Art - Asylum (2019)
The second album from this Italian band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of keyboards, synths, guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
I have not heard their first album so I cannot comment on that one. The band was formed in 2016 and the band members are new to the scene.
The band is among the Italian neo-prog bands who does not have that much in common with the good old RPI scene.
There is no relations here to the likes of PFM and Banco.
The band has a lot of the British neo-prog influences. But most of all, their music has a lot of Polish and German neo-prog influences.
There is also some prog metal influences in their music.
The vocals are really good and the music is elegant. The sound is a bit cold. The music has a lot of interesting details.
The songs are somewhere between decent and good. They lack a lot of quality and that is my big gripe about this album.
Nevertheless, check out this album.
