Achilleas Diamantis

Achilleas Diamantis - Confusion - 1999 - Legend Recordings

Confusion is a Greek prog-rock / jazz fusion band which plays mostly exploratory and often challenging instrumentals. Although the title of this album is “Confusion”, it is also the name of the band with Achilleas Diamantis as the guitarist and main composer. The band’s music ranges from a heavier, and more instrumental version of Steely Dan to the understated jazz/fusion style of Candiria. Fans of the Vai/Satriani/Johnson school of shredding may like this album, as well as anyone who likes guitarists like John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, Al DiMeola and a subtler Allan Holdsworth. Fans of bands like Attention Deficit, Gordian Knot, King Crimson, and Pallas, may also find something to like in Confusion's brand of jazzy progressive rock. A great album and HR by A.O.O.F.C.
