Memories Lab biography
MEMORIES LAB are from Messina, Italy formed by Claudio La Rosa (drums) and Giovanni Girone (vocals) with the idea of forming a progressive metal band in the style of PAIN OF SALVATION, OPETH, and SPOCK'S BEARD but also incorporating the form of the Italian progressive scene of the '70s. The band completed their line-up with Giuseppe Ruggeri (bass), Frank Martino (guitar) and Antonello Bruto (keyboards, synthesizer). The band began writing compositions and self produced a three track demo "Crossing the Soul Gate" in 2002. The band played live in Sicily and headlined the Iron Fest '03.

In 2004, they released their second EP "The Treasure." Martino and Bruto leave the band after a few live performances.

In 2006, Gianluca "Filtro" Rizzo (guitar) joins the band and they record a five track EP "Empathy."

In 2007, Francesco "Terence" Forestiere (keyboards, synthesizers) joined the band and they start working on their first full length concept album "Stronger Than Hate" which was recorded and mixed at Imago Sound Studios and mastered at Fascination Street Studio by Jens Bogren (OPETH, PAIN OF SALVATION, PARADISE LOST, SYMPHONY X to name a few). The debut album was released in January of 2009.

Review by mel from hell

4 stars I have never heard before of Memories lab,as this is their first sample of songwritting. But, I was amazed by the quality of this band. They create emotional and complex music which is escorted by adequate vocals. Even if the singer does not have the perfect pronounciation(he is an Italian), he is not at all annoying like other progressive singers of his country. It is a fact that I have heard this album only once till now but it left me with a big smile. I also like the brutal vocals(not so brutal,but OK)that they included in their music. I haven't rtead yet the lyrics, but it is a concept as far as I know. From what I have heard, the story seems very interesting. Another positive is that they are not another clone of Dream Theater like many other bands are. If they evolve their style, they will create a solid musical personality that may make them distinguish from the mass in the future. Excellent first effort, I am waiting for their next attemp. I like also their name, it reminds me the movie "the eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" with Jim Carrey.
