4 stars Honestly the debut album of Ingranaggi Della Valle actually left me cold, so I didn't have great expectations on this second release. Probably if I hadn't seen Cthulhu mentioned in the titles of two tracks I wouldn't spend anything on that.

HOW I WAS WRONG...

This is an excellent album, dark, atmospheric and with some parts that may classfy the band in the RIO subgenre. Excellently played, full of musical ideas and most of all, able to raise in my mind the sensations that I feel when I read Lovecraft, which is a very difficult task in which very few artists succeeded. But the track that conquered me definitely is Ayida Wedo, which includes a great flute part played by Paolo Lucini, one of the guests artists. On the other tracks there's some good mellotron, anyway.

What else? My Zeuhl receptors have been triggered a couple of times, but more than once I've had the remote impression of the presence of Thierry Zaboitzeff. The voice of Davide Savarese is a perfect fit, and his performance is excellent.

This is one of the best albums I've listened to in 2019, three years after its release, but it's never too late to discover good music, and this is very good.
