I’m a freelance writer/blogger that started doing reviews nine years ago. I’m a fan of Hard Rock, Progressive Rock, Heavy Metal, and Jazz Rock. Also a musician for 20 years. Music has been my friend since listening to the Beatles when I was a little boy. It wasn’t until I discovered Pink Floyd 20 years ago and it changed my life. Geek also, but the Progressive genre has still kept me going from day one. And there’s no stop sign for me. I also have a blog site in which I also do reviews since 2008 entitled, Music from the Other Side of the Room.

Bleed is the trio’s challenging release from MoonJune Records. It hits you right there and then. It slices and dices from one track to the next. And those hot slices that you’ve eaten, are they mouth-watery or not?

Stephan Thelen – Fractal Guitar 3
