about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

''L'oblio'' is a late-nineties album by Italian band Amanita
and although this was their first and only release it's a fairly
mature work consisting of six lengthy tracks, all around the
10- to 14-minute mark.
They're categorised as Prog Folk but there's quite an
aggregation of musical styles here, with several of the
songs having a space-rock vibe and even a bit of Krautrock.
Dynamic vocal sections followed by extended jams are pretty
much the order of the day.
The songs are pushed along by passionate vocals while instrumental sections feature great interplay between flute
and guitar; fellow Italian group Jumbo is probably a reasonable benchmark.
Amanita disappeared after this album and I guess we'll never
know what ''place'' these guys were in when they produced it. Musically it moves from melancholic openings to an experimental conclusion, as if from doubt to darkness. Whatever, this is a fine album invigorated with diverse influences. It's a must for the RPI freaks among us, and Tull fans might well want to check it out too. What a pity these guys only released this one album...
