Additional informationfrom Al Candello (26.07.2005):
Created in November 2004 by guitarist Al Candello and vocalist Ryan Metzger, ASPIRE now features five of the most gifted musicians in New York metal scene. Their first release, the EP "All Ahead" was very warmly received by both fans and fellow musicians and the title track from it (also available on "Quest Eternal") was selected for Promo CD of the prestigious ProgPower USA VI Music Festival. Now with their first album released and full line-up completed, ASPIRE's live performances draw the fans from all over New York and band's first tour is planned for the autumn of 2005.
ASPIRE's music has if s roots in European Power Metal, classic hard rock and blues and, certainly, classical music. All band members have received some form of classical training in addition to playing in several different bands before. Their stage appearance compliments the music, creating the theater of power and melody.
As of summer 2005 ASPIRE is regularly performing live on various stages in New York, is working on the material for their next album and preparing for the "Quest Eternal" tour.
