4 stars Three Monks (ironically, a duo) hails from Italy and have some really different mix. In fact, it's something between the Gothic sound of Antonius Rex and the Symphonic side of Emerson, Lake & Palmer.

Three Monks is formed by the bass of Mauricio 'Bozorius' Bozzi and the organs and pipe organs of Paolo 'Julius' Lazzeri. Now, that's exactly the difference in their sound, the use of pipe organs and a big Gothic approach in their music, even when they play classical parts a la ELP. The Legend Of The Holy Circle (2013) was released by Black Widow Records in a simple Digipack, but because the album is instrumental I don't think this is a bad thing as all the info we need are there.

This is a really interesting release full of 'church' music if you like, a feeling of really being somewhere on the past in some monasterium. A really must have if you're a fan of Antonius Rex and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
