North Hollywood's rock trio Magnetico delivers yet another powerful release “Death Race” shortly after opening for KISS on the 4th of July, 2016 at the AVA Amphitheatre in Tuscon, Arizona. “Death Race” follows the band's highly successful debut album “Songs About The World”.
Their musical history has led them to play before audiences in the U.S., Europe, Asia and South America including a tour across the west coast supporting Steel Panther. The group has performed on both KISS Kruise V and VI along with KISS and other renowned rockers Steel Panther, Lita Ford, Kings X and Skid Row. They are now scheduled to return for the third time in a row to perform on the KISS Kruise VII in 2017.
Recently voted by L. A.'s Music Connection Magazine for the second time as one of the Top 100 Unsigned Bands in the U.S.A., Magnetico is led by guitar virtuoso, singer/songwriter and producer Rafael Moreira. Best recognized for his appearance as lead guitarist on Rock Star: INXS, Rock Star: Supernova, The Voice and American Idol to name a few, Rafael has been featured on the cover of U.S.A.'s Guitar Player Magazine (online). He has also performed with some of music’s most elite artists including Paul Stanley (KISS), Pink, Don Felder (The Eagles), Cristina Aguilera, Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) and many more.
Establishing both a tight and intense rhythm section, the band's foundation features bassist Ben White and drummer Edo Tancredi. The music of Magnetico is both powerful and inspiring and built on heavy riffs, thoughtful lyrics and strong choruses. Onstage, their concerts are intense and dynamic and display the group's musical vision and their versatility moving from heavy rock anthems to free-form improvised jams. As well, Rafael's blistering chops remind us that guitar solos are still alive and kickin' in the world of rock.
The band continues to build on their success in the U.S. and around the world. Loaded with raw talent and committed in the passion for creating and performing their music, fans can't help but be drawn into the powerful force that is Magnetico.
