Luke Fortini - To Search
A troubled and exciting musical journey.
At the age of 12 I was struck by listening to Live After Death by Iron
Maiden, I remember that I began to design and build a sort of guitar
with a piece of wood and iron wires, inspired by the photos of the CD
booklet Iron, precisely a photo of Adrian Smith with a black arrow
The path seems grotesque and unlikely, but for Christmas my parents
gave me a cheap electric guitar and a small amplifier, given my passion
that was being born.
From that day on, something lit up and I haven't stopped since to pick
up a guitar.
I've played a little bit of everything over the years, even commercial
I must remember a great experience, a European tour that lasted a total
of 3 years (from 2002 to 2005) with Paul Di Anno (the singer of the
first 2 Maiden albums).
The realization of 2 instrumental discs, the first Space Travel and the
second The Grand Opus, several instrumental demos.
2 albums with the metal band Hyperion, which has received very good
reviews all over the world, Dangerous Days and Into The Maelstrom.
An album called Fate Of A king and a tour in Croatia with Imago
Imperii, an epic power metal band, where I still reside as a guitarist
Finally, arrived in this strange 2020, which has kept us all closed at
home for a while, I churn out a new chapter: To Search.
