Spettri - Spettri (2011)



The one and only album from this Italian band.

Don't be fooled by the 2011 release date. The album was recorded and then shelved in 1972. It was probably recorded as a kind of demo as the sound is not particular good. It has a demo/bootleg sound quality.

The music is on the heavy prog side. Take a great deal of Deep Purple and some Led Zeppelin. Then you get this album. There is a lot of Hammond organs here. That and some raw powerful Italian vocals. Add some raw unpolished guitars, bass and drums to the proceedings too. Then you get the picture.

The songs are not particular interesting. They are pretty standard heavy rock from that time. What sets the band apart is that they are from Italy and mugs like myself buys everything Italian. Hence this review.

This is a decent forty minutes long album and nothing more than that.
