Turn Of The Millennium

George Bellas' debut release, "Turn Of The Millennium", is an album of intensely heavy compositions with odd-time meter and neo-classical, progressive overtones. The CD features some extended tracks--check out the 12 minute "Everlasting" or the 9 minute "Monolith". Bellas leads the way for a new breed of guitar players as he explores the outer realms of cutting-edge guitar music, blending crunch and speedy neo-classical guitar. Kevin Chown, as always, is tremendous on bass. "Turn Of The Millennium" also features Deen Castronovo on drums.

"George Bellas was one of the most promissing guitar heroes thet emerged from the SHRAPNEL RECORDS label! The guy has an impressive technical arsenal and the word progressive shredder can describe best his style!"

"We have many tracks of more than 10 minutes - some uptempos and slow ones - the keyboard work is impressive too, not only the guitar, which is brilliant!"
