4 stars ''One Piece Puzzle'' was followed both by huge line-up changes and intense live activity by Profusion.Keyboardist Gionatan Caradonna, drummer Vladimer Sichinava and bassist Luca Cambi were the only stable members and by the turn of the decade guitarist Thomas Laguzzi had already joined the band, followed a couple of years later by singer Luca Latini.The band signed a contract with ProgRock Records and at the dawn of 2012 the second release ''Rewotower'' was reality.

This sophomore Profusion effort is trully excellent and in fact the music in the album is the closest thing I've heard to the artistic Rock/Metal approach of A.C.T. from Sweden.New singer Luca Latini adds a clear and catchy voice next to the frenetic, powerful and energetic musicianship of the instrumentalists, making Profusion one of the most interesting entries in the modern Progressive Rock scene.The tracks of the album are accesible, easy-listening and groovy but at the same time the arrangements are demanding, full of rich sounds and virtuosic passages.Drawing influences from the DREAM THEATER style of Progressive Metal, the technique of Fusion musicians/bands like DERIK SHERINIAN and PLANET X and the lyrical expression of QUEEN, Profusion propose an amalgam full of irritating melodies, intricate solos, superb vocal arrangements and memorable choruses.The great balance between the complicated instrumental interplays and the beautiful vocal sections is a listening to remember and a great guide for all young bands, which want to come up with something both accesible and progressive.

Definitely ''Rewotower'' ranks among the best releases of 2012.An album that respects the feelings of anger and happiness, the words accesible and complex and the styles of Rock and Metal.Stunning stuff, highly recommended.
