Clean work, and so creative.
man...this is some pretty awesome stuff. I like peace,no boundaries,2 X again,and rain forest. THESE ARE IN ORDER IN...top 4?aye aye aye what is wrong with me???top 4?
He was guitar player for nitro he's in top ten world best guitar player
Peace is his greatest track ever... also A NEW DAY shows his dynamics .... awesome
He's known as the fastest guitarist in the world and is one of the instructors for Doug Marks's guitar courses.
Who is this guy? No bio, never really heard of him. Kicks A** on the neck tho.. Nice sweeps, nice phrasing, good clean sound.. Wonder why he's unknown..? Or have I been under a rock?
All i have to say is That listening to this brother. Play is Really a cool experience. Rock on Shred Man , Batio.
This should be under Michael Angelo Batio, seeing as how that's his full name. Where the heck is Nitro?
Yeah, definitely one of the very best shredders of all time. I have some training books and videos by him and some of the lessons have techniques and practices you can't find anywhere else.
who cares about fast? thats cool and all, but this guy is very creative. Its hard to play minor modes at fast speeds without sounding like yngwie Malmsteen. So, props to Angelo; very nice feel and tone.
he is pretty awesome...bu t fastest ever? that title belongs to shawn lane peeps.
Jacqui, U never heard of Micheal Angelo Batio? He is a mad shredder that invented a 4neck guitar.

roboblaze
Great guy and one of the best guitar players alive
jacquisun
Why have I never heard of him???
brhunter8
Micheal Shankner is his idol. . . .
Don't you wish lamestream radio gave guys like him more airtime. Is it possible that the masses truely can't identify true talent and run from it...right into the arms of... what's that dufus' name...uh... t h e one that Britney Spears dated...good thing I can't think of his name...haha

Nice wig, or whatever that is on his head.
Just kidding.
I met Michael Angelo Batio at the winter NAMM show in Anaheim, CA. He's a very cool guy. He let me put on the double neck guitar when i got my picture made with him.
i saw him live it was awesome he is one of the best guitarist ever and one of the most inspiering people ihave ever met
thank you Mr. Batio my hat is off to you
Really good
I'd like to visit the planet he's from...
Great guitarist. Great guy. 'Nuff said.

Pretty solid track in "Rain Forest"
He originally came up with a Chicago band called Holland (Led by Tom Holland), an 80's melodic rock group. They had a great album "Little Monsters" that had some awesome tunes on it. Apparently Batio wanted to be a shredder though, and him leaving basically spelled the end for Holland. In any event, I saw him in concert with Holland in Chicago, and his technique was amazing. He was much better in a group with Holland than as a solo shredder, IMO.
Pretty solid track in "Rain Forest"

I saw Nitro on the two tours they did. Great shows and really nice guys. Michael Angelo said that the quad guitar you're referring to was stolen shortly after the video shoot.
andyczech
I am surprised as well, this is very good, although bit on a soft side and
one-colored. Sounds little too electronic to me, what I am missing on most these otherwise very good and technicaly sound musicians is dynamics that Jeff Beck or Steve Stevens offer (Porcupine Tree as a band excell in dynamics of music as well). After while, everything starts sounding kinda monotone, you know? I agree that Yngwie is better with the wild side of him but doesn't he tire you with same album after albumafte
whoa dude! good stuff. RC, I may agree that Yngwie may be better, but he is also marketed. I'm impress w/this guy, will definitely add to my fave's list. I don't know where Pandora gets their comparative list, but Joe Satch is similar, as is Micheal Schenker.
check out you tube for "freight train" by nitro he uses a quad guitar and i've seen him play in in concert just as he does in the video. you'll be amazed
he used to play in an 80's and called nitro . OFR was the title of their first cd. fantastic guitar and crazy volcals.
rchavez108
yngwie malmsteen is better

vikas942
His use of the double dean guitar is amazing (seeing he made it)
Good stuff... not your average boring "shredder". Actually got some melody in there. Thought it was Blues Saraceno before I looked.
Yes, very cool! Surprised Similar Artists list doesn't list Yngwie Malmsteen or Tony MacAlpine. I thought he was Tony before I looked to see who it was.
Michael Angelo is the best guitarist in the world!
Michael Angelo was the guitarist of the Glam band "Nitro". He actually had a four neck guitar (shaped like an axe). Look for the video "Freight Train" to see him play all four necks! The lead singer of Nitro was Jim Gillette (Married to Lita Ford) - he has the most range in a non-opera trained singer I have ever heard... think Mariah Carey's range in a Glam / Metal Singer (Jim's hair is probably longer than Mariah's)!
oooh. This one popped up on my Joe Satriani station. Very good. Had not heard of him before--I like it.
mr. batio shreds. you know you're the best when you can play a double guitar, and play it very well. he rocks.
