BURRN!! Magazine has called him The Fastest Guitarist in the World. Magazines such as Kerrang!, Metal Forces, and Aardshok hail his RCA release "Intense Defense" as the best AOR hard rock album ever. His albums are graced by a who's who of some of the finest musicians in the world including Jeff Fenholt (Jesus Christ in the original Broadway cast of "Jesus Christ Superstar"), Rob Rock (Impelliteri), Ken Tamplin (Shout) ,Alex Ligertwood (Santana), Rick Baker (Santana), Jason Scheff (Chicago), Mugs Cain (Sammy Hagar), Jizzy Pearl (Ratt). He has shared the stage with the likes of Dokken, Pat Travers, Michael Schenker, Ozzy Osbourne, Great White, Ratt, and countless other notable bands. A guitarist's guitarist, a true virtuoso, a world-class songwriter..............his name is Joshua Perahia.

Joshua Perahia has been a mainstay in the AOR/Melodic rock circles for over two decades. The band have released 6 albums, garnering gold album awards worlwide and having a #1 hit song in Japan. Many other popular recording artists started their careers as members of the group including Jeff Fenholt (ex-Black Sabbath), Kenny Tamplin (Shout/Magdellan). Members of Santana, Chicago have also appeared on the groups album. A new full lenth album will be released in late Summer 2001 produced by Keith Olsen.

Joshua' is the melodic hard rock band led by American guitarist Joshua Perahia and `Surrender' is their second album originally release in 1985. A good part of Hard rock/AOR journalists and enthusiast consider `Surrender' to be amongst the greatest albums the genre has ever produced-if not the greatest. There are a number of reasons for that claim and I have to say I very much share the same view.

First the songwriting throughout `Surrender' is outstanding to the point where is does not get any better. The whole album is built on melody and decimating AOR choruses: `Surrender love' is the ultimate melodic rock protest, `Your love is gone' carries more drama than the listener could handle while `heart full of soul' is so introspective and personal that convinces the listener upon first play. And there is of course `Hold On' a frenetic hard rocker that brings down any wall.

What separates `Surrender' from other highly acclaimed diamonds of the genre is that the album does not simply stand on stellar songwriting; it is complemented by equally unique performances. Joshua Perahia is probably the most melodic shredder ever- demonstrating speed, consistency and depth to match the respective skills of Chris Impellitteri and Zeno Roth. He shreds at full speed from the first track to the final making the overall result even more climactic.

Equally indispensable is the contribution of lead singer Jeff Fenholt who puts on a monumental performance that leaves no room for doubt, his technical ability and expressiveness is easily comparable to the skills of Rob Rock and Michael Flexig./Overall the guitarist and singer elevate an already amazing album to impossible artistic heights. The more you play `Surrender' the more you will come to appreciate its uniqueness. For any fan of AOR, melodic rock and melodic hard rock, `Surrender' is the ultimate buy.

This was a great melodic hard rock/metal album from 80's band Joshua- whose leader/guitarist, Joshua Perahia, was an outstanding shredder- as fast as anyone in metal- and also a good, solid songwriter. This is also the only album where you can hear former Jesus Christ Superstar broadway lead throat Jeff Fenholt singing heavy rock music- and he has an absolutely amazing voice- a huge range and incredible power. This was a classy production- the songs are anthemic, uplifting and catchy, the musicianship, vocals and production are all top notch. It is getting scarce these days so pick it up while you can- it would appeal to fans of classic 80's hard rock and AOR bands like Whitesnake, Journey, Kansas and Van Halen.
