The Canadians from Trostlos only promote quaint music, now releasing, after ANTIQUE and SHIVA IN EXILE, a young man's project, Gianfranco Biagini which, along with Filippo Mastrangelo offer a pale combination of Gothic, HardRock, Atmospheric and Electronic. It is a sort of Atmospheric Gothic mixed with some Dark Ambient elements, but when put together they sound sorely strange, given the fact that there is no link between the tracks. Some of them resemble PARADISE LOST, there are others reminding the CMI bands, all sounds diverse and therewith synthetic, artificial. If I would have received the CD without any other information about it, I could have been considering it a compilation. Therefore, too many distict ideas entwined in an uninspired manner, all put together in one single album! Still, it is an interesting audition!
