Born by the meeting between drummer Douglas D'Este (Moofloni), guitar-player Francesco Bozzato and keyboardist Bruno Zocca (Aldo Tagliapietra, Criminal Tango), Pacino felt since from the beginning the need of exploring new territories for finding a personal and distinctive sound, opting for the use of synth-bass lines instead than the classic bass guitar.
The line-up was soon completed with the adding of singer Mattia Briggi (X-Ray Life). The band entered Fox Studio in 2017 to start the recording of their first studio album, which was mixed and mastered one year after by Oscar Burato in his Atomic Stuff Studio. In 2018 Pacino signed a deal with Sneakout Records for the worldwide release of their debut album "Fallen America", which is scheduled for June 1, 2018. The first single, "Out Of The Cage", is launched in May with an official videoclip, directed by independent video maker Leonardo Amati.
“Fallen America” is full of deepest atmospheres, besides being a very original album in its genre, a decidedly minimal alternative rock, in just eight tracks, the group manages to propose a truly brilliant work.
A sort of personal journey, intrinsic in the proposed music, “Fallen America” is definitely a very nice record and a good proposal in the Italian musical circuit.
I can recommend the purchase of this album in which stand out the fabulous and gloomy “Lately”, "Desert Trip" which the band touches blues music in a modern way, another highlight is “Out The Cage”, surprising as fascinating piece.
Pacino made an interesting, personal and modern alternative rock album.
