Electric Babylon is Denver-based guitarist Danny Masters' fiery, mostly instrumental CD (5 of the 14 tracks are vocal numbers), featuring metal-inflected guitar maelstroms, dynamic displays of technical wizardry, sensitive blues magic--and that's just for openers! Produced and engineered by Four Estate guitarist Dave Beegle, the sound quality throughout Electric Babylon is superb, allowing maximum enjoyment of tracks such as the Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute, "Texas Wind", the heavy hard rock and ripping, jagged riffs of "Black Diamond Run" and the Middle-Eastern inspired textures in "A Christian In India". Fans of modern guitar playing should check out Danny Masters and the intensity he brings to the forefront on Electric Babylon.
