I can't imagine how the common The Paper Mind - Will She Ever / Far Away From Here of who just bought a classic guitar last week reacted when this piece of lethal overdose shredding that just randomly popped out of his speakers, forcing him to throw away his guitar thinking,"I'm just a noob who'll never reach this level" and surrender to his future lame-assed career of a fat bourgeois clerk with a fat wife and two fat kids.
Hell yeah. The teachers are: 'Yngwie J. Malmsteen' fret burning guitars, compositions and general awesomeness'Jens Johansson' keyboards wizardry'Barriemore Barlow' drums and brutality and 'Jeff Scott Soto' vocals and dinosaur's balls ; a top notch team of musicians that perpetuate for YOU some of the best musical pieces ever written. What's so noticeable in this track is the clear mix, the precise accuracy of each instrument, and the beautifully clean sound of the Fenders that Malmsteen shred so heavenly.
Yeah, this is undoubtedly an amazing opener and Coventry Carol - Various - Darkness Falls Upon This Christmas (File) true highlight.
The next song is 'Far Beyond The Sun', opening with a majestic neoclassical theme accompanied by wonderfully ecclesiastical keyboards and blazing drums. This song is just a pure guitar masturbation where each note is located perfectly and sounds brilliant. Malmsteen finishes this song off with some thunderous guitar shrieks and rapid scale attacks that will make your jaw drop, your ears sweat, and your overwhelmed mind beg for more! He has kind of a dirty yet melodic voice that suits the riffs quite well and his overall character is dominant enough to not let the songs go down.
He's a pretty fitting choice for the vocals department, Apocalypse (Backwards) - 666 - Alarma! would say. Now, one of the more epic track that Yngwie ever wrote, a truly epic piece, is 'Icarus Dream Suite' that only by its title you can guess how amazingly this one's gonna sound. The track begins with some power chord strikes that lead to a beautiful hypnotizing preface with cosmic Timeless Mood - Special EFX - Slice Of Life and mellow lead guitar.
Later on comes some acoustic guitars with an overwhelmingly catchy riff that leads to another majestic section and then Malmsteen comes in with thundering lead Far Beyond The Sun - Yngwie J. Malmsteen* - Rising Force to prove once again that he is simply awesome. Pure ear orgasm is guaranteed. Each track in this album is just well structured, complex, deep and full of young ambitions and imagination.
I can't remember how many times I've put this cd on, closed my eyes and let this rich world of brilliant notes guide me to fantasy landscapes and imaginary districts that belongs in the fantasy world of Tolkien and his colleagues.
Except for being an astonishing milestone in the world of music, 'Rising Force' is also a great influence for endless amount of musicians of our era, and is partly the reason for why YouTube is so full of little Japanese kids with giant heads that manifest extraordinary guitar skills.
Ignore all the ignorant critics or anemic minds that Kingdom Of The Sun - Gas Huffer - Lemonade For Vampires comprehend highly complex and fast music. This album has passed the test of time and is officially declared a classic. Get this album, learn it in depth, and enjoy every moment. Second, those hip at the time already knew this Swedish meatball from his stints with Steeler and Alcatrazz.
All of this technique is used to create music with sound compositions, something the majority of guitar geeks failed to manage.
In fact the only real snag is the two vocal cuts, which feature singer Jeff Scott Soto in less than inspired performances. From here Malmsteen would enjoy a varied and colorful career, often dotting his records with flecks of the sustained brilliance he reveals here.
In Yngwie J. Rising Force is also one of the very first neo-classical metal releases. Rising Force unlike the rest of Yngwie J. Rising Force takes a lot of influence from the baroque style of classical music albeit with a guitar and other metal instruments. The album as a whole is nearly flawless in terms of execution and really shows how great a virtuoso talent Yngwie really is. Even for Yngwie the songs are very solo based but unlike the rest of his albums, they are put to great use in adding emotion instead of the more aimless shredding he is known for.
Rising Force is also far more melodic than anything else Yngwie has ever done, hence the atmosphere is much more present which really adds great effect to each song. Keyboard use is present and works to great effect on Rising Force it adds crucial atmosphere it also solos with Yngwie on some of the songs. Each song does something different and really shows that Yngwie should have gone this direction instead of simplifying his songwriting for the masses.
The production is top notch albeit it could use a remastering job just for the sake of having a louder more modern volume level. Jens Johansson is a master keyboardist and he is very effective at providing background effect and atmosphere throughout Rising Force. Barriemore Barlow is the low point of Rising Force because he rarely changes his drum beats, barely even uses drum fills, and just provides the beat.
As said above the drumming could have been much better but I believe it was more the fault of Yngwie. Slower and more simplistic drumming takes notice away from the drums for listeners and focuses them more on the guitar work.
Overall Rising Force is a landmark neo-classical metal tour de force of compositional and virtuoso talent. I highly recommend this release to any fan of Hippach Lied - Zillertal - Frühschoppen Aus Hippach, symphonic, and even progressive metal. While future efforts will most likely fall into the power-meets-pop metal category, this album of which most are instrumentals takes the concept of a guitar solo and builds an album behind it.
As you would expect, the guitar playing is very excellent, with a then 21 year old Malmsteen wowing everybody with his striking shredding. And since most of this album consists of shredding, most of it is of fairly good quality.
Not that any of that will interest you, of course. With the exception of Jens Johansson's noodling on the one of the 2 "real" songs As Above, So BelowI can just see the other 3 bandmates falling asleep at the wheel.
Repetitive doesn't quite describe it; it's more that the rest of the instruments' levels are way down in the mix, so really all you hear is the shredding, which is good, but can't prop up an entire album. So Yngwie recruited Jeff Scott Soto to do singing on Far Beyond The Sun - Yngwie J.
Malmsteen* - Rising Force of the songs, which by any stretch of the imagination aren't Far Beyond The Sun - Yngwie J. Malmsteen* - Rising Force interesting; Soto's performance doesn't match his shattering screams on Marching Out. Nay, this is Yngwie's showcase and he's gonna prove himself beyond a reasonable doubt.
Nevertheless, after the first two songs, I'm fully convinced the man can play. Yet he continues, on and on and on. There are only so many permutations of his basic formula that he can do, and he doesn't even excercise those to a complete degree, either. After "Now Your Ships Are Burned", the first of the 2 "real" songs, the album really doesn't pick up until, well, actually, it doesn't. Evil Eye, for instance, is alright but the main riff is kinda boring and a lot of the soloing is done over midtempo rhythm arrangements and boring riffs, which is exacerbated by the recurring problem that the only instrument that dominates the mix is the lead guitar.
That's forgivable if the guitar is doing more melodious arrangements i. That problem crops up again and again in this album and it really hampers what could've been a good album. The sad thing is remains to be that at this point, Rising Force wasn't so much a band as backing for Yngwie Malmsteen's gigantic ego.
I get the feeling that all the musicians were instructed not to do anything that would steal Malmsteen's thunder, which is Too Much - The Honeymoon Killers - Sing Sing (1984-1994) tragedy, because Jens Johansson and Jeff Scott Soto are definately not used enough here.
The drums fail to do anything interesting, though that was rectified on Marching Out when Anders, Jens' older brother and a beast of a drummer, joined the band.
But again, this isn't a band, this is a solo effort done by a man who was in Alcatrazz and wanted to have a chance to showcase his abilities. Luckily, Alcatrazz failed and Yngwie combined the more accessible approach of Alcatrazz with the more neoclassical underpinnings that make the first couple songs great.
Do yourself a favor and download "Black Star" and "Far Beyond the Sun" as those are the only songs here worth your time. The rest aren't necessarily bad, but they're not great either due to the aforementioned flaws. Just as the Overkill song says, Yngwie Malmsteen emerged onto the musical world and wowed the world with his shredding of the guitar. The virtuoso that he was, he set out to show the world how good he was and his debut is a showcase of that with all the numbers being instrumentals except two with short vocal parts provided by Jeff Scott Soto.
The tracks mostly consist of Yngwie showing his ability with some riffage then going into the shredding and playing numerous Fire - Various - Discoradio Compilation. Sometimes he does some acoustic playing, like on "Black Star. This is one of the highlights on here. Yngwie is a neoclassical shredder and it shows. His influences consist of a bunch of classical composers as well as Ritchie Blackmore.
It can be found throughout all of the album and at times it is great, but at other times it just feels out of place. Like in "Now Your Ships are Burned" there is a fierce riffage and vocals and then it drifts into some mindless wankery and then goes back into vocals.
Another example is "Far Beyond the Sun" where Yngwie is following the drum beat and riffiing then giving a little lead, but then just turns into wankery again with the keyboard coming into play.
Far Beyond The Sun - Yngwie J. Malmsteen* - Rising Force of the keyboard, this happens to be a problem on this release.
