Album Notes
Italian guitar blazer Francesco Fareri will release his second album on Lion Music on March 23rd 2007. Entitled “Secrets Within”. The new album contains 2 contrasting sides of Francesco’s musical vision and is quite different from Francesco’s previous release “Forbidden Dimension” (LMC147) in his playing, ideas and approach to music in general.

“Secrets Within” is divided into two movements, one heavy and one acoustic to better show all of Francesco’s ideas, feelings and the way he considers music. Francesco simply comments, “I believe this album to be the best material I've ever released and the one that best represents me. This album is really introspective and very important for me, it was inspired from the experience of the impossible things happened in the last years and from everyday stuff. This isn't a guitar album, as I wanted all the instruments to have the same importance in every song. I really care recording all music in general with particular attention”.

“Secrets Within” two movements are sub titled, “Into The Dark Line” which is the heavy part of the album and is more into shred and progressive metal yet with a lot of themes, melodies and unison passages. Whilst the second movement of the album “Out Of The Dark Line” is acoustic and is only guitar and piano/keyboards with more delicate melodies and some really introspective moments.

“Secrets Within” sees Francesco team up with a wealth of virtuoso musicians in Kyle Honea on Bass and Lucrezio de Seta on Drums. On these musicians contribution Francesco states, “The experience and confidence of players like Kyle Honea and Lucrezio de Seta improved the songs because they understood exactly what I wanted to record and they played with their style but focusing on my main idea. They are the best rhythm section ever heard!”

“Secrets Within also features guest keyboard/piano solos from Vitalij Kuprij (Artension / ex Ring Of Fire / Solo) and Bob Katsionis (Imaginery / Firewind / Solo).

The CD also contains extra material with photos, transcriptions, videos, a diary of the making of “Secrets Within” and much more.

Francesco Fareri - Secrets Within
Aforesaid Italian 7-string guitar player was born in Rome and he is currently a teacher at a music school there. Aside from his two solo releases which have been recorded so far, he also published three instructional materials and cooperated with the likes of Vitalij Kuprij, Cyril Lepizzera, Kyle Honea, Jim Horne, Christian Pulkinen, Thomas Bressel, OSF Project, Citriniti and he has just formed KF Project.

The third act in his solo activity was recorded alongside an American bassist Kyle Honea and Italian drummer Lucrezio De Seta as the basic line-up. Francesco came up with an excellent idea to divide CD into two parts: "Into The Dark" and "Out Of The Dark". The first one is much more heavy and faster, however the second part is coming down a peg or two. Just listen to the title track on which Francesco plays together with an Ukrainian keyboard and piano virtuoso Vitalij Kuprij in order to encounter guitar pyrotechnics and key fireworks. They wage a kind of instrumental warfare where speed, precision and ideal performance are the characteristics. They easily juggle the tones, so I guess their scope are unlimited. There is also another guest keyboardist - Bob Katsionis (Imaginery, Firewind) who plays key solos on "Liquid World". His playing is more subdued in comparison to Kuprij's, but most significant is the fact it fits to Francesco's parts perfectly. I am sure that their artistic liaison is succeeded with a measureable advantage. An important role is also played by a bass virtuoso Kyle Honea whose fingering is comparable to Billy Sheehan's. Despite the high speed of Francesco's music, his instrumental concepts are sheer and don't pour together into an unrecognizable plastic, haha. All fluid chops and mad accelerations ensures us an abundance of rich solos at really fast tempo. On the second part of "Secrets Within", Francesco unleashes all emotions out of his mind showing an ability to express the artisitc anger and sensibility as well. It proves that Mr. Fareri is both a professional guitarist as well as a great keyboardist. Dividing the CD into two parts is perfect idea, since every listener can have a rest after shredding frenzy, haha. Italian's acoustic and delicate tones are as picturesque as Govi's soft works.

Anyway, it is necessary to mention this music is very melodic and well-arranged. A sonic waves can cause a goose bump, and neoclassical battering ram can shred you to pieces as well, haha. I think that classifying his style as instrumental progressive metal with shredding arpeggios and neoclassical overtone mirrors the contests best. Undoubtedly, he is one of the fastest and most adroit shredders on the globe. Generally, "Secrets Within" offers an insane music for sane people, haha, so I can heartedly recommend this CD to the fanbase of George Bellas and not only.
