Synopsis

Album Description
Mastered by Leon Zervos (Aerosmith - 'Nine Lives', Dream Theater - 'Falling Into Infinity'/'Once In A Livetime', Steve Morse - 'Major Impacts'), Full On! is 7-string guitar virtuoso Toshi Iseda's first solo CD, featuring over 74 minutes of music produced, written, arranged and engineered by Iseda. One of the pioneering players of the 7-string solidbody electric guitar (Toshi has been playing 7-strings exclusively since 1991), Iseda is considered the foremost up-and-coming solo instrumental guitarist on the music scene. The fifteen track CD takes you on a journey through musical soundscapes, sonic tapestries, and over-the-top guitar. The opening track on Full On!, "Tokushima", brings to mind visions of the Orient with its exotic colors. The title track is a fast-paced double bass kick in the ass song that couldn't be heavier if Metallica played it. "High Noon" features an almost "wild-west-like" guitar solo duel between Michael Angelo and Iseda that is about as over the top as guitar playing can get. Other highlights include the groovacious and funkified "Custer's Last Groove" and "Predator" - with a guest appearance from former Dixie Dregs and Vinnie Moore bassist Andy West, the soul-wrenching ballad "The Sheltering Sky", featuring guest Tony MacAlpine on guitar, the upbeat tempo "92 In The Shade", featuring Tony MacAlpine on keyboards, and the mysterious "Affair With A Stranger", with Michael Terrana (Yngwie Malmsteen/Tony MacAlpine) on drums and Michael Angelo returning for another appearance on guitar. Each CD is hand-signed by the guitarist on the back of the CD insert and includes a Toshi Iseda Signature guitar pick. THIS CD IS A "MUST HAVE" FOR ANY FAN OF INSTRUMENTAL GUITAR! - Over The Top! Records, Inc. Toshi is endorsed by Aphex, Audix, Digitech, DiMarzio, Dunlop, Ernie Ball, Eventide Harmonizers, Monster Cable, Morley, Ovation, Randall Amplifiers and Tech 21 NYC - Over The Top!

CD Reviews

Fantastic First Album
Vincent Serpeico | 05/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The day of the 7 string guitar has arrived and its messenger is Toshi Iseda. His talent as composer and instrumentalist is unsurpassed. Each track is different and original. He is a remarkably gifted artist. His style is very visceral and in your face. This not background music. It demands and deserves your full attention. Well done Toshi!"

""Toshi's new stuff sounds great! His use of the 7-string guitar and some real cool effects are refreshing. The tone is real warm and precise and his playing is totally wailing!" -John Petrucci (Guitarist for Dream Theater)"
Freakin awesome!
