I hope that they will have worked on the sound. The original was recorded in my grandmother kitchen. Big smile

Good news from BTF

Siegfried il drago...e altre storie (new recordings)

A privately pressed and very rare album, Siegfried, il drago e altre storie was the first and only LP released by this Turin band, that was active from 1974 and that had previously recorded two tapes and some tracks posthumously released on CD in early 90's.
The band was initially a trio with no name, then a quartet that only took its name Errata Corrige when newcomer Mike Abate replaced previous guitarist Cardellino. Two demo-tapes, entitled Da mago a musicista and Saturday il cavaliere were released by the early line-ups.
After their latest concert at Teatro Carignano in Turin in June 1975 and the following breakup, the musicians decided to record in a studio some of their compositions as a document of their past activity. These recordings were issued on LP in 1976, with fantasy-inspired lyrics and dreamy soft-prog atmospheres not unlike Celeste in their first album or Pierrot Lunaire. More complex arrangements and rhythm changes make this an attractive and original sounding record. Band members play a long list of instruments with good musicianship.

The Cd is a new recording of the old songs + a DVD with a bonus track.

TRACK LIST:
1) VIAGGIO DI SAGGEZZA
2) DEL CAVALIERE CITADEL E DEL DRAGO DELLA FORESTA DI LUCANOR
   a) Il Richiamo
   b) Nella Foresta
   c) Il Drago
   d) Fuggi Citadel
   e) Ritorno al Villaggio
3) SIEGFRIED (Leggenda)
4) SIEGFRIED (Mito)
5) DAL LIBRO DI BORDO DELL’ADVENTURE

Daal may just be the band for you then.

Thanks guys for the tips. I had a quick listen to Ergonon on Spotify and has left a good first impression, will explore them further.
 
Can't locate any samples of SKE, but had a listen to Yugen which is the band Paolo Ske Botta plays in and it is a bit too eccentric for my tastes.
 
Any other Italian bands perhaps a little heavier than Ergonon and with English lyrics?
 
Here is a sample from Not a Good Sign as an example of an Italian band I really like (this is one of my favourite tracks for 2015).

Great minds think of bikes, indeed.

Another act with a modern sound to it is SKE. 1000 Autumni is a most wonderful album.

Hi Italian prog fans.
I need your help with recommendations of Italian prog bands with a modern sound.
 
As I posted a couple of posts above, I really enjoy European prog bands but struggle with Italian prog, most bands I have sampled seem to be into the retro '70s sound, but I have found 2 bands I like, 'Kingcrow' and 'Not a Good Sign' with a modern sound so I'm looking for similar bands.
 
Any recommendations from the experts here? Thanks.

I iniciated a topic about Osanna, but no one reply CryLOL

What you guys think about the new "Palepolitana"? I think its wonderfull.



I didn't particularly care for Palepolitana when I listened to it on Progstreaming. Too similar to mainstream Italian pop, which is generally a big turn-off for me. Though I grew up with that kind of music, I could never stand it. One reason why I like Battiato's "pop" albums is that they do not sound like mainstream Italian pop.


I like it so much! Shocked
But thats ok, not all music have to be unanimous. LOL

Been re-visiting this one lately...quite good!  Any news on these guys putting out anything new?
 
They are recording their second Album for some time now. But as all those bands they are rather slow,
so it will take some time until it's release.
