ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Wall Of Soul", the second studio disc from young, gifted blues/rock axeslinger Lance Lopez of Dallas, Texas, features 12 killer trax (62 minutes) of outstanding,
powerful, intense, bad-ass, funky, bluesy, retro-70's Hendrixy heavy guitar power trio rock of the highest order.

On "Wall Of Soul" (his first disc for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, a new label dedicated to TOTAL GUITAR), Lance Lopez digs deep and produces an amazing set of awesome powerful bluesy heavy guitarriffage that is all his own and easily hits classic status. Lance Lopez is a true heavy guitar hero andriffmaster supreme. He also has an amazing powerful soulful voice that is the perfect match for his tough, bad-ass heavy guitar riffage. The "Wall Of Soul" disc is by far his finest hour and ultimate musical statement to date.

In creating the music for the "Wall Of Soul" disc, Lance Lopez has found the ultimate rhythm section to round out his heavy power trio in the form of John Garvin on drums and Daniel Williams on bass. Two awesome players in their own rite who lay down the perfect foundation / groove for brother Lance to trip his awesome heavy guitar riffage upon. And as an added bonus, the "Wall Of Soul" disc features special guests and good musical brothers ERIC GALES and DOUG PINNICK (KING'S X) on several killer trax. Eric Gales co-produced and lends his mega-awesome rippin' Hendrixy heavy guitar riffage on 3 killer trax and Doug Pinnick sings lead vocals on the epic classic last track: "Time", an amazing deep nine minute musical document that features both Eric Gales and Doug Pinnick along with brother Lance. "Time" is the perfect way to wind-down this amazing disc. The "Wall Of Soul" disc also features two killer heavy bad-ass cover trax in the form of "Spanish Castle Magic" by Jimi Hendrix and "Shame The Devil", a way-kool obscure Robin Trower track. Brother Lance gets down hard and does musical justice on both trax.

"Wall Of Soul" is an awesome heavy guitar disc that is HIGHLY recommended to fans of JIMI HENDRIX (long live the musical spirit of JIMI), ROBIN TROWER, FRANK MARINO, ERIC GALES,KING'S X, S.R.V., DOYLE BRAMHALL, EDDIE HAZEL, LENNY KRAVITZ (imagine Lenny Kravitz meets Hendrix!!!), STEVIE SALAS, RICHIE KOTZEN, JOE BONAMASSA, SKY HIGH and just about any other killer get-down rippin' blues/rock axeslingers you have ever heard. Lance Lopez is the "real" deal and he's definitely right up there with the best of them.

Combining a kool youthful funky image with musical skills that are unparalleled in the genre, Lance has played guitar with Buddy Miles & Lucky Peterson, gigging regularly in and out of Texas with his trio. He has also done several tours of Europe, opening for such notables as B.B. King and Steve Vai. Lance Lopez has built up a solid reputation as one of the up and coming heavy guitar stars on the scene.

The "Wall Of Soul" disc is the perfect platform for this rising young guitar star to step upon and reach the wider recognition and credit that he truly deserves. Never has there been a better time to take a musical trip with Lance Lopez on the "Wall Of Soul".

fans of Hendrix and SRV take note
I'm a newbie to the music of Lance Lopez, but I am super glad to be part of his circle of fans now. I found out about this disc through an article at www.kingsx.net which is the website for my favorite band, King's X, whose lead vocalist/bassist Doug Pinnick appears on Wall Of Soul. I bought this disc after learning that Doug sings lead vocals on a track called Time and backing vocals on another song. Doug is amazing, as always. But Lance... holy cow! This cat can flat out PLAY. He clearly has a Hendrix fetish (check out that cover photo!) but he backs it all up with his playing, which is a beautiful mixture of Hendrix, SRV, Santana, and maybe Dime from Pantera. If you are a sucker for guitar shredding, you can't help but be sucked into this disc. But don't think this is a heavy metal wankfest, because it isn't. This disc has SOUL. It grooves in all the right places, has plenty of Latin flavor, and is steeped in Austin blues-rock ala the Vaughan brothers. Lance has a nice vocal style, again falling somewhere between Stevie Ray and Hendrix, and good lyrics. I really dig this disc and I know it will be the centerpiece of many a summertime party at my house!

Johan Van Griff

One of the greatest guitar albums of all time...
At first glance of the album cover one might think, geez not another SRV or Hendrix clone, but when you hear the pure SONIC SOUL that pours from the speakers you will know that LANCE LOPEZ is his own man. You will certainly hear the influence of Hendrix and SRV but you will also hear a truly unique young guitarist/producer/songwriter fly through space and time with his Stratocaster/Marshall stack combo. From the heavily phase-shifted intro riffs of Love/Hate Relationship to the last flamenco-inspired fingerpicking of Time, Lopez serves up a versatile mix of Blues,Jazz,Funk and Rock that none of his young guitar rivals are even attempting. If this album would've been released between 1973 and 1975 Lance Lopez would already be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But that's not to say that this album is dated, these are just different times. Maybe one day the major American record labels will wake up and sign this visionary...

Not to be ignored
This album gathers together rock, funk and psychedelica and mashes them together to great effect. Every track on the album offers something different for the listener, and keeps you interested until the very last note.
