Joe Satriani – Big Distortion (single)
Joe Satriani, the guitar maestro dazzles us again with Big Distortion, the latest single taken from his forthcoming studio album Shapeshifting, released on April 20th 2020 via Sony Music/Legacy Recordings.
Even by his high standards, this song definitely whets the appetite for the new album. This instrumental hits hard with a scything main riff to keep the headbangers happy as bluesy pieces mesh with crushing power chords. The solos are flashy but don’t dominate. It’s a feel-good song that’s most welcome in the current climate. It’s totally captivating especially when it closes with THAT main riff!
