Alberto Rigoni‘s new album Three Wise Monkeys [also feat. ex Dream Theater member Kevin Moore, Goran Edman and many others] is now available for free full streaming at Alberto‘s bandcamp page.
The title track Three Wise Monkeys is now available for free download via Soundcloud. The hard rock tune features Göran Edman [ex Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum, Brazen Abbot] on vocals, Tommy Ermolli [TwinSpirits, Khymera] on guitars, Alessandro Bertoni [Aphelion] on keyboards and the young talented drummer Paco Barillà.
Three Wise Monkeys was released on October 1, 2012 by Any And All Records with worldwide distribution [Nightmare Records, Disk Union, Power Prog, MediaStar, BTF.it etc.].
Half instrumental and half with vocals, Rigoni’s third solo album is thematically centered around the Japanese folk legend of the Three Wise Monkeys and further refines the stylistic contrasts and progressive spirit characterizing 2011’s Rebirth [Nightmare Records], concretely separating the mellow jazz, rock fusion, and ambient from the assertive melodic and hard rock and developing each extreme into Rigoni’s most aggressive and most delicate material. His distinctively kaleidoscopic bass playing and compositional grace smoothly passes across borders and carries traits of each of its components, becoming less of a solo project based around the bass guitar than a progressive rock experience.
The album also boasts contributions from great special guests: Göran Edman [ex Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum, Brazen Abbot], Jonas Erixon [Alicate], Kevin Moore [ex Dream Theater, OSI, Chroma Key], Mark Cross [Outloud, ex Helloween, Firewind], Federico Solazzo [Alexia], Alessandro Bertoni [Aphelion], Mistheria [Bruce Dickinson, Rob Rock], Tommy Ermolli [TwinSpirits], Simone Mularoni DGM, Empyrios], Paolo Valli [session drummer], Paco Barillà [Daniele Liverani], Sebastian Persini [Solo artist, session drummer].
