“Making of” the album

Selected for Guitar Player magazine’s 50th anniversary issue as a noteworthy album of the last fifty years. (The list also includes, for example, Master of Puppets, Nevermind, Rage Against the Machine, Surfing With the Alien, and Passion and Warfare.)

“Burning of Ideals (A Date Which Will Live in Infamy)” selected for Guitar Player magazine’s upcoming compilation album of the best instrumental tracks of 2017.

“Now you could suggest the days of instrumental metal albums are a thing from the past with Steve Vai and Joe Satriani as strongholders. LoNero proves [that] wrong. Their so called ‘Guitarcore’ is exactly filling a gap that was never filled before…the instrumental hardrock/metal album of the year so far…”

“I wish I knew where music like this comes from, because it’s mind-blowing. These guys deserve to be famous and they are a monument to musical ability, technical proficiency, and originality.”
