Brett Garsed: Dark Matter 5 star review

Whereas some Prog isn’t “metal” enough, and much Metal lacks Prog’s imagination, Dark Matter encapsulates the best of both worlds and stands alone as neither Metal or Prog. If I had to compare it to the work of another musician, I wouldn’t hesitate to put it on the same level as Joe Satriani’s recent work. But where Satch is recognizable and even somewhat predictable to a degree, Garsed is more daring and unconventional. Be it the use of jazzy chord structures or jumping bean arrangements, or any number of other unexpected twists and turns in the course he maps, Garsed isn’t afraid to go out on a limb and we are the lucky benefactors of his musical courage. This is bold, brave stuff, rife with adventurous arrangements, tones both cool and crass, and fret-burning solo work, and you aren’t likely to hear many guitar records like this. more

Brett Garsed My new album "Dark Matter" will be available from sometime next week. We'll be setting up a "pre-order" option at but it'll probably be at least a week till I have copies. If you'd like a personally autographed copy then my website is the place to go. Thanks to everyone for all the support, it is MUCH appreciated!

Brett Garsed solo from 1988. A blast from the past with the mullet to prove it! This was from the John Farnham concert tour with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra filmed in Melbourne, Australia in front of about 15,000 people.
