Goad biography
GOAD were first formed in the Florence area by the Rossi brothers, Gianni and Maurilio, in the late Seventies. At the end of 1983, they released the album "Creatures" for Northcott Production, a New York label that had already released in the USA their album of covers, "Who Can It Be". The album was issued by Emmegi (distributed by Polygram) in 1985. In spite of lack of support from the label, another album was completed. "Perfume" is a collection of pieces written and recorded from 1985 to 1988, which was never released.


In the following years, Maurilio started working on a project dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe. The recording took place in the summer of 1994. The band, besides Rossi (vocals, keyboards and bass), consisted of drummer Giancarlo "Bronco" Gaglioti and various guests, among whom were guitarist Marcello Becattini and the late Marcello Masi, formerly of Strana Officina. "Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe" was released in 1995 and distributed in the same year by Multipromo. This time, the tone was very different from the other two albums: it was a more atmospheric and evocative brand of progressive rock.


The relationship with Multipromo ended after the publication of the fourth album, "Glimpse", released in 1998 after numerous cuts and a mix not approved by Rossi. Their fifth album, called "Streghe?", was the soundtrack to the play of the same name. The album was never released, but is still part of Multipromo's catalogue. The next year, Rossi's band recorded the official soundtrack to the film "La Scacchiera" (The Chessboard) by director Massimiliano Mauceri. The CD contains 6 tracks, but only "La Scacchiera" featured on the short film of the same name.


In 1999 GOAD released "Il Minosse", one of their most complex and individual works, a play written by Franco Petrone and Luca Leonello Rimbotti. Their sound got darker and more progressive, with symphonic overtones and hard rock stylings, combining the solemnity of early King Crimson with Zeppelin's harsh energy. In 2002 Rossi returned to work on a very ambitious project, a musical version of Edgar Lee Masters' "Spoon River Anthology", a cornerstone of American literature. It was released in the summer of 2004 by Mellow records as a single album (though the original was a double) with the title of "Raomen - Spoon River Anthology Songs" - a sophisticated, progressive rock offering, influenced by both symphonic prog (early King Crimson, Genesis) and complex hard rock (Rush, Triumph)....

In 2004 GOAD participated in the much-awaited "Tribute to King Crimson", issued by Mellow with the collaboration of other Italian labels. They chose "Epitaph", one of the most beautiful songs from Robert Fripp's band, one of the main influences for Rossi and the band. They also recorded a cover of "Have You Heard - The Voyage" by The Moody Blues, which would appear soon after on a Moody Blues tribute CD released by Mellow Records.
The years 2005-2006 brought a flurry of activity in the band's ranks. First, they recorded the album "The Wood - Dedicated to H.P. Lovecraft", with the help of several notable guest musicians; it was released by Mellow Records in 2006. Toward the end of 2005, the group had got in touch with Black Widow Records, possibly the most "alchemical" label in Italy, if not on the whole planet. The result of this cooperation was the live recording "In the House of Dark Shining Dreams", which included some tracks from their self-produced, 2001 album "Dark Virgin", as well as covers of prog masterpieces like "Killer" by VDGG and "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson. The album was also released in 2006, and marked the beginning of a new era for GOAD.




Why this artist must be listed in www.progarchives.com :
Though they have been active for a long time, GOAD haven't yet received the recognition they deserve for their very individual brand of dark, Crimson-influenced prog.

Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe
Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

3 stars Goad were formed in Florence in 1974 by brothers multi-instrumentalist Maurilio Rossi and guitarist Gianni Rossi at the time of Italian Prog Rock's golden period, but never had the luck to come up with a proper release as many groups of the era.They did however record the album "Creatures" in 1983, issued by Emmegi in 1985, but this was more or less their only known work until the 90's next to a couple of cover songs' efforts.Years later Maurilio would be the only Rossi member left in the line-up and by the end of the 80's he started working on material based on Edgar Allan Poe's writings.His main collaborator around the time was drummer Giancarlo Gaglioti and in early-90's Maurilio managed to record the work ''Tribute to Edgar Allan Poe'' with the help of some guest musicians.The album was released privately in 1994.

Sung in English, this is a sufficient work of mellow Progressive Rock close to the standards of EZRA WINSTON and ERIS PLUVIA with a good instrumental depth and interesting vocals with a few pale parts but also lots of very good material, drawing influences from Classic Prog, Neo Prog and smooth 60's Psychedelic Rock, somewhat hold down by its indifferent production.The more psychedelic passages are characterized by the inventive use of drums, the English vocals and the clever use of harmonica and acoustic guitars, but they are never left to lead the music.Rossi and company always surround this kind of music with atmospheric synthesizers and soft organ washes, close to the lines of 90's Italian Prog groups, while the electric solos are pretty great with a notable resemblance to compatriots MOONGARDEN.This way Goad try to combine colors from a dated period of Rock Music with a more modern aura and the result is quite satisfying.The musis is not complex and remains always at a downtempo mood yet it always reveals a mysterious inner power, created by its hypnotic textures, the changes between different time period influences and the good mix of vintage and modern instruments.A few tracks remain at a lower level with a questionable sound regarding their style (Acoustic Folk or Blues-based tunes), making the whole effort a bit incohesive.But the beautiful melodies, the diverse musical pallettes and the nice musicianship are mostly convincing and rewarding.

Listen by listen I tended to think that Goad's 90's return suffers more from its average production than the music contained.Still this is well-crafted album of 90's Prog with a nostalgic feeling, recommended to fans of multi-inspired Prog works with a definite 90's sound.

Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by andrea
Prog Reviewer

4 stars "I am a singer of songs that I learned in the far city, and my calling is to make beauty with the things remembered of childhood. My wealth is in little memories and dreams, and in hopes that I sing in gardens when the moon is tender and the west wind stirs the lotos-buds..." (H.P. Lovecraft, from The Quest Of Iranon). Well, I think that this quote could describe in some way the spirit and the mood of Goad's new album, "Masquerade". Maurilio Rossi and his band have been around for many years although they have never emerged from the underground scene. Luckily they never gave up the musical dreams of their youth and in my opinion "Masquerade" is their best work so far. It was recorded between 2007 and 2011 with a line up featuring Maurilio Rossi (organ, keyboards, bass, guitars), Francesco Diddi (violin, flute, sax, guitar), Gianni Rossi (guitar, backing vocals), Vick Usai (drums), Tommaso Baggiani (drums), Luis Magnanimo (bass), and Antonio Vannucci (piano, keyboards) but during the recording sessions they were helped by many guest musicians. The album was finally released in 2011 on the independent label Black Widow Records and I think that the result is excellent. You can find here all the passion of the band for vintage sounds and the literary works of artists such as Edgar Allan Poe or Howard Phillips Lovecraft. Among Goad's sources of inspiration there are bands such as Van der Graaf Generator, Genesis or King Crimson, of course, but the song-writing of this Florentine band is good and rich in ideas.

The opener "Fever Called Living" features heavy electric guitar riffs, touches of flute and dark organ rides. It describes a desperate escape from reality where the grave becomes a shelter, a peaceful bed where you can rest and dream for the eternity... "Thanks Heaven! The crises, the danger is past... And the fever called living is conquered at last...". The following "Eldorado" is a hard rock track in two parts that could recall Deep Purple. The lyrics are taken from a poem by E.A. Poe describing a gallant knight and his pointless quest for the land of gold... "But he grew old / This knight so bold / And o'er his heart a shadow / Fell as he found / No spot of ground / That looked like Eldorado...".

"The Last Knowledge" is another track divided into two parts. It is calmer, melancholic and evokes overwhelming memories, the dark shadow of a missing lover and the killing strength of her absence. Next comes the reflective "The Judge" which describes in music and words a strange meeting with a talking painting crying blood. It's the painting of an old judge who during his life condemned many people to death and now is haunted by their ghosts for the eternity... "I spent all my life sitting on that chair / Trying to understand, trying to be fair / Many and many lives I had in my hand / I was a judge, I was like God / They gave the power to punish with my rod...".

The next three tracks are also taken from E.A. Poe's poems. "The Valley Of Unrest" features an ethereal, sad atmosphere evoking perennial tears which descend in gems from a cloudy sky, "To Helen" features a strong classical inspiration and is an unconventional ode to beauty while the delicate, introspective "Alone" expresses isolation and inner torment. Then comes "Masquerade (Fast & Short)", just an appetizer for the long conclusive suite.

The nice classical inspired instrumental "Intro (Classic Guitar Prelude)" leads to the mysterious, mystic "Slave Of The Holy Mountain" which describes an unsuccessful, metaphorical climbing to Heaven. The following "Dreamland" is another good track inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's powerful poetry and precedes a beautiful, dark instrumental titled "The Haunted Palace".

The last track, "Masquerade (With Dance Macabre)", is a long, complex suite divided into five parts. It describes a strange dream and reminds me of the atmosphere of a H.P. Lovecraft's story... "There in the moonlight that flooded the spacious plain was a spectacle which no mortal, having seen it, could ever forget. To the sound of reedy pipes that echoed over the bog there glided silently and eerily a mixed throng of swaying figures, reeling through such a revel as the Sicilians may have danced to Demeter in the old days under the harvest moon beside the Cyane. The wide plain, the golden moonlight, the shadowy moving forms, and above all the shrill monotonous piping, produced an effect which almost paralysed me...". (H.P. Lovecraft, The Moon-Bog). The musical texture here is extremely rich, there are many nuances and every time you'll listen to this piece you'll discover something new...

Well, all in all I think that this is a very good album... Have a try!

Masquerade
Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by Nightfly
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

3 stars Goad are an Italian band from Florence formed by brothers Maurilio and Gianni Rossi in the late seventies. I regret to say that it's only with Masquerade, their eighth studio album that I've finally discovered them. Regret because Masquerade is a fascinating album, a long, dark and brooding record with much to discover.

Firstly I'm going to say that Masquerade is not an easy ride. For starter's it's seventy seven minutes long and requires considerable time and effort to digest it all. A diverse range of musical styles and the usual instrumentation of guitar, bass, bass drums and keyboards augmented by sax, flute and violin give great scope, which they make full use of, for an album touching many bases. The nearest musical parallels I can draw bring to mind King Crimson (early seventies), though in a simpler form and Van Der Graaf Generator. Their dark prog has heavier elements at times as well as symphonic touches. The music is often raw, at times appearing somewhat disjointed as if it's about to all fall apart at any moment which adds to the unsettling feel. I find the keyboard sounds and textures particularly appealing, often haunting and melancholic complimented by some visceral guitar work. The music's not particularly structurally complex but made interesting by the diversity of layers and sounds. Some may find the vocals of Maurilio Rossi hard to handle - my 14 year old daughter asked me if he was in pain! Nevertheless he has an emotional delivery and reminded me of a rougher and less tuneful Micky Jones of Man fame and is integral to the band's sound.

Despite many excellent moments the length of the CD turns out to be its weakness and I can't help feeling that a bit of editing may have produced a stronger album. However the many high points including Eldorado, The Judge, To Helen and Alone more than make amends. The closing thirteen minute title track doesn't quite live up to expectations, the various parts not holding together too well but worth hearing nevertheless. Masquerade is a very good album that the aforementioned editing could have turned into an excellent one. Still well worth 3 stars and no doubt about it, I really want to hear more of this fascinating band.

Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by toroddfuglesteg

2 stars Not the most easy accessible music, Goad's music. Normally, their music is pretty hard to grasp. And Goad has made it even more difficult for themselves with this low-fi production. The sound is pretty horrible on this album and it tries a hide and seek game in the speakers. And I have some good speakers.

The music here is downtuned doomy heavy prog. Quite sludgy at times and also a bit symphonic too. The guitars is so pushed into the background that they are hard to detect. The vocals is far too much in the foreground. The bass, tangents and drums is hoverings somewhere between the guitars and the vocals.

The music is not too bad. There are some good stuff here. But the sound has killed this album and that is a huge shame. Please remix and remaster this album, anyone.

Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by Finnforest

4 stars Strange, windy, and unsettled....

Goad is a project over 30 years old who have joined forces with the illustrious Black Widow Records. Led by Florence based brothers Gianni and Maurilio Rossi the band has numerous releases. While this is the first album I've heard by Goad I have a distinct gut feeling "Masquerade" is a special one, it feels like a band reborn rather than a band at the end of a long road. The most obvious influence to me is Van Der Graaf Generator though there are also notes of Crimson and darker heavy rock and prog-rock bands. The band is very much in step with another well known band of Italian VDGG devotees, their label mates in the superb Areknames. I actually prefer Goad to Areknames a little bit though, while still dense there is more contrasting space here. Other references that came to mind include Hero, Procol Harum, sometimes even Jacula for the dark organ atmospheres.

At 77 minutes "Masquerade" is a long and chilling journey which some will say could use editing, but those who enjoy it will not want it to end. Driving heavy guitars and bass, chunky, lumbering and distorted are featured with all manner of dark keyboard textures, saxophone, and larger than life vocals. The moods are powerful and thundering, occasionally contrasted with eerie softer sections which just make the tracks pop with intrigue. In these sections you will experience sumptuous solo string performance, flute, and acoustic guitar----even a classical solo interlude at one point. But the most important impression to convey is the sense of unease and imbalance foisted on the listener as this unfolds like a tale from a dusty old magician's book. The music's structure in these weird sections are unpredictable and throw you off base, they make you feel odd somehow. True haunting mood music, I love it! Several pieces are long enough to allow some great instrumental stretching. Some listeners are going to find this work an unstructured mess while others (like me) are going to love the strange magic and feeling of being lost in the woods. The two part "To Helen" may be my favorite, featuring spirited guitar leads challenged by violin accompaniment, it then spirals into a strange place with descending piano lines behind the bold string performance. The five part title suite closes the album with a hearty epic feel and charms. I really enjoy these kinds of intimate projects which sound so different from much of what is out there these days. You can tell these guys are still in it for the love of good music.

"Masquerade" is going to thrill lovers of the dark, turbulent prog-rock that Black Widow specializes in. The only thing that would have made it better for me personally would have been Italian vocals. But I'll spare you that rant this time. Don't miss Goad if you enjoy Areknames or Jacula/Rex, though Goad are not as overtly dark as the latter. Italy is having yet another great year of releases! 3 1/2 stars.

Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by toroddfuglesteg

3 stars Without any expectations whatsoever, I entered their world.

And what a strange brew I got in my hands. They are listed as eclectic prog and Black Widow is their label. So it must be a dark brew then. Not quite. What Goad has come up with here is a mix of commercial American stadium rock, AOR, RPI, stoner rock aka Black Sabbath, eclectic and symphonic prog. A mix of Journey, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Black Widow and Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso in other words. An eclectic mix, to say at least. I am really having problems getting my head around this mix, I have to say. I gladly admit my jaw was on the floor during the first listening session.

Unfortunate, the band does not come up with the great songs this style of music require. The music ticks over very nicely, thank you. The vocals is excellent. The same can be said about the rest of the band which lays down a nice soundscape filled with organic tangents, electric guitars, bass and drums. This is by all means a very good album, but the dot over the i is missing and so is any real great songs. But I want to hear more from this band on the basis of this album.

3 stars

In The House Of Dark Shining Dreams
Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by andrea
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Goad is an Italian band from Florence that has been active for more than 20 years. Among their main influences and "sources of inspiration" you can find bands like Van Der Graaf Generator, King Crimson, Black Widow, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Triumph, Genesis, Catapilla, Atomic Rooster and Black Sabbath, along with writers and poets like H.P. Lovercraft, Edgar Allan Poe and Edgar Lee Masters. "In the House of the Dark Shining Dreams" is the first Goad's album released for Black Widow Records, an interesting and dynamic Italian independent label from Genoa with a special taste for gothic and dark prog, and features some re-arranged pieces from their album "Dark Virgin" along with some new songs and two covers (King Crimson's "21st Schizoid Man" and Van Der Graaf Generator's "Killer").

The album is introduced by the unquiet notes of a violin emerging from a raging storm that lead to straight the subject matter of this work... Nightmares! On the second track "Yet Another Battlefield", music seems to bellow from underground with the sound of the organ marching ghostly in the forefront, while muddy and suffering vocals draw imagines of dead grey soldiers... You can find the same gothic atmosphere in the following "The Clapper Beatin' Fast", where leaden words are sung in anguish and fear by vocals soaring upon distorted guitars and organ... "In the house of the dark shining dreams / Lived the dumb Phantom / White was her face, vermilion the halo..."... Well, in my opinion lyrics are not the strength of this album but the music is intriguing and flows away like the soundtrack of a long nightmare where "a dark night devours and swallows the reality"... "Dark Virgin", "Olympia", "Killer", "Steep Path", "Springy": the sound is compact but not boring, there are some bluesy moments (like in "As Nothing Had Changed") and sometimes you can really feel a "wind of madness whistling in your ears". The final "Genius Of Europe" (evoking the ghost of a "World of eternal glory and beauty" corroded by hate and by the "wicked strokes of the new tele-barbarians") concludes, after more than 77 minutes, an interesting musical journey in the "gothic side of prog".

Although perhaps not essential in a prog collection, in the whole this is a good album and I think it's worth listen to...

In The House Of Dark Shining Dreams
Goad Eclectic Prog

Review by erik neuteboom
Prog Reviewer

3 stars GOAD is a project by musical brainchild/multi-instrumentalist Maurilio Rossi and his brother Gianni, rooted in the late Seventies. Not until 1994 GOAD released their debut CD entitled Tribute To E.A. Poe. More than 10 years later, after six studio-albums, GOAD recorded the live-CD In The House Of The Dark Shining Dreams. Well, listening to this album I have to conclude that's a quite extraordinary musical experience, to say the least! Most of the songs sound ominous and hypnotizing with slow rhythms, raw and fiery guitar work, propulsive drums and vocals that come mighty close to the sound of somebody who is on the brink of a nervous breakdown, what a spooky voice. In some songs we can enjoy the majestic sound of the church organ, at those moments GOAD reminds me of the infamous 'prog from hell' by Jacula. It's no coincidence that GOAD decided to play a cover of King Crimson their ominous sounding composition 21st Century Schizoid Man, the use of organ and synthesizers adds a special flavor to the unique rendition. And it's no coincidence that GOAD also decided to play some work of Wagner (the intro of the final track) with the sound of a classical orchestra, very dark and ominous, again. To me this album by GOAD sounds fascinating but it's not my cup of tea, too dark.
