"The new record's heavy, very dark and
classically influenced, with the usual mix of strong
melodies and fierce metal riffage that are a constant on all
my previous releases. This is without a doubt my best effort
both sonically and guitar playing wise . I can't wait til

Perhaps better known as the keyboardist and musical
mastermind behind Twinspirits, Genius Rock Opera, Cosmics
and Khymera; the multi-talented Daniele Liverani is also a
guitarist of considerable skill as his new instrumental
album "Eleven Mysteries" will testify on
20th July 2012
While “Eleven Mysteries” is basically a guitar oriented
album, the overall vibe of all the songs is definitely more
like a “conceptual instrumental album” where guitar has the
role of a “virtual singer”.
Musically there's some intense shred, but also some very
melodic moments, and the musicianship and arrangements of
the talented line up involved helped to create a wide
variety of atmospheres and different musical moments; due to
the skills and different influences of the various musicians
- drummer Paco Barilla’, bassist Tony Dickinson and
keyboardist Marco Zago.
However, this not only an album for guitar lovers, but for
anyone that appreciates musical composition on a more
general level with lots to discover in and each and every
track along with a first class production.

House of Shakira’s current album ‘HoS’
has been winning the band considerable worldwide praise from
press and fans both old and new alike with many calling it
their best yet and a serious contender for melodic rock
album of 2012.
Now the band is pleased to introduce the first of three
promotional videos to be released over the next 3 months.
The first track to get the video treatment is ‘Zodiac
Maniac’, a buoyant rocker which does a good job of
representing the bands new tougher sound whilst still
retaining their classic rich vocal harmonies and eastern
tinged riffs which became the bands trademark on albums like
‘Lint’ and ‘First Class’.
We have just received the finished master of the new
Venturia album. We are blown away by the
quality of musicianship, song writing and production that
the French metallers have produced.
Look out for
full info and a stunning promotional video soon.
