“MACHINE - Number 7 CD February 2008 Crave Underground >>Noted guitar shredder Machine (aka Steve Ricardo) has at long last released the first of two new instrumental guitar records. Number 7 displays just how versatile in styles he is capable of playing, from all-out wizardry comparable to Satriani and Vai to the classical flamenco style he first cut his teeth on at age 12 back home in Madrid, Spain. These twelve songs pretty much cover the whole range of genres- that is the many bands he has worked with like Messia, Cornucopia, Wreckin Crew (opened for Skid Row, LA Guns), Valhalla, and this year he is working in Jakkarta with Biff Naked. He even hung out with Zakk Wylde in Vancouver where he picked up some "pointers". Machine is the project that he calls his own and he plays all of the instruments on the cd, Machine knows no bounds as far as musical creativity, and one song in particular, Sticky Thumb, If you are a guitar fan, then this cd is definitely worth a listen”
