LONERO are the self proclaimed purveyors of “Guitar-Core”, and after hearing their new album JFL, I see no need to argue with them on the subject. I think it’s safe to say that shredding has taken on a whole new meaning when it comes to great guitar driven records. Sure, there are a lot of great heavy instrumental bands out there, but this is something different altogether. Each and every track on JFL is unique to itself, showcasing a different perspective on how a great band approaches the writing process. Some songs take on a JOE SATRIANI type wank off (in a good way) vibe, while others have a punk rock feel, or spaced out groove. You have no idea how the album will unfold until it has already hit you and you are nestled comfortably within the soft blanket of musical bliss. Comparisons could be made in some instances, but that seems like a cheap way of saying that LONERO has eclectic taste in music, and aren’t afraid to wear those influences on their sleeve. Those of you who find it hard to get into compositions without lyrics should have no problem getting comfortable with LONERO’s music. Although the words aren’t there, the instruments are well capable of doing the speaking in a language that we all can understand. Also, unlike most instrumental albums, JFL doesn’t lose you in fifteen minute compositions full of everything but the kitchen sink. Instead, each song has it’s chosen path and sticks to that formula for a good four or five minutes, then on to the next one, giving you the feel of a conventional rock record, even if this is anything but run of the mill.
