Aoeria and their 2nd released CD, “Praise to All You Hear,” spins a collective mix of first rate Alternative Rock music. Frank Giliberti, who is the creative mind behind this album, is not only a singer/songwriter but plays the guitar, bass, and drums on the CD as well and as an added bonus, a guest spot from talented drummer Martin Atkins adds to the mix. Opening up the CD, “Dreams Fall Away,” hooks you in as the rocking beats bristles around the gripping vocals. Taking a mellower tone, the song, “Snow Drift,” grooves with a smooth free flowing feel as the rhythmic drums keeps a strong and solid beat. Another track, “All for You,” has an edgy rocking guitar that shreds some awesome power chords to the strong and powerful lyrics. If you like Smashing Pumpkins or Queens of The Stone Age, then you will really enjoy the outstanding songs on the album, “Praise to All You Hear.”

Aoeria's new album Praise to All You Hear is out now!
Praise to All You Hear is Aoeria's 2nd album of 12 exploratory songs with introspective lyrics and melodious guitars, crashing drums, languid bass. Recorded and performed mostly by New York songwriter Frank Giliberti, who plays guitar, bass, drums, and sings, with drumming by Martin Atkins of PiL, NIN, Killing Joke, Pigface, and more, on The Abyss, and Ryan Egan on bass for Broken Promises.
Mp3s are up at CdBaby, Amazon, iTunes, and more. You can order the CD/DVD set from Amazon and it will be coming to CdBaby soon as well as our newly redesigned site at aoeria.com that is in progress. This album has been a real labor of love. We went over everything until it was just how we wanted and we are happy to share it you in higher quality sound then we've ever had before. The DVD has 24bit 96khz and 48khz streams, as well as CD(16 bit 44.1khz) so you can hear the extra range of tone that's closer to what it sounded like in the room when we played it. That's what Aoeria goes for, to make sounds that are descriptive and so vivid you can touch them. Most of the sounds are recorded live, with a few spacial effects added in to bring the sound we hear, which is without limits, for you to hear. The CD/DVD as features Frank's photography and the DVD has a slides arranged to the songs.

Here's some additional info about the album and the band
Aoeria (A-or-ee-uh) is an independent positive melodic rock band that creates songs from heavy riffs to acoustically strummed odes from the Long Island/New York City area. Singer, guitarist and songwriter Frank Giliberti plays solo acoustic shows with connective energy. On the albums he plays the bass and drums too, with a live band on tap if needed, though Frank knows how to be powerful with just a voice and acoustic guitar. Aoeria's newly released second album, Praise to All You Hear is now making waves and their first album Waterwheel has gathered more than 1,100 fans on Jango Internet radio and over 36,000 views of Youtube for previews and videos that feature photography slides made by Frank. For more than 12 years he has played in and recorded NY-area bands, and with Aoeria he has culminated a unique writing style and sound featuring intense guitar rock, introspective lyrics and melodic tunes that are made to register directly with the listener. The new album also has a guest spot from Martin Atkins, who was played with PiL, Nine Inch Nails, Killing Joke, and more. Frank is currently playing solo acoustic shows as Aoeria in the NY and East Coast area which has allowed him to expand on the vibe of the songs by feeding off the energy in the crowd with improvisation and jamming to spread the melodies and tunes through the air.

Aoeria and their album "Waterwheel" spin a collection of heavy, gritty, yet straightforward collection of Alternative Rock songs. The opener, "Apocrypha" begins with an exotic explosion of drums and guitars before mellowing down to follow a steady bass line with strong and solid vocals. "Wonder" is more of a relaxed song, at least at first, as it focuses on guitar riffs and reflective vocals before sonic excitement takes over. In "Imminent" we find enlivened drums and guitars keeping up a quick pace in a real rocker of a song. This album is one that harks back to the days when Alternative music was filled with fervent guitars and powerful drumming, while still having its own completely unique feel to it. Fans of Smashing Pumpkins material and similar music should check out Aoeria's "Waterwheel."

Aoeria took photos while making Waterwheel which became the artwork for the the album, the DVD also features montages/videos for each song using different photos to follow the changes in the songs, and possibly to give some kind of vague bizarre narrative portrayal.
Unreleased Song: We would like to release this previously unheard song recorded while Waterwheel was made, it wasn't included because we felt the CD was complete, but if you listen all the way through on the DVD it will play, and it's also accessible from hidden link's on the cherub's light switch in the song menu! The song can be referred to as "Disenchanted" but thats really the name of a much earlier version with different lyrics. For a download link sign up for the Aoeria news list aoeria.fanbridge.com
The DVD has even higher definition sound than CD (24bit 48khz- more analog goodness from the master tapes!!!) and video/photo montage's for each of the 10 songs.
