November 2008


I have received the first review of my second EP "Infinity", more reviews will come in the next months! Cd-Review "Marios Metal Mania". This Conrad Hultermans, born in 1974, started playing the guitar at the age of 17. During the years, he got influenced by guitarists like Steve Morse, Vinnie Moore, Alex Skolnick, Steve Lukather, John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert and Marcel Coenen. Conrad played different kinds of musicstyles and played in several bands during the past and present. Besides playing in some bands, Conrad is also focussing on instrumental songs. In 2004 he already released his first solo EP, "Inner". And this year he has released his second EP, "Infinity", once again with 4 tracks. Opener "Loose Change" is the most heavy, almost thrashy song on this EP. It sounds like a Michael Angelo-Alex Skolnick-80's Shrapnel guitar hero song. Heavy & thrashy, but played with a lot of melody also. The following songs "Everlasting Love" and "Let It Breathe" are more melodic, almost dreamy songs, with beautiful guitar playing from Conrad. And the last, and most emotional song, "New Life" was written for his nephew. It's a good example of inspiration for ,his songs ; reflections and experiences which had a certain impact in his life. Most of his songs on "Infinity" reminds me of an emotional guitarist like Satriani, but on the other hand, there are also influences from shred guitarists like Michael Angelo Batio. But he always plays with a lot of melody and emotion!

January 2005


Here you have my first 3 reviews of the "Inner" EP.....
In the Music >> section you can listen to 2 songs of the forthcoming debut CD of my thrashmetal band X-tinXion. Cd-Review "Truemetal".

This Dutch guitarist is playing guitar since 10 years. He has played in several bands in the past, and for the moment he plays in a thrash and a rock/metal cover band. He also has played a lot of different music styles such as Rock, Metal and even Jazz. After 10 years of playing the guitar, he thought it was time to release an instrumental solo release.
On "Inner" are 4 songs which all have a playing time of 5 or 6 minutes. His main influences range from Steve Morse, Steve Lukather, Vinnie Moore, Joe Satriani till Alex Skolnick.
His songs are reflections of experiences which have had a certain impact in his life. For instance, the last and most emotional song "Memories" is written in loving memory of his grandma. The other 3 songs have also nice themes and melodies, mixed with several shred guitar moments. Sometimes Conrad reminds me of an emotional guitarist like Satriani, but his shred parts remind me most of all of Michael Angelo's album "No Boundaries".
With "Inner", Conrad Hultermans has released a very interesting instrumental EP, with a nice balance between emotion (Satriani, Vai...) and shred (Michael Angelo, Francesco Fareri...)

Cd-Review "Zware metalen".
Conrad Hultermans - Inner
Eigen Beheer 2004

Zo dan, hier hebben we te maken met een solo EP "Inner" van onze eigeste echte forummer Ratje, en wat voor een EP!!! De 4 nummers zijn van een dermate schoonheid dat elke gitaarmuziek liefhebber hier wel pap van zal lusten. Het is een instrumentale EP geworden die bomvol staat van fantastisch gitaar soleer geweld. De fantastische opener "Song For Alex" kent een heerlijke riff met daaroverheen een schitterende melodielijn, die mij tot het meefluiten bracht. Je moet het maar kunnen, zo'n pakkende melodie verzinnen.

In het nummer "Summer In Your Eyes" laat Conrad zien dat ie vlugge vingers heeft en vliegt hij over het fretbord en laat hij elke noot klinken zoals die hoort te zijn. De gitaarsound tijdens de solos is prachtig, zo wil ik menig gitarist zijn effecten pedaal wel afgestemd horen staan. Het meest "agressieve" nummer van deze EP is het nummer "9/11". enige is wel dat ik de riff van dit nummer erg vind lijken op de riff uit het eerste nummer, maar goed een kniesoor die daar op let. Ook dit nummer is doorspekt met soleerwerk. heerlijk.

Het laatste nummer van deze EP "Memories" is opgedragen aan de oma van Conrad. Dit betekent een zeer gevoelig rustig ballad achtig nummer wat laat zien dat Conrad ook bij het langzamere werk prima uit de voeten kan (of moet ik zeggen: prima uit de vingers kan...?). Een woord wil ik me eigenlijk niet in de mond halen over deze plaat maar ik genoodzaakt dat als kritisch recensent wel te doen. Dat is het enige minpunt van deze EP, waarover ik dus maar een woord kan zeggen en dat is: Drumcomputer... Meer zeg ik niet want het is het gezien de kwaliteit van deze solo EP niet waard. www.zwaremetalen.com

Cd-Review "Lords of metal".

Ralph: De Nederlandse gitarist Conrad Hultermans brengt met 'Inner' zijn eerste solo EP op de markt. Naast het volspelen van dit, volledig instrumentale, schijfje is Hultermans ook nog actief in de thrash metal formatie X-tinXion en de cover band Metal Studs.

Helaas voor Hultermans liggen de gloriedagen van dit soort instrumentale projecten van zogeheten supergitaristen ver achter ons, want 'Inner' had in deze periode niet misstaan. Sfeervolle composities kenmerken 'Inner'. 'Song For Alex' en 'Summer In Your Eyes' zitten uiteraard vol met solo's in alle soorten en maten maar kennen ook stuwende riffs en herkenbare thema's. 'Inner' doet me nog het meest denken aan Vinnie Moore's solowerk, als we dan toch een vergelijking moeten maken. Minpunt vind ik toch het duidelijke gebruik van een drumcomputer. Zowel het geluid als de programmering doen onder voor een echte drummer, maar om nu te zeggen dat het overheersend irritant is; nee.

Voor Conrad is dit een mooie manier om dit soort inspiratie aan CD toe te vertrouwen en de bands waarin hij speelt hebben er een uitstekend gitarist aan hem. Een relaxte EP waar af en toe wat vuurwerk inzit.Score: 78/100 www.lordsofmetal.nl
