AltrOck Productions first releases for 2014
The Italian AltrOck Productions and Fading Records labels have announced their first releases for 2014. AltrOck proudly present Factor Burzaco – III, whilst Fading Records release Syndone – Odyssèas.
Argentine RIO/Avant proggers Factor Burzaco release their third album and the second on the AltrOck label…
It’s a sort of dreamlike journey in which adventurous music and emotions come together. Carolina Restuccia’s vocal extension and interpretation is as usual astonishing: intriguing, mysterious, dark and shining at the same time. Fans of RIO and not conventional progressive-rock will be delighted for sure! Cannot miss it!
The second release, through Fading Records, is Syndone’s fifth album and their third since reuniting back in 2010. Joining Nik Comoglio (keyboards), Riccardo Ruggeri (vocals), Francesco Pinetti (vibraphone) are Marco Minnemann (drums) and John Hackett (flute).
Odysseas is the fifth album of the renewed Syndone, new prog folk band active during the early ’90s, back in action with the reunion of 2010. A fascinating concept album dedicated to travel and discovery , enhanced by collaborative efforts and to cover A Oriente (1979 ) by Lorenzo Alessandri, one of the most important exponents of surrealism Italian painting. Compared to Melapesante (2010) and La Bella è la Bestia (2012), Odysseas shows a band still more decisive, firm and tight-knit, which provides an updated and dynamic symphonic prog-rock ’70s.
