La Bottega Del Tempo A Vapore - Il Guerriero Errante (CD)
Catalog number: M2016-6
“La Bottega del Tempo a Vapore” was formed in Benevento, Italy in 2014, by the fusion among seven souls. The name of the band can be loosely translated as “The Steam-Time Workshop” and their aim is to blend music with poetry, legend and history. Their album “Il Guerriero Errante” (The Wandering Warrior) is a concept album based upon a short story by Alfredo Martinelli that tells the legend of a mysterious Samnite-Longobard warrior. This story is carried on with progressive rock/metal riffs and strong rhythm parts surrounded by epic orchestrations, classical, folk and tribal influences. Inspired by the music of bands such as Banco del Mutuo Soccorso, Premiata Forneria Marconi, Le Orme, Dream Theater, Angra, Liquid Tension Experiment, Epica, Two Steps From Hell, Porcupine Tree, Haken and many others.
The band’s lineup features Alessandro Zeoli (lead guitar), Alfredo Martinelli (libretto and concept), Angelo D’Amelio (keyboards, sax), Angelo Santo (vocals), Gabriele Beatrice (drums), Giovanni Santamaria (classic & electric guitar) and Giuseppe Barbato (bass).
