Luca Sellitto: The Voice Within

Neo-Classical Power Metal
3.5/5.0

Taking a break from his band Stamina, guitarist Luca Sellitto arrives with his first solo album, The Voice Within, on the Pride & Joy Music label. The album features several guest musicians, including three vocalists with Goran Edman, Henrik Brockmann, and Rob Lundgren.

There's little to say about The Voice Within. First, it's a short album, eight songs over 34 minutes, barely a long player, with five lyric songs and three instrumentals. If you recall Stamina's genre and Sellitto's guitar style, Sellitto delivers, essentially, melodic power metal with his neo-classical fret fireworks at the forefront. As for the vocalists, I mostly favored Brockmann's melodic style in the catchy power metal rocker, What If. Rob Lungren from the band The Mentalist was too much screeching screamo for me, sounding like fingernails raping a chalkboard. Mostly, I found myself enjoying Sellitto's instrumental compositions, especially favoring Tearful Goodbye and its not-so neo-classical guitar work. In the end, Luca Sellitto should consider his The Voice Within a fine accomplishment for a first solo album, and fans of neo-classical guitar-driven power metal will enjoy this album.
