Johannes Maria Knoll 2017

Austrian guitarist Johannes Maria Knoll has decided, after working 25 years with international artists, to step into the front row to release his first instrumental guitar album entitle, transcended.

“The 17 – mainly rock – tracks pay homage to “The Holy Bible” with all it’s force, it’s darkness, it’s distortion, it’s epic broadness, it’s catastrophes, it’s brutality, it’s treasons, it’s light, it’s cleanness,  it’s philosophy, it’s morality, it’s hope, it’s glory, it’s power, it’s kindness, it’s wisdom, it’s truth, it’s salvation and it’s love.”

If you’re into music like The Extremist era Joe Satriani then you should tune in and check out some of Johannes’ tracks that we’ll play after his predominately Classic Metal playlist!

Tune in at 15:00 and 21:00 CET/ 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. EST this Friday to hear the show!

While you wait, check out this sampler from the album:
