Who knows them?
 
They are an italian prog-metal band (from Veneto) that released their unique album in 1995.
 
The label? Pickuprecords of Bassano del Grappa (Wink).

^ No they're not Ivan, it is a different band with the same name. I added them to the prog metal chart as "Epica (IT)" ... but I can't find any samples and they don't have a homepage. They're not even listed at allmusic ... does anybody have more information about the band? A list of band members would be nice, maybe one of them has a homepage with more infos.

I was curious, so I Googled the name and found this review:

Unfortunately it's in Italian, but if you need any help I can give you a hand with the translation.

The cd was on the huge shelf "italian music" of my record shop this morning.
 
Not bought it, though. Maybe in the next days, even if I'm not a fan of prog-metal. Apart of some classic metal bands as Iron Maiden.

The tracking list features also a cover version of PFM's "Impressioni di Settembre".

They're very obscure. I haven't found any references to them outside Italian sites, not even on huge metal databases like Metal Archives. That's quite strange.
