The project SOLISIA started in 2006 by a casual meeting between keyboards player Wilson Di Geso and the drummer Marcantonio Quinto; the line-up became complete very soon by singer Marilena Stigliano and by Gianluca Quinto as guitar player.
United by their common passion for music, the four musicians started to wrote their own songs in a makeshift rehearsal room, creating four new tunes; When they deiced it was time to record a demo CD, the band needed a bass player, they asked Andrea Arcangeli, bassist of the Italian prog band DGM and Heavy band EVIDENCE, to join the project.
In March of 2007 SOLISIA recorded their first demo tape, “The Film of My Life”, a
prog/symphonic work which the main team is about life.
In June of the same year the band signed a deal with the Italian “Inferno Agency” for a better promotion on the metal scene and after few months the label Underground Symphony decided to produce the first studio album of the band.
In October 2009 SOLISIA signed the deal with the Italian label and in November they started the recording sessions at Fear Studios for their first full-lenght titled “Ordinary Fate”.
The album was released in early 2010. The band called the French artist Alexandra V Bach (Kamelot, Adagio, Operatika and many more) to take care about the artwork of the album.
After the release of the album the band played many gigs around Italy and took part to one of the biggest fest in Italy, Agglutination Metal Fest spreading their music to a more huge public.
In early 2011 the band splits from Marilena and called behind the microphone Elie Syrelia(Eleonora Tufarolo).
SOLISIA are now ready to record the second album and with Elie the band found a new energy
The result is what people can ear on the new “UniverSeasonS”.
