Review by loserboy
3 stars DUNWICH delivers a very delicate medieval symphonic-like prog with beautiful female voices throughout. DUNWICH is loaded with lots of "ENYA'isms" and touches of POPOL VUH. Moody and foreboding, "Sul Monte." will take you places your mind has not gone. Emphasis here is on the serene and painted landscapes of the voices and choirs, never getting too loud or electric. In fact this is classic symphonic head music which is very soft a free flowing and should appeal to fans of TANGERINE DREAM and Klaus SCHULZE. This is great music to sit back, dim the lights and relax to with perhaps and old friend or bottle of beer.

2 stars The music held in here is quite special. Nothing to do with the classic symphonic Italian great music.

"Sul Monte E Il Tuono" features a few of these great items but the overall mood is more a combination of folkish styles, dark ambient partitions and heavy atmospheres. This album is more of a "concept" item which would only features one track of forty five minutes. There are hardly any break between each song , nor any theme change.

The music that can be found here is not too bad but frankly, don't expect too much from this offering. Female vocals are not always a guarantee of grandiose songs... At least, it is the impression that I have while I am listening to this album.

Few emotions, little fragrance, no grandeur at all IMHHO. The whole of this work is plagued with a bunch of weak vocals and average instrumental parts. It is hard to find a true and faithful track that could hold the flag a little higher.

In all, this album is a mix of some good organ play combined with poor vocals. Harmony, passion, feeling are alien to this work. You only need to listen to "Scela" or " Lo Sciamano Di Sackalin" to get it confirmed.

This work is quite difficult to depict, but I tried as hard as I could. You shouldn't bother with this release, for sure. Two stars is a maximum rating for this "Dunwich" debut.

2 stars An album I have been struggling with for a while. Thankfully, this is Dunwich's debut album. That means there is excuses we can use. For example Dunwich being young and inexperienced. Dunwich is listed in the Rock Progressivo Italiano genre. But on this album, there is very little which re ... (read more)

3 stars If you think that you'll find pure Italian Prog on this recording, maybe you are wrong. Dunwich debut album it's a mix of 70's italian prog rock, gothic, folk, some mediavel inffluences and dark athmospheres. A regular album with great songs like "Dove Dorme Re Artu", "La Fortezza di Surami", ... (read more)
