The Long Halloween is the second release from ElixirOnMute, a progressive rock act fronted by the incredibly talented Jordan Ferreira. A friend of mine turned me onto these guys and I have to tell you, after listening through the disc in its entirety I was completely stunned; these guys have a knack for creating some of the most intense, creative and unorthodox music I have heard.
They band is comprised of unbelievable musicians; the sheer technicality of the playing on these tracks is phenomenal. Ferreira’s ethereally melodic vocals are quite interesting and unique, but it is his absolutely insane guitar shredding that will leave you with your mouth agape. The rest of the band is equally as talented and this is highlighted in the way they seamlessly change tempos, stop on a dime, and create a style of music that is quite different from just about anything you may have heard before. A special guest appearance by Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal rounds out a truly exciting musical adventure!
