A.S.T.R.A - Il Tempo Del Tempio (1984)
The one and only album from this Italian band.
This band was a sextet from Trieste in Italy. Their lineup was synths, guitars, bass, drums, electric piano and piano.
That is the only think I know about this band, I am afraid. This review has been on my to-do list for the last two years but I have not had the guts to get on to it before now.
The music is entirely instrumental. The band sounds like a crossover between jazz and Camel.
There is a lot of guitars and synths here. The drums and bass is following up as best as they can. It is pretty clear that this band is not God's gift to the music scene as the band sounds a bit too loose at time.
The sound too is not particular good as it has this terrible 1980s sound.
When that is said, this is not an abysmal bad album. The tracks on this half an hour long album is decent enough and will very much please the Camel fans out there. Check it out if Camel is your thing. Youtube is then your next port of call.
