Not a Good Sign is a project by AltrOck and some bands’ members of the label.

Marcello Marinone, Paolo «Ske» Botta and Francesco Zago, after a successful collaboration in Yugen and Ske, propose a new blend of their musical attitudes. The result is an ominous, fascinating sound melting vintage keyboards, powerful guitars and voice, besides ethereal and autumn nuances, supported by a compelling rhythmic drive.

 In 2011 Botta and Zago began to write the music, and Zago provided the lyrics too. Soon Gabriele G. Colombi and Alessio Calandriello, from La Coscienza di Zeno, joined the band. The drummer Martino Malacrida completed the line-up in 2012.

 In these tracks many of you will recognize the Old Prog School from the 70s, but in a modern key, with a pinch of hard-rock and psych. Resonant vocal melodies and lyrics complete the gloomy but colourful imagery of the band.

Personnel:

Paolo «Ske» Botta, keyboards

Alessio Calandriello, vocals

Gabriele Guidi Colombi, bass

Martino Malacrida, drums

Francesco Zago, guitars

 Guests:

Maurizio Fasoli, grandpiano (Yugen)

Sharron Fortnam, vocals (North Sea Radio Orchestra, Cardiacs)

Bianca Fervidi, cello

Available @AltrOck festival June 1st: http://altrockfading.blogspot.it/

I'll definitely give a listen.
Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Not A Good Sign: s/t (Italy-2013).
A very good album. The male voice reminds me of Haken, and the music is classic progressive rock but played in a modern way. I will receive my copy in a few days. Smile
