Formerly a member of Huddersfield thrash metal revivalists Evile, Ol Drake is a guitarist of notable capability. A consummate musician, the classically trained and technically stunning player has left the greasy thrash world behind for the cleaner, if nerdier world of instrumental guitar music. Following the well-worn fretboards of the likes of Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, ‘Old Rake’, is his debut solo album, cut from the same aesthetic; guitar wizardry with speed and melody, with no room for vocals. Although some might shudder to think of such a perceived muso widdle fest, ‘Old Rake’ is a joyous romp from start to finish.
