      Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

      Boston Rock Radio


      Joe Stump doesn't just noodle around on the guitar, he embraces it fully. Not many people really sit back and enjoy instrumental metal and those are the people we should pity. Following up his 2015 release of The Dark Lord Rises, Joe again graces us with his new release Symphonic Orchestra. With over two decades under his belt, he has toured solo, has been with his own Tower of Babel, Reign of Terror, and Holyhell. It has also been recently announced that he will be the new guitarist for the relaunch of Alcatrazz with vocalist Graham Bonnet and keyboardist Jimmy Waldo. Being the busy man that he is, he is also a noted associate professor at Berklee for metal guitar. With Symphonic Onslaught he joins Francisco Palomo (keyboardist and bassist) and drummer Hector Jaramillo to create this sonic masterpiece. 

      My advice is to find a long stretch of road and let this album caress you through your speakers. “Demonic Trance” could be renamed as Demonic riffs. The notes twist around you and seep into your cerebral cortex to release those endorphins. Check out the labyrinthine structures of “On With the Action” and “Facemelting Devastation.” I try to pick out notes and chords but he is so blistering on the fret that it is impossible. My choice pick is “Stratocastle” for reasons unknown other than I can picture this being the backdrop of an action scene in a movie. Even then, I was undecided against “Mayhem Ensues,” which is beyond a whirlwind; it sounds like a tasmanian devil creating havoc in the desert. If an album can conjure up images, scenarios and “mini plays” without words, that is the achievement of greatness.
