Hey peeps, this is another kick in the butt. The second long awaited release from Faithsedge “The Answer to Insanity” is now ready, and will hit stores and whatnot in September 2014 thru Scarlet Records. I had the great pleasure to produce and mix this record , and once again , the gang kept it up till its very last note .I am really pleased to hear that the record is already exceeding all expectations with extremely positive reviews and orders….even before its release. We wanted a record that reflected the gravity of our times, both musically and lyrically and that respected our pledge to a heavier, organic, un-apologetic and extremely rough sound. It was only natural that we ended up with the record we ended up with, which it was really satisfying for us , but we were curious to see what the public response would have been. Well, so far…so GREAT !
The record can already be pre ordered on ITunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-answer-of-insanity/id898494128) Amazon, Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Faithsedge_The_Answer_of_Insanity?id=B7noj55z2jfzkia4ac2ztcmqpba&hl=en) etc. and yes, there will be a Japanese version as well (http://www.amazon.co.jp/Answer-Insanity-Faithsedge/dp/B00LJWUPSA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1406455023&sr=8-2&keywords=faithsedge)
Hey buds, i just wrapped up the production of Satellite Sky’s new record, and i couldn’t be more excited because it will be available for everyone’s pleasure very very soon. This amazing Australian duo, consisting of brother & sister Pete and Kim Kicks deliver a powerful mix of Brit. decadent glam of T.Rex and Ziggy Stardust memory, with late 70′s Punk & New wave and Black Keys’ love affair for vintage instruments and soundscape.

January 3rd 2014, was an important date for me, it marked the beginning of Dr.Z & The Supersonic Blues Machine debut album and the beginning of yet another journey. Dr.Z & SBM is a “certifiable” Blues/Blues-Rock band consisting of drumming legend Kenny Aronoff , myself and Texas slinger Lance Lopez . Both on record and live , we’ll have a good share of friends performing with us and pushing us to deliver the ultimate blue/rock/jam experience. As per now, Billy F. Gibbons already marked his territory on our record, and more buddies will do so in the next few weeks. Keep on checking in, you won’t be disappointed. Dr.Z & The Supersonic Blues Machine’s record and tour , will hit the world in the Fall of 2014. Thanks for all the support and interest showed so far. Grazie FG
Garage blasters Scotch Ale have a brand new CD out titled “Naked”. Mixed and produced by Fabrizio Grossi, the record is a solid mix of catchy songs, vintage tones and garage/radio/punk energy. Check out the video of the CD’s first single “Change my life” :
The Huntington Beach (CA) Metal ensemble Faithsedge and Fabrizio Grossi are currently recording the follow up to their debut album Faithsedge (on Scarlet Rec) which was extremely well welcomed by critics, fans and industry.
Expect the band’s new installment to sound more raw, heavy and very unapologetic.
The record is supposed to hit the stores late spring 2013.
