Doctor Cyclops "Borgofondo" LP
Italian power the trio Doctor Cyclops puts down with its debut an extraordinarily authentic and fulminant marching 70s hardrock album with New Wave OF British Heavy Metal but also US-Westcoast blues influences. It captivates with raw energy and its wealth of intelligent psychedelic and progressive facets, powerful rhythm and mystical concept with a few flute/organ flashes, but is mainly guitar driven.
Chris Draghi (vocals/guitar) knows in special kind how to melt his epic guitar riffs and wailing solos with his sensitive and catchy singing and provides a huge emotional intensity, on the one hand very mighty, but also haunted and desperately, completely in the style of groups like Black Sabbath, Grand Funk Railroad, Blue Öystercult or today's like Graveyard, Witchcraft, Cathedral. Seven songs between 4 and 8 min in total 48 mins are produced very well, rather unusually for a debut album, and create hunger to let these guys blow your mind Live-On-Stage with a genuine thunderstorm.
