Khali biography
KHALI is a new progressive metal band from Italy. The musicians behind this band are all members or they just passed from the well known Italian progressive band : TIME MACHINE. The line-up : Folco Orlandini-vocals, Nick Rossetti-drums, Joe Taccone-guitars and Lorenzo Deho'-bass.

From their involvement in music so far, you can imagine what KHALI are up to: progressive melodic metal or a melodic / semi-progressive approach to metal in the vein of QUEENSRYCHE "Empire". The epic symphonic element in the music is created not by the single instruments, but much more by the song writing itself. The music is huge, well thought-out, and definitely "different" of what an album of today has to offer. Features the fantastic vocals of Folco Orlandini.

Khali Progressive Metal

Review by Mellotron Storm

3 stars KHALI is an Italian band made up of former members of TIME MACHINE, and they offer up a melodic and accessible brand of Metal. If you know TIME MACHINE you know they change vocalists constantly. The vocalist for KHALI (Folco Orlandini) sang on the "Act II:Galileo" album. He sings in English.The bass player and leader Lorenzo Deho also plays some background synths as they have no full time keyboard player.

"Cyberpleasure" gets off on the wrong foot for me. I don't like the lyrics at all, in fact they're humerous because of how bad they are. The music is solid though. "Another Day" has a nice heavy soundscape. Vocals a minute in with riffs in tow. A much better song. A calm 3 1/2 minutes in followed by a tasteful guitar solo. Some more good riffs and bass 5 minutes in. "Somebody Haunts Me" has a melodic soundscape that's not as heavy as the previous song. Excellent guitar after 3 minutes that goes on until almost the 4 minute mark.

"Wind Of Ages-Chapter I" is the longest and best track on here. It's 9 minutes long. It opens with the sound of the wind blowing and vocal sounds before the guitar then background synths come in. Great sound. It gets more powerful after 6 minutes with some killer guitar. "Wind Of Ages-Chapter II" is slower paced but still powerful. I love it. "Spiritual Distortions" is a mid paced tune that's not very dynamic. it's ok. "Heaven Again" is better at first as the riffs lead the way, but it settles down when the vocals arrive. "So Far Away" seems to get better as it plays out. An incredibly intense sound after 2 minutes followed by a ripping guitar solo.

Good album that I think will appeal to a lot of people who are into TIME MACHINE and melodic Metal. I wish it was a little more consistant because then it would easily be a 4 star record for me.

Khali Progressive Metal

Review by Greger

4 stars Italy has produced many great bands through the years. Next in line are the prog metal super-group KHALI with their self-titled debut album. Founded by members from such bands as ABIGHOR, ARCHANGEL, MESMERIZE, MOON OF STEEL, N8, SKYLARK, TIME M'ACHINE and WHITE SKULL.

Their music sounds like a mix between QUEENSRYCHE's "Empire" and TIME MACHINE's "Eternity Ends" with heavy guitars and a great singer. Although the members are good musicians their strength lies in the strong melodies and arrangements. Many of the songs are very good, but unfortunately there's also some easily forgotten ones too.

A really interesting release from a band with a potential to become even better! Recommended!

Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to easy livin for the last updates
