“Trilogy” is one of the prime album works that populated the second wave of neoclassical metal.  The first faces of that genre goes back to guys like Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple, Rainbow) and Randy Rhoads of Quiet Riot and Ozzy Osbourne.  Yngwie Malmsteen’s first studio album, “Rising Force” achieved huge success to revolutionize the second wave of neoclassical metal.  It also displayed Malmsteen’s technical demanding style of playing guitar.  “Trilogy” does the same thing in songs like “You Don’t Remember,” “Liar,” “Fire,” and “Trilogy Suite Op:5.”  The speed of his systematic music presence is important to drive the heavy metal sub-genre into the air.  “Fire” constructed not only with classical music elements, but with some touches of Van Halen sound.  It is no surprise that this album would become a huge achievement for the king of neoclassical shred metal.
