunes. It was late December of 2010, and NAMM was only a few weeks away. The material was difficult and there was a lot

I'm a fanboy of Guthrie Govan. I think he is one of the best guitarists of our century, maybe the best. His melodies are so strong that you can't call him a shredder. On this album, he shows us that he can play like a true jazz guitarist. He's also so good at rock, blues and even metal. So he gets the music on a crazy mood by a rock riff of his kind sometimes, or just shredding like hell. But his control over melodies and notes makes you love his shredding. So yes, Guthrie Govan is a guitarist with every good quality that I can think off. He's hardworking, loving the music itself, and so talented. On this album, you can experience everything that I just wrote. He's got even better since his solo album "Erotic Cakes" of 2006.

Marco Minnemann is an amazing drummer. I didn't know that he's so good at jazz drumming, but he is. And he also contributes highly to the harder sound of the album, where the music goes rock/metal from jazz. Bryan Beller is also great. His melodies sound unique, and work so well with the sound of the album.

With all this great players, one don't expect a synergy like this. But these three talented men are made for each other! They love and dream the same music. They put out an incredible piece of jazz/rock fusion. Highly recommended.
