DANIELE MAZZA – Immortals
Born in Cesena in 1987, Daniele Mazza is the founder, main songwriter and lyricist of the Symphonic Power Metal act Ancient Bards. With “Immortals”, he’ll appeal to a broad spectrum of classically oriented music fans – aficionados of film score giants such as Hans Zimmer (“Pearl Harbor”, “Rain Man”) as well as friends of New York’s bombast rockers Trans-Siberian Orchestra (“Beethoven’s Last Night”) or Sweden’s Stratocaster Paganini, Yngwie Malmsteen (“Concerto Suite for Electric Guitar and Orchestra in E-flat Minor”).
The facets of the eleven equally soulful and powerfully staged tracks reflect Daniele’s original passion for highly emotional film music – very much in the spirit of his admired legends Thomas Bergersen and Nick Phoenix aka Two Steps From Hell and their work for numerous cinema blockbusters.
The solo voice of “Immortals” (on the balladesque track “Time To Go”) was contributed by soprano Sara Squadrani (Ancient Bards). Aresea vocalist Chiara Di Mare can be heard providing background vocals to accompany the choir sequences. The lead guitars magically hovering above the deep sound carpet are provided by Ancient Bards guitarist Claudio Pitronik
