Definitely interesting, as usual Andrea. The track Metamorphosis reminds me of PFM and the music of old English TV series and movies (James Bond, Mission Impossible) at the same time. Quite noisy, but with nice edges to it (bass work, flute)....

They appear to have an album out - but their MySpace page is in Italian. Could you try contacting them for more information on the album Avatara, released in 2005?
If that is a real album, inclusion is no problem I expect.

Bookmarked for futher investigation.
Even prog is rooted in the blues, at some point...

Their MySpace bio says they are "hard rock progressive", which would make them suitable for inclusion in HP. Unfortunately, they come from the same town as a person who in the past hurt me very badly (a woman, not a man, and for professional reasons)... Of course, if they make good music, I won't hold it against them at all!LOL

Thanks for having a listen, Rafaella and Micky. Let's see if we can find out about that album now....

I have listened to their material, and I got the impression of a band with great potential... Hard-edged, flute-driven prog in the tradition of great RPI bands such as Biglietto per l'Inferno. The vocals are the only weak link - again, another feature of RPI (unfortunately for some). However, I'll be happy to submit them to the attention of my teammate, David - especially if they do have an album out.
