Album Review

Although he can shred with the best of 'em, David T. Chastain has largely flown under the radar. That said, he's certainly known within the guitar community (as he's received a fair amount of coverage in instrument magazines since the '80s); if you're not a metal guitarist, you may not know of Chastain.

While some guitarists of the "instrumental metal" genre tend to be a bit one-dimensional in their approach, Chastain manages to mix things up a bit here, by touching upon songs that are blues-based ("Sounds Cool to Me," "Keeper of Tomorrow," etc.), as well as tracks that are comparable to Joe Satriani ("Burning Passions"), Steve Vai ("Dancing with the Devil's Mistress"), and even a tribute to AC/DC's brother guitar tandem (the appropriately titled "Hats Off to Angus and Malcolm"). He may not exactly be revolutionizing rock guitar, but David T. Chastain certainly has the chops to hold his own against the aforementioned metal/rock guitarists, as heard throughout Rock Solid Guitar.

Chastain has been slugging it out for just as long, yet never achieved the same level of recognition as the aforementioned instrumentalists. With his mastery of the six-string and talent for effortlessly reeling off lightning-fast neo-classical licks, Chastain has been releasing albums since the mid-'80s,...
