The Skinny: Born in Montebelluna (Treviso, Italy) in 1981, bass player Alberto Rigoni in 1998 founded, together with drummer Enrico Buttol, a well-known progressive-metal cover band, Ascra, performing mainly songs by Dream Theater. In 2003 he joined the emerging band Twinspirits, led by Daniele Liverani (Genius Rock Opera, Khymera, ex-Empty Tremor).

The band’s debut album The Music That Will Heal The World was released worldwide in 2007 by Finnish label Lion Music and received remarkable feedback. Besides Twinspirits, Rigoni followed a very personal artistic way, composing a solo album entitled Something Different, released by Lion Music on February 15th 2008 with worldwide distribution. At the same time Alberto shot a video of his hit song “BASSex” (working with Italian company Solingo Visual Arts) directed by Elia Cristofoli. The video was broadcast on some television networks such as RockTV.

Enter 2011 and already this year Rigoni has signed with Nightmare Records (SONY/RED Distribution) for the release of his new solo album Rebirth, Twinspirits has released an official video clip for the song “Slave to this World” and a new album entitled Legacy, and Rigoni has been endorsed by Dingwall Bass Guitars.
