"Simplify Your Vision", the mega-awesome third studio disc from young, gifted blues/rock axeslinger Lance Lopez of Dallas, Texas, features 9 killer trax (60 minutes) of outstanding, powerful, intense, bad-ass, funky, bluesy, retro-70's Hendrixy heavy guitar power trio riffage of the highest order. “Simplify Your Vision” is an amazing blues/rock/funk explosion with mind-blowing heavy guitar riffage & solos that soar above the stratosphere. There is a new guitar hero in town and his name is Lance Lopez.
On "Simplify Your Vision" (his second disc for GROOVEYARD RECORDS, an indie label dedicated to outstanding TOTAL GUITAR music), Lance Lopez digs deep and produces an amazing set of awesome powerful bluesy heavy guitar riffage that is all his own and easily hits classic status. Lance Lopez is a true heavy guitar hero and riffmaster supreme. He also has an amazing powerful soulful voice that is the perfect match for his tough, bad-ass heavy guitar riffage. His style and intensity is definitely something that has been lacking in mainstream blues/rock music since the eighties when S.R.V. showed us what it was all about. The "Simplify Your Vision" disc is by far L.L.’s finest hour and ultimate heavy guitar musical statement to date. “Simplify Your Vision” is a super-sonic way-kool brain-damaging riff monster supreme and excellent follow-up to the killer “Wall Of Soul” disc.
Lance Lopez nailed down the “Simply Your Vision” disc during the summer of 2005 and called upon some of the best/heaviest session players from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area in the form of Wes Stephenson on bass guitar and Jamil Byrom on drums to round out the classic power trio groove machine and the results are amazing. Both Wes & Jamil are heavy-weight players in their own rite who kick serious ass as a powerhouse rhythm section for brother L.L. to lay down his killer heavy riffage on, bad-ass old-school retro-70’s power trio style!!! In producing the “Simplify Your Vision” disc, Lance Lopez went for a stripped-down, raw to the bone, live in the studio REAL heavy guitar power trio vibe, hence the apt “title” of the disc. From the thunderous grooves of “Day Of Dreams” to the heavy-duty funk/rock of “Shake Joint” to the beautifully melodic slow-blues heavy guitar magic of “2 Cigarettes” to the tour-de-force title track, this is some of Lance’s most spirited and mature work to date. Another highlight is the remake of the Robert Johnson delta-blues classic “Stones In My Passway” in which brother Lance and his awesome sidemen go on an incredible live in the studio 8 minute blues/rock power trio marathon heavy guitar journey. There is something for everybody on this amazingly impressive stellar heavy guitar disc.
