Neil On Impression biography
Founded in Forlė, Italy in 2002

NEIL ON IMPRESSION is an Italian instrumental outfit, playing a very different style of "Epic" Post Rock comprise of: Alessio (guitar), Ando (keyboards, piano) Matteo (bass), Paride (trumpet, synthesizers), Riccardo (drums), Riccardo (guitar), Sara (violin). Their music is very guitar based, and doesn't tend to drop into ambient, or more darker moods. Instead it's much more buisier than the otherwise simple style of post rock, with dynamic piano and strings, backing the clean guitar arpeggios, and leads. The music is driving, and usually full of energy, with Math rock esque drumming, and very unorthodox epic climaxes, which separates this group from the so-called "eits wannabe's". Their second album "The Perfect Tango" was released in 2006, and was well received by Post Rock circles internationally. Recommended to fans of the more straight forward Post Rock groups Like Mogwai, The Pirate Ship quintet, and Followed By Ghosts.

5 stars If this is Math-Rock, count me in as a genre's fan, ha-ha!

Seriously, simply one of the best albums ever released in the Post-Rock/Math-Rock genre. Known for mellow mood and 'quiet -> loud' structure cliche, Post-Rock has always been something spiritual (for genre's fans) yet boring (for others). This spiritual boredom is a remarkable feature of many releases, even such grinding stones as MOGWAI ones. NEIL ON IMPRESSION has nothing common with boredom whatsoever. Still, it's not that quirky Math-Rock stuff, built around one riff, which is played in different signature/tempo variations. I can clearly hear Italian Prog's heritage in 'The Perfect Tango', mainly LOCANDA DELLE FATE's manner of crossing guitar and piano lines. On the other hand, one of the guitarists plays in hardcore/emo band RIEN, and this is pretty noticeable, when NEIL ON IMPRESSION gets heavy and speedy. Blurring lines between Math-Rock's amazing proggyness and Post-Rock's emotional deep, 'The Perfect Tango' serves as a paragon of pure musical beauty and harmony (this 'The Silent Glance of Andromeda' track is simply gorgeous in this terms!). Extremely recommended!!!

Thanks to Dim for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
