4 stars This new Italian band released a DVD after only one album, and because of this, they decided to play the complete "Zarathustra" suite of Museo Rosenbach,one of the best song coming from the Italian scene. This is a logical decision when you know that the original singer Stefano "Lupo" Galifi is with the band. What we got here is a complete new version of that song that is a symphonic prog rock epic with a playing that is rough with heavier guitar riffs and a solid rhythm section with Palo Tixi on drums. This song being inspired by the work of Nietzsche has some dark atmosphere with long instrumental passage that coexist with some lighter atmosphere with the delicate piano of Elisa Montaldo. Like i said, because the band has only one album, the 2 DVD contains the album "Zarathustra" in the act 1 of The Seoul performance and on the encore as a medley. The second disk has also some excerpts of this song, but who is going to complaint to hear that song with a modern new sound and arrangements. This second DVD is a collection of various appearance in Italy and in Nearfest in USA. The sound quality is not the best, but better than some bootlegs material. The act II of the main concert is the original songs of the band from their first album and it's in the vein of "Zarathustra", if you enjoy bands like Banco or Il Balletto Di Bronzo, you will enjoy this band.
