    No it's the Lineup of Gianni Leone (the keyboardist of the YS Album). He busy touring as BdB for many years and also plays
    with Osanna live.

    The Lineup of the two original guitarists (CUMA Album) seems to have been a one off..

    Sounds very good to me, nice instrumental stuff, I like the jazzy touches here and there.

    I do think that I remember them as "Bridgend Project". They must have had an Album a few years ago wich was
    more like soft ambient Post Rock with some spoken words. I think I wasn't impressed and didn't post About it.

    I just reread some Posts from former years and came upon my Top wanted Albums from 2017.

    Quote from myself >>>

    Egonon - Album is finished for years now and nothing is Happening [Still Nothing happend, I give a 1% Chance to be released]
    Gran Turismo Veloce - Recorded years ago, mixed a year ago and nothing is Happening [Still Nothing happend, I give a 1% Chance to be released]
    Fonderia - In the works for years, the band seems to prefer their other self "La Batteria" [[Still Nothing happend, I give a 30% Chance to be released]
    Mad Crayon- A sort of concept album about Belgium painter Magritte, in the works for 2 or 3 years now and nothing.... [Finally, soon I hope]
    La Tore dell'Alchimista - In the works for 10 (!) years now and of course nothing… [Still Nothing happend, I give a 10% Chance to be released]
    Ezra Winston - I don't even list them anymore (but something is or was in the making) [[Still Nothing happend, I give a 0% Chance to be released]

    This makes me Kind of sad

    Entertaining. Pleasant. Some nice melodies that linger after listening. A 21 minute title track. Lots of instrumental sections. It was good but for some reason I found something lacking - not sure what. At times the instrumental breaks sounded like noodling rather than a piece of music that starts somewhere and goes somewhere else. A bit "samey" throughout.

    Still, a nice interlude before I start work on a Wednesday.
    I've been listening to this album for a few days now. I think it is quite nice as it grew on me over time. The third track, "Un lieto inquietarsi" is my favorite, especially the second half.

    This would be one of my most anticipated albums by anyone. A great shame that we'll probably never see it.

    Rather sure that this has died already. In 2016 it was leaked by their (then) current Drummer (ex Divae) that they are working in their
    own biblic time on a new Album.

    Also the Italian PROG Magazine posted about doing an interview with them about the new Album. That never happend, I also think
    that post was deleted some time later.

    Never heard anything new later about it...
