Ocrilim - Annwn

Ocrilim is the nom-de-plume of guitarist Mick Barr, who has performed mightily with Orthrelm and with the Flying Luttenbachers, among others.

"Mick Barr is described in Wikipedia as "an American avant-garde metal guitarist", which is probably as close as anyone will come to paraphrasing the genre-defying compositions made by Barr and his occasional collaborators. The content of "Annwn" (comprised entirely of pieces for multiple electric guitars) is his crowning achievement. This album has as much to do with modern classical composition as it does with anything associated with the term "heavy metal". "Annwn" is an album that'll appeal to anyone with a sense of musical adventure."

"This isn't metal proper; it's metallic art-rock - beautiful and more emotionally engaging" - Alternative Press.
"...metallic pieces of awesome speed and complexity" - Time Out New York.
