Tony MacAlpine

"Collection: The Shrapnel Years"

The Story
Centered on guitarist Tony MacAlpine's neo-classical style that established him as one of the most innovative musicians of our time, "Collection: The Shrapnel Years" is a must-have for fans of high-performance guitar playing as it contains some of the most phenomenal solos in Shrapnel's rich guitar history. MacAlpine writes, "This collection of songs represents a musically fun period for me and the musicians that were associated with its development had much to do with that. When listening to this CD, one can imagine the hard work and practice it must have taken to create these pieces. However, after the last chord was played and the last mix was mastered, the reasons we undertook this task became clear."
