NORTHERN LINES come together as a band at the end of 2012, starting their activity in 2013.
The multiple outstanding Italian formation performs a special as interesting, refreshing and listenable kind of INSTRUMENTAL PROGRESSIVE FUSION ROCK.
The band consists of Cristiano Schirò on drums, Alberto Lo Bascio on guitar and Stefano Silvestri on Bass.
The three sophisticated musicians decide to give life to the project because of their necessity to have a free musical space.
Free from trending patterns, son of modern times but with roots solidly anchored in the 70s, real cultural heaven from which the three of them feel at home.
Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, but also The Aristocrats and Rush, this is their field of study and listening.
To this initial piece of the puzzle, they add a sense of humor and self-irony, playing around inside of their music, alternating revisited classic patterns (maybe in odd time signatures), with changes of tempo and style.
All of this is delivered through a sincere Hard Rock approach, without the need of too much sonic-artifacts.
It's not the kind of Prog music to be connected with the concept of Suite, but rather that of synthesis.
Guitarist Alberto Lo Bascio and drummer Cristiano Schirò came to know each other, and shortly after started collaborating, in 2008, recording three singles together.
The musical collaboration between bassist Stefano Silvestri and drummer Cristiano begun in 2010, when they started playing together in a classic rock project, recording an EP.
In May/June of 2016, NORTHERN LINES begun recording their second studio album at Music-Up Recording Studio, in Rome. It's a different approach from their first work "Farts from SETI Code", rich of comical randomness and imbued with a "playfully" mood.
Their second longplay-release finds its identity in the form of a concept album. Death is the leading theme, a death seen through the eyes of fear, a paralyzing emotion, but of surprising effect nonetheless.
"The Fearmonger" (date of release: January 2017) sees the addition of piano, synth and hammond sections, which make up the pivotal points of the creative variation from NORTHERN LINES.
