Gareth Page Lazily branded as being in the style of Emerson, Lake and Palmer and Jethro Tull, Nymphae is so much more. Yes, the opening bars of Caccia alle steghe may sound like Works-era ELP but I'm reminded of more classic RPI bands, Celeste and Semiramis. Released in the 90s at the beginning of the third phase of prog, the vocals (especially) but also the strong melodies call to mind early Marillion and even Trespass-era Genesis.
A great record that deserves more attention. I'd love to own this on vinyl Favorite track: La via della seta.

about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

A classic new progressive band, their music, evolved between
JETHRO TULL and ELP, is built on some precious flute passages. LETHE made just one album, but what an album!
Very long and refined tracks, with melodic sophistication and
great instrumental research.
Instrumental prog on the level of ATLAS' classic "Blå Vardag".
