2 stars Farzad returns with the difficult second album. This too is a free download from his homepage.

The first album was a demo of what he could do. The demonstration continues on this album. A demonstration where he proves he is an excellent guitar player and that he can move from metal to folk music to some avant-garde to simple rock'n'roll. Most of the music here is progressive metal. The album is instrumental and based on his guitar playing. The song titles are numbers instead of proper titles. Which is suitable here. Farzad Golpayegani moves within many well known metal and rock riffs. He adds some Persian folk music to this soup and his own personality. Fans of Dream Theater and prog metal will recognice a lot of the music on this album. The Persian folk music aside, the originality is therefore limited.

The quality of the material here is also limited and is being overshadowed by the "spot this riff by band x" games this music evokes. This album is a decent album and that's all. A plus for the folk music here.
