The Year of 1996
is taken outside
Sweden is quite well-known for it´s many high quality-guitarists. Prepare yourself to add yet another high quality-bender to that list - MATHIAS HOLM.
Just don´t expect a full-time shredder that knows
nothing about feeling and subtlety. Mathias has been brought up listening
to players like Al Di Meola, Vinnie Moore and Mike Oldfield, giving him
quite a broad perspective of influences.
In 1995 Mathias decided to put his songs on record and
knowing how hard it is for an unknown solo-guitarist to get a deal, he decided
to record the album on his own.
Mathias has been compared to the likes of Vinnie Moore,
Yngwie Malmsteen and Al Di Meola and when listening to Mathias album, you
can´t but see why.
Mathias mixes smooth, sensitive notes with fast fret-board runners in a highly intriguing mix. This and the fact that he has the ability write great listenable music makes him a respectable musician.
If someone gives this guy the break he deserves, he can go far, very far!
