4 stars Fascinating release by this Italian band.

The band obviously has it's roots firmly based in the 70's, and are quite fond of using very 70's sounding hard rock guitar chops in the songs. They are just as fond of using keyboards to deliver symphonic touches to the songs; mixing guitar chops with melodic guitar playing and soloing, using lots of piano partly instead of and partly in addition to more regular synths, and enjoys inserting the odd jazz-inspired themes and moods too. That the synths here at times sound like Marillion and Genesis combined; before heading out in Pink Floyd inspired themes makes it even harder to place them.

Quirky song structures with a lot of movement between moods, themes and styles and a sound that at most times comes across as hard rock symphonic rock this is a release mostly for a select crowd. Fans of symphonic rock and hard rock that doesn't mind the slightly dramatic Italian vocals here will most likely enjoy this release.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
