The new album L'Incanto dello Zero by Italian prog rockers Il Segno del Comando is wonderful! The album kicks off with a fantastic gothic church organ instrumental “Il Senza Ombra.” Then across the remaining ten tracks, Il Segno del Comando treats us to aggressive heavy prog rock, occasional guitar shredding, some King Crimson touches, demonic chanting, edgy vocals, a bit of Goblin and Claudio Simonetti, some Le Orme touches from Felona and Sorona’s climax, and some atmospheric prog-jazz fusion. The vocals are smooth, melodic, and agressive. And there are some quiet moments peppered throughout, such as “La Grande Quercia,” “Nel Labrinto Spirituale,” and the album closer “Aseità.” I could go on, but why bother? If you are looking for some fantastic neo-Italian progressive rock, then look no further than L'Incanto dello Zero.
