LIFESTREAM “Diary” (LIZARD CD 0140)
Per uno dei brani, “Sound of the Earth”, è stato realizzato un video dal fotografo Matti Bicchi:
Il disco si conclude con una citazione di “E mi viene da pensare” del Banco del mutuo soccorso, brano scelto sia per la sua natura introspettiva sia per omaggiare Francesco Di Giacomo e Rodolfo Maltese venuti a mancare durante la stesura e registrazione del disco.
Alberto Vuolato: chitarre
Andrea Franceschini: tastiere
Andrea Cornuti: basso
Paolo Tempesti: batteria e voce
“An enthusiastic welcome to the LIFESTREAM debut, with a brilliant AOR progressive rock, able to combine technique and melody, sustained by sinuous vocal lines. Respectful of the past the Lifestream look at the new prog scene with the proud look” (Gianni Della Cioppa – Classix)
Debut studio album by the tuscan band Lifestream, active since 2006. All songs are written, performed, produced and recorded by Lifestream, published by Lizard Records.
This album transports the listener inside the lives of different characters like a wind flipping through the pages of a book. The tracks present musical recalls suggesting a common thread, despite being apparently disconnected from one another.
The sound is that of typical progressive rock (synthesizers, odd time signatures, long sectioned suites) with AOR and hard rock influences, for a total of 8 tracks (included the emotional 15 minutes suite of “Over the rippling waters”) and more than one hour of music.
A videoclip for the song “Sound of the Earth” has been released, featuring nature-themed timelapses by the photographer Mattia Bicchi.
The record closes with an excerpt from “E mi viene da pensare” originally recorded by the Italian prog band Banco del Mutuo Soccorso. This song has been chosen both for its introspective nature and for tribute to Francesco di Giacomo and Rodolfo Maltese that passed away during the recording sessions.
