4.0 out of 5 stars Mattsson's most ambitious work to date August 6, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Lars Eric Mattsson is one of Finland's best guitar players who has been active in the music business since 1985 playing on lots of albums and releasing solo discs as well. He goes by his full name when he puts out solo releases, and uses just the Mattsson handle when he combines the services of vocalists in his recordings. His solo albums are more on the instrumental spectrum utilising lots of technically advanced guitar solos with complex harmonies, whereas with Mattsson he explores a more defined and unique style of music. His guitar playing shows restraint, allowing the vocalists to deliver the lyrics effectively.

War is Lars Eric Mattsson's third album under the Mattsson moniker and it combines plenty of different vocalists' impressive work. This is a strictly "non-fictional vocal opera" featuring Lance King (ex-Balance of Power, Pyramaze), Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen, Ring of Fire), Irene Jansen (Star One, Ayreon), Andre Vuurboom (ex-Sun Caged), and Bjorn Jansson (Tears of Anger, Imaginery). The only guest musician on the album is Vitalij Kuprij adding in some exceptional keyboard solos on half of the tracks. Lars Eric Mattsson, on the other hand, plays all guitars, bass, and keyboards (except the solos recorded by Kuprij) with impressive results. Special mention goes to his keyboard work: Mattsson employs samples, genuine sounding orchestral synths (though there is also a real orchestra on one track) as well as a multitude of quirky sounds to add more atmosphere to the songs. Eddie Sledgehammer and Yoshi Watanabe provide the drum and percussion rhythms through the album.

As the title reveals, the album is about the shortcomings and atrocities of war with references to the crisis in the Middle East.
