4 stars Sinestesia is a contemporary italian band from Trieste that released their self titled debut in 2007. Unfortunately, during this year they hadn't had any recognition in this site and what a pity 'cause the album is very well produced (Immaginifica label, owner Franz Di Cioccio of PFM). Singer's accent (he sings in english) is competent (he seems John Bon Jovi, though). I mean that his accent sounds better than what other bands get us used to.

Maybe the most relevant problem for the italian prog bands is how to get their name spread outside of Italy. I don't know. Someone here are very well appreciated by foreigners as for example the neoprog glory The Watch ot the sympho-classic La Maschera di Cera. The main problem remains, though and the only thing we can do is to encourage people to buy some of this wonderful stuff.

So you won't find the Sinestesia's name in the long collaborators' top 100 that has been recently published in the forum. Anyway, the band sounds good. Very good.

They play prog metal with a strong (at times) symphonic accent. I'm not an expert of the genre so I would like to know a more specific opinion. Notwithstanding I feel this music is very hard, enjoyable and, above all, with a superb technic approach on arrengements and guitar soli sometimes recalling me prog metal miliar stone Dream Theatre some others canadian mythic band Rush.

Highly recommended. Believe me.
