    Alphataurus have started working on a new Album, which will again contain some material
    based on unreleased stuff from the 70s.

    New Unreal City disc arrived today. I did already check this one out on Progstreaming but now it's time for a proper spin on my system. I love these guys!

    Count me in as big fan of Entity. "Il Falso Centro" is an awesome Album.

    I wrote to the band and they replied with a link where I can purchase the album. The problem is that to have it shipped to Canada it would cost me more than the cd itself. After that I did notice Greg has it listed on his website. Good call on Entity. I love it.

    As you might know, this is a side project from Fonderia. They are working on a new album as well.

    Did not know about the Fonderia connection, just stumbled over them a short time ago, thanks.

    I did know about Fonderias work on a new album and I'm eagerly waiting for it for quite some time now.

    It Looks like Paolo Tixi left Il Tempio delle Clessidre.

    So if you happen to be a Drummer and live in Italy, there's a Job vacant.

    Osanna started recording an album called "Palepolitana". Sure sounds promising...

    Il Rumore Bianco and FEM both lost their lead vocalists. (maybe they just interchange them )

    Ballo delle Castagne new album: "Soundtrack for an Unreleased Herzog movie" in March
    (there should be also a live/studio recording called "Private Press" don't have any release info on that one)

    It looks like Tony Pagliuca (Le Orme) joined CASTELLO DI ATLANTE. The release of Arx Atlantis will be postponed
    in order to contain new songs and recordings with Pagliuca (who will also appear in Quebec).

    hey fellas, been listening to Deus ex Machina for last 2.5 weeks. nothing else really... cant say enough how amazing these guys are. have Giallo Oro in my cans as we speak. Piras is surely one of the best, only Einar Solberg can come close. Actually their voices are very similar in power and quality. Collina's guitar playing is so refrshing and raw. Trotta's drumming is just pure joy. Puglissi on hammond. OMG! And how technical all of that is. Amazing indeed. Any rumours of new material being recorded, anyone? It's been a while...

    I seem to remember Steve F. telling us that DEM are as good (!) as gone. Puglisi is active with several other projects of course, but mostly in the field of experimental contemporary jazz like the Specchio Ensemble etc.

    De Republica, Cinque and particularly Equilibrismo da Insofferenza are extraordinary albums. They were all alone in doing what they did with the latter. I didn't really appreciate the rerecording of "Fine del Mondo" (on Imparis), though - the original's such an absolute monster.

    if they are gone, that is a major blow. Sad... And Equilibrismo is a true masterpiece , correct! I really enjoyed that DVD as well, especially the last bit with Ad Montem and Piras riding his bike. Funny how they ripped apart that Italian TV show, not your average Sanremo festival, eh!

    I'm pretty sure the Wayside mailer shows a new album Coming Soon. Or at least he did have it on there at one point recently. Of course, I don't have one handy as I delete them after reading, and I don't think he posts it anywhere else. Can anyone corroborate that for me?

    Yep, this has been at the bottom teaser of the e-mail for a while:

    DEUS EX MACHINA-new studio album (only about 7 years later than hoped...)
