3 stars 3.5 really

Gran Torino from Verona - Italy really impressed me with their first release from 2011, now is time for their second offer issued not long ago in agust 2013.

Fate of a thousand worlds is the name of the seconf album and is another worthy release in progressive/jazz fusion world. The music this time , is to my ears little more towards fusion then on previous album very similar with Plant X, Derek Sherinian solo albums, LTE, well not bad at all, the musicins playing with an amazing ease, all album is instrumental. Lots of keybords melted with guitar passages, quirky drumming, tight rhythmic section, definetly a winner in my book. A good album that desearves attention, but I do feel that I like little bit more their first one more then Fate, here the passages are more edgy more crunchy, but not bad at all, nice instrumental jazz fusion album with some prog elements thgrown in for a good measure. Excellent art work made by one of the most talented artist around Ed Unitsky responsable for art work from The Flower Kings, The Tangent, Azazello, Anima MUndi, etc.
