The subjective and artistic fulfillment always came first for the members of Maestrick, the brazilian prog rock/metal band. Cultural relevance versus the market tendencies.
When you can align this with the economic incentive coming from the market, surely one has the best configuration for the production and diffusion of a musical project.
This is the case of Maestrick that, on May 23rd, has just released its new album, “Espresso Della Vita: Solare”, by the biggest label of the genre in Japan and one of the most important in the world, Marquee/Avalon.
“Espresso Della Vita: Solare” is the successor of the acclaimed debut album, “Unpuzzle!”, and the EP “The Trick Side Of Some Songs” that included new versions that Maestrick did for classics of Beatles, Yes, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Queen and Rainbow. “Espresso Della Vita: Solare” is the first part of a conceptual album that makes an observation of the human life by the perspective of a train trip. The album was produced by Adair Daufembach (Tony Macalpine, Hibria, Hangar) that was also responsible for recording all the guitars of the album.
“Espresso Della Vita: Solare” brings the tracks “Origami”, “I a.m. Living”, “Rooster Race”, “Daily View”, “Water Birds”, “Keep Trying”, “The Seed”, “Far West”, “Across The River”, “Penitência”, “Hijos De La Tierra” and “Trainsition”. The japanese version also brings an exclusive bonus track, “The Creation”.
In Brazil, “Espresso Della Vita: Solare” will be released on June 28th during a closed event for journalists only at Central Panelaço in São Paulo. Two official release shows, one electric and one acoustic, will also be announced soon as part of the releases schedule.
Maestrick is currently formed by Fabio Caldeira (vocal/piano), Heitor Matos (drums), Renato Montanha (bass) and Neemias Teixeira (keyboards).
