    Yep, that is the new vocalist. The new album is very different from the first one, the Italian 70's influences are almost gone. Instead they play a
    more komplex jazzy modern Prog now. Most of the tracks are instrumental, I think there are about 4 tracks sung in English.

    The album is based on themes around the Cthuhlu Mythos (H.P. Lovecraft) and is much darker than the first.

    I like both albums, but would prefer the first one.

    Darn it, this was on Walker's recent update and I missed it. I'll order it soon.

    I bought the digital download, but something is amiss - this one is supposed to be a live CD, but the first 8 songs on the download are not Osanna, but another Italian band

    The song listings look correct vs the rear of the CD inlay, but the music on the files doesn't match the titles

    The concert picks up with the proper recordings, as titled, from tracks 9-20

    The Itunes listing appears to be incorrect as well, as they show the exact same track times

    Anyone have the actual CD?
    You are correct the downloads have a different band on the first 8 tracks. Not any band I heared before, maybe some other MaRaCash band
    like Fluido Rosa or something in a similar softer vein.

    Would like to know who they are?

    I'm curious if the CD was pressed in error as well

    The tracks on Spotify are also incorrect

    To answer my own question, just found this review on Amazon.it concerning the new Osanna

    Sounds like the CD has the wrong tracks as well

    "The CD is great for fans of the genre prog-rock, deadlines met as usual, perfect packaging, too bad it being understood AutoRip and then the music tracks to mp3 downloads, the first 8 does not correspond to the titles, but they are songs an Italian artist unknown to me, while the ninth song on (they are 20 total) there are the right tracks. Retired CD December 15 I made a complaint and I was told that by 21 I'd heard, but no one has contacted me and to my third phone call I keep saying that it is a technical problem being solved, but I wonder if need much time to send 8 right files?"

    here's a couple of good ones worth noting b4 the year is gone. both are available from CD Baby. Bengala is download only. Alchemy Daze is both CD and download

    Bengala - Kokoko (Bengala 12/10/2016) jazz/fusion/funk

    "Rock with a progressive twist influenced by soul, funk and blues. For fans of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and The Black Crowes, "Along for the Ride", the debut album by ALCHEMY DAZE will keep you grooving"

    Alchemy Daze - Whiskey Pam (Along for the Ride 11/18/2016)

    I like the part where Icarus hijacks the Little Red Hen.

    That sounds pretty great! How much of the original line-up is still with the band these days?

    If I'm not mistaken I would say 4. Lead Vocalist, one of the Keyboardists and Bass Player and Drummer.

    I think the Ingranaggia Della Valle - Warm Spaced Blue is definitely in my Top 10 for 2016.

    Did you end up getting it? It is fantastic, 80 minutes of pure bliss. Been playing it intensively over the Christmas break and I liked it more with every new spin. Another worthy contender for Top 10 of 2016.

    Yes, I got it. I just had time to spin it once, but really liked it. BdM are in my top 10 ten of current Italian bands.
    This one will surly get many more spins.

    What happened to Leonardo Sasso, he lost so much weight? Not a bad thing in general, unless the loss is caused by some illness. I hope that is not the case. Check the video below from only three years ago:
