Profusion - One Piece Puzzle (2006)
The debut album from this Italian band.
Profusion is a sextet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, flute, keyboards and English vocals.
Two guests added bass, flute and female vocals to this album.
Profusion is one of those bands who do not fall into this Rock Progressive Italiano (RPI) genre. This despite of their music being progressive rock.
The reason is that Profusion is playing Anglo-Saxon symphonic prog. Prog not based on Italian culture and music. Their lyrics are also English.
Take some Gentle Giant, add Yes and Genesis. That is when you get this band.
Their music is very lush and melodic. It is like a garden full of the strangest looking flowers.... and smells. The music is also a bit heavy at times.
This album is a bit of a smorgasbord of weird and strange symphonic prog. Symphonic prog anno the noughties. The vocals is very good, both the male and female vocals. The music is very good too. What is really missing is a great track. There is none.
This is a very good one hour of progressive rock and one album to check out.
