5 stars La Maschera Di Cera is a great band from Italy and their new album S.E.I. brings nothing less than epic prog music.

The album begins with Il Tempo Millionaire and it's an over 20 minute epic which begins with heavy and grand distorted bass and Hammond and flows into relaxing sounds of acoustic guitars, mellotrons, synths and flutes with some great sax moments. As the song goes forward it delivers various mood changes and it's all combined perfectly. When epics are composed the emotional world sometimes wanders on the verge of debauchery, the instrumental excursions are sometimes impeded in epic overload but this is exactly where the strength of La Maschera Di Cera lie, in their entirety the peaces are always convincing and the band can turn the corner at exactly the right moment and this is one of the reasons why this album is a masterpiece.

The three tracks on the album are very complex music pieces, combining compact, dark moments with an atmospheric feel. They deliver various styles of prog from symphonic, jazz to heavy all followed by great keyboard work, rhythmic patterns, and powerful distorted bass that makes up for the absence of the electric guitar.

This is one of the best releases of 2020.
