Italian progressive metal veteran Alfonso Corace is now releasing the third new single of his upcoming solo record. The track "Control" is streaming:
"Control" features vocals by Giuseppe Orlando, renowned drummer of The Foreshadowing, Inno and Airlines Of
Terror, and former drummer of Novembre.
"Fo's Room", the brooding debut album by Rome-based multi-instrumentalist Alfonso Corace (AIRLINES OF TERROR, ex LUNARSEA, VIDHARR) is set to be released on September 18th, 2020.
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.
