2 stars An album I have been struggling with for a while. Thankfully, this is Dunwich's debut album. That means there is excuses we can use. For example Dunwich being young and inexperienced.

Dunwich is listed in the Rock Progressivo Italiano genre. But on this album, there is very little which reminds me about Rock Progressivo Italiano. Sul Monte e il Tuono is a Goth Metal album through and through, with a lot of chamber orchestra and classical music added into the mix. The music is based on the female soprano Katya Sanna's vocals.

The problem with this album is that there is far too much of her and not enough music. Dunwich has done the classic mistake on this album and overplayed their strongest card; Katya Sanna. With such a talent in your ranks, the point is to use her right and not to machine gun the soundscape with her overpowering vocals. The result is painful and almost bordering to avant-garde metal. And I do not think that was the intention here. This album is also sadly lacking any good songs too. The result is an album I would rather forget. Two stars for the efforts and the talents. Nuff said and onwards to better things.
