Review 回顧文章 (Photo: Mohawkmajorie)

一個終極結他音樂表演之夜,由5個活躍於不同年代、來自不同流派、有著不同特色的世界級的結他手把高超技術在現場呈現出來 —— Steve Vai, Nuno Bettencourt, Zakk Wylde, Official Yngwie Malmsteen, Tosin Abasi —— 而Zakk的主場可算是金屬頭們最難忘的!

「⋯⋯Zakk Wylde 以 Black Sabbath 無人不曉的 N.I.B. 開幕。重型旋律,加上子彈般的獨奏迅即點燃了金屬頭的火炙,更有不少樂迷一同合唱。Father Zakk 更決定與粉絲進行更近距離接觸,兩次跳進觀眾群內,在您眼前零距離展現無可挑剔的技巧!當然少不了其簽名式動作,把結他架在強大肩膀後瘋狂彈奏,引起身旁樂迷不斷headbang,當然也引來不少智能手機,盡可能捕獲這個難忘時刻。回到舞台上,Zakk 再多來幾首 —— headbang、打結他在肌肉的上把玩、瘋狂用牙齒彈奏,閉著眼睛仍不會錯過一個音符⋯⋯」

“… Just like the previous session, the stage is now Zakk Wylde’s. Opening with “N.I.B.”, the famous Black Sabbath song. The chunky, bullet-like solo immediately ignite the heavy metal firm inside the fans’ hearts. There’s no metalhead on the floor not like this anthem. Father Zakk decides to have a closer interaction with the fans by jumping into the crowd TWICE and show you the impeccable skills right in front of your eyes! (literally) The front picking, then switch to on-the-shoulder guitar solo, makes everyone around to headbang and of course, to raise their smartphone to capture as much as possible so to instagram it. Back to the stage, Wylde keeps shredding for a couple more rock songs – headbanging, playing on his muscular shoulder, crazy teeth and with eyes closed…”
