Dario Montanino – The Nebo Sky Song Review

Today we are featuring another promising prog rock artist; Dario Montanino, from Canada. We have reviewed their powerful song; The Nebo Sky (feat. Marco Minnemann), along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Dario Montanino is a new promising progressive rock guitarist/artist I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about two months ago with their remarkable song; The Nebo Sky, off from their latest single with the same title, featuring with one of the most exceptional musicians of all time; Marco Minnemann. I am a big fan of Marco Minnemann for a very long time and I don’t think there’s any single person out there who doesn’t love him. He is not only a remarkable drummer but also an amazing person. Dario and Marco have collaborated on this super progressive rock project together, big respect!. Please check out the song while reading the rest of the article.

The Nebo Sky is a pure progressive rock piece, structured with the guitar partitions mostly, which is an understandable situation from a guitar player. When I look at this composition as a whole, I’d like to say that Dario Montanino -most probably- is a multi-instrumentalist as well as a composer and guitar player. First of all, I can sense that he has a huge prog-rock influence on his music along with his guitar playing, and mainly Dream Theater. You can easily tell this by listening to his guitar partitions, style, slides, bends, and sentences carefully as well as his sections, connections, and the way he builds his composition. It instantly reminded me of Metropolis Part 2 / Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence period of Dream Theater, where they were still together with their iconic drummer Mike Portnoy. Here in this example, he has taken all these influences, filtered and blended with their own ideas and came up with this story here. The main difference is that Dario has a softer, cleaner approach than them.

The song has a lot to offer for musicians, guitar players, drum players and progressive rock fans for sure. There are so many delicious ideas in the making, where guitars and drums are giving you a feeling like they are playing on a jam session. We all know how magnificent Marco Minnemann’s drumming is. This guy is one of the most talented drummers of the 21st century, who have also attended to Dream Theater’s drummer auditions back in 2011. I can easily say that they together create powerful energy. Also, there are some moments in the song where you feel like these parts sound like Marco Minnemann’s stuff. In other words, some influences from his personal projects with other exceptional guitar players such as Paul Gilbert and Guthrie Govan. Briefly, I’d be so proud of this work if I were in Dario’s shoes. Collaborating with someone like Marco Minnemann is every guitar players’ dream and The Nebo Sky will surely make him proud all his lifetime.


Technically, there’s not much to say. Everything sounds super clean, clear, easy-going, relaxing, in good harmony, very well recorded, and produced. Hands down. However, I’ve found the overall sound a little bit raw personally. It doesn’t have the atmosphere and the harmony to pull listeners into its world although everything was handled quite perfectly. Also, this was probably their personal decisions and we respect that.

When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by Dario Montanino’s understanding of music. As I have also mentioned before, he has done something which will make him and his family proud all their lives!
