The Answer of Insanity
Style: Hard Rock
Release date: 1 September, 2014
Playing time: 44:22

Faithsedge hails from California and the only member I recognize in the line up is Eric Ragno. He is most known for being on many melodic rock albums such as Fergie Frederiksen (Toto) and Trixter’s great return album 'New Audio Machine'. This is something different in my ears and is a bit from the melodic rock he has been doing before.

Faithsedge serves a musical production with raw, naked, energetic hard rock spiced with some excellent guitar skills. Giancarlo contacted producer and bass player Fabrizio Grossi (Steve Lukather/Alice Cooper) after being impressed with his work on numerous albums as a producer and his amazing bass playing skills. This album didn't grip my spine in the very first spin. It took a while to digest "The Answer of Insanity", but the songs began to grow and grow, after my tenth or twelve listenings, it fell on the right spots.

Giancarlo and c/o is giving us a disc with melodic hard rock with kick-ass tempo and their enthusiastic level is quite high. Very driven hard rock with splashes of heavy metal in some of the tracks. Very strong and passionate vocals from Giancarlo backed by the hard hitting drummer Tony Morra (Rebecca St James, Van Zant) and of course fat keys from both Eric and the big little man Alessandro Del Vecchio.

Old school hard rock dressed in a kind of modern hard rock clothes, but the fire and love to the raw, true hard rock is shining through. Not a masterpiece, but a really good rock album with big heart for the classic heavy hard rock.
