Notes and Editorial Reviews

A thrilling new band from Paris led by the fabulous composer/perfromer Guillaume Perret who has paid his dues, appearing on dozens of remarkable CDs as a saxophonist. With Electric Epic he finally steps out on his own with a new electric quartet. The result of two years of intense work, the music is a powerful fusion of jazz, rock and metal, with a huge sound, virtuosic solos, brilliant compositions and creative arrangements. Possessing a huge dynamic range and creating a sound way beyond your expectations, this is a very special debut recording by this musical pioneer who is breaking new ground in electric music with this cutting edge quartet. An emotional powerhouse!
