4 stars Coming from Italy's classy ne-prog scene, Nodo gordiano has recently recorded a curiously enigmatic and powerfuly exuberant album called flektogon. This one can be perceived as a conceptual album about the mystico-rational discoverings of old alchemists. The concept is all about the occult and the practical symbolism. Nodo Gordiano's proggy hard rockin songs combined to classical motifs and weird experiments deliver convincing musical metaphors of the epiphanic-magical universe of the ancients. The album opens with some religious-highly spiritual chants to pursue on high-energy atonal rockin sequences. The delicate-lyrical parts of the singer punctuate the ensemble with haunted and fragile melodic touches. The two chapters of Ozimandias represent the highlight and most representative-idiosyncrasic aspects of the album: an inspired combination between classical-suspensful-avant garde orchestrations / experiments and bombastic heavy fuzzed out rockin leads. To sum up things, flektogon is a brilliant, colorful and difficult album that will ravish fans of early Italian classics (Osanna, Museo Rosenbach...) and those who like the most challenging tendances of neo-prog rock.
