Tony Hernando - TH III - Live (CD+DVD)
If we become more absorbed in the subject matter, we can find some talented guitarists in sunny Spain. Tony Hernando is currently one of most-known Iberian guitarists. He is a graduate from Superior Conservatory of Music (Salamanca), IMT (Madrit) and Guitar Institute of Technology (Hollywood). His stay in the USA has borne many hours of excercises with brilliant musicians, but counting-out rhyme isn't necessary here, haha. Mr. Hernando has recorded three solo albums so far: "High" (2000), "The Shades of Truth" (2002) and "III" (2005).

My experience tells me that joining CD with DVD, if they include a typical guitar music, isn't too frequent custom. Let's start from the CD with visual-sonic recording of Hernando's gig in Bilbao (2005; a support was Freak Kitchen then). Now, I'd like to focus your attention on my visual impressions, haha. I must own up to you, Dear Readers, that I have never been able to understand those fans who mosh during the concerts. Even I am not thinking of such a result like guaranteed neckache, but of the matter of concentration on music. When I look at virtuoso music fans, they are always strongly focused on all acts on the stage. They identify with music and contemplate it. If I had left the concert hall tired out of the limit, it wouldn't have pleased and satisfied me after the show. If I am right, music should make our life enjoyable, and not "murder" us! Head-flapping in all directions is a drag for me, so it disqualifies me from the metalheads subculture. Moving from digressions to Tony's performance, it's worth mentioning that his staff isn't Iron Maiden or Judas Priest (with my greatest respect for Englishmen, haha), so you will not see any Eddies or Harleys on the stage. Maybe aforementioned heavy metal giants' music requires an additive visual setting, but it would be redundant in Hernando's case. I claim that "flying" things before our eyes could interfere us with focusing our attention on such multi-dimensional and veried music. I prefer watching the solo arranged by a drum "troll" - Mike Terrana - to making the concert time pass more pleasantly for me with unsophisticated, and often kitschy additives as well.

The audio CD includes the tracks recorded live and two absolutely new compositions ("State Of Mind", "Time To Believe"). As far as Spaniard's music is concerned, I most appreciate his avoiding of monothematical elements in instrumental layer. There are heavy and progressive riffs on one pole, slight improvisations in-between, and original and melodious parts on the other "riverside". Tony's music isn't strictly progressive, but includes much of that subgenre in contrast to sparse neoclassical elements (audible in "Outsiders" with Vitalij Kuprij's participation). Mr. Hernando's newest release is the next proof that virtuosic music has no one face. It is multifacetial and multidirectional. I honestly recommend that item to the fans of Patrik Carlsson, Cyril Achard and Anand.
