Biography

GERMINALE is a band from Pisa, the city of the leaning tower in Tuscany (Italy); it was born in 1991 as a cover band, playing famous songs of Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Genesis (a complete version of “Supper’s Ready” from “Foxtrot”!).
First line-up was formed by three kids from the same high school: Marco Masoni (voice; bass, acoustic guitars), Saverio Barsali (electric and classical guitar), Gabriele Guidi (Keyboards) and two Marco’s old friends: Alessandro Toniolo (flute, voice) and Matteo Amoroso (drums).

Successively the drummer decided, because of his musical taste and lack of time, to play only with his metal band (prog-metal at the moment) “Athena” ; in spite of that he helped the band in concerts, sometimes playing together with another drummer.
In January 1993, when Gabriele found a “permanent” drummer in the jazz- player David Vecchioni, the band decided to make a record out of the music they created in 1992; after a month and a half in a studio the result was “Germinale” (Mellow Records - MMP 214), the first CD published in June 1994 by Mauro Moroni (a collector of progressive music from the whole world) and Ciro Perrino (famous new-age musician) for the Mellow Records in Sanremo (Im). Principal tracks: “Il Mago”, “Soffi Sonori”, “La Strega”, “Germinale”. Even if the band was at its first chance and practically unknown, the record had good results of sale and reviews in France, Canada, Japan, Korea, U.S.A. and Italy.
