Given that engrossing tone, A Crimson Grail's three parts are surprisingly distinct. Part One" is the most symphonic, as guitar waves alternately gather into peaks and cascade into near-silence. Uncannily, the guitars climb separately in small shifts, yet invariably meet at each apex. Chatham responds with an encore of a darker drone that seems to create howls and screams. Whether those noises came from the guitars or the delirious onlookers is hard to tell, but one thing is for sure: This wasn't just a performance, it was a larger-than-life sonic environment. And A Crimson Grail offers the best panoramic snapshot one could hope for.

A Crimson Grail is a three-part composition for a large electric guitar orchestra. Large may just be an understatement, as it was actually scored for up to 400 guitar players, though the performance on this release consists of a mere 200 guitarists, 16 bass players and percussion. It's a remarkable, engrossing work that plays against rather than panders to expectations.
