Hypersonic formed in 2006 by Salvatore Grasso and Emanuele Gangemi. After a couple of weeks, the line-up stabilized with the arrival of Maria Rita Randazzo on vocals, Francesco Testai on keyboards and Giuseppe Carciotto on bass. The result of their music is a perfect combination of powerful melodies and heavy metal. Various circumstances lead after the exit of Maria Rita and Giuseppe, promptly replaced by Vera Romeo (vocals) and Francesco Caruso (bass). The band in 2007 made his first demo (“Demo 2007”) containing the first pieces composed by the combo Grasso-Gangemi. Nextly, Hypersonic separate themselves from the singer Vera Romeo and welcome to beautiful and powerful voice of the new singer Alessia Rapisarda. In early 2008 the band released their first EP entitled “Inspiration Is transpiration”, receiving good responses from magazines and various radio promotion.
In the months following Francesco Testai leave the band for personal reasons and as far away from the project. Is readily replaced by keyboarder Dario Caruso (Francesco’s brother) and finally stabilizes the line-up, creating numerous live shows and participating in festivals.
