ZUFFANTI – La Quarta Vittima

* Official Release Date: January 15, 2014 *

Early this coming year, progressive rock fans will be delighted with the release of the highly-anticipated new Fabio Zuffanti project, entitled "La Quarta Vittima" ("The Fourth Victim"). The year (2014) marks the twentieth year of musical performance for Fabio, so he has constructed a modern masterpiece whose magnificence lies in being the sum of the unique amalgam of his diverse experiences (most noteably with Finisterre, Maschera Di Cera, Quadraphonic and Hostsonaten, as well as numerous well-received solo albums and projects). "La Quarta Vittima" is an album of modern progressive rock gems, encompassing elements of symphonic, dark, jazz, hard rock, electronic and psychedelic, presented in a unique musical kaleidoscope.

The album will contain seven powerful and labyrinthine songs performed by ZUFFANTI – a group of highly-talented musicians whose experiences run the gammut. The concept for the album was inspired by "The Mirror in the Mirror": a book of gothic and surreal tales, written by Michael Ende.

With this stunning new album, the legendary Italian progressive bass maestro and extraordinary composer has created what is sure to be hailed by many as one of the most important works of modern progressive rock. It is an effort destined to once again elevate Italian Prog back into the limelight, at the forefront of appreciative audiences around the world.

"La quarta vittima" has been recorded at Hillary studio in Genoa by talentuous sound engineer Rossano "Rox" Villa and will be released on January 15, 2014, by AMS Records, currently, the most important and active record label dedicated to Italian Prog.
