Italian progressive metal veteran Alfonso Corace (AIRLINES OF TERROR, ex LUNARSEA,VIDHARR)releases his new solo album “Fo’s Room” today.
Yesterday, on the eve of the official release, the following media partners hosted an advance stream of the album:
The project was conceived as a vehicle for realizing ideas that exist in a separate space from his other/previous bands. Recorded in Rome, “Fo’s Room” is a look at searching for strength and inspiration in an enervating world.
The music isn’t wedded to genre and explores atmospheric metal, rock and electronic music flavours which owe as much to Paradise Lost and Ghost as to Air and Daft Punk. The arrangements are direct but take time to weave in progressive elements and dynamic atmosphere.
Some songs see the multi-instrumentalist collaborate with longtime friends Giuseppe Orlando (INNO, THE FORESHADOWING, AIRLINES OF TERROR, ex NOVEMBRE) and Elisabetta Marchetti (INNO) introducing surprising new elements into the music without sacrificing its intense intimacy.
