Track by Track Review
Coffin Closer - Longboard Legato
The show opens with "Coffin Closer," a tune that starts with a dramatic opening before launching into that signature Dave Wronski power shred... Amazing precision and speed. Dusty Watson's speed and power are in sync, and Sam Bolle rumbles powerfully beneath. They move right into "Longboard Legato," a fine melody richly delivered with silky whammy and precision. This is a marvelous adventure in the richness of the genre, and an ambassador for the longboard generation.
Ringing notes lull you into a unsuspected shreddin'. "The Bells Of St. Kahuna" rips with molten glissandos and pounding drums. The glissandos down get much faster than this! This has become a signature piece for Slacktone.
