Matt Chanway

.
The fact that most of these tracks clocking in at over six minutes, should give you a clue it's an all-instrumental work. Matt Chanway is a master guitarist, and his chosen musical style is progressive metal. He's based in Vancouver, BC, and received a guitar performance diploma from London College of Music.

Chanway also plays lead guitar for Assimilation, a Vancouver thrash band. But this six-song release is all guitar, all the time. Backed by bass and drum programming, Chanway plays with impressive dexterity. Most of these songs are played fast. So, even though it's a solo instrumental release, there are no faux-classical or jazz explorations.

As talented as Chanway is, his self-titled album is not exactly 'listening music.' Unless you're a guitarist yourself, you may have difficulty appreciating what Chanway can do with six strings. In fact, all the frantic playing may just make you a little on edge after listening all the way through. It is by no means easy listening. Then again, it wasn't at all too easy to create.
