THIS MONTH: THE RETURN OF YNGWIE MALMSTEEN AND THE ARRIVAL OF CARDINAL BLACK, PLUS CHOICE CUTS FROM IDA MAE, MARC RIBLER AND MORE

Yngwie Malmsteen

“Wolves at the Door”

This first offering from Parabellum is a thunderous display of fingerboard acrobatics and eye-watering musicianship that encapsulates everything we love about Yngwie. On 2019’s Blue Lightning, he took cues from less extreme avenues of noise. This time, he’s channeling the metallic aggression of his early years, rounded off with the neoclassical twists and turns that cemented his stature as the king of baroque ’n’ roll. Yngwie has described the new music as “more extreme” than what he’s recorded in the past and has likened its intensity to 1986’s Trilogy. If you need a fix of sweep-picked arpeggios, blistering harmonic minor runs and Paganini-inspired etudes, look no further.

THE STRIPPED-DOWN appeal of the EVH Striped Series of guitars will most likely never lose its enduring popularity for Van Halen fans and players alike. Even the many iterations of the Wolfgang series adopted by numerous artists continues to grow by leaps and bounds. But if you ask me, I’ve been digging the EVH 5150 Series Standard guitar, which combines the very best attributes of Eddie Van Halen’s famed “5150” guitar along with the refined tones of Eddie’s innovatively designed Wolfgang guitars.
