Existentia (2106)Hypersonic, a symphonic power metal band, hailing from the beautiful city of Belpasso, Catania, situated on Sicily’s east coast, are out with their second full length album, Existensia, recorded and released by Revalve Records on May,2016. Formed almost a decade ago, this band is the brainchild of Salvo Grasso and Emanuele Gangemi. The band in its initial years saw quite a few line-up changes, things started shaping up when back in 2008 Alessia Rapisarda decided to join in on the vocals.

The band released its first Eponymous Inspiration in transpiration, which was received well by the listeners and received positive feedback by the metal community. The band recorded and released their first album”Fallen melodies” in 2009 at TRP Music studio, following which they released their first single “Rebirth”. The band toured and played in a lot of European and Italian festivals during this period.

Existentia, is the band’s first concept album, which is based on the existence of man and the spiritual affairs afterlife. The album opens up with “The first sounds of Life”, which sets an amazing backdrop and feels like a movie score. It takes its time to build up and while doing so we realise that we have been introduced to something epic. The warm and fuzzy guitars blend well with the piano, and Alessia Rapisarda brings in an amazing flavour to the band’s sound. Her melodic and deep vocals go really well and sets an amazing ambient sound in your living room. The short and sweet guitar solo towards the end is to be cherished. Continue reading »
