Description of Cranial Feedback by Steve Cichon
Steve Cichon now has a third album hitting streets, although you may not recognize his name yet... known also for his work with Vicious Circle (the original one.) Steve isn t singing on this one, rather sticking to his God given talent of guitar. Steve has a gift for blending wonderful melody and composition together into a beautiful sound-scape as well as showing off his technical skills without overshadowing the music. Steve blends many textures and tones of guitar, metal, hard rock, classical, spanish acoustic, guitar synth, jazz, new age, along with varying guitar styles meshed together into each song surprisingly smoothly and all with his own sense of musicality basted in a heavy edge that urges the listener to raise his fists evoking the live arena concert experience. Remember the wonderful music from the 70's heavy rock and progressive movements, Steve manages to capture the essence of this "Real" and Un-commercial liberation of no boundaries with this collection of ten tracks he offers us on "Cranial Feedback". This album is truly a musical mind journey to take you through your own great depths. Steve said this about the albums creation... I wanted to create a sound-scape of the perfect live show, when I began writing the album, I visualized myself on a large world stage outdoors and in my mind the music wrote itself, flowing out of me so freely, I felt I had to include all of the aspects that I heard in this visualization to have the listener really understand and feel of what I experienced during the creation process.
