Retrospect Records 2011. After several years and an album later with the band GENOCIDE (also released by Retrospect), vocalist/guitarist Gary Hendrickson struck out on his own, recording and touring with his Utah-based project simply called “HENDRICKSON” — this time taking a more straight ahead melodic hard rock / metal approach.

“Maestro” was originally privately released in 1987 in limited quantities on vinyl (a rare collectors gem these days!) and now gets the modern digital / CD release it well deserves. His blazing guitar riffs and solo’s are still here, and the songwriting is also more refined, accompanied by a group of fiery musicians. Gary’s vocals are also in top form, with some great screams and some killer harmonies to really fill out these tunes. Riding that fine line between 80’s metal and hard rock, you would do well by checking out this very impressive release from Gary and company!!
