STÉPHAN FORTÉ WORKING ON INSTRUMENTAL SOLO ALBUM!

Stéphan is at the moment in studio working on the composition of his instrumental solo album.

"It's been a very long time since I wanted to do this. I've started to work on the first ideas a couple of years ago and am now spending 100% of my working time on it. So far, 7 songs are composed and today I am in the middle of the 8th one. It will be around 9 songs I guess. Musically, it's very shred, dark and neoclassical oriented. The Metal influences goes from shredders such as Cacophony (Becker and Friedman) Haji's Kitchen, Derek Taylor, Scott Stine etc..to bands like Meshuggah, Dream Theater...There's a lot of Middle Eastern, Indian and Japanese traditional music elements mixed with a classical influences, going from romantic (Chopin, Liszt, et..) to some more contemporary composers such as Bartok, Prokofiev, Messiaen, Penderecki etc...

And of course it's massively Heavy ;) My Lâg is tuned down to A, and I might now use this for Adagio as well !!!"
