Albero Del Veleno. L' - Le Radici Del Male (2013)

The debut album from this Italian band.

This band with this rather odd band name for us non-Italian speakers, is another new name in this very much flowering Italian prog rock scene. And they both brings a new sound and an old sound from the 1970s back into life again. This time; Goblin get a makeover.

This band is by no means a copycat or have in any way copied Goblin. It is just that they share the same stage, so to speak. We are here deep into dark cinematic instrumental music. The ones that were and still is the sound track to Italian B-movies. Mostly; horror movies.

Thankfully, the music here is much more dynamic than ambient landscapes. It is very dynamic in places and full of life. Splatter-gore life. There is plenty of flutes and lighter instruments here in the sound. Which strangely enough does not makes this album a dark-fest.

The music is though movie-soundtrack type of music and the quality is good. Fans of Goblin beware. This is an album for you. I am not a big fan and I find this album good, but not great. If I need a soundtrack, I will surely re-visit this album again. It is a good album.
