Unfortunately, he was poorly packaged from the get-go -- back in 2009. If he has been properly promoted from the beginning, this would be his third or fourth commercial album, instead of his second -- funded by fans through Patreon.
Popped it in the player in my car and have not been able to take it out....for days now....it's THAT good.
Steffen Schackinger should be as well known as Joe Bonamassa or Eric Clapton; his skills, tone and technique are not only amazing but awe-inspiring.
I heard Mr. Schackinger say his biggest early guitar influence was Mark Knopfler, but I hear touches of Steve Morse, Jeff Beck, a bit of Joe Satriani
and maybe Phil Keaggy. But suffice to say, Steffen Schackinger is no copy cat chameleon, he has a style all his own.
His forte is electric guitar instrumental, so I was surprised to hear a vocal track at the end of Fire Dance.
At first listen I thought the lyrics a bit corny....the second listen I found myself later humming the tune...the third and forth listen I was paying attention and realized there was not only a good song in there, but there was a flame-thrower of a blistering guitar lead in the break and tasty licks throughout.
Not sure how I'm gonna get this CD out of my car deck now....I may need to put Steffen's other CD in.
