Jasun Tipton biography
Jasun Tipton, a native of San Jose, California started his career in the Progressive Metal scene with Zero Hour. Zero Hour was representative of Tipton's creative abilities regarding swift time changes and an all out onslaught of technical precision. Tipton sees himself not just as a guitarist, composer, or keyboardist, but as an artist. An artist that always aspires to take his career in new challenging directions. In his latest project, Tipton attempts to capture his melodic and nuanced styles on tape to contrast that technical, flamboyant, and heavy styles that make up the essence of Zero Hour.

Tipton's debut album Seduction is the example of his abilities to put togethor a nuanced and controlled recording inspired by guitar greats such as Pat Metheny, Paul Gilbert, and other virtuosos including Marty Friedman and Jason Becker.

Jasun Tipton's solo project is obviously reccomended to Progressive Metal fans of Tipton's project Zero Hour, and fans of legendary guitar virtuosos such as Satriani, Vai, Metheny, Becker, and Gilbert.

Why this artist must be listed in :
Jasun Tipton has been cleared by the Progressive Metal team, and his first project the Progressive Metal band Zero Hour is already featured on the website. Tipton's blend of skill and creativity more than qualify his addition to the archives.

3 stars "Seduction" is the debut full-length studio album by US, California based guitarist Jasun Tipton. The album was released through Sensory Records in 2005. Tipton did release "Night's Pulse" in 2000, but it's only 20 minutes long, and I consider it an EP. Tipton is known for his work with Zero Hour, Abnormal Thought Patterns, Death Machine, and Cynthesis and is generally a prolific name in progressive metal circles.

Although there are a couple of nods toward his progressive metal output during the playing time of "Seduction", the music on the album is generally very different in nature to what we're used to from his side. It's predominantly non-metal guitar dominated instrumental music. There's an occasionaly fusion edge to the proceedings, but mostly it's rather laid back, ambient, and pleasant sounding music.

Jasun Tipton plays guitars (acoustic and electric) and keyboards on the album but is helped out by his brother Troy Tipton (Zero Hour, Abnormal Thought Patterns, Death Machine, Cynthesis) on bass and Sean Flanegan (Enchant, Cynthesis) and John Perrine on drums. So it's safe to say that the lineup consists of both skilled and seasoned musical powers.

"Seduction" is well produced too, but for all the great qualities that the album feature, I'm still left a bit underwhelmed by the project, and it's the material that generally isn't catchy or interesting enough. Too often the tracks are reduced to pleasant background listening music, and while there's nothing really bad or offensive about it, it generally lacks edge and a more adventurous attitude. It's simply too nice and polished. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.
