With "Phantom Sounds" AMORIELLO has thrown out its best release so far Anyone who knows the first releases of AMORIELLO will immediately feel at home on "Phantom Sounds". 80s BLACK SABBATH and DIO are still recognizable, many nods towards RAINBOW and DEEP PURPLE, also through the keyboards of Anthony Stahl and Ariel Perchuk (KENZINER, LILIUMDUST). Which sound much more embedded here and do not serve as filler sounds, often inviting you to listen more closely. The rhythm section lays a fitting foundation for the host's guitar work. Thomas AMORIELLO's love for MALMSTEEN gives way to a broader field of Swedish hard'n'heavy bands, whereby his hero of course still resonates through from time to time.
As a guitarist, it is easy to see who Thomas had in mind when developing his guitar work. Without falling into flat quotations from the role models, it always sounds like AMORIELLO. Together with strong, suitable voices and great musicians, he has, you can chisel that in stone, thrown out his best release so far. Thomas gave it a powerful, timeless sound together with co-producer Carlos Alvarez. The album was mastered by Brett Caldas-Lima at Tower Studio (Montpellier, France).
"Phantom Sounds" should please every friend of traditional Metal/Hard Rock who pays attention to the bands mentioned. It would be nice for Thomas to be able to make a name for himself with AMORIELLO on the new album. - Frank Hellweg
