The toms suffer similarly. The shredding fardri predominates on this album is all technically excellent probably the fastest guitar work I’ve ever heardbut also monumentally unmemorable.

There are also a lot of inorganic-sounding tom fills that are all basically the same.

Francesco Fareri

I had watched videos of Francesco Fareri shredding on YouTube and was impressed with his speed. Even I, lover of wank, can only enjoy this a little bit.

Frrancesco album starts of fairly well with a decent piano intro followed by some insane sweep-picked arpeggios. The bass is inaudible most of the time and I can’t tell if it was Fareri actually playing bass or a computer.

At least he tried, right? Bands alphabetical country genre Labels alphabetical country Reviews R. Francesco Fareri cites Vitalij Kuprij has his prime influence, ffareri he tries to show it with the keyboard work here. The most obvious way this is abused is the ludicrous amount of orchestra hits he throws in during transitional parts of the songs.


Fareri manages to take the computerized drums a bit farther farerl most artists who take that route; there are fills and variations where most artists would just keep pounding away on those double bass drums.

But they sound worse than most. I’m going with computer. There are a few keyboard solos on here, and they’re decently composed.

The average metal fan should just ignore this release completely. This is the main issue for most of the album. The piano parts on this album show that Fareri can actually compose something decent when he’s not going at MPH. Unfortunately, they sound utterly computerized and consist almost entirely of franesco note runs Matthew Mills is another solo guitarist who has the same problem with his keyboard solos.

An organ tone seems to be the medium of choice for these dubious solos. If Fareri could make the rest of his shredding sound this coherent, this album would be a lot better.

The only time that Fareri’s arpeggios ever make a decent listening experience are when he’s playing one arpeggio per beat or two beats.

Everything else is a blur of exchanging sweep-picked guitar and calm, guitar-less piano sections. But after listening to more than just small sections of his work, I realized that speed is really the only thing on offer here.

But the sense of melody that the song had during the intro is lost when Fareri decides to keep shredding. The use of piano is actually the most successful thing on this disc; it sounds reasonably like an actual piano and Fareri never tries to solo with it. Write your own review. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t be until the next album that he would actually get Kuprij to play on his albums, so Fareri again resorted to a computer.


The guitar leads are almost always flat-out shredding, with very few melodic leads to grab on to. He uses this style as a chorus-type thing in the first song, “Suspension”, and it’s utilized elsewhere for good effect.

CharloNovember 8th, The guitar is obviously the main focus, but whenever it’s playing the lead the songs lose their coherency. After twenty or so listens, the only part of this album that I can recall from memory is the beginning of the track “Suspension”.

The lead guitar tone is kind of weak, which is crippling on an album of shred guitar. The production on this album is another one of its downfalls.

The drums are done on a computer, which is acceptable for a solo artist just starting out. I am usually a huge fan of mindless guitar wank but this is too much.
