Album Review

Whether you love or hate the genre of music he specializes in, you've got to give the man credit. Even during arguably the all-time low point for "guitar shredders" — the mid- to late '90s — Greg Howe stuck to his guns, issuing album after album of technically astounding guitar rock. And with the genre experiencing a resurgence circa the early 21st century, Howe is still all about showing off his six-string gymnastic ability, as evidenced by his 2008 release, Sound Proof. If you're seeking carefully constructed, melodic songs — move along. But, if you're into all-instrumental prog metal with guitar at the forefront, then Sound Proof should meet your requirements. Look no further than the album-opening "Emergency Exit," which has some very heavy '70s fusion elements (especially due to the Jan Hammer-esque keyboard doodling of David Cook), while other tracks such as the Steve Vai-esque "Morning View" and the funky "Side Note" are also standouts. Musical trends may come and go, but you always know what's in store with a new Greg Howe release, and this veteran shredder certainly doesn't disappoint with Sound Proof.

WoW!

I've been a fan of Greg's since his first instrumental cd in the late 80's and this cd kicks a** from start to finish. I really love the humor he injected in this project. It really comes thru in the music that he's having fun. This cd for me also sees the return of Greg really laying it down (all'a the early years). Write Me A Song into Child's Play are my favorites. Really feel the grove in Child's Play. Try it Mikey, you'll like it!

OMG!! GREG IS THE BEST!

I hope he adds all his albums to iTunes so more people can hear him. I own all his cds. I think he is the best guitar player there is!!

Loved it!!

This is probably one of Greg's best albums to date. If you like guitar and stunning musicianship this is a must get. Well worth the money.

Biography

Born: December 8, 1963 in Easton, PA

Genre: Rock

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

Easton, PA's Greg Howe was a breath of fresh air amidst the seemingly never-ending stream of harmonic minor guitar virtuosos pouring forth from the Shrapnel Records label in the late '80s. While other post-Yngwie Malmsteen players of the "shred guitar" genre were pursuing the dramatic neo-classical vein, Howe brought a sense of funk and groove to the table that was sorely needed. Howe paid his dues playing the Easton/Allentown club circuit in the '80s with the band Duke, featuring his brother Al...
