The Francesco Artusato Project


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Francesco Artusato is both a solo artist and the lead guitarist of the highly acclaimed Californian band All Shall Perish. He was born in Italy and is a product of a very musical family. He started playing saxophone at the age of 14 and switched to guitar when he was 19. After graduating Suma Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in 2006, he relocated to Los Angeles where he has been busy with recording, touring and teaching. His most notable accomplishment to date was being invited back to Boston in 2008 to perform 1st electric guitar for Vuk Kulenovic’s “Electric Symphony”, a 70 minute massive symphony, sharing the stage with such renowned musicians as Kenwood Dennard on drums (Miles Davis, Sting, Chick Corea) and conducted by Tibor Pusztai.

Chaos and the Primordial is the result of the experiences, studies, thoughts and musical moments that shaped Artusato’s sound and vision throughout these years. This album was written, produced and engineered by Artusato and mixed and mastered by Ben Cohen at Sky Blue Studios.

Artusato continues to play in All Shall Perish continuing to work with a variety of composers and songwriters on other projects. In addition to all this, he contributes material to the Guitar Messenger website with his “Technical Difficulties” column.

    Insanely talented, and awesome ideas - but on a whole it was just too much. Simply unlistenable more than a song or two, there is hardly any difference from one song to the next, and just a little TOO over the top and not enough song structure. But some outstanding guitar riffs/ideas that shouldn't be overlooked.

    He has slight similarities to Viggo Mortensen.

    Very promising stuff. Less solo-wanking and more rock would do some good ;D Still great! Keep it up.
