3 stars This Italian five piece band was founded in the early Nineties, in 2000 they released their eponymous debut album but not until 2009 Filoritmia came up with this successor entitled Passagi.

In general the sound is harder-edged and compelling progrock. Although the keyboards are tastefully and varied (powerful Hammond organ, fat synthesizer flights and sparkling piano runs) the focus in on the heavy guitar work: from raw guitar intro's to lots of fiery and biting solos, often in captivating interplay with the piano (reminding me of other interesting new Italian formation VIII Strada). In the final composition Manifesto I notice a subtle blend of Deep Purple's classic Smoke On The Water, no coincidence! We can also enjoy some more mellow tracks and parts like the alternating and exciting Senza Sale and the bluesy L'Uomo Che Torna (intricate atmosphere with inspired Italian vocals). But after 65 minutes I conclude that on this new Filoritmia album it's mainly harder-edged prog, layered with powerful land heavy guitar work. I needed a few listening sessions to get into this CD but then I started to appreciate it more and more.

In 2000 their first, in 2009 their second, in 2018 their third?

My rating: 3,5 star.
