3 stars Civico 23 is an unknown but competent young heavy prog band from Rome - Italy with one album issued since their formation in 2010 named Siero progressivo released at BTF records 2013. Well, this is good album for sure, energic music full of great guitar chops, hammond organ for good measure and a fantastic singer - Massimo Joe Galatone. The sound is very vintage like on the glory '70s, even the influences are from that period, Museo Rosembach mostly or Uriah Heep comes in mind or from more recent times they are similar with another italian band named Graal or with czechs Votchi. Now, the album is well balanced, there are some really solid heavy prog here, with rich instrumental parts, the guitar specially is awesome combined with more calmer moements, all melted in a typical italian feel. Pieces like Umida Cenere, Il Cavaliere Illuso, I Sette Angeli or the longest piece of the album L'Ultimo Grido Di Galeria are really really good, showing that theheavy prog scene is alive and kicking. Some spoken words apear here and there to give an almost story tell kind of album with lyrics about dragons, knights, castels and this kind of stuff. All in all I like what I've heared here on Siero progressivo, good towards great album. Definetly 3.5 stars.
