As far as I know it's rather a one man Project with guests. It's Andrea Lotti behind that, Andrea was one
of the Keyboardists (and played some Guitar) of CdZ and was replaced by Luca Scherani on this position.
 
I don't think there are any Delirium guys on that Album. Guest apart from a whole Orchestra are
the vocalist of TdC, the former Drummer of TdC and the bass Player from CdZ.

Just saw a post, that new Nathan album will apparently be available as of 19th April. My birthday is on the 20th, so I might buy it as an early gift!

Wonderful, H, thank you, going to get onto this one right away!

Very few modern RPI purchase for me this decade but I'm planning to order more in a short while...looks like this thread will be quite helpful.


From the few recent stuff I've heard La Machera's le Porte del Domani is a firm favorite.

and this little beauty:

Ha, you're definitely missing out on some beauties, Martin!

But speaking of missing out, even I sadly don't own that Medusa one, even though I'm well aware of its reputation!

I just recently placed an order to catch up on several vintage Italian titles (mostly more obscure ones) that passed me by, but my next one will be to boost my Nineties onwards collection, and I'll make sure this is one of them

Yeah, but the problem with these Italian titles is their almost non-existant availability here in Canada (even amazon rarely stock them) and overseas/US shipping costs/customs fees can be quite insane.

That Medusa is truly excellent...play it loud, very loud!

Cheers.

edit: Just checked La Coscienza di Zeno ($52.86) and Gran Turismo ($49.79) on amazon...no thanks, baby.

Martin, there's definitely other options for getting modern RPI discs affordably. Unfortunately one of the most high-profile sites (BMS Distribution) has some of the most unbearable postage prices I've ever seen (at least to Australia where I live), but other online stores like Syn-Phonic have very reasonable prices (although the website rarely gets updated and you have to email to ask if certain things are available).

However, it's many of the 90's titles that go for hugely extravagant prices because of how rare they've become, and many of them are long out of print!

For instance, I've really wanted to buy a copy of one by a group from the 90's called Lethe, their CD `Nymphae' loooooooong vanished. Not a single copy available even on a site like Discogs. Ha, I even tried looking up the band members on Facebook to get in contact with them and asking them if they had any left, and I still couldn't track them down!

PS - If anyone has one for sale, please let me know!

Checked my old list of US sellers and found one who have many of these recent titles in stock at reasonable prices ($15-20).

Time to place some orders and get myself into financial trouble once again.

Il Bacio della Medusa are awesome, the album shown above is their best.
The band are recording their 4th studio album at the moment...
 
Lethe have reformed for at least some live activity.. So maybe they can be found easier soon..
 
So long some Facebook Pages of Lethe members:

Really nice music.

The guitar sounds like  Andy Revell from Twelfth Night

Very good start indeed..Unreal and Tempio were very enjoyable on first listen and La Conscienza was freaking excellent!

and the next listens will surely be even better.
