Illusion Of Gravity - Too Late (2020)

The debut album from this Italian band.

The band is a quintet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

The band is from Turin in the north of Italy and they are a new band to me.

Italy has a very rich progressive rock tradition called RPI - Rock Progressive Italiano. Illusion of Gravity plays progressive rock and it would be easy to put this band in this genre, the RPI genre.

It would also be totally wrong.

Illusion Of Gravity gives us forty minutes of muscular neo-prog. A lot of the music is clearly hard prog. Modern hard prog. 

Hard but also melodic with the usual neo-prog sensitivities. 

The vocals are good and the band has a lot of interesting details in their music. 

This is not a sparkling great debut. Nevertheless, this band and album is a good addition to the Italian neo-prog scene. A very good scene these days and this album is not letting the scene down.

Check out this solid, good album.
