The 2012 debut solo album, “Guitarcadia”, by guitarist, Xander Demos, is a shred fest that’s still sending shockwaves through the music world!
Besides being featured in numerous top-level radio and TV shows, Demos’ music has received multiple awards. He also performs more than 100 shows a year opening for acts like Symphony X, Adrenaline Mob, Buckethead, Lizzy Borden, Neil Zaza and Dio Disciples, as well as performing at Rock Harvest II, Wolf Fest, Skull Fest and NAMM Metal Jam.
Mixed by CJ Snare (Firehouse), “Guitarcadia” was named among the Best Albums of 2012 by Hair Metal Mansion, and it’s easy to understand why!
It is pretty much impossible to walk away from hearing this album without being blown away by Demos’ lightning fast speed, blistering solos and screaming melodies!
Demos’ skill on the guitar is absolutely undeniable as his fingers blaze their way up and down multiple scales before you can even utter his name, and his tone cuts through strong and clean but with that electric intensity that makes your hair stand on end!
You can’t back up this kind of skill without some serious talent in the rest of the mix, and for this album, Demos found just the right complements in Matt Williams on bass and Chris Batton on drums.
