Pierre-Marie E. REVERDY       Illuvatar
Rupture Music (release: July 1st, 2008)

Illuvatar is the solo project of French LEX TALIONIS' guitar player Pierre-Marie Reverdy. All along the seven tracks, the drums and the narratives confer a martial side to his music. And with the use of a guitar-synth (as well as electric guitars), he leads us in a world of a next century, ruled by a military dictatorship. That's the way I feel the situation anyway.
It's not just one more album from a guitar hero again… well… it is but the whole thing brings an original and personal touch to this kind of project. For the rest, fans of instrumental technique may appreciate the virtuosity of the artist…Laurent
