Review by ProgShine
COLLABORATOR Errors & Omissions and Crossover Team
3 stars Italian band Presence is a kind of mystery, releasing albums each 4 or 5 years. Evil Rose (2008) is their latest and it was released by the also Italian Label Black Widow.

The group is a trio formed by Sophya Baccini (vocals), Sergio Casamassima (guitars and bass) and Enrico Iglio (keyboards). They also had Valerio Silenzi (drums) as a guest musician. The album starts in the same similar path as Lacrimosa does. The Gothic element is really evident as well in tracks like 'Cassandra'. 'Evil Rose' is a story with more than 18 minutes long where, as in the album as a whole, Sophya Baccini vocals are the main thing. We can also hear some Doom Metal on 'Subterreans'.

One of the things that really caught my attention here is a version of 'The Prophet's Song', originally on the album At Night At The Opera (1975) from Queen. But this version is completely useless, so, skip it.

In general the album isn't that bad, but the drum sound kill everything that could be good here. In general if you like Gothic music, go for it.

2.5 really!

Key track: Evil Rose

SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Neo Prog Team
2 stars Entering the millenium Presence were someone put on hold, as Sophya Baccini focused on her personal career.The 2002 ''The Sleeper Awakes + Live'' album gives a taste of the band's live activity, but the next year Baccini made her first composing attempt, writing a track for the ''Kalevala'' compilation of Musea Records.Over the next years she participated in various works as guest singer, like on Greenwall's ''From the treasure box'' or Malaavia's ''Vibrazioni liquide''.By the time she was writing material for her debut Presence returned as well after 8 years with new drummer Valerio Silenzi to release their fifth studio album, also the fifth one for the Black Widow label, entitled ''Evil rose''.

What had really hurt Presence over the years was actually their lack of sound development.Listening to ''Evil rose'', you get the idea it was pretty much written around the same time with ''Makumba''.The style is stable on a bombastic and operatic Symphonic/Heavy Prog with a very dark atmosphere and changing images between hard guitar runs and Classical-drenched organ themes, full of sudden breaks and orchestral flourishes.There is plenty of room for Baccini to come up with some extreme vocal exercises: operatic, distorted and more melodic vocal lines.But the whole feeling you finally get is that you still listen to a previous work by the band.The different variations seem not very tightly connected, the mass of shifting moods will eventually confuse the listener, although Presence is a skillful group to say the least.Fiery guitar solos, spacey keyboard lines, grandiose orchestral movements and punchy riffing are their basic elements, the ones that made the band well-known over the year along with the passionate rhythmic parts.Additionally this work is way too long, clocking at 70 minutes of similar-sounding music, that becomes annoying in the way.The 18-min. long title track is the best proof of Presence's ability to compose uneven still decent tracks.A very long introduction and some dissonant parts are pretty flat and uninteresting, but the guitar solos, the organ washes and the nice, melodic ending theme are quite nice.

The following year Baccini released her first album ''Aradia'' and Presence's activity has been ice cold for some years now, I guess the future of the band is rather questionable.

If ''Evil rose'' marks your first attempt to meet Presence, it will be propably a pretty good listening experience.But the lack of progress of the band over the timeline is not an advantage.Too long and sterile at moments, this album heads to fans of the band and die-hard Heavy Prog lovers...2.5 stars.

2 stars Presence is Sophya Baccini's daytime job and band. A band listed as a Rock Progressivo Italiano band. What we get here is heavy prog though with a lot of prog metal and British female fronted prog elements too. Sophya Baccini adds a lot of colours to their music though. At times, her vocals come ...
