LP on 180g gold vinyl.

Rising Force is the first studio album by guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen, released on 5 March 1984 through Polydor Records. The album reached No. 14 on the Swedish albums chart, No. 60 on the US Billboard 200, and received a nomination for Best Rock Instrumental Performance at the 1986 Grammy Awards. It is regarded as a seminal release in the shred and neoclassical metal genres.

Steve Huey at AllMusic gave Rising Force four stars out of five, calling it ‘a revelation upon its release’ and ‘The true inauguration of the age of the guitar shredder’. He praised Malmsteen’s technique and ‘blinding virtuosity’, as well 
as highlighting ‘his obsessions with Bach, Beethoven,  and Paganini’.
