Daemonia is a brand new Italian instrumental progressive rock band from legendary keyboardist Claudio Simonetti (formerly of Goblin fame) who has surrounded himself with young musicians which gives a more updated sound.
Starting off "Live... or Dead" are some fresh pumping studio renditions of both the Halloween and The Exorcist (Tubular Bells) themes. The rest of the songs are a wonderful heartfelt tribute to the great Italian horror director Dario Argento, of which Claudio's former band Goblin provided such classic progressive rock tracks featured in "Profundo Rosso", "Suspiria" & "Inferno". Upon listening to this album, brought back memories of those classic Argento films (of which I always enjoyed) and it was amazing to hear the updated versions.
Well with all this praise I guess it's needless to say that I really like this cd. There's so much excellent music on this album, and those at Progwest are in for a treat indeed! Please support great music and BUY this CD ASAP!
