Clockwork is a musical project started in 2017 by keyboard player and composer Lorenzo Masiero who got in touch with drummer Gianluca Capelli to give life to the characters of the homonymous book and bring them into a metal opera. Together they started selecting the right artists to fit the different roles. Fabio Brunetti joined the band to cover one of the 6 voices (4 residents plus 2 guests) that will be displayed in the debut album. Paolo Taurino is the second singer to join the project followed by Francesca Trevisan and Rossella Moscatello to complete the line up together with Luigi Riccio (bass) and Daniele Mandelli (guitar and production). While the album is still in the making, the band released the first single "Closer" with Freemood / Heavyload label.
