Sezione Frenante: Metafora di Un Viaggio

From the prog loving folks over at MaRaCash comes Metafora di Un Viaggio, the latest album from Italian progressive rock veterans Sezione Frenante. These guys have been around in one form or another since the early '70s, and much of this latest album will instantly appeal to fans of acts such as PFM, Banco, Locanda delle Fate, Le Orme, and Biglietto per L'Inferno. That's right, gorgeous Italian symphonic prog, littered with soaring vocals, vintage styled keyboards, tasty guitar, fat bass lines, and tight rhythms. Just listen to Mirco de Marchi's commanding Hammond organ & Sandro Bellemo's beefy bass on the excellent "Attesa", or the heavy rock guitar riffs courtesy of Doriano Mestriner doing combat with those lovely keyboards on the engaging "La Quiete in un Attimo". Spectacular stuff. It's also easy to soak in the enchanting Italian vocals of Francesco Nordo, who has a rich, high pitched style that fits right into these classic sounding tunes. Just check out his charming delivery on the lengthy opus "Svegiati Luce", a challenging song that will take you right back to 1972 with its layers of keyboard & guitar passages.

A concept album based on the poetry of Dante Alighieri, Metafora di Un Viaggio is pretty special from start to finish, and a must hear for any fan of lush '70s Italian symphonic progressive rock.
