4)Why have you chosen to play instruments bc rich, have something special for you?
Salvatore : The B.C Rich Beast is the perfect guitar for Soul S Chains , and will be always the only one in that project….i don’t know why but i can’t see me without it … something strange, magic grin emoticon
by the way for technical aspect … the neck is very big and large and my hands are very fucking big so i can play easily all the fast riff i do when i’m singing
The humbuckers are original from the brand and sound like hell !!

7)What do you think about metal music to other countries? You see the metal scene today?
Salvatore : i think that in nowdays there are too much ” Core ” bands…just because now ” Core music ” is a ” Fashion” so … Metal music is not a fashion …is a lifestyle ..and this make me a little bit sad Also because most of those band sounds like the same..look like the same .
btw i know a lot of symphonic metal \ Progressive metal \ Death and Black Metal bands that are so fucking great
but they are covered by the ” Fashion pussyes of the moment “
don’t misunderstand me i’m very open minded ,i listen every kind of music but
i’m tired to see the same music everywhere by people that 5-10 years ago was playing a totally different music and now are changed just for get views …
8)If you could share the stage with any band or artist or band who would it be?
For my ” Extreme metal ” side …i think Anorexia Nervosa (they are disbanded)
Just because i get a lot of inspiration from them in my the last Album
For the “Ambient ” Side …. David gilmour he’s the master of psychedelia for me !!
