Italian visionary ALBERTO RIGONI, a dedicated composer and addicted to bass guitar, never stops being creative.

Also being bass player in the bands Bad As (Metal) and The Italians (‚Britalian' Pop Rock), the technically accomplished and equally soulful string virtuoso gains rapidly audience in the international music scene for inventive and atmospheric genre-crossing compositions.

ALBERTO RIGONI paints alluring INSTRUMENTAL HEAVY PROGRESSIVE soundscapes comprehensible to wide varieties of listeners.

ALBERTO RIGONI was also a member of the progressive band Twinspirits, which released three albums.

Famous musicians like Gavin Harrison joined his solo project. Kevin Moore, ex Dream Theater keyboardist, participated in 2012 on the 'Three Wise Monkeys' album. Busy ALBERTO RIGONI is also co-producer of the Vivaldi Metal project and bassist of Kim Bingham.

The new and 8th solo album with the well framing title "Prog Injection" shows the refined art of the Italian in absolute perfection.

Pre-orders of "Prog Injection" are already possible on Bandcamp.

Passion connects:
Jeff Hughell, bassist in Six Feet Under, is featured in the fourth song "Death Stick" as a special guest.

ALBERTO RIGONI comments on the background of this cooperation:
"I first met Jeff at Warwick in Germany a couple of years ago. We got along really well and became friends. In 2017 we introduced and co-starred the 'Bassists Alliance Project', releasing their first album, 'Crush', which features top bass players. That's why I like to invite Jeff as a guest for 'Death Stick'."

Established drummer Thomas Lang shows his extensive skills on the kit. He is also well known for his collaboration with music greats such as Peter Gabriel, Paul Gilbert, Glenn Hughes etc.

Alessandro Bertoni provides many atmospheric moments on the keys. Listeners already know his enormously multi-faceted art by participating at musicians like Ric Fierabracci, Craig Blundell and Brett Garsed.

For "Prog Injection" the playful maestro has successfully completed a special Fundraising Campaign – 20% of the target sum has already been donated to the Italian Lega del Filo d'Oro Association for a charitable purpose.
