Impellitteri

Impellitteri was formed in 1987 by guitarist Chris Impellitteri. The music consisted predominantly of power metal mixed with Chris Impellitteri's shredding. Most of the songs are fast-paced and upbeat, driven heavily by riffs and Chris's fast solos.

Impellitteri was formed in 1987 by guitarist Chris Impellitteri. The music consisted predominantly of power metal mixed with Chris Impellitteri's shredding. Most of the songs are fast-paced and upbeat, driven heavily by riffs and Chris's fast solos. Some of the albums included instrumentals, showing off Chris's shredding skills (for which he was named the #2 fastest shredder of all time by Guitar World magazine). A few later albums, such as Pedal to the Metal, slowed down for more of a Hard Rock feel, but these were in the minority.

Many of the lyrics are explicitly Christian in nature, although the band has stated that it is not intended to be received as a "Christian band". A few of the many explicitly Christian songs have titles such as "Father Forgive Them", "Answer to the Master", "Kingdom of Light", "Paradise", "Shed Your Blood", and others.

Other lyrical themes besides Christianity include society, despair, justice, and love. « hide
