Eurasia - Il Mondo Arovescio (2017)
The debut album from this Italian band.
Eurasia is a quintet with a lineup of keyboards, bass, guitars, drums and Italian vocals.
They have got help from some guest musicians who has added their trumpet, keyboards, viola, violin and cello to this album too.
This album was released without much fanfares on a small record label and I know nothing about them as their promo blurb is in Italian. It will be added to Progarchives asap is the only thing I know from a conversation with Mr. RPI; Andrea Parentin about this band.
The music on this album is Rock Progressive Italiano, RPI..... But in a wider sense.
Take a big chunk of Canterbury prog (Caravan etc) and add some RPI, Frank Zappa, Area and Picchio Dal Pozzo too. Then add some very old Italian Europop too.
The music is very jazzy in a prog rock sound. There is some half acoustic guitars, keyboard and lots of very good male Italian vocals here. Vocals which is very theatrical. The French band Ange springs to mind as a good reference when it comes to the vocals.
The music on this one hour long album is actually good. It has a good, very good vibe and really rocks out. The organ sound also adds a lot of quality. I am impressed and want more music from this band. Check out this album !
