FABIO ZUFFANTI with his many projects, can be considered
as the prog mastermind of nowadays: La Maschera di Cera, Hostsonaten, Finisterre, La Zona, Aries...his visiting cards!
Of all his works, ARIES eponimous debut is one of the most
romantic, mellow, soft and delicate symphonic prog efforts.
Still exciting for the master use of keyboards and
appreciable synth' solos.
On about the music' structure: a whole album dedicated
to an interesting mix between classical ethereal and
atmospheric symphonic prog within more commercial
parts as, mainly, in the feminine sad (and beautiful)
Two long compositions as the self-explanatory
"The Eye of the Storm" (12'55")
and the epic "When Night Is Almost Done" (16'53").
Great musical journeys enriched by use of electric guitar.
Pure symphonic pleasure.
Incredible but true: still another little gem from
this "so-much-prolific" italian guy.
