The Rock Alchemists: Elements

The Rock Alchemists are an Italian rock band with a mature grounded sound and a soulful singer who never attempts to burst out in front of the superbly crafted arrangements. The second track "A-Matrix" is a prime example of strong but steady rock semi-ballad that memorializes the devastating earthquake that hit the Italian town of Amatrice in the 2016.

Yet this band does not rest on straight-ahead rock and roll and delves into alt-rock with the track "Cars," one of three tracks devoted to speed car racing, a major devotion of the band members. In "Phoenix" they digress to progressive metal in the Fates Warning flavor and pull off my favorite song of Elements which is full of moody harmonics and a committed vocal performance.

With "27" the second track about speed racing on the album, the band is in high gear with a rousing rock 70's retro number full of lyrical automobile adventure and excellent rhythm guitar work. The slow tempo "Eclipse" nearly brings the album to a close with grunge-like atmospherics and emotional wandering. Excuse the pun but The Rock Alchemists have all the elements for major success but must find an audience willing to open its heart to a wider range of musical composition.
