about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

The long-aged tradition of Italian symphonic rock with a
definite folk/mediterrenean taste continues through the
90's with GERMINALE...a band found in 1991 in the city
of Pisa.
Although starting their career as a cover band,GERMINALE
soon focused on composing their own material and the
result of these efforts was taped on their self-titled album,
released in 1994,at a time when progressive rock was
returning back
strong in Italy.
There's not much guitar-oriented stuff to be found in here,
as the band's sound is strongly based on flutes,organ and
piano.
Certainly having symphonic leanings,GERMINALE present
also a strong tendency on pastoral musicianship with nice
flutes dominating here and there.Vocals ,where added,are
quite good, supported by sensational grooves and some HACKETT-like electric guitars,but often limited,giving space
to the interactions between the strong rhythm section and organist/pianist Gabriele Guidi.
Generally this is a light symphonic release with straight
comparisons to the 70's Italian scene,especially P.F.M.,
CELESTE, MADRUGADA or REALE ACCADEMIA DI MUSICA.
A well-crafted work,which could be of great interest for fans
of symphonic progressive rock!
