When the multi-instrumentalist/songwriter/producer Daniele Liverani (the Genius rock opera, etc) wanted to try something new he formed the band Twinspirits. Liverani sticks to only playing keyboards in the band, and it’s worth mentioning that guitarist Tommy Ermolli is only 19 years old. Liverani held several auditions in order to find the perfect singer and decided on Soren “Nico” Adamsen from Denmark.
When it comes to the music of Twinspirits, with Liverani behind it you can only imagine progressive metal with lots of technical parts and difficult turns within the music. The instrumental parts are a bit shorter than usual, which is nice, and as always it takes a while to get into the album because of the technicality of the music. Adamsen’s voice fits perfectly into the production and guitarist Ermolli blazes off a few really edgy riffs.
Liverani wrote all of the 9 tracks on his own and he managed to write material that really captures the listener and makes the 70 minutes fly away. This album gives you plenty of hours of great listening and it’s hard to pick out any favorite song because Liverani has really delivered a solid album in every way. Liverani also produced the album and it sounds really complex; every member is allowed to show off their skills. Liverani is one of those producers that know exactly what to do to bring out the perfect sound.
This album is a fun experience and it’s an example of how great progressive metal should be executed. All fans of Liverani’s previous works are gonna love Twinspirits. He’s currently working on the next Twinspirits album and the band is heading out on the road really soon.
