Vittorio Vandelli - A Day Of Warm Rain In Heaven
Ambient, Folk Vittorio Vandelli is one of the members from Ataraxia but this is his first solo-project. With a bunch of releases with Ataraxia behind him he isn't a newbie and he knows what he does. And you can hear that in the music. According to Vandelli himself his music is a tale about a seafarer perilous journey through sin, death and rebirth. A kind of soul odyssey.

For me this record is strange but mighty experience, strange because this kind of music isn't what I'm used to and mighty because the music feels so big, simply mighty. The music which is based upon classical instruments goes from overwhelming and dark to more soft and clean passages.

The records first track is named "Farewell, Farewell Thou wedding Guest" and it's a good placement because of the mighty intro. This is also by my opinion the best song on the record. "A Day Of Warm Rain In Heaven", "A Sadder And Wiser Man" and "I Killed The Albatross" is some other really great songs.

My whole impression of this record is that is inspired from the big medieval masters, but also newer influences and modern ways of creating music. The music feels like it has been well made and carefully worked with which makes the whole record a very good experience. This is something I will spend many hours listening to in the future and it's also something I will recommend to other people.
