5 stars Seven years after their previous studio album "Capitolo 7 - Tra le Antiche Mura" Il Castello di Atlante is finally back with its latest "Arx Atlantis" celebrating the band's 40th anniversary of music career.

The band took a new path by evolving their sound and recording techniques, giving this new record a whole new level, maybe the highest point they ever reached: mature arrangements together with a fresh and punchy sound are the main ingredients of the 5 tracks featured in "Arx Atlantis".

Aldo Bergamini (guitar, vocals), Andrea Bertino (violin), Davide Cristofoli (keyboards), Paolo Ferrarotti (keyboards, vocals, drums), Dino Fiore (bass) and Mattia Garimanno (drums) painted this dynamic portrait of the most genuine italian progressive rock, telling stories of life experiences through the songs: "Non Ho Mai Imparato", the perfect opener; "Il Vecchio Giovane" the story of an old man that still feels young and tells how important is to still keep on dreaming and open our minds; "Ghino e l'Abate di Clignė" representing a novella from Giovanni Boccaccios' The Decameron - must be noted that this song is featuring Tony Pagliuca (ex-member of the historical band "Le Orme") and will be featured on the compilation "Decameron" for the Finnish progressive magazine "Colossus"; "Il Tempo del Grande Onore" a fresh progressive song with a great orchestration work; "Il Tesoro Ritrovato" a progressive masterpiece where the heart of the musicians can be felt beating underneath the harmony weaving. "Arx Atlantis" turns out to be one of the best album so far by Il Castello di Atlante, a perfect element for every prog lover to have in their music collection.
