Back with his third solo album “When
Reality Is Nothing”, Moonlight Comedy
guitarist Simone Fiorletta takes the
listener on a voyage through a myriad of rock
guitar textures and expressions. Building
upon the foundations laid by his two previous
solo efforts (“Parallel Worlds” and “My Secret
Diary”) Simone has come up with an album that
shows a change in his approach to the
instrument, with a more earthy texture and
mature penmanship yet all led by the luxurious
guitar work that has earnt Simone a legion of
“When Reality Is Nothing” is a solid rock guitar album with each
tracks inspiration coming from Simone’s own
personal experiences, mirroring his soul.
Opener “Thanx” is a dedication to
Simone’s own parents, whilst “My Brother”
is a musical reflection of his brothers’
personality and spirits. More earthy topics
also were sources of inspiration with “Like
A Bird” being penned to represent a sense
Once again Simone has worked with
Labyrinth keyboardist Andrea De Paoli
whilst the drum stool is largely occupied
this time by
Marco Aiello with bass
work being handled by Matteo Raggi. To
add further flavour to the album Simone called
upon special guests to add their own classy
performances. One of instrumental guitar’s
leading authorities Neil Zaza provides
a solo, whilst keyboard whiz Mistheria
(Bruce Dickinson, Angel Of Eden) adds further
keyboard flourishes. Simone’s fellow
Moonlight Comedy musicians Valerio
D'Anna (Synth) and Armando Pizzuti
(Bass) also lend their skills to their fellow
band mates’ solo album.
“When Reality Is Nothing”
was written and recorded over a short space of
time from Nov 2008 to March 2009. This
timescale helped lend a new freshness to
Simone’s solo work, and indeed further
inspiration derived by it being the first
album to be recorded, edited, mixed and
mastered personally in Simone’s own studio "SF
Digital Studio", with the exception of the
drums being recorded by Sandro Assante at "BlabLab"
“When Reality Is Nothing”
is an album that will appeal to fans of early
albums from Joe Satriani (The Extremist) and
indeed those from one of its contributors Neil
Zaza. Simply said an enthralling release for
anyone with an interest in modern rock guitar.
