|Toomas Vanem: debut album "1"|
He has surrounded himself with awesome musicians, to bring his musical creations to life. On this album there are amazing musicians involved –"the groovy brothers" terrific drummer Andrus Lillepea and always excellent Henno Kelp on a bass. And yes, this is true- the absolutely fabulous Mr Stuart Hamm’s virtuosity is presented on tune called “Gravity of Eiffel Tower”!
The performances are stunning and the sound and production is huge. The music is unique and although it hits you immediately, there are lots of layers to discover with repeated listening.
It is almost unbelieveable how such heavy and powerful, sometimes even scary metal riffs with odd timings, can create a philosophical and meditative condition! The short legends of the songs on the CD’s cover booklet will help you to get even deeper touch with the music. The music of this album is a great example of a musician aiming to achieve the best he is capable of both in creativity and performance.
This first solo release from Toomas Vanem will really shake you up on many different levels and provide experiences you will wish to have repeatedly! Listen to this album if you are a fan of guitar virtuosity that focuses on creating memorable music!
