Di Blasio BrOs (2008), by Di Blasio BrOs

Although the photo on the front of the CD jacket looks endearingly over-the-top, like they say, you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. These guys aren’t just mere poseurs – they ROCK!

The Di Blasio BrOs are real-life brothers from Italy who are famous as members of the European hard rock band Kymera, so they definitely have the compositional and performance chops to pull off this excellent foray into pulse-pounding instrumental music.

The Di Blasio BrOs make bold statements with majestic synthesizers, powerful drums, and, last but certainly not least, lead and rhythm guitars that draw you in with flaming licks, searing solos, and thundering chords from which you can’t – and don’t want to – escape.

Overall, the music has the style of power ballads, running the gamut from intensive to introspective and everything in between.

Think of this as Boston without vocals. This is what I imagine Tom Scholz would sound like if he made instrumental albums.

This is one of the best guitar albums of all time and a must-have for fans of loud, melodic, guitar rock. More albums please, Di Blasio BrOs!
