An acid rock/ hard rock album with many blues influences in the power trio and jam band format. Featuring many extended, distorted and intense electric guitar solos.
Glen Heald's first solo album is primarily heavy guitar based blues rock. "The idea was to make an album that appealed to people that loved soulful electric guitar and to avoid any modern style or fad. Also to avoid synthesizers and to make the guitar solos longer like they are in jazz." The songs were recorded over a five year period in two studios at opposite ends of the country. "Tell me the truth" is performed on the Chapman Stick (a tapped guitar/ bass with 12 strings and stereo output). There is also some great electric slide guitar on "Welfare Days" many of the other songs are in the guitar trio format, with solos improvised in one take rather than overdubbed. Vocals are reminiscent of Captain Beefheart and Howling Wolf. Another point of interest in the amazing Reichel guitar used on Antimatter.
