In the most prestigious jazz Magazine in Sweden: Orkesterjournalen (with a surprising Allan Holdsworth content) translation below

"Musik som utforskar nya universum. Musiker som experimenterar med sounds, elektronik och kollektivt samspel. Musiker som fortsätter testa för att misslyckas för att sedan fortsätta att utforska för att sedan utvecklas för att i det kollektiva samspelet ta allt ett steg längre. För vad kan man gå när man är i ett kaosartat musikaliskt tillstånd? Alltför många gånger blir tillståndet ett stressmoment utan ett inre lugn hos musikerna och det resulterar ofta i att maxar man skiten ur allt och sedan landar lite halvdant. Känslan efteråt blir ofta förutsägbar och platt. Eller så tar man allt ett steg längre som GuitCussion och dessutom skapar en intressant skiva som sprudlar av eftertänksamhet, närvaro och experimentlusta!

GuitCussion är tillbaka med skivan Exit Wonderland. Musiken rör sig från fusion till friform, från friform till noise, från noise till något slags storslaget och tankarna går till bland annat fusionlegendaren Allan Holdsworth och hans rymdlika klanger och fina melodier.
Åter till kaosartade musikaliska tillstånd och att ta allt ett steg längre. GuitCussion är mästare på detta. De vrider och vänder på det kollektiva kaoset och låter det inte bli ett stressmoment som måste avklaras utan det blir just ett tillstånd de utnyttjar och experimenterar med på olika vis. I vissa skeden används det som ett kompinstrument, ibland låter det som en polyfonisk komposition och ibland som en bakgrund till melodiösa gitarrmelodier.

Exit Wonderland är en spännande skiva med mycket närvaro som utforskar nya outforskade planeter ute i universum!

Charlotta Andersson "

Review, translated (very fast) from Swedish (by Stefan Thorpenberg ):

"Music that explores new universe. Musicians who experiment with sounds, electronics and collective interaction. Musicians who continue to test and fails, and then continue to explore and then develop to the collective interactions taking everything one step further. For where can one go when one is in a chaotic state musically? Too many times it becomes a state of stress without an inner calmness of the musicians and it often results in that one maxes the crap out of anything and then lands a bit mediocre. The feeling afterwards is often predictable and flat.

Or, instead, taking everything a step further like GuitCussion and additionally create an interesting album, bursting with thoughtfulness, presence and experimentation!

GuitCussion is back with the CD Exit Wonderland. The music moves from fusion to freeform, from freeform to noise, from noise to some sort of grandness and it can slightly remind about fusion legend Allan Holdsworth and his space-like sounds and beautiful melodies.
Then back to the chaotic musical conditions and taking everything one step further. GuitCussion are masters at this. The twists and turns of the collective chaos is never a stress factor that must be completed, but it is just a state they utilize and experiment in different ways. In some stages, it is used as an accompaniment instrument, sometimes it sounds like a polyphonic composition, and sometimes as a background to the melodic guitar melodies.
Exit Wonderland is an exciting album with much presence that explores new unexplored planets out there in the universe!
