An inspiration to millions of budding guitarists, American guitarist Jeff Loomis’ complex shredding has been a central part of Nevermore’s trademark progressive sound, since the band’s formation in 1992. Often considered as the standing pillar of the band, he has been responsible for some of the most awe-inspiring riffs modern metal has ever heard. With guitar chops inspired by legends like Jason Becker and Yngwie Malmsteen, Loomis has carved his own niche and created an instantly recognizable style. As a result of his invaluable contributions to Nevermore’s success, fans have been calling for a Jeff Loomis solo album for years. With most in the band taking a break, Loomis finally had the opportunity to hit the studio himself and the outcome is nothing short of remarkable.
