Rebirth shows an extreme variety of music that remains memorable, even catchy with a union of experimental melody, rock-prog-fusion with sometimes heavy and sometimes ambient rock creating a poetic mix that is free of a defined genre. Included on the album credits, are some very well known names! Boasting contributions from, Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree / King Krimson), John Macaluso (Ark, ex-Malmsteen, TNT), Michael Manring and Yves Carbonne, and several others great players from DGM, Astra, Twinspirits and more.
Besides his solo career, Alberto is also known as member and bass player of the progressive metal band TwinSpirits and founder of the new pop electro duo Lady & the BASS.
Born in Montebelluna (Treviso, Italy) in 1981, bass player Alberto Rigoni founded, together with drummer Enrico Buttol, a well-known progressive-metal cover band, "Ascra", performing mainly songs by Dream Theater. In 2003 he joined the emerging band "Twinspirits" (progressive rock metal), led by Daniele Liverani (Genius Rock Opera, Khymera, ex-Empty Tremor). The band's debut album "The Music That Will Heal The World" was released worldwide in 2007 by Finnish label Lion Music and received remarkable feedback. Besides Twinspirits, Rigoni followed a very personal artistic way, composing a solo album entitled "Something Different", released by Lion Music on February 15th 2008 with worldwide distribution. At the same time Alberto shot a video of his hit song “BASSex” (working with Italian company “Solingo Visual Arts”) directed by Elia Cristofoli. The video was broadcast on some television networks such as RockTV in Europe.

If you can envision a mix between Rush, Tommy Emmanuel and, to an extent, Stanley Clarke, you should get the musical gist of this quasi-instrumental album by Alberto Rigoni. Although still quite young, Alberto has already reached enviable levels of musicality and “Rebirth” is a testament to this. ~Power of Metal
If you play bass, don’t let Alberto Rigoni’s Rebirth pass you by. If you simply like good modern rock, get it. If you enjoy music for music’s sake then you can’t do much better than this. Rebirth is modern melodic rock at its finest. ~HardRock Heaven
Alberto Rigoni's Rebirth is an entertaining delight of real rock fusion, and casts him as a composer of great talent that transcends genres. ~Danger Dog
Rigoni really captives the ears not only with his playing, but also how he presents it with the tunage involved. A little bit of Dave LaRue, Michael Manring (who appears on this album), and Billy Sheehan, with the occasional metal vibe of Twinspirits and experimental flexing of Michael Hedges, Rebirth is an album of both melodic and musicianship grandeur. ~Ytsejam.com
Thanks for putting this album together, Alberto - you are a man of diversity, innovation, passion, and great spirit. The face of modern bass music. ~ThunderRow
If you like some hard rock mixed with your smooth bass, kind of like a black and tan from your favorite bar, then you need to check out the mix on Rebirth. ~Prog Rock Music Talk
