This album starts of fairly well with a decent piano intro followed by some insane sweep-picked arpeggios. There are actually riffs on this album, but they’re so far in the background that you will not notice them unless you’re paying attention to them specifically.
Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. The guitar leads are almost always flat-out shredding, with very few melodic leads to grab on to.
An organ tone seems to be the medium of choice for these dubious solos. Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R.
The fact that this guy is trying to be frsncesco also hurts; playing ridiculously fast arpeggios in a normal time signature is bland enough, but playing them in odd patterns renders them completely unmemorable.
There are also a lot of inorganic-sounding tom fills that are all basically the same. The average metal fan should just ignore this release completely. There are fsreri few keyboard solos on here, and they’re decently composed. Fareri manages to take the computerized drums a bit farther than most artists who take that route; there are fills and variations where most artists would just keep pounding away on those double bass drums. CharloNovember 8th, The most obvious way this is abused is the ludicrous amount of orchestra hits he throws in during transitional parts of the songs.
The bass is inaudible most of the time and I can’t tell if it was Fareri actually playing bass or a computer. Framcesco after listening to more than just small sections of his work, I realized that speed is really the only thing on offer here. When he’s being progressive he plays the same riff in a start-stop way to emphasize the fact that he’s basically ignoring the time signature.
He uses this style as a chorus-type thing in the first song, “Suspension”, and it’s utilized elsewhere for good effect. I am usually a huge fan of mindless guitar wank but this is too much. Write your own review.
The shredding that predominates on this album is all technically excellent probably the fastest guitar work I’ve ever heardbut also monumentally unmemorable. The lead guitar tone is kind of weak, which is crippling on an francewco of shred guitar. The production on this album is another one of its downfalls. Everything else is a blur of exchanging sweep-picked guitar and calm, guitar-less piano sections.

The use of piano is actually the most successful thing on this disc; it sounds reasonably like an actual piano and Fareri never tries to solo with it. As you’ve probably gathered from this review, the main issue on here is songwriting. The guitar is obviously the main focus, but whenever it’s playing the lead the songs lose their coherency.
At least he tried, right? Even I, lover of wank, can only enjoy this a little bit. The piano parts on this album show that Fareri can actually compose something decent when he’s not going at MPH.
This is exactly what a solo guitar album afreri be; a forty-minute masturbation session with the only memorable thing being the headache you’ve got afterwards.
But the sense of melody that the song had during the farrei is lost when Fareri decides to keep shredding. The bass drum is too trebly and sounds completely sterile. But they sound worse than most.
I had watched videos of Francesco Fareri shredding on YouTube and frqncesco impressed with his speed. The drums are done on a computer, which is acceptable for a solo artist just starting out. Francesco Fareri cites Vitalij Kuprij has his prime influence, and he tries to show it with the keyboard work here.
The few intricate bass parts I could pick out are too accurately played, which can’t be said for the guitar, which has slipups now and then.
