The first album of Farzad Golpayegani “ONE” is an Instrumental Fusion-Metal album. Farzad has composed, performed, recorded, mastered and even has designed album cover all by himself. He personally has played 7-string electric guitar, Acoustic guitar and Bass guitar and for the percussion instruments, he has composed the notes by computer programming. No Eastern or Persian instrument has been used in entire record and all the eastern sounds and melodies are simulated and played with Acoustic guitar in an innovated tuning.
Name of the tracks are the numbers in song writer’s track-list. The reason is the importance of Instrumental music and musical concept against understanding under track name’s influence.
Although there are many difficulties for Rock and Metal Music in Iran, this album succeeded to be the first licensed album in this genre in Islamic Republic of Iran in 2002. But it faced many problems for distribution and had two years of latency and finally was released in 2004. After a while because of Rock music being banned by the authorities in Persian’s government the MP3 version of album was officially distributed free to download at Farzad’s official website.
This album is officially Free to download as MP3 files. To purchase Physical CD please visit Store page or Farzad’s store at Reverbnation.
