Album Review

The success of Nirvana's Nevermind in late 1991 left many '80s metal guitarists out in the cold, and Malmsteen was no exception. After leaving Polydor, he signed to Elektra and released the one-hour-plus Fire and Ice. The record is most successful when Malmsteen returns to the heavy baroque influence of his early work, and there are some fine longer compositions here that will please hardcore Yngwie fans. "Cry No More," in particular, contains an arrangement of Bach's "Badinerie"...The record also contains...stabs at radio rock, such as the single "Teaser"...Playing for a radio audience was not Malmsteen's strength, and with the winds of alternative-rock change blowing, Elektra dropped him after only one release.

Customer Reviews

Truly a masterpiece

An excellent album by a truly exceptional guitarist I strongly recomend this album

Good album, but not good Yngwie Album...

If I had no reference of previous Yngwie albums, I would give this four or five stars. But I have to say, this certainly isn't his best stuff.

Surprisingly Very Good

When I first saw this album I bought it on impulse because I had all Yngwie's other classic albums and secondly because the cover is really cool looking. Anyway I found that is album is very good and is way better than Eclipse and Marching Out. Best songs: Cry No More, Fire and Ice, Teaser, and Dragonfly.

Biography

Born: June 30, 1963 in Stockholm, Sweden

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...
