"AWARDED AMONGST TOP 10 AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING COLLEGES IN INDIA"
Over the past decade there have been many new releases of instrumental rock albums. The majority of the popular guitar heroes from the 1980s have made rejuvenated and generally well-received comebacks, thanks largely to the revitalized sound apparent on their recent releases. Artists such as Steve Morse, Marty Friedman, Paul Gilbert, Ron Jarzombek, Joe Satriani and Malmsteen have continued releasing instrumental rock music and touring with great success. However, it is still extremely rare to hear an instrumental rock tune on the radio, or see one on the music charts. Les Fradkin has popularized the Beatles’ music catalog as guitar-based instrumental rock on the Apple iTunes music download service.
The 2000s gave way for a new style of performer. John Lowery (a.k.a. John 5), released a solo instrumental album after leaving Marilyn Manson in 2003. Vertigo is composed of a fusion of metal, rockabilly, rock and roll, and bluegrass musical styles. The album was a success, and the album after that, Songs for Sanity, which features guest appearances by Steve Vai and Albert Lee, was met with more success, becoming one of the top selling records on the record label Shrapnel. He followed this in 2007 with The Devil Knows My Name, which features Joe Satriani, Jim Root, and Eric Johnson.
The 2000s have seen a rise in the popularity of bands that have been labeled post-rock; many of these bands have created instrumental rock songs. Constellation Records has released some of the best-known examples of instrumental post-rock, such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Do Make Say Think.
Within the indie rock label, bands such as Ratatat and Delicate Steve are popular instrumental rock acts.
In Europe, French guitarist Jean-Pierre Danel had a smash #1 hit album with Guitar Connection, receiving a platinum disc in France in 2006. He followed with several top five hits and gold discs, and duets with guitar heroes such as Hank Marvin of the Shadows, Scott Henderson, Albert Lee and Andy Powell of Wishbone Ash. In 2013, he launched a charity with fellow Queen guitarist Brian May.
Austin TV, Mogwai, the Cancer Conspiracy, the Mercury Program, Irepress, God Is An Astronaut, Russian Circles and Explosions in the Sky are other examples of instrumental post-rock.
Guitarist Omar Rodriguez Lopez’s solo albums typically are instrumental (Old Money) or mostly instrumental (Se Dice Bisonte, No Bufalo).
In the late 2000s a new style of heavy metal called djent emerged. Some of the leading bands in the scene such as Animals as Leaders, Cloudkicker, Chimp Spanner and Bulb are instrumental acts, while many others started as instrumental acts before later acquiring vocalists.
