OCRILIM: He's a Fast Man, and we mean that in the best possible sense

Our man from Ocrilim, Mick Barr, has just been named one of the 50 fastest guitar players of all time according to the new issue of Guitar World. Here's what they had to say about him in case you can't read the tiny type in the jpeg above:

"He may look like some geek from a Tolkien fest who has an unhealthy obsession with Gollum, but precious few players can match Mick Barr's intensity and speed, which has reportedly been clocked at up to 24 notes per second. The music the Barr records under pseudonyms Octis, Ocrilim, and Orthrelm is challenging."

No shit.

Mick was listed between Trey Azagthoth (Morbid Angel) and some guy named Michael Angelo Batio, which is pretty sweet. Congrats Mick! Ocrilim will be hittin' the road soon so catch him if you can - he's lightnin' fast!
