Hi to all,

I just recently discovered a new extremely talented musician that should be added to ProgArchives. His name is Alex Argento, he is a keyboardist/composer and he released his first solo album entitled "EGO". The cd contains ten instrumental tunes ranging from metal prog to fusion and jazz with a lot of other influences. The songs are outstandings, very well arranged and incredibly played.

Here you have all the detailed information of the album (I'm copying all the info from the original e-mail I received from Alex Argento himself):

Sounds pretty good.Two of the songs on the myspace page were pretty "fusion-y" but the other two sounded like prog metal to me.
 
I will add them to the Prog Metal Team's chart and see how it goes.
 
If you want to see our chart look at the thread of mine which is stickied in this section called "Prog Metal Suggestion? Look Here First".
