It was 2014 when the Swiss singer Fabrizio Sassi, animated by his deep passion for the great poet Francesco Petrarca, decided to found a very interesting project to bring immortal verses to music.
Fortunately, the sacred fire of metal flows in Fabrizio’s veins and fortunately for us he always surrounds himself with the top of the musicians and singers in Italy.
Thus was born Verde Lauro, a supergroup formed by Pier Gonella (Necrodeath, ex Labyrinth) and Francesco Marras (Screaming Shadow) on guitars, by drummer Mattia Stancioiu (Crown of Autumn – ex Vision Divine) and keyboardist Mauro Desideri (VeraEuridice).
While on the voice, besides obviously Fabrizio, we find Roberto Tiranti (Labyrinth), Davide Dell ’Orto (Drakkar), Alessandro Del Vecchio (Edge of Forever) and Emanuele Rastelli (Magnifiqat).
In this way born the first CD ‘Son animali al mondo’ a symphonic power speed metal album that makes the happiness of the people who have had the opportunity to listen to it. Yes, despite the countless appearances and the beauty of the disc (recorded by Fabrizio and Mattia Stancioiu at the Elnor Studio) the CD is printed in a few copies distributed to musicians and a small circle of fans.
We at Elevate have decided to re-propose it (or perhaps it would be better to say propose it) and therefore we have signed a contract with Verde Lauro which will translate into an immediate future in the digital release on all platforms of ‘Son animali al mondo’ and to follow , in the coming months, of the second chapter ‘6 April’ (also with many other guests).
In addition to digital, the physical will surely arrive on CD and who knows what else …
We are also working on Fabrizio to bring him back to the studio…. And we will keep you updated on this.
