3 stars Macroscream is a relativly new and young band in prog folk zone formed in 2006 and releasing one album since now in 2012 named Sisyphus. They are from Italy and the music offered has a strong folk aura combined here and there with some symphonic prog passages. The music is centred around Alessandro Patierno bass lines and his voice and on Gianpaolo Saracino violin. Patierno voice is certanly an odd one , but fiting perfectly here, the violin and the proeminent bass goes hand in hand here. Some mellotron and moog appear to give a more vintage sound, nice and very intresting moments. All pieces are ok most of the time with a plus on epic opening track the title track, clocking around 25 min with lots of tempo changes and very solid musicianship and Foolish Pawns. The instrumental sections are the best here, some of them really solid where the violin and bass make the law, remind me in places of Steeleye Span and on certain extent with the most folkier Jethro Tull around Heavy Horses. A good album towards great but not fantastic, 3.5 is best I can give, in the end a nice release.
