ALBUM : A Sense Of Loss
YEAR: 2009 (October 26th)
LABEL: K Scope
FIVE WORD REVIEW: Try hearing this while smiling
LOCATION: Rome, Italy
LINE UP: Giancarlo Erra (vocals, guitar, keyboard, all round mastermindery) / Paolo Martellacci (keyboard, vocals) / Paolo Vigliarolo (guitars) / Alessandro Luci (upright bass) / Gigi Zito (drums)
WHAT’S THE STORY?: The second release from Erra’s bleak project certainly does what it says on the can, and a massive sense of loss is conveyed. But who said happy music is better anyway?
SOUNDS LIKE: (Dare I say it?) An Italian Porcupine Tree. No, that’s too easy a comparison. Nosound have their own distinct take on neo-prog. The whole album is swathed in haunting violin passages, introspective and reverberated heavy vocals. It seems in no rush to draw out its moroseness and paces along at a slow tempo throughout.
YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF YOU LIKE: Heavy bouts of introspection. And most anything else from the K Scope family.
