8/10 Ant 18 June 2010

The power of one a single man and a 23 string Banjo should never be underestimated and Mister Metzger is a testament to that. Here he takes us on a forty minute journey through the cosmos using the instrument way beyond our expectations of its limits. He plucks away through tone scales like a real demon moving from tender and sensitive fingering to more energetic and furious plucking, never losing his way or vision. His playing is awe-inspiring to say the least, with great moments of tension and release. It sounds like the man literally has twenty three fingers as he moves them across the board in a very presice and intense fashion. Oh yeah this guy is the real deal for sure. This was recorded in one take in a de-sanctified century old cathedral in Northern Minnesota which cements the aforementioned notion. A vibrant and captivating recording/ document of an awesomely gifted player. Great stuff as always from the Locust label.
