Tara Lynch is a guitarist, composer, vocalist and songwriter and has studied music with such legends as Steve Vai, Chad Smith, Björn Englen, Tony MacAlpine, and Derek Sherinian. In 2015, Tara was asked to write and perform guitar solos on Beyond the Labyrinth's fourth album, "The Art of Resilience." At the same time, she began writing for her own debut album, "Evil Enough."
Eventually, when all the music and lyrics were written, Tara reached out to some friends to help her record the CD. Joining Tara are some folks you migh talso recognize: Vinny Appice on drums; Mark Boals on vocals; Bjorn Englen on bass; Tony MacAlpine on keyboards; Glen Sobel on drums, Phil soussan on bass and Brent Woods on synthesizers and background vocals.
So it should come as no surprise that "Evil Enough" is a kick-ass heavy metal record with amazing musicianship throughout, especially guitar (Tara isn't nicknamed "Gui-Tara for no reason). In fact, many of the songs on "Evil Enough" are so guitar-heavy that you find yourself wondering if they're instrumentals but, in most cases, a vocalist (oftimes Ms. Lynch hereself) kicks in.
There are two things that especially impress me on this CD: 1) Tara easily holds her own with the master musicians listed above and 2) She never lets herself grandstand. Every guitar part is exactly what the songs needs. There's no unnecessary flashy guitar work here.
Each of the songs is a solid rocker in the vein of Dio or Saxon or the like, with irresistible melodies and killer solos. There is the token "ballad" as such - the interestingly spelled "Kringeworthy," with its soulful guitars and slower-paced rhythm. My personal favorite track is "Gui-Tara Rises," a devastatingly heavy instrumental track that could be used as part of the soundtrack for an upcoming Godzilla movie.
"Evil Enough" works from beginning to end thanks to the level of musicianship involved, the quality of songwriting courtesy Tara Lynch, and the album's production which is solid throughout. And you know what? The awesome album cover art doesn't hurt either.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.

Tara Lynch is a guitarist, composer, vocalist and songwriter who delivers heavy metal thunder with prominent melodic guitar riffs, shredding leads and powerhouse vocals. Tara's full-length debut album, "EVIL ENOUGH," is due for release in early 2018.
At the age of eleven, Tara began teaching herself how to play her older brother's electric guitar on the sneak whenever he was out for the day. One day, he came home early and caught her in the act! Instead of getting angry for breaking his "don't touch this guitar" rule, he was so impressed with her skills, he gave it to her. And thus began Tara's love for guitar, her favorite and most accomplished of all instruments.
Primarily self-taught, Tara continued to play both electric and acoustic guitar and write songs well into her adulthood, picking up the bass guitar, drums and piano along the way. Very serious about her musicianship and the unending desire to improve, Tara has personally studied guitar with Steve Vai (Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake, Alcatrazz), drums with Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), bass with Björn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Soul Sign, Dio Disciples) and piano with Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, KISS, Alice Cooper, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Idol).
In 2015, Tara accepted the invitation from Geert Fieuw (founder of Belgian band Beyond the Labyrinth) to write and perform guitar solos on Beyond the Labyrinth's upcoming fourth album, "The Art of Resilience," scheduled for release in March 2017. At the same time, Tara began writing for her own upcoming debut album, EVIL ENOUGH.
EVIL ENOUGH is a melodic metal album full of rich guitar dominant tracks, all written by Tara Lynch. Joining Tara on this album is an all-star lineup of guest musicians including:
