Barock Project play some very emotional Symphonic Prog, very much in the Italian tradition, and they do it well. The six tracks on this album are all great, the musician's performances being excellent. Luca Pancaldi is a very good singer, somewhat reminding me of Le Orme's Aldo Tagliapietra, but better.
This album being a demo, I do not know if it can be purchased. Go to the band's website using our direct link to download some music and perhaps to contact them to find out how to get some of their music. Fans of Symphonic Italian Prog should not pass these guys out. Great stuff indeed.
You can hear traces of mid 70’s – era Genesis and PFM. The band plays well together and like in the case of those old masters, no instrument rises on top of another. Classical training can be heard througout the music which makes it a delight to listen.
Barock Project has even dared to use simple and beautiful melodies which are too often forgotten in modern & technical orientated prog.
Being a demo, there are some weaker moments too on the cd but the critizism goes to sound quality, not to the material. When these guys get some serious studio time they will most defenately break big time in progressive rock cirquit. Indeed - great stuff indeed !
