The cd will take you on a nice journey! Mark Claytor has fashioned a nice set of material that deserves a good listen... you will not be disappointed!" Scott: "I'm loving the "Uprising" CD! Mark just flat out rocks. Every song, upbeat and jamming, taking a short journey w/Mark's wonderful solos. I will admit I'm only on "Black Magic Blues" the 7th song of this 13 song CD, but I just couldn't wait. If ya like instrumental rock, along the Satriani/Vai vein, then pick up Mark's two CDs, "Mark Claytor" and "Uprising". so there! :)" Anyone else?

I Am Entertainment Magazine review

Mark Claytor has rock and roll pumping from his heart into his guitar. His music is a clear example of what great rock music is all about because he doesn't need a vocalist to make his compositions sound great. "Spider Bit" is a perfect example of why I said Mark doesn't need a vocalist to sound good. Many instrumentalists will bore you to tears, but on this track Mark's guitar strings are thrashing all over the place, gaining the one man band a certain level of respect from me because he kept my attention throughout the entire track. In addition to Spider Bit, Mark offers up more great rock instrumentals, including: Memories Gone, Ice Flow, Pearlescent Dots, F5. Each of these tracks are oozing with great rock guitars and overall production. Overall, Mark's compilation of rock and roll instrumentals is some of the best guitar driven music I've heard in recent months and explains his #1 ranking on Reverbnation for his locale. You should check this guy out, I'm sure you'll agree if you're a rock fan. http://www.iaemagazine.com/music/2011/122011/mark-claytor.html
