    A lost group from the progressive rock movement of Italy in the 1970's that has finally seen the light of day with the recent reissue of their only album, 1972's self titled album. The group included Robert Deller (keyboards, vocals), Massimo Pravato (guitar, bass), and Umberto Maschio (drums). They left Italy after forming for Germany where they took up residency in Munich where they recorded their album. Massimo Pravato was killed in a car accident in 1973. The album was released in 1974 only in Germany and until last years reissue of the album on CD it was forgotten and went largely unnoticed.

    Their self titled album is good example of a solid hard prog with nice keyboard work Noteable for in an era that had many 'short' albums the album was lengthy clocking in at over 46 minutes.

    The group is worth a listen. Would recommend only to those who have money to burn and are looking for really hidden albums in the Rock Progressivo Italiano genre. That said.. having owned the reissue for about six months.. it still get regular rotation. Good group and wouild have liked to have seen what they might have followed this up with.
