“The Answer of Insanity” is the second album from Californian band Faithsedge, following on from their self-titled debut that was released in 2011. The new album is released through Scarlet Records on 1st September and delivers ten great rock tracks. The press release states that Faithsedge provide “a perfect mix of hard rock, heavy metal and progressive, with lots of vocals and hooks, shredding guitar solos, pounding bass and drums and plenty of melodically challenging songwriting.” Who am I to argue with that!?!
Faithsedge was formed in 2009 by Giancarlo Floridia who provides lead vocals. The line up from the first album returns with Fabrizio Grossi (who also produced the album) on bass, Alex De Rosso on guitar and Tony Morra on drums, being joined this time by Eric Ragno on keyboards. Those musicians bring a wealth of experience having performed with the likes of Alice Cooper, Dokken, Van Zant and Eric Martin. Musician / producer Alex Del Vecchio also features as a guest keyboard player.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”
The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. To be honest I’m not really a big fan of “Reviews” expressing positives or negatives which essentially just represent one person’s opinion. With “NI Rocks Recommends”, I'll not be giving marks or ratings or dissecting every aspect of the album; just telling you that something about the artist and the album and that I like it!
My musical tastes covers most things from heavy melodic rock (anything too melodic bores me!) to the lower echelons of the metal genre (where it’s not ALL growling and screaming!). The albums that I’ll be recommending are merely those that I would buy myself and which you’ll be hearing played on my shows on Rock Radio NI.
