Nathan - Uomini di Sabbia (2022)

The third album from this Italian band.

The band is a trio with a lineup of guitars, keyboards and vocals.

Six guest musicians added drums, bass, backing vocals and choirs.

Nathan is a band in the middle of both the new RPI sound while they are also heavy influenced by the old RPI sound. Yes, Italian progressive rock.

Italian symphonic prog to be more precise.

Their two previous albums are very good indeed and I was therefore looking forward to this album.

There is no long suites here. Only one song, the final song, is longer than ten minutes. However, the short'ish songs are up to ten minutes long and they are both full of melodies and elegant details. Some of the details are even quirky.

The vocals are very good and the band and their guests are showcasing some very good musical abilities.

The songs are also pretty complex and keeps giving the listener new details on every listening sessions.

One minor minus is the lack of a killer track or three. I do not think the band has reached their potential yet.

This is a very good album indeed and one to check out.

3.5 points
