Byron Nemeth Group - 2007 - The Force Within [VBR HQ]
Genre: Instrumental/Progressive Rock
Throughout his career Byron Nemeth has opened for such notable bands/artists such as Warrant, Winger, Dream Theater, Rick Emmett from Triumph, Wrathchild America, Vicious
Rumors with Vinnie Moore, Helix, Keel with Mark Ferrari, David Chastain, Tony Mc Alpine, Yes, Black Label Society with Zakk Wylde and Proto-Kaw featuring Kerry Livgren from the original Kansas line-up.
Byron Nemeth Group consists of 4 talented players and composers that have a strong desire to make unique defining music that is not based on any of the trends that have polluted music and made the music business a watered down empty shell of what it used to be.
With unique vision for composition the 9 songs on The Force Within are a breath of fresh air that combine power and strength along with a modern progressive sound without compromising the melodic integrity that has become a staple of BNG records.
Snake Charmer is a favorite of the band, a song with a strong groove that hooks you in with first listen and is a glowing example of the direction of this new CD in style and form.
Another favorite is Frankenstein's Lullaby, a up tempo fast moving song that weaves a fusion jazz bridge element with a heavy wild harmonic minor ending and humorous title that is explosive in composition and a concert favorite.
A stand out track on The Force Within is a remake of The Beatles classic "I Am The Walrus". This is a powerful instrumental version that brings a new light to the Lennon & McCartney classic.
