Prog Reviewer
4 stars BARROCK is a family band from Italy. "Oxian" is a very delicated album, never bombastic, full of medieval feeling. Altough mostly instrumental (standing out the keyboards), there are two female singers with very nice and almost operatic voices. It seems to be influences from the most melodic Italian prog bands (elegance and sudden rythmical changes) and, sometimes, a little bit of RENAISSANCE.

The medieval atmosphere becames dense and even gloomy at some tracks ("Il Tempio" and "Il Mondo Di Oxian"), but sweetness and beauty are the main tunes along the whole album. "Il Vampiro" is my favorite and the last song, "Guerra!", the most energetic -but even melodic-. Very good album, indeed.
