Art Rock Show – Mad Fellaz III (Week 14)
Deze week wordt de spits afgebeten door de Italiaanse band Mad Fellaz. De groep is afkomstig uit Bassano del Grappa (Vicenza) en werd in 2010 opgericht. Mad Fellaz maakt originele muziek waarbij het zich laat inspireren door symfonische rock bands uit het verleden.
Prog Archives review: “They are acting true to their line of approach again. No, not driving themselves mad, or even us, to make sure, for example due to a weird cover image. But delivering melodic and accessible prog songs, showing finesse and uniqueness, nearly being without equal. They are utilizing a short warm up during the opening track, and then the second part Frozen Side and the following Leaf will present them in full blow, eh … that’s exactly what I dared to hope. Formidable! Liquid Bless then sounds like coming from the prospering US band Umphrey’s McGee being at their best. As for the mellower parts, for example when Rudy Zilio fetches his flute or saxophone, they are close to the likes of Big Big Train.
Diverse unpredictable moves are to notice, which after some time qualify as genius compositional skills, you bet! Hence I’m on the way now to make sure that the closing song Sweet Silent Oblivion will remain anything but this, what the title may provoke, for whatever reason. My favourite excerpt, Luca Brighi in best shape, as one aspect. This one covers so much, I would say all their skills at once! A highly entertaining album, disappointment solely will come up when this is running out. But there’s a chance for a retake anyway, yeah, no problem! Awesome production. This year’s session starts very very promising, just let me declare the first masterpiece in 2019.”
