Format: Audio CD
Metamorfosi was considered one of the greats of Italian prog. In 1972, they released their debut album, ...E Fu Il Sesto Giorno, which is not usually a highly regarded album (I haven't heard that one), but it's their 1973 followup, Inferno that's highly regarded as the classic, must-have. Both their albums were released on the Vedette label, not exactly a well-known label. Anyway, Inferno is a concept album, based on Dante's Divine Comedy. The group consists very much as you expect in prog, keyboards (Hammond organ, piano, Moog, harpsichord), vocals, bass, drums, but very little, if any guitars. The overall sound is something like a cross-between ELP and Banco, the Banco comparisons, no doubt coming from vocalist Jimmy Spilateri who has a similar operatic voice to Banco's Francesco di Giacomo. There's often a dark and sinister sound throughout the album. There are some rather intense jams, experimental passages, and more mellower passages. There are 16 cuts on the whole CD which all segue together, which means the band doesn't stick to one thing too long. It's been stated that both Soviet and American National Anthems are played here on this album, but many listeners say they don't notice it. Well you have to listen carefully, this ain't Gentle Giant playing "God Save the Queen" or Hendrix playing "The Star Spangled Banner" here, it one one of those experimental passages where keyboardist Enrico Oliviera plays mangled versions of the U.S. and Soviet National Anthems on the Moog, and they are short.

Regardless, this album is highly regarded as one of the greats of Italian prog rock, and I can't argue with that, this comes essential to anyone's collection!
