3 stars Although FILORITMIA have been rather lately introduced to the prog audience,they're not a new band around.They were formed in Milan by keyboardist Angelo D'Ariano, drummer Antonio Mazzucchelli and singer Giorgio Mele in 1993.It wasn't until 1997 when they secured a stable line-up with the addition of guitarist Roberto Riccardi and bassist Matteo Scarparo. FILORITMIA toured and performed live in furious rhythms and 2000 sees the band releasing their self-titled debut as a private press.

It is a great feeling to see a band producing rock music in a trully artistic point of view with so many influences and different styles.The ten tracks of this album are varied and range from complex, almost jazzy progressive rock and straight heavy rock to keyboard-driven instrumental and ballad-like passages.Unlike many of their compatriots, who try to recapture the 70's essence of Italian progressive rock, FILORITMIA leave the past behind, filtering their influences, and present some modern progressive rock music.Sometimes theatrical,sometimes heavy and sometimes adventuruous, ''Filoritmia'' is based on the very tight yet complex rhythm section,the strong guitar work of Riccardi and the sensitive piano/driving organ of D'Ariano.Really hard to compare with a specific band.Sounds and influences' sources start from 70's classic rock and end-up in both modern progressive rock and heavy rock.A wonderful listening and a decent start for this unknown band,heading mainly to anyone who likes the modern side of prog blended with classic rock elements and tight musicianship.Judge by yourself by giving FILORITMIA a chance.
