Gran Torino - Fate of a Thousand Worlds (2013)



The second album from this instrumental Italian band.

Instrumental prog rock in the borderlands between fusion, prog metal and symph prog is what we get here. Almost an hour full of it. The music is created with guitars, piano, synths, flutes, bass and drums.

The music is at times very heavy and intense. But not as intense as really intense fusion, unfortunate. It still has a lot of fusion incorporated. There is also some avant-garde tendencies here too. Not to mention pretty epic symphonic prog melodies too.

The music is well performed. My main gripe with this good and rather enjoyable album is the lack of any really great tracks that grasps my attention and holds it. There is no such tracks here. Besides of that; this is a fine album well worth checking out.
