Serbian guitarist Dusan Jevtovic employs a broad playing field on his debut effort for Moonjune Records. He's certainly one to watch as he comingles progressive rock, progressive metal and shreds with the guileful impulsion, occasionally witnessed in New York City downtown- like fare. The guitarist's animated delivery, features mind-bending crunch chords and stinging single note lines as he bends his guitar into submission atop a first-rate rhythm section's largely, medium- tempo grooves.
In demand session artists, drummer Marko Djordjevic and fretless bassist Bernat Hernandez implement the power-packed pulse, along with the occasional tricky time signatures. Jevtovic's off- kilter thematic build-ups are gushing with hyper-mode and soaring lines, complemented with psycho riffing and metallic voicings. He ignites a firestorm on "Drummer's Dance," oozing with fragmented phrasings and a hail of distortion-heavy licks as he multitasks by generating the motif with nimble notes and hearty, bone-crushing chord developments. However, "One on One" is a notched-up, searing and Texas-tinted blues and country rock motif. And the guitarist varies the mix with a few searching ballads, but employs a slight twang during "Third Life," while also incorporating ethereal volume control techniques and sustained feedback for textural shadings.
Jevtovic does not rush matters. His concentrated focus is often framed on elongated thematic constructions and high-volume formulations. He makes every note count and doesn't dabble with speed demon type bravado, although there are passages where he systematically blows the roof. Therefore, Am I Walking Wrong? is a persuasive musical statement that discloses additional hues, shadings and deftly executed trinkets of sound on ensuing playbacks.
