3 stars Italian band FUNGUS was formed back in 2002, and following some years of line-up alterations in between the release of two EPs and their initial full-length debut album the band settled with their current line-up in 2007. Since then two more studio albums have been issued from the band. The most recent of these is "Faces of Evil", which was released through Black Widow Records' partner label Bloodrock Records in 2013.

Retro-oriented '70s hard rock with traditional guitar and organ combinations is the foundation for Fungus' material on their third studio album "The Face of Evil". The compositions tend to alternate between gentler and harder edged sections, and in terms of structure the band arguably relates stronger to progressive rock than a few others due to this aspect as well as some instances of multiple themes and other details of a more sophisticated nature. Still, the end result is one I'd assume will appeal first and foremost to those who love that '70s organ-flavored hard rock sound, and then especially those amongst them with an affection for progressive rock as well.
