After the great success of "Three Wise Monkeys" which featured amazing contributions from legendary musicians such as Kevin Moore (ex-Dream Theater), Göran Edman (ex-Yngwie Malmsteen), Italian bassist and prog rock composer Alberto Rigoni releases his fourth album entitled "Overloaded". More heavy and progressive than its predecessors, the new album, fully instrumental, is inspired by Alberto's vision of our contemporary society. "I think that everything is going too fast today and one of the reasons is technology: hyper fast communications (mostly through social networks), multitasking activities, tons of information as well as misinformation, products, services... In a couple of words - we are OVERLOADED! The Internet has changed our lives, and even though it is indeed a great tool we have to be careful and use it judiciously. Excessive use may cause several diseases such as stress, depression, and social isolation." explains Alberto.
Spanning genres from progressive metal to rock to ambient and atmospheric, the album also features top class Italian musicians: drummer Denis Novello, keyboard player Federico Solazzo, guitarists Simone Mularoni (DGM, Empyrios), Marco Sfogli James LaBrie), and Fabrizio "Bicio" Leo.
OVERLOADED is a solid progressive rock/metal "journey" and not a bass player's ego trip!"
"This album is dedicated to the great bassist Randy Coven who sadly passed away on May 2oth 2014. R.I.P. Randy, you will always inspire my music!" – Alberto Rigoni
