Six powerful Electronicrock Instrumentals, full of Melodies, Chillout, Dance and Bang your Head in 32 Minutes!
Here's a link to an interview Stephan Schelle did with Guido Meyer at the Cue Open Air event on July 15, 2006.
Music composed and recorded on analog tape in 1996.
Digitally remastered and published for the very first time in 2006.
"Lightyears is a musical story of how our world probably could end in 7 billion years and how mankind will try to survive. When the Sun collapses it will also eliminate our whole solar system. So what will mankind do to survive? Well, in my imagination they're leaving the Earth by a spaceship to travel to another Class M Planet. In Lightyears, I have tried to describe this long travel in a musical way." Guido Meyer
"Meyer makes a tasteful mix of guitar music over layers of keyboards and drum machine rhythms. This indeed sounds smooth and contains enough sting. Nice riffs and solos fly out of your speakers. Magnificent title track and the closing track is an exercise in meditative hard rock. This is an excelllent release."
André de Waal
e-dition magazine (Netherlands)
"Great music. A special album in many ways. The synth's are delivered with real taste, featuring restrained, masterful programming. He has created some great sounds and overall the synth production is so smooth that I only can put my hat off. His talent is quite obvious. The guitar is played immaculately as well. I can't even compare his style to other artists. He has proved to be a a first class improvisation artist. Every track here is a winner, with the awesome title track leading the way."
