In September 2004, together with classmates Sebastiano Benatti and Tommaso Mangione, he discovers metal and progressive. He later joins Antares and with the new band he began to explore and appreciate new sonorities and, influenced by great contemporaries bass players, he decides to buy his first 6-string bass guitar.
