ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Three years have passed since Marco Ferrigno?s acclaimed "Promised Land" project with Vitalij Kuprij (Artension / Ring Of Fire). Since then Marco has been working on his masterpiece which is now ready - Hanging Gardens. The new album showcases the talents of Tony Franklin on bass and Marco Minnemann on drums, with guest appearances on track 2 by one of Marco?s main influences - George Bellas - and Marco?s "Promised Land" collaborator Javier Leal on tracks 3 and 6. Marco comments, "I am very pleased for the upcoming release of this album. I had the freedom to use various types of odd tempos, poly-rhythmic lines and time modulations based on a 16th and 8th note pulse. Solos are based on a lot of the melodic minor modes like Mixolydian b6 and Lydian b7 along with the usual major scale modes but with less of the modal soloing and more chord modulations. Chords are basic triad inversions with changing base notes most of the time, but many are suspended and 7th chords and a few chords are based on quartal harmony for a more modern sound."

Marco Ferrigno - Hanging Gardens
Five years passed from Ferrigno's debut release "The Quest" (2001). This time Mexican undertakes a journey to Babylon and allows us to immerse into mythical atmosphere. He managed to create fabulous and mysterious land of music in progressive convention. Compositions are based on shredding-esque structure and improvisations characteristic of fusion style. Mid- and fast tempos predominate on the album. We can also write down some agogical changes in compositions' foundations. Marco has very flexible fingers letting him adroitly move through the guitar neck. Here are also two guest guitarists: George Bellas (former Ferrigno's teacher) and a compatriot - Javier Leal (responsible for production). The ladder is well-known from a project "Promised Land" (2003), where he appeared beside Vitalij Kuprij and Marco himself. I think that Ferrigno is in the stage of his teacher's fascination. I must admit that Mexican is very much looked up to George Bellas's guitar manner. His parts are diversified by rhythm section in the form of a bassist Tony Franklin (Blue Murder, The Firm) and a drummer Marco Minnemann whose parts are characterized by jazz-ish "inclinations". Summing up, "Hanging Gardens" is a tale-spinning that can be heard with closed eyes. It can be recommended for practised listeners and those who fell in love with George Bellas', Tom Hess' and Vivien Lalu's music.
