Samurai Of Prog. The - Archiviarum (2018)


The sixth album from this multi-national band.

The Samurai Of Prog is a trio with a lineup of violin, flute, electric guitars, bass, drums, percussion and vocals. The band members are Steve Unruh, Kimmo Porti and Marco Bernard.
The band has got help from numerous other musicians and vocalists. Brett Kull and Stefano Lupo Galifi is the ones I know most.

This is a project and re-recording of some more or less known classic symphonic prog and RPI songs and suites. Yes, the vocals are in English, Italian and Spanish here.

I am not entirely into this Decameron trio of albums. But I have been told a lot of the songs on this album has been lifted from # 1 , # II and # III of that series. Maybe I should check them out.... These thirteen hours of symphonic prog.

The seventy minutes of music on this album is a mix of long songs and instrumental pieces. The vocalists does a good job and ditto for the musicians.

Not all of this album captures my imagination and there are some pieces here I can live without. On the other side of the coin... There are also some very good stuff here too. In short, this is a good album and well worth checking out.
