Keith Miller / Press

“Keith Miller – Over The Abyss. Proving his talent further, this ten track album came out in early 2008. Once again Keith Miller is handling all the musical parts personally. The playing is spot on and the production is clear and crisp. The one thing I’ll say, is whilst the Satriani influences are clearly evident, the one thing Keith does not do is direct copies, he has his own style and it comes across throughout the album which is hugely enjoyable. Keith is an artist to keep your eye on."”

Nicky Baldrian - Fireworks Magazine 2012

“If you like Guitar shredders then you'll no doubt want to check out Keith Miller who plays with the fire and intensity of Steve Vai and Marty Friedman....and yet at the same time this guy plays with a passion and style all his own....After listening to Keith Miller's 2008 release Over The Abyss I was very impressed with what a gifted Guiatrist Keith Miller really is...While Over The Abyss is a great Shred album what I really enjoyed about this 10 track CD is that no two songs sound just a like.....Each song sounds different than the one that proceeded it and each song was played with a different feeling and emotion in mind. Jason Houston - Rock Zone”

“Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Over The Abyss and not only will you remember the hey day of all the great Guitar Heros of the 80's but you'll discover for yourself should be crowned one of today's great Guitar Shred King Gods but that he plays with 100% of his heart and soul......and with song titles as unique and original as "Crimson River" and "Crunch King" you know you're in for a real treat.

“Hot on the heels of his last releases, Groove Train and CHALK, the 10-track 2008 Over the Abyss pins you to the wall with another dazzling display of hard rock guitar instrumentals. Miller continues to burn. -20th Century Guitar Robert Silverstein - 20th Century Guitar ”

“ Underground guitar-great Keith Miller recently released his second instrumental solo record Chalk. Much like it's predecessor Groove Train (2003), and his previous band Plex'd, Keith Miller continues with his trademark style intricate guitar-blazing groove-metal with Chalk. Combining several classic metal guitar influences from Michael Schenker to Marty Friedman (with a sound somewhat similar to Marty's early solo work on Dragon's Kiss) Keith Miller jams very tasteful guitar licks atop intricate King's X meets Metallica-type grooves. Keith has a great sense for timing and rhythm and knows not to over-indulge giving the music a chance to breathe before laying down his next soulful guitar lick. Songs such as the title track, "Grid Lock," "Inner Turbulence," and "Rubber Room" prove that Keith Miller has what it takes to contend with today's guitar greats.

"Chalk" is the brand-new release and it's pretty much the same thing here if you like your instrumenal stuff a bit more progressive and edgier. There's one vocal song on here called "Crazy" and it's pretty good and is somewhat along the lines of what Kotzen does nowadays. The heaviest song off either album is on this one by the name of "Inner Turbulance" which is very uptempo and then you get tracks like "Chalk", "Saphire Pools","Grid Lock" and "Clock Talk" with the heavy progressive delivery; plus it helps with tonality to have a 7-stringer!!! "Flip The Switch" was interesting as the main riff took me back to the 80's when riffing was studied and was a thing of one-upmanship by many bands. Two albums and not a bad song off either one of them...now that's impressive!! So do yourself a favor and check this guy out, you won't be disappointed.

"Groove Train", the 2003 debut has a nice heavy flavor to it with licks from the blackest depths of hell without relying on the monotonous finger-diarrhea that many of these guitarists do on their very first album like they have to prove something. Fans of "Satch", Gary Hoey, SRV and Torben Enevoldsen will definately understand the wizardry of Keith Miller. He may not be a huge name but he's not a clone either;just has influences like everyone else. Recommended songs off this CD (despite I would say all of them!!) woud be: "Groove Train", "Thump-N-Groove", "King", "Grab It" and "Engine #9". 9 tracks and a bit over 38 minutes.

“Keith Miller (U.S.)- "Groove Train" and "Chalk" (2003/2004 self) From the cold plains of Minnesota, the possibility of an immediate thaw is imminent once any of these discs are played. The molten strings that lay on the glacial frontier are owned by this axesmith, Keith Miller. One of those unheard ofs, Keith Miller, like many guitarists, started at an early age and was self-taught before placing themself in a school for more advanced knowledge of the craft. Keith did that before entering Musictech College in Minneapolis to hone his skills even more. He also has the similairity of playing in childhood/teenage year bands and had some success with a band called Plex'd which he still is part of today.

“KM-GUITARSLINGER.COM - FEB 2005 - 20th Century Guitar Magazine Minnesota-based guitarist Keith Miller is receiving lots of well earned praise for his two recently released self-produced CDs. Comparisons to Joe Satriani, Metallica and the Galactic Cowboys aside, with the release of Groove Train (2003) and Chalk (2004) Miller is staking out some rare musical territory all his own. A virtual steamroller of hard-rock guitar instrumental guitar sounds, Miller wrote, recorded and mixed all the sounds on both CDs, while demonstrating impressive guitar skills as well as his expertise in the studio. Among the guitars Miller features on the CDs are a variety of Carvin 6 & 7 string models . Both CDs fall right into the hard rock instrumental realm and Miller comes through with some dazzling guitar tones and techniques to further assure his rising guitar stature.

“Chalk is the melodically shredded metal and rock CD from Keith Miller, which follows on the path laid out by his previous CD, "Groove Train". The nimble fingered guitarist seldom indulges to excess, but manages to offer plenty of thrills and chills on the ten instrumental cuts (plus one vocal track). Miller is a graduate from Musictech College of Music in Minneapolis, and is a member of PLEX’D a band that has received rave reviews in national magazines, as well as some label interest. If you enjoy chops-happy excursions, turn-n-burn fretting, fast electric guitar lines and slamming rhythms and smoldering riffs, look no further than Chalk - a gem of raw power.
