5 stars I found this band and record today, the same day their second studio record was released. The people who play this eight track music record is Gino Terribile (drums, vocals), Giuseppe Terribile (bass, vocals), Franco Piccolini (keyboards), Roberto Giordana (guitar) and Piuccio Pradal (vocal, 12 string guitar). They built this group back in the seventies but the didnt make a full scale record. In recent days they have and they are totally amazing. Perhaps the don't have the best singer but otherwise this music is brilliant. This is amazing symphonic rock. I am so surprised of Italy, what a marvelous prog nation, mostly of what that land has brought us seems to be fantastic.

Every track here is very good. The music is virtous and it has some form of feeling of the seventies prog. The music is very distinct, you can hear every instrument very clear. Mostly they use their common instruments but I can alse hear flute and saxophone it it. One of the best tracks is the instrumental "Labirinto" which is calm but has a wonderful melody with nice organs and flute work. The longest track "La Promesa" starts distinct with vocals and has a great and smart composition driven by guitar and organ. "Una nuova realtà" is another strong and fast track with different sections and the vocals begins at four minutes. A winning piece of prog. "Oggi volerò" has heavy rock. Every track is wonderful and interesting. It happens a lot int their music, it has a lot of drive. It's never indecisive but allways powerful and harmonic. This is very melodical music. Perhaps they didn't experiment so much but this is absolutely a full scale symphonic prog record. I say it again, I am surprised of the music of Italy which is so great. I know very little, almost nothing about this band but I will listen more and do some research. This is splendid prog from the twentyfirst century.
