Roma Ivakov is an Australian guitarist who puts out phenomenal solo work that has elements of shred and djent. To me, he sounds like John Petrucci of Dream Theater meets Meshuggah. Yes, that is a massive compliment, and he deserves it. He already has an album out titled Golden Stellar Pyramid, which you can stream and purchase here. The playing and composition is stellar, and I’m even more excited for his upcoming album! From what I understand, some tracks on the new album might have vocals too. His untitled album should be coming out soon, according to his Facebook page. Here are some videos of him playing some new songs that will be on the new album.
