Born and raised in Italy, he began playing at the age of 12 and since then, his love for the instrument has never ceased to inspire him and push the boundaries of instrumental music. With a vast session and live experience, he has toured across Europe along with bands such as Decapitated, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Suffocation, Nile, Destruction, and others.
Since 2005, he has been teaching guitar, bass and music production at his studio, public masterclasses or online, with the recent addition of Bandhappy (www.bandhappy.com/profile/francescofiligoi) to his teaching channels.
As a solo artist, he appears on many projects as guest/session player, and produces bands at his own studio.
Influenced by artists such as Jason Becker, Guthrie Govan, Frank Gambale and many others, he's now working on the Abiogenesis debut album, which will see the light in 2013.
"The adjustable strap makes all the difference compared to the mountain of hair bands I've used in the past, it works as advertised and then some! Simple but incredibly useful product, expecially during crucial recording sessions."
