|Omschrijving||"An enthusiastic welcome to the LIFESTREAM debut,
with a mix of AOR and progressive rock, able to
combine technique and melody, sustained by sinuous
vocal lines. Respectful of the past the Lifestream
look at the new prog scene with a proud look". The
debut studio album by the Tuscan band Lifestream,
active since 2006 is titled Diary. All songs are
written, performed, produced and recorded by
Lifestream, published by Lizard Records.
This album transports the listener inside the lives
of different characters like a wind flipping
through the pages of a book. The tracks present
musical recalls suggesting a common thread, despite
being apparently disconnected from one another.
The sound is that of typical progressive rock
(synthesizers, odd time signatures, long sectioned
suites) with AOR and hard rock influences, for a
total of 8 tracks (included the emotional 15
minutes suite "Over the rippling waters") and more
than one hour of music.
A videoclip for the song “Sound of the Earth” has
been released, featuring nature-themed timelapses
by the photographer Mattia Bicchi.
The record closes with an excerpt from “E mi viene
da pensare” originally recorded by the Italian prog
band Banco del Mutuo Soccorso. This song has been
chosen both for its introspective nature and for
tribute to Francesco di Giacomo and Rodolfo Maltese
who passed away during the recording sessions.
