The Devil's Guitar by Sonny Bellavance.


It has taken me a few listens before I feel I can offer a perspective on this.

I must say I still don't feel wholly qualified.

For the first few listens I can only say I was too distracted by the musical virtuosity to properly enjoy the music itself. Sonny's mastery of this flamenco/classical style is impressive to say the least.

Musically there is a medieval tone to the compositions that I find both relaxing and thought provoking.

There are many musical styles that I can sit and write to. With The Devil's Guitar I do find that I can't do that. I find myself stopping everything and just sitting in a kind of trance.

Some of the titles are deceptive in a way. I couldn't help thinking some of the composotions on the CD would sit perfectly in one of the Spaghetti Westerns.

I am trying to think how I would sum it up. There is too much depth in the music to do that simply. I can only say, I suppose, there is just such beauty in the music. And it should just be enjoyed for no other reason than that.

Once you get over been blown away by some of Sonny's fretwork, that is. Seriously, you have to get past that before you just sit and absorb the experience of the music itself.

I absolutely agree with your every word, Reverend.

Sonny's mastery of his craft is stunning and humbling. He is a true musician capable of producing pure awe with his talents. I recommend that all CoS members experience this CD, as it is Satanism By Example in its purest, most inspiring form. The fact that he's also one of the coolest guys on the planet only adds to the complete package. smile

A guitar in the hands of Sonny Bellavance comes alive like in the hands of no other musician. He is a one of a kind master of the guitar. And the musical arrangements and sounds that come from his guitar are breathtaking and stunning and mezmerizing. Sony bends the guitar strings to make you feel what he feels and hear what he hears in his melodic and hyptnoizing CD,"The Devil's Guitar" He is a super artist and musician. I also like the art work on the cover of the CD jacket of, The Devil's Guitar.H.S.

The Devil's Guitar certainly ranks as one of the high water marks of contemporary Satanic art. I recommend it without reservation.

I do love flamenco playing and classical.

Andre Segovia is one of my favorite guitar palyers. Your cd seems interesting. I'll have to check it out in the future.

Dear Warlock Bell,

The guitar is my favourite instrument. Even though I listened to the previews only, I'm already in love with your music. I'm going to have to get me this.

It tickles my spanish blood.

I am always looking for music like this, as it makes a perfect background for when I paint/draw. As inspiration so to speak.

Can't wait to hear it all.

Muchas gracias, Maestro.
