Jori : The demo ‘Rising’ of this Roman group caused a bit of an upstir in the underground last year according to the promo sheet, all 150 copies sold out fast with special interest from Germany and Japan. The following EP ‘Where the Time Dwelt In’ showcases a slightly dark coloured form of heavy metal, with a singer reminding somewhat of a young Chris Boltendahl (Grave Digger). The songs are quite long, varying from four and a half minute to eight minutes, not counting the intro. The eight minute one, ‘On A Prisoners’ Tale’, reveals a special talent for composing versatile pieces of music, quite a lot happens in this song, yet it remains very listenable. This is a band we might hear more from in the future.
