Plenilunio biography
PLENILUNIO originate from Acqui Terme in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy, the same part of the country that also produced bands such as ATON'S and LOCANDA DELLE FATE. Oddly enough PLENILUNIO are fairly close in musical terms to those artists albeit they are less intricate and err more on the side of mainstream rock. Their name translates in English as ''full moon'' and it was chosen because of the band's interest in the legends of vampires and werewolves. That source of inspiration doesn't appear to stretch to their songs although these are driven by the notion of escaping from reality into a world of fantasy and dreams.

Information on the band members is scant but drummer Fabio Zorgno and guitarist Fabrizio ''Biz'' Genta share a background in the fusion-based THE PITCH BOYS. The remaining members are Valter Camparo (keyboards), Roberto Camparo (bass) and lead singer and main songwriter Roberto Maggiotto. They released their debut album ''Respiri Lunghi 1000 Miglia'' in June 2012 and its accent is on short, concise compositions that blend romantic Italian pop with elements of progressive rock. The band's main influences are the major UK prog groups of the seventies, but in spite of the strong influence from across the Channel PLENILUNIO sing in their mother tongue. In fact, it is through Maggiotto's voice that the RPI mainly finds expression. He sounds not unlike the great Leonardo Sasso, thus reinforcing the above comparison with LDF, and in parallel with his passionate vocals are some distinctly Italian timbres among the keyboards and guitars.

PLENILUNIO have just about grasped the nexus between Italian pop and UK prog rock; if they can tip the balance in favour of the latter on future releases they may just be on to something. However, on the strength of their current form they can really only be recommended to committed adherents of the RPI. ''Respiri Lunghi 1000 Miglia'' is currently available as a digital download from Amazon.

Review by apps79

— First review of this album —
3 stars This unknown Italian band hailed from the city of Acqui Terme, having a core of four musicians.Original formation appears to have been Valter Camparo on keyboards, Roberto Camparo on bass, Davide Pronzato on guitar and Roberto Maggiotto on drums, later to expand to a five-piece line-up with Maggiotto switching to the vocals, Fabrizio "Biz" Genta replacing Pronzato on guitars and Fabio Zorgno jumping in as the new drummer.Only release of Plenilunio came as a digital purchase in 2012 under the title ''Respiri lunghi 1000 miglia''.

Plenilunio were extremely influenced by the 70's scene of Italian Prog, not much of the Banco or Le Orme school, but more of the FORMULA TRE, ERRATA CORRIGE and similar bands' stylings, which was an undisputed Symphonic Rock of the softer side with slight poppy injections.Their debut contained twelve short tracks with mellow keyboards, smooth guitar plays and excellent vocals, all obtaining the classic romantic sound of the Italian tradition and le by some exceptional melodies, refined orchestrations and light electric tunes.Despite the relaxed atmosphere the armour of the band comprised of Mellotron, organ, acoustic and electric piano and synthesizers towards a flexible instrumentation.About 1/3 of these pieces are very accesible with Melodic Rock sensibilities, driven by the background keyboard parts and the emotional solos, while the rest of the album is good, albeit a bit secure, Italian-flavored Prog Rock with symphonic interludes, spacious textures, sentimental vocal harmonies and Classical-tinged piano themes.But even these cuts tend to be very memorable with focus on solid songwriting than complex moves, not necessarilly a bad thing, because the music is pretty great with Maggiotto being a fantastic frontman and the instrumental core performing at a sufficient level switching from symphonic to artistic to ultra-melodic deliveries.

I guess with this album the band was done for good with no further updates on their FB page, but the document left behind is a fine example of melodic, soft Italian Prog with symphonic orientations and a discreet old-school aura.Recommended.
