4 stars S91 from Italy was a nice discovery for me somewhere in summer last year while searching for some new bands to discover from bandcamp page. These italians really made an more then ok album, at least for me. This is the first full lenght album issued in 2011 named Volonta Legata, they had an EP released in 2009. So, what about the music, to my ears it sounds like a metalized version of italian symphonic prog, really inspired and complicated songwriting in many parts. The music is overall progressive metal not far from DT school or alike but is melted so well with symphonic prog passages, that in the end these two genres works very well. The band has two female voice working together or separatly + a male voice, all three integrated very well in this type of sound. Very solid musicianship, sprecially I like a lot the keyboards, pieces like title track or the mini epic The Seal Of The Living God clocking around 18 to me are quite excellent, even the origibality lacks. A band that gone under the radar in prog metal circles, this is a fairly good debut that must be praised little more, S91 has plenty of talent to go further and crating some even better album then Volonta legata. Since then to me is a 4 star album, nice art work, album available on their bandcamp page digital or CD.
