Luca Di Gennaro says: “The day has come! I’m happy to present you Chasing Next, the first single taken from (and the actual opener of) my new solo album The 2nd Coming.

When writing this I had a sense of future and motion, something like a spaceship flying through planets or an X-Wing on the surface of the Death Star (if you don’t know what I am talking about, close this post and go see Star Wars!). Using lots and lots of synthesizers helped me bringing this idea to life.

Luca Di Gennaro is an italian multi-instrumentalist based from Napoli and is best known for being one of the founding members, keyboard player and mastermind of the Progressive Metal act Soul Secret, with which he has released five albums as of today, as composer, arranger, lyricist and producer. He has also collaborated with bands like Subsignal, Seven Steps To The Green Door and TDW. In addition, he is a sound designer and engineer, and his work was featured on the official Moog website in March 2021. He also works as a composer in different fields including video games, which he loves playing and were fundamental for his tastes in music. He loves participating in national Global Game Jams, where he won the “Best Soundtrack” prize for several years in a row. His musical style is incorporating a huge amount of influences, including Tony Banks, Keith Emerson, Vangelis, Ozric Tentacles, Infected Mushroom just to name a few.

He has no bias about musical genres and his songs really shows that. “The 2nd Coming,” which is the name of his first instrumental solo album about to be released, is a journey between classical Progressive Rock, Psychedelic soundscapes, Electronic music, Metal, Orchestral, Trance, Latin, Ambient and much more. Luca is joined by some friends embarking on this adventure. Worldwide renowned video game composer David Wise (Donkey Kong Country, Battletoads etc.) joined the team with an emotional sax solo on one of the softer songs, rhythm master Alfonso Mocerino played acoustic drums on the whole album, Maria Barbieri, Stefano Festinese and Frank Cavezza gave their amazing contributions with blazing solos on the title track.

The 2nd Coming” will be released on January 14, 2022 under Finnish record label Lion Music. It will be available both in digital and in digipak format. You can preorder the album following this link: http://www.lionmusic.com/shop/D/DiGennaro.html
