Fabio Cuomo is a solo project from Italy that plays a mixture of experimental, ambient and drone and this is a review of his 2015 album "La Deriva Del Tutto" which was released by taxi Driver Records.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album along with some experimental and avant garde sounds and after a few seconds pianos also make their presence known on the recording along with some distorted drones also being utilized at times and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Elements of ambient can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording giving the songs more of an atmospheric style and after awhile bass guitars make their presence known on the recording and as the album progresses clean singing vocals can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when electric guitars are utilized they bring in a touch of black metal and the music also starts bringing in more of a sci fi style atmosphere and programmed beats are also added onto the second track and towards the end of the recording a brief use of melodic post metal guitar leads can be heard.
Fabio Cuomo takes ambient, experimental and drone and also adds in a touch of metal from his other products to create a recording that is mostly instrumental while also being very original at the same time and the production has a very dark sound to it.
In my opinion Fabio Cuomo is a very great sounding mixture of experimental, ambient and drone and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Bene Gessent". 8 out of 10.
