There are instrumental and also vocal music, and as always, many guitar solos within the songs.

Nine will be released on October 14th 2022

Happy to announce my 9th full album will be released on October 14th, 2022.

There are 10 tracks, which are mostly progressive metal with Middle Eastern influences, and 2 closer to acoustic and fusion style. I have explored some new guitar technics which are reflected on riffs and solos. I believe those will be interesting to shred guitar enthusiasts.

As always, due to life events there were a few gaps in the production. As you may know, music is not my only career, and I needed to focus on art direction and design for a while. Now I feel relieved that I completed it after 4 years!

The album will be in digital format only, and I’m not planning to release any physical CDs. I will post short videos and excerpts from the album soon, so stay tuned!
