Bacio Della Medusa. Il - Deus Lo Vult (2012)

The third album from this Italian band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, piccolo, saxophones, theremin, flute, harp and vocals.

This band is not particular productive. Nevertheless, each of their four albums has put the band on the map as one of the best new RPI bands out there.

Rock Progressive Italiano is an own genre and it can have a lot of various expressions.

Il Bacio Della Medusa mixes up English and Italian folk rock with some occult hard rock and a lot of RPI.

The music has a mix of harsh sounds and more pastoral and epic sounds. The vocals is a mix of pastoral and harsh. The folk rock and the flutes reminds us a lot about Jethro Tull and that also goes for some of the music.

The music is still RPI and takes a lot of inspirations and sounds from the old RPI scene from the 1970s.

The end result is a rather short album clocking in at just over half an hour. But there is no dead wood here and not a waste of time here. This album packs a punch and it hits home.

This is a good album and well worth checking out.
