Imagine the sounds of Dream Theater, Symphony X, Jason Becker, George Bellas, Yngwie Malmsteen, The Lord of the Rings movie soundtrack and 19th century classical music. Now imagine a great band with not one, but two guitar virtuosos - each with his own innovative style and tone. Hess has so much more to offer it's fans compared to many other instrumental guitar releases. Three years went into the compositional process alone. The music of Opus 2 is rich in musical depth, progressive key changes and rhythms, orchestration, great passions of emotion, and of course, extreme double virtuoso guitar work. You have heard progressive bands, instrumental shred guitar masters, neoclassical virtuosos, film music and very dramatically expressive music before, but the only place you are likely to hear all of this in one CD is Opus 2.
