“The giant within”, the new album by Mike Bertoli's Avatar, is out now.
Eight songs with different line-ups, with relevant guests such as Goran Edman, Ian Parry, Nicolas Pandolfi, Rob Della Frera, Luca Sellitto, Val Shieldon and Giacomo Calabria.
In some tracks there are members of the Hot Cherry Band: Jacopo “Jack” Mascagni, Stefano “Jaghe” Morandini and, above all, Nik Capitini who also recorded, mixed and mastered the album.
A sort of organized chaos, where everything is at the service of the songs and nothing is left to chance.
Hard rock and heavy metal, like the old school Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, are the pillars of the album, but there are also thrash and groove influences (Megadeth and Pantera) and prog contaminations like Dream Theater and Fates Warning.
“The giant within” is a concept album focused on personal growth, full of surprises and where boredom is banished.
