TREXEL – Balance Of Power [Retrospect Records remastered reissue +4]

TREXEL - Balance Of Power [Retrospect Records remastered reissue +4] full

As requested, here’s “Balance Of Power”, the first album by TREXEL in its Retrospect Records reissue. Originally released by himself in 1991, “Balance Of Power” is the culmination of multi-instrumentalist Benjamin Trechsel works between 1989 / 1991.
Trechsel adopted the artistic name Ben TREXEL (also the name of his band) however “Balance Of Power” comprises the his own recordings where he performs all instruments.
Mostly an electric guitar virtuoso, Ben sings pretty well too and as Berklee graduate, he’s able to play a wide array of instruments.
Despite his ablilities with the six strings – there’s a great guitar work all over the CD and some smokin’ solos – “Balance Of Power” is a song-oriented album with that late ’80s melodic hard rock / AOR classic sound.

The album was recorded at several sessions / studios and you can hear some different production style here and there, but always very professional, multi-tracking recorded.
At places you can hear some early BON JOVI, TRIXTER, a bit of STEVE LUKATHER solo, BRYAN HUGHES GROUP, HOWE II, etc
