Daniele Liverani is a multi-instrumental musician out of Italy. He plays mostly in the
Metal genre, but you can hear some other genres under neath as well. He started out back
in 1988 releasing some solo projects, but later started the band EMPTY TREMOR. He
has released a bunch of releases with them as well as doing his solo project. The solo stuff
he does is an all instrumental band. This band plays in the Progressive Rock / Metal genre
and has some really well thought out songs in structure & arrangements. The music here
has a bit of a fantasy feel to it, which is the concept of the album, from the title. There is a
bit of a classic 70's styled Rock influence that almost sounds like a Rock opera type. This
doesn't surprise me as Daniele has even developed a Genius Rock Opera in the past.
Daniele is the corner stone of the Italian Metal scene and really reminded me of a better
and more technical and precise version of Steve Vai, but with a much smoother and slicker
style. Instrumental albums are not for everyone out there, I know, I'm picky when it comes
to instrumentals. For those who are though, they are going to eat this up. Think of
DREAM THEATRE meets Steve Vai meets RUSH meets BLACKMORE'S NIGHT.
These guys are top notch musicians and "FANTASIA" really showcases this. Daniele
Liverani has also been in some other well known bands such as KHYMERA,
TWINSPIRITS, COSMICS, PRIME SUSPECT & EMPTY TREMOR. Check out this
amazing musician in his solo career as well as his other bands. Truly amazing!
