Interesting and captivating are two words that best define the work on Genocide, the second instrumental solo album by Brazilian shred metal guitarist Carlos Lichman. Lichman's complex shredding has been a central part of the progressive but powerful thrash edge often attributed to his work's trademark sound since his first band in 1996. He's been responsible for some of the most awe-inspiring riffs modern metal has ever heard. Taking the classic techniques, he learned from listening to legends such as Jason Becker, Marty Friedman and Yngwie Malmsteen as a teen, and, applying his own ingenuity, has carved his own niche and created an instantly recognizable style. A distinctive mix of bone-splintering aggression, supreme melodies and spark flying chops. Instrumental Guitar (Electric (Heavy)/Shred/Heavy Metal), total running time, 41:33
