From that moment I begin to put my theoretical knowledge into practice changing from rock-pop, ska, punk, hard rock and hardcore to metal's music, type of music to which I remain fond for all the my career. Thanks to this artistic education my style becomes various and in some ways originals. After some approaches to different kind of bands, and numerous exhibitions, in 2004 I put up my first stable project called Cruel Face of Life with which I recorded my first full length, " False the Utopie" , at famous Italian recording studio: Fear Studio. Just "The False Utopia" allows me to begin to bring my ideas to an international level. In 2006 I joined the Lacerater, a brutal death metal band already present in the scene from some years. With Lacerater I recorded the ep "Nessun Urlo nell'Ombra" that had incredible reviews from around the world and for that I had the possibility to performed in a long list of live in Italy and other countries. Thanks to these productions I collected a considerable numbers of positive reviews from all the globe and this prompted me to improve my performances. For this reason, In the same time, I enjoined the school MMI (Modern Music Institute) of Bologna where Jerry Galavotti teach me then on genres of music until now unknown to me. All of it is examined from lessons and seminaries made with the greatest drummers in circulation (Simon Philips, Steve Smith, Jojo Mayer, George Kollias etc.) Actually my target is finish the studies to become a master. In the meantime, thanks my participation in the Furyu (experimental metalprog) and in the Deathwork (thrash/death old school), I recorded a full lenght and ep that help me make my discography more musically varied. Sure there will future recordings, live collaborations and international exhibitions.
