"Shred. In different worlds, the word has very different meanings. For paper, for example, shred is NOT a good word! In the world of guitar, especially hard rock and metal, however, shred is an excellent word. If a guitar player is said to "shred", he is being described as possessing not only great speed in his playing, but also a certain knack for the way the notes are put together. When speaking of "shredders" in the guitar world, many names come to mind...Malmsteen, Vai, Friedman, Satriani. All possess incredible talent, speed, accuracy, and a certain sense of rhythm and melody that many other players only strive for. And while not a name most would commonly see alongside these legends of the axe, Pastor Brad has shown on this, his latest effort, that he is certainly up to the task of joining these guitar heroes, if not in name recognition, then, at the least, in level of respect... Shredded Sweet is easily the best instrumental disc I have heard in a couple of years and is well worth tracking down."

"Shredded Sweet, the third instrumental hard rock release from Altoona, Pennsylvania based minister Pastor Brad, continues where his very fine 2007 offering Reshredded leaves off. The album heads in an instrumental guitar (i.e.: “shred”) based direction certain to appeal to fans of Joe Satriani (Surfing With The Alien), Steve Vai (Passion And Warfare), David Chastain (Within The Heat & Elegant Seduction), Joey Tafolla (Out Of The Sun), James Byrd (Son Of Man) and Fourth Estate (Finesse And Fury & See What I See)."
