NEW TROLLS - SEARCHING FOR A LAND
NEW TROLLS are:
Vittorio De Scalzi- Guitars, flute, keyboards (Arp 2600) and vocals
Nico Di Palo- Guitars and lead vocals
Frank Laugelli- Bass guitar
Maurizio Salvi- Keyboards (Hammond), piano, synt
Gianni Belleno- Drums and percussions
This is a little "guinness record" album: it is the first italian double album, with first disc in studio and the second live (for much time people knows that this is the first live album of an italian band, but in reality the public rumors are not real but it's a studio effect, so this second disc is not really a live record). Even if this upload is from a cd version that encludes two albums, i prefer restore the original form of two discs, because they are very different: the first is one of better exemples of italian prog rock (Songs from 1 to 7) and the second is a great hard rock album, with hard Purple influences (Songs from 8 to 11).
This album was realised by label Fonit Cetra for the international market, so it is completely sung in English. So, this time, prog italian with lyrics that all can understand...
Even if all the album is very good, for me the best song is "A land to live, a land to die", with great keyboards and vocals work.
PS: As the other times, i have all discography of New Trolls and related (Ibis, NTAS, Tritons and others). If you like this and you would like to listen some other works by New Trolls, the only thing to make is to go to comments and write something about...
