3.0 goodArchibald C. Burke | September 8th 08

The debut solo outing from Nevermore guitarist/composer Jeff Loomis, Zero Order Phase offers up enough shredding and ambiant melody to keep any fan of his band happy. There is no doubt that Loomis possesses a style all his own, and those who have already come to embrace this will surely enjoy this record. As with most instrumental offerings there are a few stale moments here, but the disc has more than enough brightspots to keep the listener interested throughout.

This is albsolutely ***in sick. if your a never more fan, GET IT, if your a metal head GET IT, if your a guitar player, GERT IT. i dont feel like writing a review. "In 2005, Jeff reported that he would take some time as a break and then begin recording a solo album. He said, "It's something I've been wanting to do for sometime... It will be like a Jason Becker/Marty Friedman kind of thing." On April 1, 2008, Jeff said that all 10 songs which have been written have had the drumming recorded (which was done by Mark Arrington pretty much overnight) and they will soon begin tracking the rhythm guitar. On 3rd July 2008, it was announced that the album will be called Zero Order Phase" Musical guests on the album:
Mark Arrington (ex-Nevermore): All Drums
Ron Jarzombek (Watchtower): Solo(s) on "Jato Unit"
Pat O'Brien (Cannibal Corpse): Playing on Race Against Disaster
Michael Manring (Solo): Playing Bass on Cashmere Shiv
Neil Kernon: Fretless guitar solo on "Cashmere Shiv" Recommended Tracks:

- Shouting Fire at a Funeral

- Azure Haze

I never doubted Jeff Loomis when he finally announced he was going to release a solo album. The dude is a friggin' shred machine! Of course, this album does not disappoint. Every song on this album glistens with nothing but top notch shred. What can you expect from Loomis? The guy knows how to melt some faces. I hope to see more solo work from Loomis, because this album was fantastic and an absolute joy to listen to.
