About Blank - Anthology of A Cave (2019)
The debut album from this Italian band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
A new week and another debut album from an Italian band. Which is a very good start on a new week.
About Blank is another Italian band who does not rely or even tries to sound like the good old Rock Progressive Italiano - RPI - bands from the 1970s.
This is another Italian band whose music is somewhere between indie rock and progressive metal.
Good references are King's X and a bit of Fates Warning. But mostly King's X and some shades of Rush too. Porcupine Tree is also another good reference.
The music is a bit harsh at times with some djent and death metal growls. But there is not much of that.
Most of the music is heavy prog with a lot of youthful enthusiasm.
The quality is somewhere between decent and good. I am not entirely convinced about this one hour long album. But it is a debut album which they can improve on.
