Sounds pretty straight forward to me - well played rock, with a prog edge.

They have a bass player that keeps it simple, but at the same time takes part in creating the melody (just listen to Katia!). Sabbia, which is more a guitar track is also not bad - I can even imagine a few 70's tracks that may have influenced it (in line with what they claim in their bio). Some of the guitar work under the verses does sound like a mixture of what Mr. Rothery did on Grendel (Tongue), but in the heavier parts the influence of Deep Purple (also mentioned in the bio) and Iron Maiden's Adrian Smith (not mentioned...) can be heard.
La Goccia is again a different beast - starts of with a waltz rhythm that quickly changes to 4/4 again, and with a folky feel to it.

Nice discovery, Andrea - let's hope that album is released soon.
