Roverart - Labyrinth (2018)
The debut album from this Italian band.
Roverart is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, mandolin, flute, Hammond organ, guitars and English vocals.
Italy has come up with and is still coming up with a lot of bands who is seeking their inspirations and musical landscapes in the 1970s.
That does not necessary means taking inspirations from their native RPI scene.
Roverart has taken their inspirations from bands like Kansas, Deep Purple and Jethro Tull. That is something they gladly admit in their CD Baby page.
That is also something the listener very easily picks up from listening to this album.
The sound is really good and the music is medium to pretty hard. The band rocks off a lot. There are also some more quiet pieces of music here.
Most of the album is pretty hard and is really in the 1970s hard rock mode. The vocals are very much in the 1970s mode and ditto for most of the instruments too. This album has a very good vibe.
The music on this forty minutes odd album is good and it should bring a smile to most people's face.
Check it out.
