Kiko Loureiro: El Guajiro Rhythm Guitar Recordings

"EL Guajiro" from "Sounds of Innocence"
The new Kiko Loureiro album. Guitar recordings.
At 5by5 Studios Helsinki Finland

Kiko Loureiro - guitars
Virgil Donati - drums
Felipe Andreoli - bass
Ricardo Padilla - Percussion

El Guajiro Rhythm Guitar Recordings

The latest album is entitled Sounds Of Innocence and is 11 tracks of high calibre rock fusion compositions that blend influences from across the globe, amalgamated into Kilo's own unique style. The albums also features the world class drumming of with Virgil Donati and Felipe Andreoli

1. Awakening Prelude (0:54)
2. Gray Stone Gateway (3:58)
3. Conflicted (6:02)
4. Reflective (3:45)
5. El Guajiro (5:20)
6. Ray Of Life (4:03)
7. The Hymn (4:37)
8. Mae D'Agua (4:51)
9. Twisted Horizon (4:31)
10. A Perfect Rhyme (3:21)
11. Conflicted (Playback Version) (6:30)

The opening classical prelude segues into the twisted Gray Stone Gateway, a full on rocker, that combines power metal riffs and a more Brazilian feel back beat. Guitars in the solo are super fluid, legato, coloured with careful use of the bar, fading to a repeated lick that no doubt too a few days to master!

Conflicted is a more frenetic affair, with multi layered guitars with a some interesting fast paced echo guitar. The mid section is slower paced, have a more cinematic quality. In deed a number of the pieces, like the Hymn or Mae D'Agua on the album that have this quality, so I wonder if he he a film score in him somewhere.

El Guajiro shows south American root, this is the sort of thing that guitar players from Europe would find so difficult to write, but living and breathing these rhythms in his native Brazil, just come naturally,  adding another dimension to his writing skills and setting apart from others.

Overall the production is great and brings out Kiko's playing without losing the song melody.
I have no hesitation of recommending this album to guitar fans and players. There is so much music to be studied and listened to in depth. Favourite track Twisted Horizon... I still don't know how people are able to write and then play music of this degree of complexity and ingenuity and still keep it highly listenable. There is no doubt in my mind that Kiko is one of the guitar greats, being skilled in so many styles and this album is just another stepping stone on that journey to greatness.

I stand in awe of Kiko Loureiro, I don't know how he does what he does... but just thank god he does.

James Norbert Ivanyi: The DEAD sessions - Guitar Noize recommends

Thanks to Jon Bloomer from for spotting this one:

Tracking the leads for a band from Sydney, Australia called D.E.A.D.
Their debut album is set for release in 2013, and is sounding absolutely brutal. It was great fun playing on these tracks, and a welcome challenge.
Keep an eye out for D.E.A.D. They are great guys and their album will be huge! - You will also get to hear my playing on it! ;)
Help them out by sharing this video with your buddies if they are into metal. I (and they) would appreciate it very much, so thank's in advance. Don't forget to 'like' and leave a comment. Thank you very much for watching!
- James :)
