Asgard - Imago Mundi (1993)

The third of in total five albums from this Italian band.

I have actually reviewed two of their albums in ProgArchives back in 2011. Somehow, this album has slipped through the cracks. Maybe because I do not rate their music.

Their music is a mix of neo prog and prog metal. The music is mostly very bombastic. Their lineup is the normal keyboards, guitars, bass, drums and English vocals. Asgard is a five piece band, btw.

The music is more on the heavy/prog metal side than neo prog on this album. Very standard heavy metal too with a lot of keyboards and guitars. Magnum springs to mind plus a lot of German heavy metal band. What is missing is the football terraces chants. Well, not missing. I cannot stand it. But you get my drift.

I am by no means a fan of this type of noisy racket. Or music as someone else would label it as. There is no originality and no imagination here. There is no real good tracks either. Just some sporadic good melodies. The sound is good though. The end result is somewhere between decent and good. But you are not missing out on anything here.
