Ryo Okumoto (Spock’s Beard, Phil Collins), one of the songs from his brand new album “Duality” which is released on September 20th. On this track Alberto uses the Ibanez Ashula II, hybrid Fretless/Fretted bass which give an unique sound to the song.
The album features a guest appearances of Mattias IA Eklundh, Jonah Weingarten, Mistheria, Frank Caruso & Ryo Okumoto.
The artwork (below) has been designed by well known visual artist Reuben Bhattacharya of Visual Amnesia who has worked with several famous artists.
Reuben says: “I wanted to bring forth, a modernized approach to the stylings of classic prog rock album art on this release. The painting and the characters depict the theme of the album, which is the synergy and coexistence between Technology and Nature, Machine and Man, Good and Evil, Light and Dark, Dissonance and Harmony and the opposing forces that define human existence on planet Earth!”
