LISTEN ON SPOTIFY:


JOHN 5 ON GOD TOLD ME TO:

“I wanted to make it a more enthralling experience. I love instrumental guitar records, but I also understand that, as a listener, it can be difficult to get through a whole album of just that one thing. It’s a lot easier when there are a lot of different styles of music and a lot of different moods to cycle through. So my idea was to sequence the album as if you were listening to an iPod on shuffle. It gives your ears a break from all the crazy shred stuff.”

ALBUM REVIEWS:

…fans accustomed to John 5’s antiques [sic] will be pleased with the heavier side God Told Me To offers, while the acoustic side will represent a much needed change even for them, since all his previous albums were going in the same direction. It’s great how these songs end up being the best thing this album has to offer. This album is a must for any fans and newcomers alike, but also one of the most interesting and enjoyable albums of 2012 yet. Also, the CD comes with a cool DVD containing live footage and a day in John 5’s life on tour with Rob Zombie. Grab it.

In any case, the greasy slide guitars of “Welcome to Violence” blast Ministry’s “Jesus Built My Hot Rod” off to Planet Shred, while sonic polar opposites like “Asland Bump” and “The Castle” pay all-acoustic tribute to the pastoral Welsh cottage of “Bron-Yr-Aur” (see Zeppelin, Led; Page, Jimmy). Elsewhere, “Killa Fornia,” “The Hill of the Seven Jackals,” and “The Lust Killer” point straight to guitar hero ground zero with their Satriani and Vai-isms, yet “Creepy Crawler” is a richly orchestrated ballad and the aptly named “Noche Acosador” delivers a striking display of classical Spanish guitar.
