3 stars This Italian band is rooted in 1985, this album is from 1999 and features the trio Claudio Nigris (keyboards and orchestrations), Katya Sanna (vocals) and Alessandro Vitanza (drums) along guest musicians on bass, violin, Gaelic harp, trombone and acoustic - and electric guitar. The CD starts with a bombastic choir and metal guitar in the vein of Steve Vai, then a slow rhythm featuring a blend of choir, trombone, sparkling keyboards and fiery electric guitar. The music turns more and more into ominous, the thunderous guitarplay sounds like a heavy Alex Lifeson! The final part from the second track contains Celtic harp, this folky element returns frequently in the next songs. This makes the music not only very captivating but also less accessible, this progrock is far from mainstream: the one moment you are headbanging on metal guitar riffs, the other moment you dream away with Celtic harp or Hurdy-Gurdy violin. Sometimes I trace elements from Tale Cue (but this female singer sound more powerful and stable) and progmetal band Rhapsody but in general Dunwich sounds like .. Dunwich, another great band from Italy, FORZA ITALIA!
