about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

Hailing from the city of Verona, D.F.A.
(aka Dutu Free Area) were found by three friends in 1991.
As time went by,they moved from rich musicianship
to superb complicated structures with improvisated parts
and released ''Trip on metrò'' in 1995.

Which was enough for the prog community to keep
an eye on them.
''Lavori in corso'' was recorded in early 97' and
presented a band with an amazing and mature musicianship....

D.F.A. come like a cross between GENTLE GIANT,
maybe YES along with mid-70's KING CRIMSON,
delivering complicated arrangements filled with
rich textures,complex parts and earth-shattering interplays.

Things are not that simple of course,as there are numerous
hints of Canetrbury/CAMEL like prog with smooth jazzy
arrangements and melodic passages, while the keyboard
work (except the beautiful mellotron) might seem out of place sometimes,but the synths presented here are no more than
an excellent atmospheric/electronic musical journey.

Only compared to DEUS EX MACHINA's inventiveness
and intensity, D.F.A. belong among the most-talented
music group of the modern-era and ''Lavori in corso''
might end up as a classic through the years to come.

Extremely highly recommended!
