Great Master biography

The band was built up in 1993 by the solo guitarist Jahn Carlini and in a short time they attract the attention of the metal- audience for their epic metal that recalls the style of Manilla Road and Heavy Load.

The sound of Great Master is very epic but in the same time hard, with simple melodies but also with powerful chords-rides.

The band is made up with 5 “pieces” Max Bastasi (vocals), Jahn Carlini (guitar), Edoardo Pezzile (guitar), Enrico Pezzile (bass guitar),and Paolo Pasqualini (drums).

On Dec 1993 they record their first promo tape with 4 tracks that pave the road to the second one GREAT MASTER in 1994.


The songs receive a good criticism not only by the audience but also by many music magazines (Metal Shock ,Flash, Metal Hammer....and other magazines).
