Description/Reviews
Black metal. Progressive rock. And everything inbetween. The debut (and sole?) album of
Italian / Norwegian trio ORGAN: is just that – a cornucopia of sounds derived from and inspired by an incredible wealth of sources. Impossible to narrow down to a specific genre, «Everything is pared down. Minimal Expectations» finds itself sitting comfortably outside practical convention. It is simply music - sometimes abrasive, often beautiful - yet always fascinating and inspired. ORGAN: unite the past, present and future, as childhood memories blend with road-weary contemplation and universal wonder.

Description/Reviews
The album contains 3 atmospheric long tracks moving into a warm hypnotic post-rock sound, very fresh and catchy! It starts with “Waves” (10:33) with a dream peaceful scenery under a strong poppy balladesque environment, a steady powerful rhythm section that increases or decreases the intensity at times while the song obtains a wild mellow hard-rocking style towards its end.

Description/Reviews
The sixth official work of Twenty Four Hours is a double album intentionally inspired in the form and substance by the four most important white albums in the history of rock music.
  • Closer by Joy Division
  • The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway by Genesis
  • The Beatles (White Album)
  • The Wall by Pink Floyd
Unlike the much appreciated previous Left-To-Live, it is not a concept album, but a collection of songs that embraces many stages of the band’s creative life, including ambient veins (Intertwined), progressive with a long suite inspired by Supper’s Ready of Genesis (Supper’s Rotten) where profound mutation of values is exasperated, compared to those of the past, rock (The Tale Of The Holy Frog) and punk ones (77). In this last song that opens the album you meet aggressive punk atmospheres with echoes of King Crimson, and a spectacular final battle without exclusion of shots between the Hammond organ and Hendrixian guitar.
