Description

In the 1960s it was Jimi Hendrix. In the 1970s it was Edward Van Halen. And in the 1980s, it was arguably Stockholms Yngwie J. Malmsteen that established new, exciting and innovative approaches to the electric guitar. Highly influenced by Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow) and Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions, Electric Sun), the young Swedish maestro developed a neo-classical style inspired by the likes of Bach, Paganini and Vivaldi, that set the tone for hard rock and heavy metal guitarists for the rest of the decade. Yngwie signed to Elektra Records in 1992, releasing his sixth studio album, Fire & Ice, that February. Featuring Göran Edman on vocals and Mats Olausson on keyboards, both of whom had made their debut with Yngwie on previous album, Eclipse, they were joined by Bo Werner on drums and Svante Henryson on bass. Produced by Yngwie, Fire & Ice was recorded at famed Criteria Studios in Miami, and at Abbas Polar Studios in his native Stockholm. This new edition features liner notes from Classic Rock magazines Malcolm Dome, and has been expanded with the Japanese only bonus track, Broken Glass plus the single version of the track 'Teaser'. As part of his World On Fire 2017 tour, Yngwie Malmsteen will be appearing at the O2 Forum Kentish Town on 2nd August, and at Skogsröjet, Rejmyre in Sweden on 4th August.
