However, unlike the first disc where Cinniger seemed more comfortable and at least kept up with Poland, here his solo spots are more typical and a little less focused. His overall role here is much more as a band member than a guest soloist and the music benefits massively from this. While this project is certainly the baby of the two guitarists, the actual sound is anything but a wank fest. I stumbled across this little gem at a pal’s place whose tastes run more to the Al Jarreau than to prog. After starting out with a little Christian rock group from LA called Megadeth whatever happened to them, anyway? Ohm’s Chris Poland, most famous for his run as the first lead guitarist of Megadeth, has emerged from the legions of 80’s shredders as one of the few who really has the musical goods. While Poland and Cinniger get the attention, the other three members of this band are just as tasty and blistering.

An unfortunate end to an album that I otherwise enjoyed way more than I expected to.
OHMphreyas both band and album is called, was, to say so directly, one hell of a first impression, and this creative, daring slab of improvisational, instrumental rock merited a spot on the Best of fusion list. I think almost anyone can enjoy this music, but it is musicians that are going to really appreciate how amazing this work is.
OHMphrey – Posthaste Review
I suspect from the feel that this comes from Cinniger’s roots more than Poland’s. However, unlike the first disc where Cinniger seemed more comfortable and at least kept up with Poland, here his solo spots are more typical and a little less focused. What makes this so great is that despite all the players being monstrously talented in their roles, they seem postjaste be serving a postthaste interest rather than ever wanting to showcase themselves.
All done with the nimbleness and unselfishness of team-minded musicians. The opener, “Devil’s in the Details,” is especially heavy and much more like the dark prog of King Crimson than fusion.
The band wisely avoids the heavy stuff, except for the odd riff here and there. Launched with a metal bent, the hard attitude makes way for a rock-jazz mid-tempo groove, then a whack interlude, then back to the heavy rock. Umphrey’s frequently pulls out Metallica, Pink Floyd, and even occasionally King Crimson during their ohmphreyy sets.
Kris Myers plays like he’s just been let out of the barn for the spring, and lays down some slippery grooves that are quite impressive. The different tracks certainly had different vibes and feels, but really weren’t fully realized compositions. Whatever the source, I was deliciously surprised when I first sampled this song as it fulfilled all my hopes, realizing the potential I’d heard in the debut. His musings are strewn out across the interwebs on jazz.

His first lead could easily be mistaken for a keyboard as his ring-modulated tone is about as far from metal guitar as you can get. While not a hug fan of the Jazz genre, i felt a review of this disc phmphrey order. Posthaste Magna Carta You must be a forum member to post a review, please register here if you are not. As far as I can tell, these 2 tracks consist of the band fucking around for 10 minutes and 20 minutes respectively.
This fact derives mainly from the fact that Poland cut his teeth not on metal but on 70’s fusion such as Weather Report and Mahavishnu Orchestra. While Cinniger pposthaste be the leader, Pags is ohmphrfy anchor.
Poland seems also to have shaken off some rust since he had to take a break with ear problems and his solo playing here and on the Polcat record have a renewed energy.
