1985 - Doom with Progressive Rock influence from Italy
Italy gave birth to the genres of Horror Movies and Horror Metal. If BLACK SABBATH and GOBLIN gave birth to a band, this band would be it. This is a very raw/flawed recording, very atmospheric with its 70's style synthesizer, haunting vocals (sung in English, but with a heavy Italian accent), and hypnotic riffs. It's off beat in nature, but if you want dark, as darker than the word black, this recording is not to be missed. "Land Of Mystery" was ahead of its time and the holy grail of the Italian Doom Metal scene. This is the cream of the crop and if you're into Heavy Metal and Doom Metal, it would be sacrilegious to not own this album.
