Short biographic notes about Simone Casagrande.
Hewas born in Soncino, anancient village in Northern Italy on June the 20th 1973. Since the childhood hehad been interested in playing musical instruments, but until the age of 13 he didn’t begin to play any.
His music teacher at the middles chool was used toplay:
”The final countdown” from the band “Europe” on the accordion. He really liked that song. His father is an accordionist, so he asked him to teach him how to play it. He practised the accordion for about two years, learning some kind of waltz, too. In the meantime some of hispeers begun listening to metal bands. A couple of them were living closer and listening at extreme volume their favourite songs. He got interested and went to his neighbours asking to borrow a music-cassette.

He chose: “The number of the Beast” by Iron Maiden and “Ride the lightning” of Metallica. He loved that music immediately, and left the accordion to play theguitar. Firstly he bought a classical guitar and learned the basic techniques within a method created for the Commodore 64.
At the age of 17, he bought his first electric guitar, avery used Kaway Aquarius Custom. It was impossible to find out musicians in his surroundings to play metal, so he joined some cover bands.
With the “Nessuno” he played his first gig.
After wards here corded his first demotape, helped by a classmate who created drums and bass through his Commodore AMIGA. In that age, there were just afew ways of promotion. In the late 1993 he formed the band Castigo. They recorded a 3 tracks demotape, but after a quarrel he quitted the band. Then he joined the death metal band “Aphelion” to play this gig After a couple of years and some gigs the band decided to change its musical style and he disagreed… So he tried to play a different kind of music, but he felt it more challenging and less satisfactory. In the middle of 1999, he began with his home recording solo-project. It had been quite a disaster. So in 2003 he retired. He turned back to the classical guitar and dedicated himself to it completely, selling part of his electric instrumentation.
Five years later, he changed his mind again, but he didn’t want to make the same previous mistakes. Registering on the Facebook network he got in touch with old friends, members of the “Aphelion” band. Talking with them about his desire to record again some tracks he was surprised to understand they wished to help him… and that’s it.
His first homonymous full-length album will be released on October 2020 by French Soman Records.
