5 stars What can we find in an Italian band with a German name and English lyrics? The answer is excellent music, very nice melodies in an obscure neo prog style. Four long tracks showing some Genesis and Marillion (era Fish) influences and some classic Italian flavour, plenty of variations, and always emphasized the melodic line. "Red Shift" is the first theme, with lots of rythmical changes and beautiful atmospheres, including a little chaotic part a la Banco, finishing with a solemn organ. "Jethro Van Hall" is an obscure song, very interesting, but "Il Funerale Della Luna" is the highlight: despite some Marillion touches, we find again continuous changes into a wonderful melody. The last track (two in one), "Eclipse/Echoes Wave" is a very calm and soft piece, a wonderful way to close the stuff. Each time I'm going to hear a neo prog album, I have several doubts about quality, originality, etc., but I must recognize that "De' La' Tempesta..." removed many prejudices I had, and it is -beside Clepsydra's "Alone"- the best neo production I ever listened.
