Joe Bergamini


This is great progressive instrumental rock music, reminiscent of the work by Dream Theatre: the songs are all riff-driven and are heavy on keyboards which is complimented by good guitar solos. The progressive aspect of the music is quite experimental, and sometimes moves into the realm of heavy metal and jazz. The drum work by Joe Bergamini is the highlight of this album, and for drummers there is a book (Contemporary Drumming Styles) and a play-along version of this album is in the works. The guitars and keyboards are courtesy of Zak Rizvi and provide a great compliment to Bergamini's drumming. This is definitely worth checking out if you're into progressive or instrumental music.
