In 2018, Toby Knapp signed with Moribund Rockers! for his newest solo recording and immediately revealed his 7th full-length album, “Blizzard Archer”! In 2019, “Blizzard Archer” will cast Knapp’s solo-guitar sorcery upon the world to invigorate instrumental rock & metal, and revive the genres for the 21st Century!
Eager to share the splendor of his talent, Moribund asked Toby about his intentions with this new release; “On “Blizzard Archer” my main focus was to create a vintage sounding guitar album where the guitars sound like guitars. I wanted melodic instrumental songs that were more than a display of over the top “tough guy” brutality, because I introduced and mastered that sound decades ago on Shrapnel Records.”
The result is a carefully crafted soundscape that seems it could have been dreamed up by Malmsteen or Blackmoore, but only in their most feverish strokes of triumph. Toby Knapp has a style all his own, filled with melodies that hearken to moments of glory and reflection, steeped in ancient themes of magic, darkness and light.
