3 stars Scolopendra is the debut album of the italian trio "Gli Alluminogeni". The band got the name from the leader, Patrizio Alluminio, student at the academy of music of Vercelli and graduated in piano.

The main feature of the seven compositions is the typical sixties flavour of both vocals and instrumental passages. This gives the impression of a dated work, unlikely to the band's other contemporaries.

Notwithstanding, the music is very well composed, recorded and arrenged and it's based upon the majestic hammond organ of Alluminio (sometimes church organ as in the heavy psychedelic "Thrilling") and raw electric guitar. It's not a concept album but the recurring themes are nature and cosmos. The title track is a wonderful soft-blues ballad.

Andrea Cortese | 3/5 |
