Phoenix Rising - 2011 - Demo
What I Feel
I Will Find My Way Home Now
Believe (Feeling Forever)
Coming out from the ashes of the underground melodic scene, Rockshots Music Management & Promotion Agency is proud to present Phoenix Rising, a new sensational AOR band from Rome/Italy presenting its first self-titled demo tape. Here you can find 6 songs of high quality AOR – melodic rock reminiscent of the great bands of the genre such as Journey, Giant, Boston, Pride Of Lions just to name a few with a very personal songwriting and taste of writing melodies. Catchy refrains since the very first listening and outstanding sense of melody are the trademarks of these 6 demo tracks.
The Phoenix Rising project was created in 2008 by Titta Tani (ex-DGM, Daemonia, Goblin, Ashent) and Andrea Gentili, the duo worked hard on the new material which can be found on this demo tape but the project was moved aside for a period of time due to personal circumstances and studio engagements. But now the time has come!!! Today Phoenix Rising is a real and full-time band which with its sound and music wishes to create something fresh and interesting in the AOR / Melodic Rock scene.
Led by Titta Tani (who also took care of all the lyrics and the drums on the demo) on vocals and background vocals and by the very talented guitar playerAndrea Gentili, the band is also made up of Francesco Di Battista on drums, Gilles Boscolo (Ashent) on keyboards and Alessandro Jacobi (Burning Black) on bass. Two of the songs included on this demo tape, Believe (Feeling Forever) and Fade Away have been written, played and arranged by Andrea Maddalone, the guitar player of the Italian progsters legends New Trolls (and well known session player for many other important acts). After having released these 6 songs demo tape, the band is once again in the studio writing new material which will be released pretty soon in a full length album followed by a tour.
