Great review by Klaus Reckert at Gaesteliste.de:
Kaptain Carbon from Hollywood Metal gives Stringweaver 7 Hammers out of 9.
“Mr. Fastfinger constructs songs that are more like water slides which do 5 loopy loops and send the listeners through seven hoops of fire all while on a motorcycle. It’s the strangest water ride ever. “
Digital mini album. Release date: 21/5/2013
Mr. Fastfinger’s third release “Stringweaver” is a mini album with four musical scenes. The neck bends, the notes fly, the pick is sharper than an arrow. The 6 strings are vibrating with all emotions, passion, joy, excitement, surprising elements and positive energy. Music is drawing images and scenes in your ear. Have sense of adventure, open your mind for this vivid ear traveling experience.
He’s got that flow, he’s back on the beach.
