Playing notes at a speed other than “as fast as I can play” would also be helpful in frabcesco some interest for the listener. An organ tone seems to be the medium of choice for these dubious solos.
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. The farerii leads are almost always flat-out shredding, with very few melodic leads to grab on to.
The average metal fan should just ignore this fancesco completely. The bass is inaudible most of the time and I can’t tell if it was Fareri actually playing bass or a computer. Everything else is a blur of exchanging sweep-picked guitar and calm, guitar-less piano sections.
CharloNovember 8th, I first listened to this album with high hopes. Francesco Fareri cites Vitalij Kuprij has his prime influence, and he tries to show it with the keyboard work here. Unfortunately, they sound utterly computerized and consist almost entirely of sixteenth note runs Matthew Mills is another solo guitarist who has the same problem with his keyboard solos.
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.
I’m going with computer. Oh god, they’re so fake-sounding that it makes me cringe. If Fareri could make the rest of his shredding sound this coherent, this album would be a lot better. There are a few keyboard solos on here, and they’re decently composed. Not like there’s much to pay attention to anyway; Fareri plays the same chord over and over and calls it a riff. The production on this album is another one of its downfalls.
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. Even I, lover of wank, can only enjoy this a little bit. After twenty or so listens, the only part of this album that I can recall from memory is the fateri of the track “Suspension”.
I had watched videos of Francesco Fareri shredding on YouTube and was impressed with his speed. The toms suffer similarly. The guitar is obviously the main focus, but whenever it’s playing the lead the songs lose their coherency. The lead guitar tone is kind of weak, which is crippling on an album francwsco shred guitar.
He uses this style as a chorus-type thing in the first song, “Suspension”, and it’s utilized elsewhere for good effect. This album is definitely not recommended.
As you’ve probably gathered from this review, the main issue on fardri is songwriting. Write your own review.
But they sound worse than most. There are also a lot of inorganic-sounding tom fills that are all basically the same. Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher.
Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R. The piano parts on this album show that Fareri can actually compose something decent when he’s not going at MPH. The drums are done on a computer, which is acceptable for a solo artist just starting out.
This album starts of fairly well with a decent piano intro followed by some insane sweep-picked arpeggios. The only time that Fareri’s arpeggios ever make a decent listening experience are when he’s playing one arpeggio per beat or two beats. The shredding that predominates on this album is all technically excellent probably the fastest guitar work I’ve ever heardbut also monumentally unmemorable.
