|Omschrijving||In 1969 the Prog scene had its first cries in
Italy. Among the very first Italian Prog groups
that had a record contract with a major, there were
It was 69 and the major was Fonit Cetra, already
home of the New Trolls who also opened in the
Osanna in 71.
It was the daughter of the Zanoletti Record Company
of Fonit Cetra to recommend the name Alluminogeni,
ingeniously combining the name of the leader of the
group, Patrizio Alluminio, with the "hallucinogens"
particularly in sight in those years.
The group entered the music scene with several 45s
that starting from the "song" formula introduced
different musical parts, sections tending to the
Prog that will come.
Scolopendra, their 72 album, defined Alluminogeni
as an Italian group that would go down in history.
After an intense activity in television radio and
in the main festivals, including national tour with
Cantagiro, the group broke up.
Metafisicio born 50 years after the birth of
In Metafisico we find, the most unique and rare
case, the original formation of the contract with
Fonit Cetra and of the first records with Patrizio
Alluminio, keyboards and voice, Daniele Ostorero,
drums and voice and Guido Maccario, bass and
2 young elements are added; Ludovico Bragante and
Alberto Rondano, for other basses and guitars.
The song opens with a song in which the group has
reconstructed the typical 70`s sound of the trio,
This is followed by several other pieces with an
increased orchestral and compositional maturity,
compared to Scolopendra, with great care and
inspiration in the texts.
Basically the Alluminogeni have maintained the same
approach of the 70s with the addition of some
"subsequent" sounds, with tracks, each with its own
personality and particularity.
There are also contemporary pieces of Scolopendra,
such as "Sogno alabardato di verde verde" and
"Samsara" which, as pieces of Scolopendra itself
were already composed ... in 69, before only
"singles" and ..the spirit time feels!
In the Prog of those years there were fundamental
spontaneity and originality and the trio of the
Alluminogeni as they were spontaneous and original
then, now they are with "Metafisico".
