Xavier Boscher – Pentagramme (Orfeo Lab, 2016)
Pentagramme is a solo album by French composer, guitarist and vocalist Xavier Boscher. He incorporates a mix of progressive rock, heavy metal, hard rock and pop.
The highlights of the album are the progressive rock-oriented sections, including “Volupté,” which has a great ambiance, electric piano and fretless bass; “Géométrie intime”, a piece with great shredding; the evolving piece “Quinacridoine” that has a Joe Satriani flavor; and the epic “Les Voyageurs du Temps.”
