• deus ex machina Devoto (CD, £13.50)

    label: Cuneiform

    "...lyrical, provoking and genre-pushing...one of the most extraordinary bands in the entire music universe." - AllMusic Guide. "Extremely tight, lots of texture and dynamic shifts and flawless acrobatic vocals...by one of the genre's best..." - Icon. DEVOTO ("Devoted") is the ninth album by Italy's DEUS EX MACHINA in a 30-year-long career. Founded in 1985 and bursting out of Bologna with their initial release in 1991, by the time they released their second, self-titled album in 1993, the group's line-up was exactly the same as it is today! Featuring the powerful and soaring vocals of Alberto Piras, the band is a unique blend of classic hard rock and avant-garde tendencies, having a big, heavy sound (not 'crunchy' but 'heavy') that is as equally influenced by Led Zeppelin as the Mahavishnu Orchestra. No one else sounds like Deus Ex Machina.
