OK - back to regular postings on the UTR for awhile. And here's another one of the new exciting bands coming from Italy. I suppose it's really a collaboration effort, rather than a true band. Though it could certainly evolve into that as Hostsonaten did from Finisterre.
Not a Good Sign (NAGS), though from Italy,
have really nothing to do with their own heritage in progressive rock.
NAGS, a band that could also be called the AltRock Label All-Stars,
clearly have their sights up north towards Scandinavia, where the
instrumentals recall Anglagard, Sinkadus, and Wobbler. The English
vocals, sung in a somewhat commercial style, recall the Swedish group
Anekdoten - especially on their later efforts. This is a band who wear
their "prog patch" proudly on their collective jackets. We're pretty
much at ground zero here for the style, so if you don't like this, then
you probably have to question whether or not …
