AMERICA’S NEW GUITAR GOD RETURNS WITH HIS UNIQUE & INNOVATIVE BRAND OF SHRED BLACK METAL!
Originally signing with world-renowned guitar god label Shrapnel Records in 1992 at the unheard of age of only 19, Toby Knapp has never looked back and continues to have a productive and prolific career in rock and heavy metal! Recording albums for over 20 of his own bands including Onward, Toby Knapp, Affliktor, Where Evil Follows, Necrytis & Darken among others, being a full time guitar teacher, as well as a session studio and live musician for a multitude of world class national artists including Attila Csihar (Mayhem), Godless Rising, Fetid Zombie, Abhor & many more, Toby Knapp has kept very busy over the decades and has solidified his position as an all-around world-wide guitar hero, Virtuoso and legend!
Signing with Moribund Records in 2014 for his band Waxen, Knapp immediately released their second full-length album “Agios Holokauston” the same year, redefining black metal and simultaneously inventing an entirely new sub-genre “Shred-Black Metal”! Not one to lay idol, Knapp swiftly returned with 2016’s critically acclaimed “Weihung Auf Satan”, once again pushing the known boundaries of extreme metal. “Weihung” even won over the hard-liners at internet stalwart metalsucks.net who wrote “one of those “everything” albums, one as exciting as it is excellent.”
Waxen delivers skillfully played black metal with strong thrash and true metal leanings, drenched in Toby Knapp’s trademark guitar solo shred-mastery, all without compromising the extreme grimness that is black metals essence!
Knapp now returns with his 4th Waxen album and ultimate masterpiece “Terror Decree”, once again raising the stakes for musicianship in rock, metal & black metal! An album that is as dark and grim as anything by Sargeist or Leviathan while simultaneously encompassing and surpassing the epic guitar mastery of legends like Yngwie Malmsteen and Ritchie Blackmore! With “Terror Decree” Toby Knapp simultaneously sets a new standard for both shred-guitar and extreme metal!
“Weihung” is one of those “everything” albums, one as exciting as it is excellent. “Weihung” steps over a bunch of your favorite 2016 albums to the very front of your attention! Shocking. Crank it up! –Metalsucks.net
