Marcus Matusiak (All Instruments)

The Grim Sweeper is the solo project of Marcus Matusiak, guitarist of power metal band Powermajus and formerly keyboard player of melodic death metal band Matron. Originally started as a largely improvised busking project in London.

Marcus decided to put down some of his better ideas on record and take some time to write some more structured lead parts and solos.
The result is this debut release "Blood of Odin".

Here we have six epic instrumental pieces, think Steve Vai performing Turisas!
In all honesty i think that some vocals would have made this more intresting, but you cannot fault the guitarwork or amazing keyboard playing.

Marcus has created "danceable" viking folk power metal and made a great debut.

Rating 8/10
For Fans Of: Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Turisas.
