I Think there was a Felona and Sorona one to...

I have the `Latte Miele Passio secundum Mattheum the Complete Works' and the Nuovo idea Live anthology (DVD) about to arrive any day now in an order, as well as several other Italian titles - I forget which they are off the top of my head, but I'll post what they are when the package arrives (hopefully tomorrrow!)

Now I have a question for you!

Can you think of anywhere, or even particular bands, that sell Italian prog album themed t-shirts, possibly of their albums covers?

I'm waiting for Latte E Mielle too. I didn't know there's a Nuova Idea DVD Shocked Do you know anything about it?

It was a Black Widow title, Sagi, check it out on their main page here!

http://www.blackwidow.it/

Hmm, seeing that new `GLEEMEN - Oltre...lontano, lontano' CD listed at the bottom of the page reminds me that I need to give that a spin, I bought the CD of it in my last order from Syn-Phonic, so it's waiting on the shelf at home!

Thank you guys! I'm also interested in Victor peraino's Kingdom Come.

I was never impressed with Gleemen actually but this one might be good, still featuring the one and only Bambi Fossati and Marco Zuccheddu from Nuova Idea's debut and Osage Tribe!!!

Funny I just stoped listening to the new Kingdome Come 5 minutes ago.

Much better than I feared, not as good as I hoped. It's not the 70s anymore so I would say it's worth its price.

Listened to the new Gleemen streaming, nice blues rock but not to much
in a Prog direction going on.

I have a few Goblin T-Shirts but that is about it from RPI land. Got one at their concert and the others on e-bay.
Let me know what you dig up. Wouldn't mind having an Unreal City shirt. Love La Crudeltà di Aprile's album cover. It's exquisitely evil.

Just heared Syndone's new album (and love it).

Pretty cool stuff, typical heavy keys - screaming vocals RPI changing
into nice pearling piano and percussion to brass heavy jazz rock
in a few minutes.

Wow, thank you, H and guys, so many terrific suggestions! :)

Well, good luck for me, the package arrived, so my Italian additions for this order were:

TAPROBAN - STRIGMA
GIARDINO ONIRICO, IL - COMPLESSO K MMXIII
ATARAXIA - NOSCE TE IPSUM
ATARAXIA - LOST ATLANTIS
THE WATCH - TRACKS FROM THE ALPS
ARCHANGEL - TALES OF LOVE AND BLOOD
DEVIL DOLL - ELIOGABULUS

I think there might be a couple of others, will report back once I've had a chance to play through them a little!

Sagi, I've got the Kingdom Come one on the way too!

Guys, after the recent discussion about the second Delirium album, after giving it a listen on the way home tonight, I can say that I think it's a very fine album! It's a mixed bag, for sure, one or two poppy numbers mixed with really daring instrumental works. That longer third track is full of really interesting ideas that they seem a little unsure of how to develop, but to be fair, there's not actually a bad track on the whole disc! I think I've unfairly dismissed it a little to harshly all this time!

The GIARDINO ONIRICO and Devil Doll Albums are really great.

The Watch is to much of a Genesis clone for me.

Archangel is hard rock AOR with awfull vocals, not for me.

Wow you are going for classical Neo Folk with ATARAXIA???

I love quite some stuff in this direction, but I can't stand
Francesca Nicoli voice (I like operatic vocals normaly).
Somehow her voice make my teeth hurt

Thank you H for your (brutally?!) honest thoughts!

Yes, I think I've taken a risk on a few of them, so I'll keep an open mind and hope for the best!

Wish me luck!

Archangel has Damian Wilson (Threshold and Headspace), Zachary Stevens (ex- Savatage) and Ted Leonard (Enchant, Spock's Beard)as guests on vocals. So not all vocal parts might be awfull (just heared a few samples.

I always take chances and was rewarded many times if it Comes to italian stuff. And everything is a matter of taste, so hopefully you will like it.

Mate, I spent the last 24 hours playing this album over and over (for better or worse!), and wrote up a sudden review of it:

http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=1164601

I think I appreciate the talent of the main composer rather than actually really love the album....

Maybe I heared samples of the first album instead of this one,
I wasn't aware that it was already their second.

Still I think there is much better stuff from Italy. I'm spinning
the first CD from the CAP Book now and really like it so far.

Attention RPI team and fans, 
On CAP's Il Teatro delle Ombre 4CD extravaganza, three people were chosen to preface the album and yours truly has written an English intro/dedication.  
I am honored to personally know these lovely Italians, true world-class people! Clap
