My new album “Insignia” is out.
It is available on iTunes, Google Music and many other online stores.
Dimitar puts together another great collection of music. Insignia has lots of variety. Instrumental music with a dash of Bulgarian flare. Very Nice!
This release couldn’t be possible if a very close friends Uwe and Janine and my wife Vania wasn’t gave me theirs best support in the last few months. I’ve sold all my gear.
The Ibanez RG320 guitar I’ve got as a present for my birthday on 30.11 . 2015 from Uwe and Janine, was a turning point in my life. I was going to give up on the music.
These songs are compilation from my unreleased tracks – ideas sitting in my backup DVD’s. I have had to re record some of the main guitars. It was mixed in the winter of 2015-16.
I hope you will like them and I’m sure you will
They’re coming again from my hearth.
Also, I want to thank you for the great inspiration, the emails, messages and the great support over the years!!!
Please spread the word and share the links!
“If you don’t know much about Bulgaria, you’ll probably find the music enchantingly exotic. Moreover, Bulgarian folklore’s typical irregular beats/rhythms match perfectly the guitar-oriented rock which Nalbantov uses as a starting point, giving it a more progressive aspect ”
“This is a must hear for every passionate hills wanderer along the very richest on stories and ancient history Bulgarian forests (and those who are curious to hear their sounds through a very talented majestic composer and guitar player)! Now the Bulgarian forest sings in rock texture.”
“The songs are a collection of ideas inspired by traveling the beautiful Rhodopa Mountains. Then recorded and arranged by me in my studio over the past few months. The compositions are mixed with many folklore elements. I believe music is my tool for inspiring others to lift themselves up”
The first review of the new album:
The Official Music Video “Loong”
Sing to the Mountain – 2012
” I had never heard of Dimitar before stumbling across his name/music on YouTube. I decided to buy this album and was rewarded greatly. If you enjoy instrumental guitar then this is a must have! At times he reminds of Steve Vai, but his songwriting is different (more European in sound). The songwriting is brilliant, with tons of melody and flair. I would recommend this to any fans of Vai, Satriani, etc. It is the best album I’ve heard, of it’s kind, in years. “
No reviews yet? That’s hard to believe. This is a really good instrumental guitar album. Very melodic in nature. Dimitar’s songwriting is strong and he is not just a shredder. At times he sounds very similar to Steve Vai, but he still has his own style. Recommended!

What an amazing display of guitar playing technique. This 4th recording surpasses all the rest. Every tune is excellent. Sound quality for an independent artist who plays all the instruments is outstanding. If you like the shred genre, Dimitar is now at the top of the class. No one else even comes close. Tapping, pull-offs, sweep picking

Incredible guitar playing … as always.
This new CD confirms that Dimitar Nalbantov find Himself in the Premier League when it comes to technical guitar playing, and composing music. The sound is also very good!
Mother Earth – 2008
“One of my favorite guitarist anywhere. His abilities are on par with those of Joe Satriani & Steve Vai, both in playing/tone and production. There are only a handful of albums that provide nothing but quality tracks… this is one of them. I also love that I could burn his tracks to CD with no hassles! “

Universe – 2006
According to the information on his official website, Dimitar Nalbantov is from Eastern European. This is obviously my first time to check out Dimitar Nalbantov’s music. But his guitar-oriented instrumental music on his cd called ‘Universe‘ is quite fun to hear entirely. Stylistically, the music of some songs like “Purely And Simply” and “Hyper Sonic” has similar vibes of what Joe Satriani and Steve Vai are good at. After having listened to this cd carefully, the tunes like “Universe“, “The Wide“, and “Shade” have somewhat progressive feeling and nice fusion elements that I get into. Dimitar Nalbantov handles guitars, basses, keyboards, percussion, drums, and virtually everthing, except for drums handled by John Wooten on ‘Orpheus‘ and ‘Unknown Town‘ that also sound very interesting to my ears. The cd of Universe has friendly atmospheres to every instrumental music lover, and showcases technical and intricate guitar solos that appeal to rock guitar freaks. If you are looking for mind- bogglingly overwhelming instrumental music, then this might not be your favorite music. Nevertheless, Dimitar has carefully composed each track and put together cohesively to my ears. I think he is a quite talented guitarist who is able to balance between technical chops and friendly instrumentations on this cd. The sound production is also very nice and solid, even though this cd is produced within his own independent budgets. Every time I listen to this cd carefully, I find a joy and happy moment from this cd. In particular, the arrangements and instrumental prowess displayed on the progressive fusion “Universe” and very unique guitar/keyboards featured “Shade” are very nice and superb. I wish he keeps up a good work with enthusiasm for next album. Dimitar, you have done good job on this CD.
This is my debut album “Universe” released in 2006.
