Quick, how many bands can mix fusion, heavy metal and reggae into one tune ("Uncle Bob")? You found one? OK, how about blues, shred and metal ("The Beauty Of Simplicity"). There must be something in the water in Sweden, because a lot of instrumental artists and bands there just 'get it'. Swedish guitarist John Huldt heads up Dynamic, who submitted a four song instrumental CD-R demo, entitled Rules Do Not Apply!, chock full of Huldt's amazingly supple lead work, rapid-fire attack, and slippery soloing. Then you have the band's incredible compositional and production style, shifting gears, tempos, genres, tones, sound levels and more at a moment's notice. In short, Dynamic (with Johan Rydberg on drums and Anders Lindskog on bass) is truly dynamic - truth in advertising at last! Hopefully a full-length, instrumental CD is in the works for the future, because you have to hear this.
John started his musical career on piano at the age of ten under heavy pressure from his well-meaning mom, who said he would appreciate it when he grew older (which he of course did). He played the piano until age 14, when the huge Nirvana/grunge wave hit Sweden and John became more interested in playing guitar instead of piano. He got his first electric guitar for a Christmas present and started a Nirvana cover band with a friend. About a year later he was hooked on metal bands like Slayer and the death metal scene. John played in a lot of local metal bands and when he started in college he discovered Yngwie Malmsteen - which was what made John want to become really good as a guitarist. Later on he heard Steve Vai and Van Halen, which also had a huge effect on his playing. Today, John is trying to broaden his views on music and trying to learn different styles of music, and of course become a better technical player as well.
Dynamic is continuing to write and record new songs for a full-length CD.
