Citriniti feat. Fabrizio Leo - Citriniti feat. Fabrizio Leo - 2008 - Citriniti Records

The brothers Citriniti play bass and drums, started in the prog metal corner, but quickly developed a liking to jazz rock and merge since these styles. On their third output, this time also appeared on their own label, they have again (like its predecessor) the Italian guitarist Fabrizio Leo on board, so in addition to all the rhythmic explosions also what is being done for the "tunes". Domenico C. on bass and Danilo C. on drums ignite an almost incredible fireworks of breaks, fills, curved bars, wild, time-shifting, snare and bass drum attacks, high-energy bass lines, funky bubbling rhythm and vital interaction. Listening to this musical acrobatics, may already be full evening alone. The Italians it at even create to sound earthy and extremely groovy, is on the whole still really the crown. Nevertheless, a pure rhythm and percussion orgy would be in the long run but hard substance. But there's still Fabrizio Leo. Leo is a renowned Italian session guitarist and lends his skills else ever seen such illustrious acts like Umberto Tozzi or Eros Ramazotti. Well, as blends together? Perfect! Leo lets it all out here what he have to curb in its mainstream jobs. Razor sharp riffing, bold, aggressive solos, jazzy runs and high-speed fretboard hunts shakes Leo only out of his sleeve and lets the listener now definitely no chance to catch your breath longer. The three Italians hunt through their pieces and pour the defenseless listener with a plethora of notes, breaks, fills, rhythmic anomalies until it cries for mercy, but of course this cry died away unheard. The musical energy of these eruptions pushes the listener literally on the wall. Guest keyboardist De Paoli controls a few gimmicks and subtle orchestrations in, that was it but also and make sure that everything on what to harmony and melody in need can stop it. So the make trying out a bow to the album. However, if the center of the triangle Spaced Out - Planet X - McGill / Manring / Stevens studied and in the musical excesses of Nathan Mahl eyes light up, which should give a chance Citriniti. © Thomas Kohlruß © 1999-2014, The copyright of all texts by their respective authors http://www.babyblaue-seiten.de/album_9358.html [Review translated from German]
