    I'm on a Shrapnel Records high(especially Racer X) these days and was wondering if any of you guys are into some of these cult acts?

    Some of my favorites include:

    Jennifer Batten - Above Below And Beyond
    Jason Becker - Perpetual Burn
    Buckethead - Bucketheadland & Giant Robot
    Cacophony - Speed Metal Symphony ‎& Get Off!
    Marty Friedman - Dragon's Kiss
    Tony McAlpine - Edge of Insanity
    Vinnie Moore - Mind's Eye
    Racer X - Street Lethal, Second Heat & Technical Difficulties

    etc etc.

    I was into most of Mike Varney's artists back in the 1980's, but I don't listen to any of them nowadays.

    I like:

    Perpetual Burn - Jason Becker
    Greg Howe - Greg Howe
    Richie Kotzen - Richie Kotzen
    Let The Truth Be Known - Souls of We (George Lynch)
    Rick Derringer has a bunch of albums under the Shrapnel Label that are decent.

    that's all I can think of right now...........

    Cool that you mentioned Kotzen and Howe. I've been wanting to check them both out but forgot their names. Thanks!

    Joey Tafolla's debut album is pretty good, if not fairly derivative. Gilbert and MacAlpine both chip into Out of the Sun, so it's well worth getting (Though chances are you're aware of this one). I don't have his second album, Infra-Blue, but I understand it's more in the vein of Satriani than anything else.




    Lanny Cordola (Giuffria, House of Lords, Magdallan) is another very good guitar player who doesn't really get mentioned very often. His first few solo albums are stylistically very schizophrenic (Shrapnel style shred, to gospel blues, to Di Meola-esque jazz-fusion and beyond), but well worth taking the time to listen to if you can find a copy. I can't see any fans of the Shrapnel kids not liking him, honestly.




    And if you like Racer X and Cacophony, I can't see you disliking Apocrypha. Marty Friedman produced their first two albums (Which were both out of print until Shrapnel reissued them recently), so you probably already know what to expect. Tony Fredianelli (sp?) would later go on to play guitar for Third Eye Blind, thus proving that even incredible guitarists have to eat!

    I've always loved Chris Impellitteri. Regardless of who the vocalist was, but his best stuff was with Rob Rock (singer not producer).
