First self-titled album of Italian Art Rock band Il Bacio della Medusa, that was formed in 2002 by Simone Cecchini (vocals, 6 & 12-string acoustic guitar), Federico Caprai (bass) and Diego Petrini (drums, keyboards).
In December 2003 Simone Brozzetti (guitar) and Eva Morelli (flute, sax) joined the band and in 2004 released this debut album, characterized by obscure and poetical lyrics combined with an intersting mix of hard rock, progressive, songwriting and ethnic/folk music. Heavy stoner riffs, fast-paced bass and drums are intertwined with emotionally engaging lyrics, dreamy melodies of flute and colored by interventions sparkling saxophone, organ and accordion.
The band’s style is unique and recognizable from the first album: the impressive variety of sounds of the issues addressed in the songs evoke a quick and kaleidoscopic succession of images, sensations and emotions in the listener.
The CD version contains the song “OrienteOccidente” recorded live in 2010 at Rockin’Umbria Festival.
