Andrea Neri (IT)
Stage of Reality
Overload Guitars is proud to annunce a deal with Andrea Neri, guitarist and founder of the italian metal band Stage of Reality.
Stage of Reality is an italian Modern Groove Metal band formed in Rome late 2012. SOR's first full lenght “BREATHING MACHINES”,
realeased in 2014 characterized by a hard rock sound mixed with progressive and crossover influences, takes inspiration from two
main literary models, i.e. “Corsair Writings” by Pier Paolo Pasolini and “Animal farm” by George Orwell, to describe the lack of
humanity and the overwhelming anxiety of modern times.
In 2017 the new self-titled album is a turning point in the band’s musical research. Each one of the ten original songs in “Stage of Reality” is a raging critique to our society, dealing with specific social ssues or with some of the most obscure episodes in the Italian chronicle, and granted two porestigious collaborations make this project unique on the alternative metal scene: Blaze Bayley will perform “Warlord” and Amanda Somerville will give her voice to the only cover song of the album, “Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse.
The custom guitar realized for Andrea is a Rea Custom 6-string .
Andrea commented on his new axe:
“My REA by Overload is definitely the best guitar I’ve ever played: comfortable, fast, with great attack and always in tune!
I use to play C-Drop tuned and the woods choice really helps the sound to be sharp and aggressive even on the lowest notes, where it usually goes soft and fluffy. You must try it!
