Persistent Visions’ is the debut Ep by Indie Place, to be released on September 18th via Heavy Load – Freemood records and Tanzan Music Publishing.
80’s hard rock and classic heavy metal are the fuel that feeds the music made by Indie Place, a project created in 2016 by guitarist Gianfranco Previ, who wrote music, lyrics and produced the record.
As you may hear on first single ‘Master of Ghosts’, the Ep is influenced by the sound of bands like Def Leppard, Dokken and Queensryche, and a
cover of Out of Control from ’81 ‘Denim and Leather’ album by Saxon is on the record’s tracklist as a tribute to the english band and the whole NWOBHM scene.
The classic sound is combined with the modern and expressive vocals by US singer Aiden who recorded his performance at the Studio Pros in
Los Angeles along with the rythmic session.
All the guitars are played by Previ and the additional keyboards and backing vocals have been recorded by musicians Eric Castiglia and Marco Cossu.
The lyrics are about a person who is facing mental disorder, visions and distortion of reality, that’s the main theme of Persistent Visions.
