Bloody hell! This sounds utterly amazing! Within minutes all I can think of is the finest elements of Goblin & Zombi rolled into an evocative driving, behemoth of an album! You know, the real striding prog-horror deal. I can take or leave a lot of this stuff to be honest - taken out of the context of a quality 70's/80's shocker, this derivative style of mock-incidental music can often err on the side of simply kitsch, but this? The clarity of production and the powerfully brooding low-end have me creaming myself! This is deep, innovative retro-progressive music with a relentless stalker mentality, wearing a full-on dirty groovesuit. Can you stalk someone in a suit? Patrick Bateman did I'm sure. I don't just want to sit here raving about the way this genre-flaying record makes me feel this crisp Autumn morn. It's one of the finest examples I've heard of that classic post-Italo sound, constructed by a fully-fledged genius in waiting. The sinister, dystopian synths on Prophecy Of The Black Widow are to die for on here, it is a truly hypnotic, all-consuming journey that transcends plagiarism somehow, due to its beautifully crafted nature. AOTW for me!
