2 stars RPI?

A whole bulk of bands have been thrown in this category by now. At least, with the Italian symph category, one could expect what he was going to listen to.

Now, the casual (and not only) fan who is looking for references on PA will find this band under the melting pot umbrella of "RPI". And might be disappointed (or not, it depends). Actually, this band should be featured in the prog folk genre.

The instruments that are used, the type of vocals (excellent during "Le Pierre Di Dunwich") are totally relating to some medieval and ancient times, totally belonging to the prog folk description.

I prefer this album than their previous one. "Il Chiarore?" offers some diversified music (even upbeat for "L' Incontro") and excellent musicianship. Some songs though really sound mellow ("Viaggio Di Wesakaycak") and could have been skipped from this offering.

Some Eastern feel can be smelt with "Yetima" but frankly this one is a poor track: one could have imagined a bit more depth, but it won't be reached. I would understand that true lovers of the medieval style should like this album.

It offers sufficient facets, fine female vocals ("Izanami E Izanagi") and great musicianship. Only song writing is a bit of a left down. Few moments of exception, little expression. There are some atmospheric and nice ambient parts available like "Rivalsa Di Aki-Gahuk" but these are too scarce to rate this work higher than two stars. Finally it's the same verdict as their debut.
