3 stars This is another out of many ISP band who only release done album and then disappeared. This disease is stronger than the "A N1H1" virus. It killed an enormous lot of very good Italian bands without known reasons.

"De De Lind" plays a heavy symphonic rock which is appealing but not superb as some others of their countrymen have produced. Of course, I'm referring to "la crème de la crème" and it is obvious that this band doesn't play in the same division.

Still, the vocals are well achieved and smooth; fluting is subtle but can develop a more "angry" angle at times like during "Paura Del Niente" which is a highlight of sweetness and harmony.

Same sort of feeling applies with "Smarrimento". The instrumental intro (flute again) is such a fine musical moment (at times reminding the great Tull of course). The remaining second half is more of a folkish affair than symphonic Italian prog; but pleasant indeed. We'll even get some truly heavy notes to close this good track.

It is true to say that this album lacks of great inspiration and that passion sounds to be alien to most of songs featured ("Cimitero Di Guerra"). This album is a good ISP effort, but no more. Fans of the genre (to which I certainly belong) might feel somewhat disappointed but by no means disillusioned.

There are often some great instrumental passages that save the bill and bring this album to a good level but I'm missing some grandeur, some definite and passionate flavour which is genuine to the genre.

A good album. Three stars.
