ifsounds Founder Dario Lastella Releases Mela Rossa A Companion Novel To The Album Red Apple

On November 6th, 2012 ifsounds releases the ambitious concept album the Red Apple just 40 days prior to the real possibility of Armageddon as predicted by the Mayans.

For over a 1,000 years, many people around the world including Scientists feared of a global catastrophe predicted by the Mayans, this fear which could end the human race is always with us.

Dario Lastella from the Italian progressive rock band ifsounds wrote a concept album and a novel inspired by a global madness scenario. “Mela Rossa” is a choral novel which describes the four different corners of the world during the last days of a fatal 2012: Italy, Argentina, Mongolia, and the USA.

According to Dario, The novel is mainly about human feelings and behavior and about the management of the power. What is true and what is false? Who can we trust? Who could “ride the gravy train” of an end-of-the-world scenario? Does the threat come from the outer space? Are they the aliens? Or are we the real threat for the human race?

In 2017 Dario’s novel Mela Rossa, the companion to the album Red Apple is published in Italian by Planet Book.

One Love! Music for Relief Release Date Announced

One Love… Music for Relief COVER by Ed Unitsky(2)

Melodic Revolution Records has brought together a collection of the best musicians from around the world to participate in the charity release “One Love! Music for Relief” which will be made available on September 9th 2016 via There is Hope Records a charity sub-label of Melodic Revolution Records.

Melodic Revolution Records strives to not only promote and release creative works of music by many of the best up and coming artists, but to also help those in need in our community and around the globe. The music donated will help raise money for the recent events in Baton Rouge Louisiana which has experienced catastrophic flooding and the devastating earthquake that struck Amatrice , and surrounding communities in the central region of Italy.

We were gratified by the outpouring of support from the music community. When we put forth a call to action for track donations to support – One Love! Music for Relief, t he immediate reaction from the musicians was “Yes we want to help anyway we can!” After the official announcement of One Love! Music for Relief, many more artists reached out in wanting to lend their support and the result is a digital album that has almost 3 hours of music with 30+ artists.

Our hope is that this release will not only raise some of the much needed money to help the survivors of these tragedies and their families, we also hope to continue to focus awareness on the human aspect of our existence long after the fickle media cycle has moved on. Yes there are natural disasters, unfortunately there is no short supply of these, but it is how we humans come together that is the true miracle of our existence. We cannot let these events S fall off our radar, we must continue to support our fellow humans as they begin to rebuild their lives. So yes the earthquake in Central Italy and catastrophic flooding in Louisiana have abated, but now the road to rebuilding has begun and we know that support will be needed for some time to come, There is Hope Records wants to ensure that support continues.

Music can be purchased at:

We would like to encourage everyone to help promote this project on social media and those with a website we encourage to add a link or embed the player on your site.
Thank you!
