The history of this Italian band goes back to the year 1988.
But this first version of the band, which already included
original members Fabrizio Sicuteri and Federico Ruoppolo,
was playing hard rock in those early days.
Soon they got interested in progressive rock.
After having made a demo and some member changes,
the new version of Ancestry got a deal with Mellow Records.
With “Discendenze” the band presents their first full worthy prog-album.
Their style is a mixture of typical Italian prog music which is
melodic and mellow.
As Genesis, Yes, Marillion and PFM, the Ancestry prefer an
address "choral", avoiding unnecessary frills solutions solo
Generally they are the keyboards to lead, but the rhythmic
sound is not restricted to follow, but embellishing with cues
and good ideas.
Also the guitarist Venturini does a great job.
