ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Parallel Worlds is the stunning international debut solo album from Simone Fiorletta, guitarist of Italian progressive power metal sensations Moonlight Comedy. At the age of 17, Fiorletta formed the aforementioned Moonlight Comedy, who released the album "The Life Inside" in 2004 through Lion Music. This release gained worldwide acclaim, which proclaimed a fresh sound in the genre, and Simone started to gain a reputation for being an impressive guitarist with music fans and critics alike. In the same year, Simone also released a solo album, “The Beginning”, independently in Italy. Work then began on the tracks which would make up Parallel Worlds, which showcases Simone’s own distinctive technical, yet soulful, style - and is sure to bring his name to a wider audience.

Simone Fiorletta - Parallel Worlds
Simone used to learn playing the piano in childhood. The repertoire of his practices was easy to foresee and based on Beethoven's, Mozart's and Chopin's works. When he was seventeen, he founded a progpower band - Moonlight Comedy. Two debut albums were published in 2004: Moonlight Comedy's "The Life Inside" and a solo CD - "The Beginning".

We got his second solo release after next twelve months. It is as specific material as AOR music for instance. You can like albums with instrumental music or, simply, not. There isn't something halfway between listeners' attitudes. It's a basic principle most of you are directed by. Unfortunately, there is a handful of those people who estimate an artistic value of instrumental genres. There is also a group of people who consider virtuosity fast fingering through the guitar neck and nothing more. In this case, they reveal his ignorance and disability of such a music's reception. Additionally, they accuse virtuosi of duplicating commonplace ideas. Well, let's look at other hard'n'heavy subgenres and ask yourself a question: "in that case, what is new in other genres?". Most instrumentalists' abilities leave a lot to be desired, but we can't accuse virtuosos of it for sure! Unfortunately, such negative-attituded people towards virtuosi aren't exceptions. If you have extra abilities, you become a threat for other average musicians. But, it's their people's worry, not mine or virtuosi's.

I am pretty sure that people who have insufficient knowledge on subject matter shouldn't evaluate Simone's music. They could argue that Mr. Fiorletta didn't invent anything new, the album is too calm and they are threatened sleeping. They could also act a wise guys saying that there are progression a bit and a few faster Harley-esque tracks, but it's nothing new in general. And, additionally, that damn classical guitar contaminating innocent genre of metal ore, haha. I am bursting with laughter!

Yeah, it's true that Simone created nothing new, but I am not sure if he cared deeply about it. Indeed, we can find influences of Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Neil Zaza in his music, but they were hard to avoid, especially as a nineteen-year-old Simone supported that second one. Actually, I have one accusation against Simone's album. In my opinion, it was needless to add a bonus track - "Lullaby for Laura" deriving from the debut album. Actually, I must admit that Emiliano Germani doesn't sing, but rather utters two vowels ("a" and "u") out of his vocal cords. In fact, it can be hardly thrilling for the listener. I think also that, for the sake of such a material's character, its sound could have been better. Simone is a capable youth, but he has to walk ahead and speed up to keep artistic pace with aforementioned guitar masters. We shall wait for the third CD and pronounce the final verdict then, haha.
