Track list (in provisional order):
La stanza vuota
Di buio e luce parte seconda
L’alba della civiltà
L’organista del bosco
L’Anno, il posto, l’ora 1972
Italian hard-prog band Odessa’s third album, “L’Alba della civiltà”, published by Lorenzo Giovagnoli and Loris Furlan’s Lizard Records.
The album comes a long way after the acclaimed “Stazione Getsemani” (Mellow Records 1999) and “The Final Day” (Lizard and Andromeda Relics 2009) albums (see https://odessazone.bandcamp.com) and live activity in some of the finest international progfestivals and stages.
“L’Alba della Civiltà” takes its inspiration from the struggle between “Chaos” and “Harmony”, two opposite forces that dynamically fight in the making of human history.
