from Italy, Farther Paint are at the forefront
of a new movement of progressive metal hailing
from the country and were discovered on
myspace. Farther Paint plays highly technical
progressive metal but always with a keen
eye on the song being the overall important
Farther Paint carry the distinction
of being fronted by the soulful female vocals
of Monia Rossi, a voice that is able to
convey pure emotion and adds an exciting
element to the bands sound. Musically the
band are fronted by the guitars of Francesco
Federici, the keyboards of Gabriele Manocchi
all underpinned by the bass work of Thomas
Bianchi and drum monster Luca Primawhose work here deserves to propel him to
the forefront of modern day drum masters.
Control” is an experimental album
where the instrumental parts don't prevail
over the voice, but support it. It's composed
by 8 tracks with two purely instrumental
bookends. The first "lose control"
is opening while "anger" sum up
the whole concept album bringing it to a
turning point. Farther Paint are about conveying
an original sound, which is given prominence
by vocals parts and by lyrics. The aim of
the lyrics is to convey the same feelings
expressed by the instrumentation.
the bands sound, the band comment, “It’s
a perfect transposition of what we felt
inside, in our heart, in our hands. It has
been created in a free way without falling
in what is expected by this kind of music
and for this very reason we chose a female
voice. In this way we could experiment without
any limits, in a different way, maybe innovative.
We were looking for a kind music not so
easily classifiable, a mix of each member’s
musical backgrounds to reach a shape that
is unique, refined and with a particular
attention for the technicality”.
