4 stars Italian band IL GIARDINO ONIRICO (IGO hereinafter) was formed in 2008, initially as a four-man unit, but fairly soon expanding to the six-man strong ensemble they are today. Following an initial self-released production, "Complesso K" from 2010, the band signed to the Italian label Lizard Records, which released their official debut album "Perigeo" in 2012.

IGO comes across as a fairly eclectic band, able to and with the talents to explore multiple styles with an expert hand, and impressively so by incorporating multiple styles into each and every compositions. As harder edged sequences either bordering on or residing safely within the progressive metal realm are a recurring feature, a certain affection for this kind of music is needed to be able to enjoy this album, and a taste for bands like Porcupine Tree wouldn't be amiss either. If you can subscribe to this, and suspect you'll enjoy a band that may venture everywhere from jazz to cosmic-tinged ambient sections as well, "Perigeo" is a production you probably should spend some time getting familiar with.
