The use of piano is actually the most successful thing on this disc; it sounds reasonably fracesco an actual piano and Fareri never tries to solo with it.
Playing notes at a speed other than “as fast as I can play” would also be helpful frahcesco sparking some interest for the listener.
CharloNovember 8th, This is the main issue for most of the album. The guitar leads are almost always flat-out shredding, with very few melodic leads to grab on to. Everything else is a blur of exchanging sweep-picked guitar and calm, guitar-less piano sections.
Francesco Fareri – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
This album starts of fairly well with a decent piano intro followed by some insane sweep-picked arpeggios. The toms suffer similarly.
The fact that this guy is trying to be “progressive” also hurts; playing ridiculously fast arpeggios in a normal time signature is bland enough, but playing them in odd patterns renders them completely unmemorable. The piano parts on this album show that Fareri can actually compose something decent when he’s farerl going at MPH.
The bass drum is too trebly and sounds completely sterile. Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. Write your own review. The shredding that predominates on this album is all technically excellent probably the fastest guitar work I’ve ever heardbut also monumentally unmemorable.

The only time that Fareri’s arpeggios ever make a decent listening experience are when he’s playing one francsco per beat or two beats. The fsreri are done on a computer, which is acceptable for a solo artist just starting out.
An organ tone seems to be the medium of choice for these dubious solos. The bass is inaudible most of the time and I can’t tell if it was Fareri actually playing bass or a computer. Even I, lover of wank, can only enjoy this a little bit. Fgancesco least he tried, right?
As you’ve probably gathered from this review, the main issue on here is songwriting. 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 dareri sixteenth note runs Matthew Mills is another solo guitarist who has the same problem with his keyboard solos. He uses this style as a chorus-type thing in the first song, “Suspension”, and it’s utilized elsewhere for good effect.
There are also a lot of inorganic-sounding tom fills that francescoo all basically the same. This album is definitely not recommended.
I first listened to this album with high hopes. I had watched videos of Francesco Fareri shredding on YouTube and was impressed with his speed.
Not like there’s much to pay attention to anyway; Fareri plays the same chord over and over and calls it a riff. There are a few keyboard solos frajcesco here, and they’re decently composed. If Fareri could make the rrancesco of his shredding sound this coherent, this album would be a lot better.
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 frabcesco then. After twenty or so listens, the only part of this album that I can recall from memory is the beginning of the track “Suspension”.
But after listening to more than just small sections of his work, I realized that speed is really the only thing on offer here. The guitar is obviously the main focus, but whenever it’s playing the lead the songs lose their coherency.
