“I began work on Journey Through My Memory in September 2013, when by chance I was watching Frances Ford Coppola’s Dracula, which gave me the inspiration to write the album’s first track, Demeter (the name of the ship on which Dracula arrives in England.)  From there I started down the path of writing through to July 2014, when I finished the track that closes the album, The Art of Ending.

I do a lot of driving, so the ideas for many of my songs come to me in the car, or perhaps after a dream.  The first thing I do is record the melody on my smartphone, and then I slowly develop them in my recording studio.

The title of the album stems from the fact that every track is in some way about me, about my past, about how my past experiences creatively explode into music.

For this album I had in mind a symphonic metal sound, and so I included in each track some epic orchestral parts.  I am a huge fan of soundtracks, especially those made for historical fantasy films, and I think this influence is evident on the album.

Each song has a memorable melody, and I try to infuse emotion through the orchestral arrangements.  Naturally, that aspect of virtuosity can’t be forgotten, but everything is always in the service of the song, as they say.

For Journey I wanted to improve the quality exponentially in relation to my first album The Mansion of Lost Souls, on which I played all of the instruments.  And so I started to look around because I knew I could find a better drummer and bassist.  I sent a few demos to some famous drummers, and I received some positive feedback from the great John Macaluso (whom I knew from his work with Malmsteen) who agreed to play drums on the album.  We scheduled our first recording session together in Siracusa in October 2014, and soon after we had all of the drum tracks laid down.  In November 2014 Dino Fiorenza contacted me.  John had played some of his songs for me, and knowing his style and virtuosity, I asked if he’d be interested in playing on the whole album.  He enthusiastically accepted.  We finished recording in December 2014 and started mixing right away at Dupin Studios in Catania.  Everything was completed in March 2014.  I’m proud of the work that we’ve done, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.”
