SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Italian band IL CASTELLO DI ATLANTE was formed back in 1974, and has been an active band unit ever since, making itself one of Italy's longest running progressive rock bands at this stage with an history going back more than 40 years at the time of writing. They didn't release any material until the early '90s however, but since the release of their debut album in 1992 a grand total of five studio and three live albums have been released. "Capitolo 8: Live" is their most recent production, released through Azafran Media and Musea Records in 2014.

Il Castello Di Atlante is an experienced band unit, and you can tell by the performance that this is a band that is secure in a live setting, both in terms of stage presence as well as the overall performance. As such this live CD and DVD dual package does represent the band in a fine manner. The sound quality is, if not lacking then at least unusually mixed, for my ears. The slightly closed in sound and what sounds like an emphasis on bass and drums doesn't quite suit a progressive rock band in my opinion, and for me and my taste in how music ideally should sound this live production doesn't manage to convey this band at their best. It is a well made production though, and as I guess there won't be too many additional live DVDs forthcoming from this veteran band, their existing fan base obviously should get a copy of this one before it's sold out. Those new to this band should probably give some of their studio albums a check prior to this one.
