Panthercoisp - Indipendence Two (2013)
The second and final album from this Italian band.
I still have no idea how many members this band had. But I can hear guitars, piano, keyboards, bass, drums and Italian vocals here. Both male and female Italian vocals.
This band later became, quite soon after the release of this album, became Panther & Co, another Italian band who has so far released two albums. Reviews to follow later this winter/you will find reviews of these two albums somewhere else in this blog.
This album is btw a free download through Jamendo.
I was not a fan of their debut album Indipendence One as you can read in my review here. And neither was the band, I have been told. So I did not have much hope for Indipendence Two.
This album is twenty-five minutes long and it is much more a demo than an album. Something I discovered too late to pull my plans to review this album. So I went ahead.....
The music here is a mix of neo-prog and Italian symphonic prog (RPI). The sound is...... well, demo sound. It is not good. But it is still good enough to review this album.
There is a lot of vocals here and some more pastoral pieces without vocals. This is most definate modern RPI and one well worth checking out although I may believe the band disagrees.
The album is short, but it has some good stuff and some less good stuff. It is somewhere between good and decent. Hence my rating of this album.
