MUSEO ROSENBACH - Zarathustra ( Italian Prog Masterpiece 1973 )

Museo Rosenbach's debut album is a perfect gem for Prog lovers. This shows an italian version that crosses over of King Crimson's first album meets Genesis Nursery Cryme in a dramatic way. You have the 20-minute epic that will send Edgar Allen Poe to write a musical version with Nietzche of House On Haunted Hill with mellotrons that turned evil, Black Sabbath influential guitar sounds mixed with a snarling drum introduction and a Hammond Organ from hell.

Highly, highly and highly recommended! Most of the Italian progressive is fine and beautiful, but this album is the highest point. Lots of keyboards driven heavy (but melodic) music, there's no any weak second all over the stuff. A party for Mellotron and vintage sounds lovers. Beyond Italian scene, "Zarathustra" is one of the best albums ever made. More than essential!

MUSEO ROSENBACH's "Zarathustra" is without a question one of my all time fav prog albums.
