Circus of Sound
Tone Center

Former guitarist with heavy-metal band Megadeth, Chris Poland channels his fusion leanings into this Los Angeles-based power trio. On their fourth outing, OHM touches on aspects of King Crimson and Brand X, with Poland unleashing his mind-boggling legato chops on fusion romps like “Fun House,” “Point Omega” and “The Black Hand,” the bluesy “System of a Clown” and the rock-fueled title track. Fans of guitar heroes Allan Holdsworth, Scott Henderson and Eric Johnson will dig these fretboard pyrotechnics.
