A guitarist of real talent and vision.

Best known as the leader of Acacia Avenue, Decoy, Fatal Force and Section A, Torben Enevoldsen is now also the latest to take on the six string mantle in the mighty and back on form again Fate; the guitar master having played a strong role on the recently released 'If Not For The Devil' and its predecessor 'Ghosts From The Past'. However before all of those Hard Rockin', melodic talkin' acts, Enevoldsen put his name behind two cracking guitar instrumental albums, 'Guitarisma' (1998) and 'Heavy Persuasion' (2000), before an equally impressive third foray 'Flying Solo' appeared in 2005. Therefore a follow up to this trio of interesting and well constructed albums has long been overdue and with the ever busy songwriter and guitarist teaming up with the impressive Grooveyard Records for solo effort number four, 'Above And Beyond', there's already a fair bet that it won't disappoint.

And so it proves, 'Above...' confirms Enevoldsen as a guitarist of real talent and vision. This guy can play and he isn't afraid to let fly with speed and precision when the mood takes him. However what Enevoldsen has constructed here is a heavier, more in your face take on the sort of attack Joe Satriani has thrived on for years. Great melodies, memorable hooks and riffs aplenty are what greet you; grabbing the attention, keeping it firmly within grasp and refusing to let go right across the ten tracks presented.

The sharp and focused 'Dreaming' is anything but, jabbing through a meaty riff, with the fret flurries being amongst the fieriest on show, 'True Blue' brings the same intensity but through a much more restrained approach, while opener 'Sonic Confusion' slams Satriani into a full on riff that Friedman era Megadeth would have pulverised with. The results are an album that guitar aficionados need to hear, while cleverly, those with more song based tastes won't be left out in the cold either. Not many guitarists in this field deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Satriani, Vai or Timmons. Torben Enevoldsen does.
