5 stars This young Roman band offers us his second album with guest musicians Mattias Olson (Anglagard) and Fabio Pignatelli (Goblin). We can hear influences of those two bands in the music that has an old Italian style but a modern Swedish influence including Anekdoten. From the ethereal opener, we are in a strange and dark territory with some violin and vintage mellotron. The drums patterns remind me of the classical song of Ravel "Bolero". The music is mostly instrumental with occasional English lyrics. The band enjoys building the melody slowly in a faster and louder tempo. In the second track, we can hear the piano and keyboards in a pure canterbury style. The third track instrumental starts again with a dark intro and has soundtrack atmosphere. The fourth track brings back the vocals with some jazzy excursions. "Ayida Wedo" is a little masterpiece of vintage sounds, smooth drums, delicate and beautiful keyboards tones with a King Crimson ending. The last song has an acoustic intro with that dark and intense atmosphere ending furiously in the Anglagard style. This album is another fine example of how the Italian scene can be very creative. It's like hearing the sound on the 70's in the modern age with the same songwriting quality.
