Steve Bello defines his genre as “Instrumental Progmetalfunk.” It is a spot-on description.

He teamed with Chris Davison and Ronnie Mormino of The Inversion Circus to produce his 7th studio album. “Marblehead” was released on 5/15 and is jam-packed with instrumental gems. If you’re a fan of the kind of albums Joe Satriani puts out, “Marblehead,” is definitely the disc for you!
