F.E.A.S.T. is the brain child of Italian born singer and guitarist Fabri Kiareli, who got infected with the Rock’n’Roll virus at an early age when he heard The Who’s “Pinball Wizard”. Spending some of his teen years in Mexico his first musical influences came mostly from the nearby USA. Inspired by the guitar playing of Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads and Ace Frehley, Fabri teached himself how to play guitar while rocking along to the riffs of his teenage idols. The debut album “Rise” of Fabri Kiareli’s F.E.A.S.T. showcases the musical influences of its main man, ranging from straight ahead Heavy Rock anthems (“Fire And Dynamite”, “Feed The Hunger”, “(Ain’t Done) ‘Til It’s Over”) to Classic Rock power ballads (“Broken Dreams”, “Cold Hearted”) and from fast paced Metal tracks (“Win Or Lose”), to the epic masterpiece “The Meaning Of Life” and the Melodic Rock hymn “Follow The Way”, a duet with Alessandro Del Vecchio (Edge Of Forever, Eden’s Curse, Shining Line, Axe, Glenn Hughes, Bernie Marsden). While Fabri handled most of the instruments on “Rise” himself, except for the drums, he has now put together the band line-up of F.E.A.S.T., including Lukino “Luke” Ballabio (guitar), who also played the guitar solo on “(Ain’t Done) ‘Til It’s Over”, Angelo Perini (bass) and Mao Granata (drums). Together they will present the album live in Italy and beyond.
