The second full-length studio album by Italian Progressive Metal/Shred guitarist.
Gianluca Ferro is a guitarist from exemplary curriculum, involved from years in collaborations with such artists, as Andrè Matos (Angra, Shaman), Kiko Loureiro (Angra), Rafael Bittencourt (Angra) and Scott McGill (Michael Manring, Vic Stevens). At the present, he’s a guitar teacher in a known musical academy.
Active since the late '90s in the Italian Prog-Metal scene, with bands such as Time Machine, Doomsword and Arkhè, Gianluca recorded many albums and performed intensively in Italy and abroad. He plays at the legendary Gods Of Metal in Milan, in different occasions, sharing the stage with bands, such as Iron Maiden, Slayer, Slipknot, Dark Tranquillity, Testament, Rammstein, Manowar, Symphony X, Running Wild and many others. At the same time, he collaborates with Kiko Loureiro (Megadeth, Angra) and Rafael Bittencourt at the album "Reviviscence" by Time Machine. While devoting himself to guitar teaching, toward the beginning of 2000 Gianluca starts working on his solo debut album, "Involution" released in 2005 and worldwide distributed by Century Media.
His solo career marks an artistic transition, blending his Jazz-Fusion skills with modern Metal influences and complex harmonic and rhythmic textures, exploring polyrhythms and polymeters in a pristine, original vision. In 2008, he released a guitar trio album with Strings 24, with whom plays at the Peralta Auditorioum in Spain, together with Patrick Rondat and, with the same line-up, he performs at the Guitar Day 4 in Milan together with Paul Gilbert, Mattias Eklundh.
In February 2010, Gianluca takes part in OSV Project 3, a guitar-oriented instrumental album, featuring guitarists Achilleas Diamantis, Borge Olzen, Marcel Coenen, Jonas Tamas and Phy Yaan-Zek, which arouses the interest of the famous producer Mark Varney.
The 15 tracks of his second solo-album recorded with the collaboration of famous musicians.
People, who enjoy acts like Liquid Tension Experiment, Steve Vai, Scale The Summit, and other instrumental Progressive Metal acts, should enjoy Gianluca Ferro's solo efforts!
