FROM PIEMONTE...

Avocado Moon Experiment is a project from Turin started in 2016 with the aim of composing a sci-fi rock opera blending progressive rock and metal. The project took a more definite form in 2020 and on the 30th of December of the same year the band digitally self-released a promising debut album entitled Darrell's Journal 2116 with a line up featuring composer and multi-instrumentalist Giuseppe Floridia (guitar, keyboards, bass, vocals) along with Marco Benigno (vocals), Giulia Valerin (vocals), Luca Ragusa (guitar, bass) and Luca Zanon (drums) plus the guests Jacopo Albini (clarinet), Madalina Smocov (flute), Maria Beatrice Venanzi (violin) and Giuseppe Vizzini (flute). The album was recorded and mixed by Giuseppe Floridia in his Floryd Sounds Studio and collects the first five chapters of what is meant as a work in progress telling a long story set in a dystopic future...

Hi,

Kinda strange for me ... as I was listening to all the bands listed here on Page 43, I kept thinking that some of the stuff that is sent to PA to get added and get some folks opinions, does not come close to the musicianship that all of these bands showed ... and guess what ... a band ... not one person!

Some really neat stuff and of all the titles presented only one did not get my attention and I thought it was way too conventional and Americanized for my tastes.

Nice stuff ... really nice stuff, and it is a pleasure to see some really nifty musicianship!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... favoritism is not an artistic merit! www.pedrosena.com

FROM LAZIO...

Il Bacio di Giuda came to life in Rome in 2000 on the initiative of Marco Tesoriero (vocals) and Paolo Vigliarolo (guitar), then joined by Marco Berni (keyboards). Later the line up was completed by Orazio Fabbri (bass) and Fabio Migliori (drums) and in 2005 the band self-released an interesting eponymous demo EP and made it available in free download from their official website. The sources of inspiration range from Italian prog masters of the seventies such as Premiata Forneria Marconi, Banco del Mutuo Soccorso or Area to canzone díautore and more recent acts and in my opinion itís a real pity that the band did not last long and called it a day in 2007...

Where are they now? Well, Paolo Vigliarolo, Marco Berni and Orazio Fabbri joined, one after each other, Giancarlo Erra and his project NoSound (Official Website) but Marco Berni is also involved in another interesting prog project called Prototype Lab (Official Website). Fabio Migliori is currently the drummer of a Heavy Metal band called Enemynside (Official Website) while Marco Tesoriero (Facebook), after a long hiatus, has recently self-released two albums in a singer-songwriter style, Questaterra! (2020) and Funamboli astrali (2021).
