There are 2 Artists with the same name on Last.fm: 1. Post-rock trio from La Floresta, Spain comprising Jordi Guzman (drums), Albert Clemente (bass guitar) and Roger Guzman (guitar). http://www.astralia.net https://astralia.bandcamp.com 2. Progressive rock band (Riccardo Loriggiola, Dario Andreella, Giovanni Binato, Massimiliano Biolo, Massimo Loriggiola) In September 1999 the band started to record its first CD - supported by Mellow Records, historical label of the Italian progressive music. They worked to the end of November to complete “Connected”. Their sound could be compared with bands like King Crimson, Rush and Queensryche... but anyway it keeps the distance from each one, so that one of the product’s and band's main quality is originality. “Connected” contains 8 tracks (plus a "bonus track"), all new, with lyrics in English. “Connected” could be considered a "concept album": it talks about an old sage, Rabin, who travels to a beautiful planet: “Astralia”, with wonderful people and special music. That's off course a metaphore, a way to treat nowadays' problems such as the hardness to find an identity out of the conventional schemes (“Genesi’s doubt”), the troubled love affairs (“Breaking the silence”), the hard dad-son relationship (“Dedalo’s torment”), the self-confidence search (“The conquest”), the dream as a mind trip (“Signals from unconscious”) and finally a sense of peace when planet Astralia is reached (“The arrival”). The band invites to this trip between sounds and rhythms, sometime sweet, sometime shooting, to tell the difficulty hidden in an ambitious run which anyway leads to everyone’s satisfacyion. Massimo Danieli, singer, took the place of Stefano Borga and worked with Astralia for many months, 'till Massimiliano Biolo arrived and entered at all the project. Actually he's not only Astralia's main voice, but he's working also in composition and lyrics revising and authoring. The band has now finished with the new Promo CD and with many new Demo Songs too, and it's ready for a 2nd CD.
