Fabrizio Leo – Spectrum of My Past (2014)

From the crowd of Italian blood shred guitarist, Fabrizio "Bicio" Leo is mostly under the radar. He seems enjoying more as sideman compared to Marco Sfogli, Simone Fiorletta, Francesco Fareri, Daniele Liverani and so on. No mistakes, this guy has numbers of excellent port folio under his possession. In 2000s, Mike Varney called regarding his works sent to Mike. Thus the creation of Fabrizio first album "Cutaway" in 2006 that continued to "Mr. Malusardi" in 2011. If you haven't heard about those then check it now. For his latest work, is "Spectrum of My Past". Fabrizio third album was not made in Shrapnel any more, a new label Jellybeards records instead. The album also support by Alex Argento, Italiano shred keyboardist.

The styles and feels are exactly twin brother to the album "Mr. Malusardi". Structure are kind of progressive, very dynamics and tons of shreds. The styles from standard minor progressive feel in the first track all the way ended with latin beat in "Samba C". Here a quick styles and comments on all tracks:
