Interview With Giancarlo Floridia And Timothy Gaines Of FAITHSEDGE 2019

 

 

Faithsedge was started in 2011 in Southern California by singer / songwriter Giancarlo Floridia. Giancarlo has worked with multi platinum artist / producers as Juan Croucier (Ratt), Fabrizio Grossi (Steve Vai /Alice Cooper), Jeff Pogan (Suicidal Tendencies) , Alessandro Del Vecchio (Hardline) and now has released multiple Faithsedge albums with praise among the melodic rock /metal fanbase.

 

Giancarlo has been featured in multiple online interviews around the world and magazines promoting the past few years for the Faithsedge debut (2011) and follow up to that The Answer of Insanity (2014) and Restoration (2016). With the return of the band and new album Bleed for Passion Giancarlo once again has recruited some serious hard rock powerhouses to take his vision of melodic rock / metal music / progressive to the next level.

 

 

Returning on lead guitar is former Dokken guitarist Alex De Rosso who has toured the world with Dokken sharing the stage and touring with The Scorpions, Whitesnake, Ratt, and many others. Alex De Rosso also has multiple studio works recording guitars for artist like Joseph Williams (Toto), Kelly Hansen (Foreigner) and Pamela Moore also known as Sister Mary from Queensryche’s opus concept album Operation: Mindcrime. Alex continues to write and perform in Italy and also does production and songwriting at his studio “The Cube”.

 

Also returning to the Faithsedge line up is ex-Stryper bass player Tim Gaines. Tim has multiple gold and platinum credits under his belt and the success of Stryper continuing for over 30 years. The Stryper fan base is strong as ever, releasing recent Billboard charting albums as “No More Hell To Pay” and the newly released “Fallen”. Tim’s punch and arena rock style fits in perfectly to the Faithsedge style as can be heard on the record. Tim has played bass live for artists such as Richard Marx, Bryan Duncan’s Nehosoul , Aldo Nova and his own band with Stryper guitarist Oz Fox called Sin Dizzy.

 

 

Handling the drum work is Matt Starr. Matt has done numerous tours and recordings for KISS guitar legend Ace Frehley and performed on Ace Frehley’s billboard charting at # 9 album “Space Invader” and “Spaceman” album which Matt also contributed to the vocal work alongside his drumming skills. Matt plays with the melodic rock giants Mr.Big which he has toured the world with over the past few years and released “Defying Gravity” album .

 

 

Matt’s thunderous drumming aligned with Tim Gaines bass playing is taking the Faithsedge sound to the next level.
The new album Bleed for Passion is all about bringing back the sounds from the 80’s and early 90’s with big guitars and in your face production but keeping an up to date spin on the lyrics to whats going on in the world today .

 

Line Up:

 

Giancarlo Floridia – Vocals /Guitar
Alex De Rosso – Lead Guitar
Tim Gaines – Bass
Matt Starr – Drums

Interview With Mark Allen Lanoue Of Fiction Syxx 2019

FICTION SYXX has completed work on their sophomore release, ‘The Alternate Me’!

The album follows the acclaimed debut ‘Tall Dark Secrets’, released in 2017.

 

FICTION SYXX mixes progressive hard rock with a nuance of melodic rock. The first release from this project was a way to bring a talented core of seasoned musicians together and to bring several guest artists and what came out of the effort is a solid 11 songs of progressive rock.

 

The line-up had one change for the new album – Larry Hart (King Kobra/Montrose) on bass guitar takes over for Tony “The Fretless Monster” Franklin. This release is focused more on the core than their debut release ‘Tall Dark Secrets’. There are no guest artists on this one and JK Northrup & Mark Lanoue share the lead guitar duties. Prepare for a mix of melody, harmony, soaring slide, and at times SHRED! 

 

Fiction Syxx is: Mark Allen Lanoue – Lead Vocals & Guitar JK Northrup – Guitar, B. Vocals & Production Rory Faciane – Drums Larry Hart – Bass Eric Ragno – Keyboards 

 

 

The new album picks up where the debut left off, but at the same time, dials everything up 3 notches. The musicianship, the complexities of the songs, the production and the hooks. All maximized for fan enjoyment.

 

FICTION SYXX, is the brain child of songwriter/vocalist/guitarist, Mark Allen Lanoue. But like all ideas, including musical ones, it is not just about the writing; it is about the delivery. So, after writing the first song called “Welcome to my Nightmare” for this new musical journey, Mark started talking with friend and multi-talented musician/songwriter/producer, JK Northrup (KING KOBRA, XYZ) about starting a project that would be framed around a core of members.
The album was Produced, Mixed and Mastered by JK Northrup at Alien Productions Music Studio, Carmichael CA, USA.

“A swaggering leather-clad figure, eyes, hidden under a veil of black hair and a
