Black Utopia
The new CD from Derek Sherinian is a powerful guitar-oriented yet melodic instrumental heavy rock album with very subtle arrangements that include fusion and classical elements as well. Uptempo metal sounds alternate with beautiful balladesque passages. Besides Simon Phillips and Steve Lukather a whole bunch of fantastic musicians have contributed to this album.
