3 stars Divae their first serious gig was as a support act from Italian progrock legend Le Orme in Rome's Palladium in 194. Then the band started to write compositions and end 1995 Divae performed on several festivals: The Marechiaro Blues Festival (along Banco, The Jack Bruce Band and Jefferson Starship), the Palladium in Rome (during a mdley with Gentle Giant songs guitarplayer Gary Green joined Divae on stage) and The Music Of Freedom Festival (with Finisterre and the known Il Balletto Di Bronzo). On this debut CD Il Balletto Di Bronzo keyboardist Gianni Leone and Osanna's Lino Vairetti contribute on one song (Vento Che Va). Divae has two keyboard players, the drummer also plays keyboards so it's no surprise that their music is often keyboard driven with echoes from Banco (Hammond organ) and PFM (flashy synthesizer flights). The music also evokes Gentle Giant and Camel. Strong points are the interplay between the guitarist and the keyboard player, the passionate vocals (with theatrical undertones) and the captivating shifting moods. Their sound is fresh and dynamic, unfortunately Divae turned out to be another promising Italian one shot band.
