Editorial Reviews

John 5 is known as one of the best modern shredders around (2007 winner Best Shred Album of the Year for "The Devil Knows My Name" in Guitar World Reader's Poll). He's even likened to the Page or Hendrix of this generation. He's worked with Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie, David Lee Roth, Leah Andreone, 2wo, Meat Loaf, Paul Stanley, Ryan Downe, Hazy Dreams, and Rodger Carter. This is his fourth solo effort.

Absolute shred. This guy is a machine. Best at VERY LOUD volume,it just peels your face back. I'm an "old head", almost 50 and all I can say is that this guy is BANGIN'! Not a good choice for romantic background music, or driving your grandma to church.
Horror hype aside, you just can't ignore this guy's ability.

This is new instrumental shred at it's finest! As the guitarist for Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie , John 5 didn't have much room to show what he can really do. On his latest solo album Requiem, he comes at you with both guns blazing. It's the best "Shred Guitar" album I've heard in a very long time -- kinda like Halloween on acid and crystal meth without feeling like crap for a week afterwards!!

John Lowery's (stage name: John 5) first three solo albums vary in quality, and Requiem is somewhere in the middle. With Vertigo arguably ranked at the bottom of the ladder, and still a great album regardless, John's fourth effort probably ranks one rung above his first. There just isn't anything here that he hasn't done in his previous solo efforts. He played around with more instruments in the past, had a few guest musicians, and there was sense of a need of appreciation for his chops. Now it's like he's simply trying to throw together a solid set of songs using the same styles of old. This works, but we've heard this before. A welcomed consistency is that the songs are performed with feeling and maturity, which makes for a better album. Has John put out a fourth just because Rob Zombie was on hold? Maybe not, but it sounds somewhat forced.

With a new Zombie album on the horizon and John once again on board, Requiem should unexpectedly hold off fans for a moment. Songs such as "Heretic's Fork" and "The Judas Cradle" are dark, eerie, and sound quite similar to the new Zombie style. Obviously there are screaming solos scattered about that aren't typical in Zombie material, but the correlation in general is there. Tommy Clufetos (also of Rob Zombie) handles drums throughout the album, too.

It may not be noticeable at first, but some of the songs fit together as the album goes along. Imagine a hurricane passing overhead - "Heretic's Fork" ends with the same heavy riff it started with and sort of drags into "Noisemaker's Fife," which soon becomes calm, clean playing - the eye of the storm. Then the riff picks up again and the hurricane rumbles on.

Once Again J5 proves that he can play anything. Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Modern Rock... very innovative guitarist. Technical playing, but with feeling... does not come off like a "Swedish Robot." Every album holds something new!

I became a fan of John 5 when a friend introduced me to his music about 5 years ago. I collect CDs of the bands/music I like and this CD does not disappoint.

John5 is one of the best out there today. Not just metal. This man is versitile. Not only fast but doesn't miss a note.

I am not musically talented, however, I do appreciate talent. John 5 is diverse across the spectrum from blue grass and steel to hard rock and Telecaster metal. I appreciate guitarists keeping instrumental instead of enlisting vocals. It mostly worked for Yngwie but not every guitarist may pull it off. While many reviews made by knowledgeable wannabees will pick this and that apart keep in mind John 5 is produced and successfully part of Rob Zombie while they're at home copying his stuff trying to make it big. I'm just saying.
