3 stars Italian act Plurima Mundi hails from Taranto, led by classical-influenced violin player Massimiliano Monopoli.The six-piece line-up is completed with Massimo Bozza on bass, Vincenzo Zecca on guitars, Pierfrancesco Caramia on drums and Francesco Pagliarulo on piano along with female singer Grazia Maremonti.The debut of the band was the short EP ''Atto 1'' from 2009, released through Ma.Ra.Cash Records.

The album opens with the instrumental ''Ortus confuses'', a good mix of Classical-based violin drives and piano-led Jazz/Fusion with a nice amount of energy.''Nei ricordi del tempo'' will soften things.Driven by the symphonic violin passages of Monopoli, the dreamy and crystalline vocals of Maremonti and the overall dramatic atmosphere with some great guitar and piano work, this tracks comes like cross between OUTER LIMITS and CONQUEROR.''Laboratoria 30'' is the longest and more complicated track of the EP by far, featuring a fair amount of sudden breaks and dramatic interplays, alternating between fiery and calm atmospheres and highlighted by the ethereal voice of Maremonti along with the adventurous performances on violins, piano and guitars.''Aria'' features the guest appearance of Osanna's Lino Vairetti on vocals, however the tracks is rather the weakest in here with too many vocals and confusing Funk beats among the interesting instrumental prog parts.

Plurima Mundi are definitely a band with potential.''Atto 1'' was just a door to a full-length release, which hopefully sees the light someday.Recommended to a wide spectrum of fans, including Fusion buffers, Symphonic Rock followers and Classical Music lovers.
