Submarine Silence - Did Swans Ever See God? (2020)

The fourth album from this Italian band.
The band is a trio with a lineup of guitars, keyboards and vocals.
The band was helped out by some guest musicians who provided drums, percussion, flute, bass and vocals.
Submarine Silence started out as a side-project of Moongarden. I believe they, four albums later, is a proper band as Moongarden has been very silent for a long time.
Submarine Silence, despite of the unusual name, gives us Rock Progressive Italiano of the more classic sort. 
The vocals are in English and there are indeed some Brithish classic neo-prog in their sound and music too. They have always had that element in their music.
That is mixed up nicely with the 1970s RPI sound.
That gives us forty-five minutes of pure class and joy. There is no killer tracks here, though. Nevertheless, I enjoy this album as much as I have enjoyed their first three albums.
3.5 points
