Like a musical incarnation of Robert Lewis Stevenson's dual personality Jekyll & Hyde, the compositions of Adrian Galysh teeter and alternate between the unbridled savage fury of prog/speed metal and the majestic soundscapes of cinematic film scores.
With the blazing light-speed and technical proficiency associated with guitarist like Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, John Petrucci, and Michael Romeo, Galysh pumps out hard rocking numbers like "Brick By Brick", "When You Fall", "Flying", and "Movie In My Mind"; complimented by vocals from Mark Boals (Yngwie Malmsteen and Royal Hunt). ...
Whereas I find the instrumental tracks more to my liking - both the energetic metal fusion tracks like "Spring (The Return)" and "Echoes Of El Greco", as well as and his ethereal orchestral compositions.
His classical tracks like "Luminae", "Tone Poet", and "Epoch" are beautifully arranged orchestrated pieces one might expect to find on an album from Camel, Gandalf, The Enid, or Vangelis. Polar opposite from the four prog/metal rockers mentioned earlier.
