I always say that, the Italian Progressive Rock scenery has been, and always will be one of the best in the world. As an example, here it is, among some recent revelations arising out of this country, and I would like to present for all friends around the world,  this exceptional, amazing and vibrant band called Sintonia Distorta.

I was very surprised and also very happy, when I heard for the first time about the band's history and their new album. Sintonia Distorta has quite of a successful blend of Progressive Rock, Hard Rock with touches of Prog Metal in some parts of the songs, with these three particular musical styles, they follow in the same line of the best and already established in the Progressive Rock style from Italy. The band show a very powerful sound and an amazing production. They know how develop a sophisticated instrumental, creating brilliant compositions, with hypnotic melodies and powerful lyrics. The compositions are filled of intense guitar works and supported by great atmospheric keyboards layer, showing an intensive drums and including a power full bass. The singer, Simone Pesatori has a fantastic voice that suits this kind of instrumental, and fits perfectly in the arrangements,  revealing a intense musical atmosphere, despite his vocal tone be very strong it does not show aggressiveness. "Frammenti d’Incanto" is the last album of Sintonia Distorta, and a new interesting release from Lizard Records, including ten songs, almost 70 minutes of a musical delight, all the tracks contain a high level of musicianship, without distinguishing of what is the best track on this album. Musically, all songs are well crafted and diverse in tempo and structure, all them features solid arrangements, including the lyrics with strong focus in a power full atmosphere, however, I  have my preferences, of course, I recommend that you must listen all tracks from the album with a special attention, however, I have my favorite tracks and here they are: "Anthemyiees", "Menta e Fragole", "Il suono dei falsi dei", "Il canto della fenice", "No need a show", "I ponti di Budapest" and "Il vento dei pensieri". Sintonia Distorta follows in the same musical line and blending styles from famous bands such as "Il Rovescio Della Medaglia" "Biglietto Per L´inferno", "Banco Del Mutuo Socorso", "Trip", "Il Balletto di Bronzo", "Metamorfosi", "Garybaldi", "Diario Di Viaggio Della Festa Mobile", "Ezra Winston" and "Wicked Minds". Sintonia Distorta has a refined Progressive Hard Rock style, where each song is turned into a stunning surprise. Brilliant and fantastic, an amazing album and band, highly recommendable...
