ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There's something to be said for having conviction and dedication for your art in a business that is so watered down that it has become a shallow shell of it's former self. LoNero is one of those rare bands that strays away from trends and the beaten path. They are four musicians that got together to create a new genre of instrumental rock. Guitarist Bill Lonero, drummer Steve Spicer, bassist Mike McKaigg and guitarist William Baglivio created Guitarcore, a genre all their own. So infectious that even those that don't listen to rock find themselves headbanging and foot tapping to their unique brand of Instrumental Guitarcore.

LoNero's debut cd "Relentless" (released 2007 with a month long promotion from Apple Computers) is 14 tracks of punishing rhythms, beautiful acoustic and infectious melodies. Built on the principal that the song should always come first, "Relentless" proves that you can still be instrumental and gain a wide and varied fan base without having to follow what others have already done.

Unlike most instrumental artists LoNero is a band in the truest sense of the word. Everyone contributes to the unique sound that is LoNero. But LoNero is not just a band that records in the studio album after album. They are a dynamic group that performs live every chance they get.

Currently, the band plans an extensive tour and with endorsements/sponsorships from products such as Peavey, Hot Picks, Seymour Duncan, Dunlop, Rebel Straps and Lava Cables the band plans on "playing 'til we drop" says Bill Lonero. "I've had the privilege of playing or recording with the likes of Cliff Williams (AC/DC), Simon Kirke (Bad Company), Stu Hamm (Joe Satriani), Gigi Gonaway (Mariah Carey), Mike Mangini (Extreme and Steve Vai) and Polo Jones (Zucchero and Whitney Houston) so I understand what hard work is and am prepared to do what it takes to build our fan base. We love playing live because we can connect with our fans."

Barrage of beautiful notes
WOW! I mean wow!
LoNero have most certainly got the funk! An instrumental band that hit you like a barrage of beautiful notes with dancey rhythms and the most complex solos I’ve heard and loved... now I’m not a massive fan of guitar wanking but these guys don’t wank with their instruments! Like painting a beautiful painting with so many colors bringing in influences from all genres of music and creating a soft complex cushion of sound. Has a sense of Jimi Hendrix acid trip songs and almost just as genius and so many differences in mood. The band is very well knitted together and throws you in to their world and swings you around. Like a little adventure in their songs

Guitarcore
There’s quite literally an endless amount of music genres these days, but none focuses more on the talent and melodic power of a guitar than guitarcore. A new term coined by California instrumental guitarist Bill Lonero (whose band LoNero — same name, different spelling — champions the genre), guitarcore brings a focus on the guitar that is different from traditional instrumental guitar. With two CDs already on the market, LoNero’s guitar-focused music is catching on with fans and drawing attention from industry watchers. While Lonero is humble about his abilities, he’s undoubtedly one of the best “feeling” guitarists I’ve heard in quite some time.

Best Instrumental I Have Ever Heard!!!!!
LoNero is from California and play the best instrumental music I have ever heard; It is not just instrumental skills, but also a variety of arrangement and major difference of composition that blows you away after listening to it. Its not just guitar solo after guitar solo on the top of rhythms and sounds- the whole band is equal in the sound picture. On top of it all, even if it is hard rock, the best thing about LoNero is that they display something as noble as feeling and living the music, something that you don’t come across a lot in today’s rock scene. Guitar players and instrumental players can actually feel how the music blends and separates far beyond our belief and capability to understand. LoNero has really created something new and refreshing, that also the international arena of all types and on all areas are moved by. They are everything you can expect as a guitar enthusiast and music lover. This band will definitely be with me for a long time.

Now the bragging is enough and its time to introduce you to the members of this band.
on acoustic and electric guitars we have Bill Lonero, on bass and synth is Mike McKaigg, and behind a wall of percussions we catch a glance of Steve Spicer, also with a contribution on synth, Last we have William Baglivio, wait he went to take a leak, but he will be back with rhythm guitar on one track.
Guest performers listed are Zack Harrison on additional rhythm guitar on tracks 4 and 11, and Frank Casanova on 2 solo guitar on track 7. Let me say that track 6 is a very nice little piece of harmony and slide guitar done like a connoisseur by Bill Lonero, and in the intro of track 7 it is easy to recognize the sound of Robert Plant, guess what song the radio track is from. Track 12 is the bass maestro’s playground and he uses it with heart and soul.
Besides track 12 and 14 which are LoNero’s version of the traditional "Amazing Graze" Bill Lonero is the leading actor when it comes to composing with contributions from Steve Spicer and Zack Harrison, this makes it easy to know which instrument are used to highlight the melody and separate the melody lines from the rhythmical and progressive lines. And it is with great joy to listen to each instrumentalist getting to use his instrument with room to play in the contributions.
When I put the cd on the repeat function is on, and then I just press play and lean back in my soft chair enjoying LoNero, start a new review, yell at the neighbor for driving to fast in the curb or just plain empty my head, LoNero has come up with the concept, produced, illustrated and designed Relentless to perfection. And its recorded by Juan Urteaga at TriDent studio in Pachecho, California. Thank You LoNero.

One of the BEST albums
I FUCKING LOVE YOU GUYS!!! This is one of the BEST albums I've ever heard. Ya'll don't need no stinkin' singer. Shit that rocks that good speaks for itself.

Jason Nipper

Incredible!
This cd speaks not only to guitar players and instrumental musicians, but ALL musicians and music lovers alike. This is a tightly woven mixture of musical styles all coming together as one well balanced work of art.

Tim Sauers

I have to say that it was refreshing to the the music that LoNero has put out. It is everything you could want as a guitar player and music fan. These guys are defintiely going to be in my collection for a long time to come.

Beautiful work of art
What I dig about LoNero, despite it's just great to listen to and I revel in the way it shapes my mood, what I dig is that all of the instruments are actively a part of everything. It isn't background with a dominant guitar, like wallpaper for the solo. I'm not such a good listener to have the musical finesse to truly appreciate the richness of the sound you create, but I sense enough to know that if I wanted to share a sound with someone who was a true master of rock, I'd let them have a listen to LoNero. On top of which, even though it's hard rock, it's got a positive vibe that emanates from the music emotionally!
