"Alchemy of Life - Soundtrack A.D.1312" is my first solo album, recorded between 1999 and 2000 with my PC, my Guitar, a Line6 POD, a Creamware Pulsar audio card and samples.
It is a work difficult to describe, because it blends very different kind of music. Principally, "Alchemy of Life - Soundtrack A.D.1312" is a Ghotic Metal album, but you can find also a lot of Epic and Doom Metal. In some pieces I include very boombastic orchestrations, in a way that remember Rhapsody's "Legendary Tales" and "Symphony of Enchenated Lands". I was also strongly influenced by classical music and great movie soundtrack composers. But my work doesn't stop here...
My idea was to compose a soundtrack for a fantasy story, and this is exactly what I did: I wrote a short fantasy tale and then I composed the music which describes the event told in my story... The result is a mostly instumental album, with 9 great epic songs for a total running time of 40 minutes.
For this reason, if you want to listen to my music, I strongly suggest you to read the story before you begin to listen to the songs. I think the best experience is to listen to the whole album, at least for the first time, without any interruption: in this way I hope the music will bring to life the characters, the images and the events of this tale just as you would watching a movie.
