Francesco “Frullo” Larosa adds:
“I’m happy to share with you all the playthrough video for the first single taken from the album ‘Headbanging Forever’. I’ve recorded the video with Gaston Studio’s guys and Daniele Farina. Paolo Toso took care of the wonderful lights and Gabriele Ravaglia from Fear Studio captured the sound. The song ‘For the Love and the Lost’ is a thrash ride at 200bpm. I had a lot of fun adding a lot of double bass parts, linear phrases and some special meter changes during the guitars solo. On this playthrough video, I’ve put also the scores I’m playing. I had this idea of watching a lot of online lessons using the same method. I never saw that on a playthrough video before, so I think it’s very cool for all drummers that want to try playing the song. Enjoy!”.
“Headbanging Forever” features 10 crushing tracks produced by EXTREMA guitarist Tommy Massara & Gabriele Ravaglia. The album was recorded and mixed by Gabriele Ravaglia & Maxx Canali at the Fear Studio in Italy plus mastered by Alberto Cutolo at Massive Arts studios in Milan. For this album, the band enlisted Gustavo Sazes (MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY, ANGRA, ICED EARTH, GUS G., AMARANTHE, a.o.) to create the album artwork.
Tommy Massara comments:
“It’s a 100% Metal Album that leaves the listeners breathless. The songs are well balanced, there’s a lot of double bass, tempo changes and screaming lead guitar solos like in the old days. The songwriting of the album reminds me of something classic with modern production.”
