Faust is some sort of super group that unites four very talented musicians. It is the brainchild of guitar player/vocalist Aleister, who was joined later by Ghiulz, founding member of Profanatum and Obscurity. To perform the bass duties, they enlisted no one else than the very well known bassist extraordinaire, Steve DiGiorgio. Those guys do not rely on machines, so Dariuz Brzozowski (Vader, Vesnia and Dimmu Borgir) was recruited for the drum duties.

This collective amount of talent makes what kind of music would you ask? They have crafted nine compositions of a technical death metal nature. Sharp, crisp, kicking tunes with excellent musicianship is what you get on this disc. What about the ambience/melodiousness of this CD? Somewhat absent, I have to say. If you are into intricacy and you don't mind having a low melodic rate in your music, then by all means get this album. If you are not bothered by redundancy in music, this is the album for you too. Fortunately for the rest of us, they had the good idea to include some cool acoustic arpeggios in just about every track, to make things more harmonious. A goodwill gesture and a surprising idea that is well appreciated. Those tonalities are often accompanied by Steve's tasty bass lines. This album is very guitar-driven with plenty of crunchy riffs, soaring solos and fast tremolo picking leads.

From Glory to Infinity is a top notch musicianship release, bound to please the technical death metal fans.
