If you love old school Deep Purple/Uriah Heep style hard rock with some gritty organ and great vocals, you will be very pleasantly surprised by this release. The guitars of Andrea Ciccomartino and Francesco Zagarese are perfect for the material, sounding somewhere between Ritchie Blackmore's chunky riffs and Alex Lifeson's love affair with the arpeggio in jams like the one at the end of "Two in a World". Andrea's muscular voice is possibly the band's greatest asset, although the lyrics betray a less than perfect understanding of English with lines like "Our throne will never be sit / our place will never see us." Unless you are a stickler for your lyrics its not a big issue-Deep Purples lyrics were never anything more than an excuse for Ian Gillan to sing anyway. This is a band to watch if you enjoy some prog in your hard rock. - Sea Of Tranquilty
