Arab Theme III is the surprisingly riff-heavy latest track to be released from the prodigal guitar maestro Samuel Yuri. If you’re a fan of guitar-driven, sludgy progressive rock you’re going to adore what Samuel has cooked up. The doom-impounding riffs of the guitar clash concordantly against the harsh snares and the tight rolls of the drum beat in this instrumental only mix. There is no need for lyrics when so much weight is carried within the melody and harmony of the instrumentals in this extended track. Earlier this year we checked out Samuel Yuri’s single Wind Before the Storm; Arab Theme III may not contain the same rhythmically raucous vocal offerings, but we’ll hold the composition in high regard all the same.
You can check out Arab Theme III (yes, it’s a questionable choice for a Prog Rock track name, but trust me) by Samuel Yuri now by heading over to YouTube. Any fans of Metallica, Megadeath, Apocalyptica and Dream Theatre won’t hesitate to stick the high-octane instrumental medley on their playlists.
To keep up to date with Samuel’s latest releases and news, head on over to Facebook and connect with the irrefutably talented musician.
