4 stars Three Monks is an Italian trio based in Arezzo put assembled by veteran keyboardist Paolo Lazzeri, a musician active in the early 70's prog scene making his return with this new band. Bassist Bozzi is another player who started his musical career when art rock was in fashion first time around, while the slightly younger drummers Bichi and Cuseri take turns in being the third monk in the monastery. "Neogothic Progressive Toccatas" is the initial effort by these cloister inspired musicians, and was released on bassist Bozzi's own label Drycastle Records in 2010.

If you like the organ and love the pipe organ - or vice versa - Three Monks have crafted a CD you have to investigate. If not for any other reason than for it's rather unique nature, to my knowledge the number of progressive rock albums with a pipe organ as the main instrument makes for a very limited selection. In this case bass, drums and the pipe organ combine neatly to create majestic, dramatic and dark musical landscapes of an impressive nature, with a vast array of subtle and finer details to discover as one gets more familiar with this creation.
