TwinSpirits – Legacy
Release date: February 18th 2011
Label: Lion Music
Italian progressive metal band Twinspirits return with their third album “Legacy” on 18th February 2011. “Legacy” takes all the best aspects of the bands previous two releases and adds a heavier dynamic and more cohesive sound thanks to a fixed line-up, the same that delivered the highly praised “The Forbidden City” and spent time on the road promoting that release.
“Legacy” marks the second album of vocalist Göran Nyström in the band, and his voice delivers another commanding performance over the material penned by band mastermind and keyboardist Daniele Liverani. Guitarist Tommy Ermolli takes a heavier role this time round whilst the rhythm section of bassist Alberto Rigoni and drummer Dario Ciccioni hold down the complex patterns with precision.
“Legacy” is divided in 2 main parts. In the first part we have 6 powerful straight ahead songs, still being progressive in nature and with a more direct feel to them than has been heard from the band before. The second part of the album is a multi suite movement, “The Endless Sleep”, divided in 5 songs (symphonic intro + 4 songs) that is more like an album within an album being very theatrical and visionary.
All songs written and composed by Daniele Liverani.
Additional orchestration, Violins and violas on “The Endless Sleep” by Robin Olson.
Drums recorded at Fear Studios, Alfonsine Italy, engineered by Gabriele Ravaglia.
Everything else recorded at Black Stripes Studios, Monselice, Italy.
Mixed and mastered by Daniele Liverani.
