In this debut album Nostos they might pack all of things they wanted to do. There are many kinds of with full of heavy riff and frequently altered rhythm, and another with straight rock sound and catchy melody. However, all songs are same at the point that Mario's voice should have strong passion. Well I want to emphasize this point to all listeners! I suggest we can understand their identity and potential with listening to the first track Vendetta. In this song are almost all of their music styles. Exactly, a lump of heavyness, strict rhythm, terrific melody and hot voice. This about-ten-minute song know all of their Italian spirits. They can have a gentle style in the song Terra Madre or play a melancholic keyboard-play in Livia...yes, they should have lots of faces. The longest track in this work Nostos has many short pieces with various waves. Sadly there's not an exploded part like Close To The Edge, so my first hearin' I felt the song so long and slightly flat. But listening again and again, I can always feel their large possibility in future. Of course, they can play well not only their original songs but also a covered track of IL BALLETTO DI BRONZO (La tua casa comoda).

Ubi Maior is now growing, I can realize. Their next work will be absolutely climb up the mountain named Italian progressive rock!
