Alberto Rigoni Lets Three Wise Monkeys Loose
Alberto Rigoni has released Three Wise Monkeys, the title track from his upcoming album in which he explores the Japanese folk story of the same name.
It’s a full-power rock track, but there’s still space to apply a few surprising twists and turns to keep things lively.
Vocals are supplied by Goran Erdman of Ynwie Malmsteen and John Norum fame. The other musicians are guitarist Tommy Ermolli (TwinSpirits, Khymera), keyboardist Alessandro Bertoni (Aphelion) and drummer Paco Barilla.
Rigoni has welcomed a stack of guest artists including Jonas Eixon (Alicate), Kevin Moore (ex-Dream Theater, OSI), Mark Cross (ex-Halloween, Firewind, Mistheria (Bruce Dickinson) and others.
He provides his own tour-de-force performance on bass – although he feels this album is more of collaborative experience than simply a solo album.
Three Wise Monkeys is released on October 1.
