Astral Projection

The album "Astral Projection" by George Bellas contains 70 minutes of epic progressive instrumentals packed with chaotic guitar improvisations; mind-melting rhythms; lyrical themes; and advanced explorations of modern principles that are combined with classical elements of counterpoint, harmony and form.

This album is an amalgamation of guitar saturated songs and epic progressive songs. The guitar oriented songs are brimming with emotionally intense lyrical melodies, extremely ferocious solos, and uncommon scales and chords. The progressive songs contain epic themes that are stated with various instruments while interplaying with the guitar and subsequently developed throughout an odd-meter filled soundscape within large classical forms.

"Bellas has established himself with this album as a genre of his own."
"Guitar witchcraft at its best and no less than extravagant instrumental rock."
Metal Glory
"Very inventive, well composed album by shred-meister Bellas. More than just fast shredding, he writes exciting, complex music."
Progressive Metal Zone
"George Bellas's discography is enormous, both solo and in collaboration with or support from other artists. He is a guitar wizard... He composes masterpieces in different styles, from neo-romantic to neo-classical and progressive rock..."
Zware Metalen
