Review by andrea
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars Vu Meters is an Italian prog band from Rome that was formed by three experienced musicians: Stefano Pontani (guitars, loops - previously with Ezra Winston, Anagramma and Mathilda Mothers), Fabrizio Santoro (bass, guitar, mandolin, keyboards - former member of Nodo Gordiano and Oak) and Ugo Vantini (drums, keyboards - in the past with Ezra Winston, Divae, Twin Dragons and drummer in a recent line up of the reformed "seventies cult band" Il Balletto di Bronzo).

"Dark City", their debut album, was released in 2007 and it's the result of long "jam sessions". It's completely instrumental and features six long and complex tracks. The music flows like magma from volcano slopes, blending delicate beautiful melodies with fiery and raw passages with the rhythm section in the forefront. The mood is dark, unquiet like the art cover by Ugo Vantini... In many passages this work could remind of King Crimson (like in the opener "Brain Washing", in "Tetsuo" or in the hypnotic "AC/BC") while in other moments you can find a peculiar jazz feeling that melts in "pastoral and melodic" guitar solos (like in the excellent "Swarm Intelligence"). In some passages you can perceive some echoes of Perigeo, in others of Goblin (like in the end of the mysterious and gloomily beautiful title track), but on the whole this work has its own strong dose of originality and grows listen after listen... Definitively not bad for a self-production!
