Description/Reviews:
Five years after “La Zona d’Ombra”, the band released Con Fuoco (With fire).
While Con Fuoco is not a concept album there is nonetheless a thin red line that goes through all the tracks and connects them to a shared theme: resistance against oppressive regimes, past and present.
The album opens with the title track, an instrumental with clear hard rock influences. After the opener the album takes a faster pace and an angry, fighting stance with songs like Rivolta (Revolt), inspired by early 21st century No-Global movements and their struggles and Gea that envisions the rebellion of the cradle of Western culture against the speculations of the latest years. Anger subsides into melancholy in Syrma, inspired by the desaparecidos and the Latin America dictatorships. Syrma is the album’s first long track and probably the most “progressive”, with repeated and sudden tempo changes and melodic, mellower arpeggios dueting with explosive, powerful instrumental sections. The same alternance between slower, mellower passages and frantic, hectic ones is found in Terre di mezzo (Lands in-between), the second long track dedicated to the tragic, unending war between Israel and Palestine, featuring an orchestra finale that is beyond doubt one of the peaks of the whole album.
Con Fuoco’s final track is a 3 part suite which is actually one of the band’s first work dating back to the late 90s: Luna del viandante (The Wanderer’s moon), an intimate and personal track that represets at the same time a departure from the rest of the album and a trip back to the dreamlike, outside-time-and-space atmospheres which are a trademark of Magnolia, atmospheres that enhance and bring at the forefront the crystal clear, poetic and, in this track, stunningly poignant and intense voice of the vocalist.
Once again Magnolia have demonstrated that they walk their own path, far away from traditional labels and genres: a band with Italian lyrics engulfed in a typical British sound, a band that combines a Wilson-esque “kaleidoscope” sound with deeply emotional and socially oriented lyrics akin to some works by Fabrizio De André. In short, a mix that we could call “combat prog.”

Genre(s): Progressive Metal
Label: Pure Prog Records (PPRCD011)
Format: CD, digital
Release date: October 27, 2017

Tracklist:

Total Time 52:05

Line-up:
Marc Nickel – guitars
Jörg von der Fecht – guitars
Haye Graf – vocals
Heiko Spaarmann – bass
Andreas Tegeler – drums

Description/Reviews:
This album starts with WHEN THEY COME, where it's clear the lesson of bands as DREAM THEATER, but developing a deep own style. Changes of time, epic memories, Power accelerations..a really tasty recipe. HEIR TO APOSTASY starts heavier and goes on with an enjoyable metal riffing, with a more open singing, clear sign of ability of singer HAYE GRAF.
IMMORTAL PROJECTION is a point forward compared to previous songs..continuous changes of time, singing more thoughtful. Almost nine min duration for PARANOIA, an awesome song that it pulls the listener in a paranoic horde before guitars finally take over.
The work goes on with three great songs as MACBETH, SENSE AND SCIENCE and EMBER, before the break of ELEMENTUM, a great instrumental. SHIPWRECKED is the last drop of high class.

Description/Reviews:
... and the style is similar to bands like Jethro Tull with flutes and that sort of thing. “Hippie rock” is probably a decent way to describe what you get to hear when you listen to this album for over seventy minutes, and Francis the lady who sings manages to sing in both German and English making the album feel a bit exotic even – as they always do when you get to hear the lyrics sung in odd languages.

Description/Reviews:
Strawbs in their later, more prog, mode were sometimes compared to the likes of Moody Blues and even Supertramp. ‘The Ferryman’s Curse’ continues the acoustic pastoral vibe infused with occasional bursts of more frenetic guitar. It’s an easy and rewarding listen with highlights ‘The Nails From The Hands Of Christ’, ‘The Familiarity Of Old Lovers’, Lambert’s showcase ‘The Ten Commandments’ and the title track.

Description/Reviews:
Brown Spirits is an outfit from Melbourne featuring veterans of the garage punk euro-touring circuit. This LP offering was recorded to 1/4 inch tape and mixed on home turf, collating a love of Hammond-driven kraut-laden psych jams, downtempo beats and atmospheric guitar noise inspired by the Italian library/soundtrack genre. Think Guru Guru meets Floyd circa '69 with a dash of benzo-riddled insanity from a vintage super 8 'adult' film and you start to get the picture!

Description/Reviews:
Gregorian Rock is nothing if not distinctive, combining "...ancient with modern to create a serene yet pummeling sound." This is a band that has few peers in the prog garden; perhaps not a "one-of-a-kind," but absolutely not a follower in a long line of carbon copy, stamped-out, melodious, predictable bands. Gregorian Rock looks at prog rock--and music in general--through an entirely different lens..

Although Celtic influenced and comprised of a number of re-workings of Irish folk tunes and Breton aires, the album is still in large part new and original Echo Us music that fits right in the Echo Us ‘canon’. “Wake” is a natural progression from “A Priori Memoriae”, which was released to critical acclaim in Europe in 2014.

Description/Reviews:
Magia Nera was founded in the late '60s around La Spezia: the band shows since the beginning a clear inspiration dark progressive rock. In 1973, the band was chosen by Genovese musician Aldo De Scalzi, for the recording of an album under his newly record label Magma. In addition, he was planning a tour around Italy as the opening act of the New Trolls. The band recorded a demo with songs for a whole LP, but the van delivering it to the record company caught fire unexpectedly, destroying all analog tapes. After that the band broke up. Now after more than 40 years, thanks to the enthusiasm of producer Giorgio Mangora, the band finally made their record.

Description/Reviews:
After the intro the pace remains high for a while, with the hacking riffs of the title track, Metallica influences in the thrash-like ‘Endlessly Falling’, smooth rocking in ‘Savage’ and the low-tuned chunky guitars in ‘The Nameless Apparition’. All these tracks are graced with eminent guitar solos, accordingly to the song going from wild and fervent to emotive and soaring.

Description/Reviews:
Musically, they remind me a bit of a mix of Steven Wilson and Roger Waters. The Waters comparison comes from the overall message in the album “Power” and lead vocalist Steven Rogers, who’s delivery is a LOT like Waters.... The music for the most part is mid-tempo progressive pop rock with mostly solid hooks which is fine but gets a little repetitive after a while.

Description/Reviews:
Here, the heavier, more distorted interjections are more warm and wooly than savage and saw-toothed, and the pedal work is generally more diverse and nuanced, shifting by degrees from sleek and affable guitarmonies to more concussive riffing.
Boosted by this improved dynamic range, Trees on Mars rove through post-rock, prog and metal and with beaming enthusiasm.

Description/Reviews:
“Il Sole alle Spalle” inherits the typical characteristics of records that have left their mark as “Spettacolo annullato”, “Hotel Brun” and “La Soluzione semplice”: typically Italian interpretation and melody, always appealing songs length, with the indispensable 15-minutes suite, the conclusive title track, which knows how to unfold in different images and moments, from the most symphonic and rocking to the most delicate breath of acoustic guitars, piano and flute.
Just the flute of Eleonora Montenegro becomes a distinctive element for the traits of greater lightness and sweetness, until folkish Celtic digressions (there is also a tin whistle for the occasion).
