Prog Reviewer
2 stars The music held in here is quite special. Nothing to do with the classic symphonic Italian great music.

"Sul Monte E Il Tuono" features a few of these great items but the overall mood is more a combination of folkish styles, dark ambient partitions and heavy atmospheres. This album is more of a "concept" item which would only features one track of forty five minutes. There are hardly any break between each song , nor any theme change.

The music that can be found here is not too bad but frankly, don't expect too much from this offering. Female vocals are not always a guarantee of grandiose songs... At least, it is the impression that I have while I am listening to this album.

Few emotions, little fragrance, no grandeur at all IMHHO. The whole of this work is plagued with a bunch of weak vocals and average instrumental parts. It is hard to find a true and faithful track that could hold the flag a little higher.

In all, this album is a mix of some good organ play combined with poor vocals. Harmony, passion, feeling are alien to this work. You only need to listen to "Scela" or " Lo Sciamano Di Sackalin" to get it confirmed.

This work is quite difficult to depict, but I tried as hard as I could. You shouldn't bother with this release, for sure. Two stars is a maximum rating for this "Dunwich" debut.
