Guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani’s new album has not only met, but raised the bar set by his previous albums.
The guitarist’s 14th studio album, “Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards,” brings back Satriani’s signature sound after two weaker albums: “Super Colossal” in 2006, and “Professor Satchafunkilus and the Musterion of Rock” in 2008.
This album features no vocals, simple drums and basic bass riffs, but extraordinary ’80s metal guitar.
All tracks on this album consist solely of guitar backed by a rhythm section of drums, bass and keyboard.
