I first heard the name Chris Poland somewhere on the Shawn Lane forum. Most notably, Chris played with the metal band Megadeth in the eighties and moved on to a solo career in the early nineties. OHM, Chris’s latest project seemingly has returned him to his fusion roots. Together with bassist Robert Pagliari and drummer David Eagle this power trio cranked out an outstanding CD that gracefully mixes intelligent melodies, world music vibes and guitar shredding power with sophisticated compositions and soloing angles. Apart from Chris, Robert Pagliari rips on the bass with running bass lines and nice chordal work that reminds you of Jaco influence. David Eagle?s power drumming keeps the rhythm section tight throughout the cd. The opening track sets the mood for the entire cd with Tibetian Chants intermingled with electric voltage, sure to increase your blood pressure. The compostions are widely varied which demonstrates the compostional abilites of Chris. We were thoroughly impressed with the sounds, technique and compositions on this recording. The music flows with great ease giving the listener everything they could ask for. For the fusion purist this is a great listen. Chris shows his skills as well as opening things up for his fellow musicians, allowing them to have a voice of their own. The rich musical textures and the melodic styles on this CD make it a must listen . An honest and sincere piece of work.
