The word "shred" in the band name is a dead giveaway to what might be found here -- sure enough, there are shredding guitar solos in abundance. The band's first two albums were in fact entirely instrumental guitarfests, while on Cauldron Of Evil a vocalist was recruited (actually two, as the album was recorded at two different times with different lineups). Cauldron has the band in overdrive, more speed metal than thrash, with the guitars of one Dr. Frankenshred taking center stage of course. This is the kind of stuff that appeared on Shrapnel Records back in the day. Guitar hero fans rejoice, the Doctor has major guitar chops and is not afraid to display them.
