Album Review

Yngwie Malmsteen's second best album after Rising Force, Trilogy finds him delving wholeheartedly into fantastic, medieval themes and lyrical imagery. Yngwie's compositional skills are at their peak, and of all his albums, the lyrics here contribute the most to the overall feel of the music. The guitar solos, as always, are jaw-droppingly fast and technically demanding, but Malmsteen is still capable of playing them with force and fire behind them. Highlights include "Dark Ages," "You Don't Remember, I'll Never Forget," and the epic "Trilogy Suite Op:5."

Customer Reviews

Trilogy - Yngwie Malmsteen

Malmsteen has to be one of the most virtuoso guitarists around. His successful blend of heavy metal with Classical is quite astounding and gives his work a unique and satisfying sound. Magical!

Fastest finger first!

I bought this album just after it came out, a guitar fiend friend recommended some of his ealier stuff like Rising Force and The Alcatraz album he did. I'd never heard anything this fast before! As a classicaly trained musician myself, I could really appreciate the technical abilities of this guy. There a few quite good songs on it; Liar, Queen In Love and Fire. The stand out is the Trilogy Suite opus 5. Total showing off, but hey, the guy walks the walk and obviously puts the practice in. It might even have got four stars from me, but for the album cover. Yngwie slays the three horned beast with his trusty red Stat... I mean, I ask you!!

Neo Classical gem!

I'd rate this album having some of Yngwie's best constructed solos and spontaneous, this is reflected in his live solos from the Trilogy era which are amongst my favorite. I wish Jeff Scott Soto could have been on this album but it wasn't to be, sadly. Trilogy Suite Op:5 is still a milestone piece for Mr.Malmsteen with the dark commodious bridges and hellish intro.This was of course prior to Odyssey which was a big change for Yngwie's playing and tone, song-writing. I feel this album preserves all the Neo- Classicism and Bach n Roll of Marching out but with a slightly more commercial edge without being too poptastic like Odyssey.


Born: 30 June 1963 in Stockholm, Sweden

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Yngwie Malmsteen is arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the '80s. Combining a dazzling technique honed over years of obsessive practice with a love for such classical composers as Bach, Beethoven, and Paganini, Malmsteen's distinctively Baroque, gothic compositional style and lightning-fast arpeggiated solos rewrote the book on heavy metal guitar. His largely instrumental debut album, Rising Force, immediately upped the ante for aspiring hard rock guitarists...
