CORBIN KING came to worldwide notice with his blistering guitar work on the critically acclaimed VAINGLORY "2050" release and the band's follow up. He also provided the sensational guitar work on KINRICK'S "Sense Your Darkness." He was proclaimed "One of the brightest young guitar stars to have come around in years." Blending influences from diverse styles such as traditional metal to shred metal to heavy blues rock, Corbin's dominant guitar is truly astounding.
"Nightwalker" is Corbin's favorite instrumental tracks from some of his previous releases. This collection really highlights Corbin's amazing technique, blues sensibility and breathtaking improvisational skills.
Corbin describes some of his favorite tracks on the Cd:
MIND GAMES- This tune is pretty wide open all the way through. I really tried for a great tone, not only this song, but the whole CD. This song has some very dynamic parts and is one of my favorites on the Cd.
HURRICANE X- Completely energetic, a slight amount of a blues rock theme, but completely shredding at the same time. I really went all out on the is one.
DESTINATION- By far the bluesiest tune on the Cd, yet still amazingly heavy. You can really just kick back and rock! A perfect ending.
Corbin is one of guitardoms true underground giants that deserves more mainstream recognition. Hopefully "Nightwalker" will expand his music to more than just the "in the know" fans of today.
