2 stars Abiogenesi is a band I listened all their albums (with exception of their latest one Impetus Insectorum) and after 4 albums I can't quite say why. It's just sometimes, especially in my early years, I liked to listen a band's discography album by album if possible (still do that). Some bands I don't like their music right away and I don't go further, some bands like Abiogenesi I don't quite like, but I have the hope they'll do better in future albums. Sometimes this is truth, sometimes, like in Abiogenesi's case, not really. Io Sono Il Vampiro (2005) is their third album and I don't think I'm going to listen their newest after all. Abiogenesi is one of this bands that were never able to get free from the 'they're OK' chains. You know what I mean right? Bands that record good albums but fail in achieve a greater sound or fail to go further and challenge some boundaries in their music. In Io Sono Il Vampiro (2005) that's what we have, a band that works well, with an ok production, ok musicianship and a songwriting that is above average, and that kills the album! Their music is quite gloomy and somber, as in all of their albums, and it's all about mood, but again, as a soundtrack (as sometimes it seems to be the goal) it would never work but doesn't work as a standard Prog album neither.

If you like some gloomy/somber Prog with 90's sound, go for it. But I would choose something else.
