The album was considered as a milestone of the new progressive Rock and the band has continued over the years to grow in the consent of the critics and the popularity until reaching last year with the album "Mysoginia" the betta of many international rankings and winning with the single "Woman" the victory of the best single of 2018 at international level.
Here's how the "MelaPesante" album was presented in 2010:
Syndone progband, a historic Italian progressive band, began their adventure in 1989 when composer and keyboardist Nik Comoglio wanted to form an ELP-style trio with percussionist Paolo Sburlati and Fulvio Serra on bass, avoiding the electric guitar.
... "We wanted a name that evoked" Sacredness "," Turin, "" Spirituality "and" Solchi Incisi "so I thought of SYNDONE, with the" Y "to distinguish it from the famous relic and to internationalize it. Without being blasphemous." ... [Nik ]
After the two albums "Spleen" (1990) and "Inca" (1992), the band broke up for internal reasons.
Eighteen years later the band returns as a quitetto. There are now Federico Marchesano (bass and double bass) - Francesco Pinetti (vibraphone and timpani) - Paolo Rigotto (drums and percussion) - Riccardo Ruggeri (vocals) and Nik Comoglio, the only one of the original line-up (piano, Hammond, moog, rhodes and keyboards).
new 2010 work is "MELAPESANTE" in which the spirit and the typical sound of the Syndones remain intact but are enriched by the experience of each of the musicians, to create a prog album at its best. The new vocalist Riccardo Ruggeri is extraordinary, one of the best voices in new alternative music.
