ARCANSIEL is an Italian Progressive rock band, which has released three albums between 1988 and 1994: "Four Daisies", "Still Searching" & "Normality Of Perversion". Published today on the Musea label, "Swimming In The Sand - The Best-Of 1988-2004" can be considered as a compilation, except for the fact that the musicians have re-recorded the selected tracks. This makes a big difference ! This music is a particular mix of influences, MARILLION's neo Progressive seems to be the major component of it. Yet, they haven't forgotten about the Seventies and symphonism, so much appreciated by Italian music lovers. The shadow of GENESIS is sometimes very present, as well as the blend of the traditional Progressive rock music featured by PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI and BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO. The excellent and very charismatic singer Paolo BALTARO offers some remarkably intensive interpretations. As far as the music is concerned, it alternates between direct melodies and complex instrumental developments, and is particularly fond of flute, saxophone or violin parts. We can also note the presence of an epic song lasting 20 minutes, which is remarkable in this field. Thanks to this new sound which is true to its music, ARCANSIEL is just waiting to be rediscovered...
Symphonic Prog Expert For me ARCANSIEL has always been a promising band that never reached the level of bands like IQ, PENDRAGON or TWELFTH NIGHT, although they had the potential: every of their three albums contained good compositions but also material that couldn’t keep my attention. Now ARCANSIEL has delivered a ‘best of ’ compilation and for the first time, how cynical, this fine Italian band has made a mature CD! An hour long you can enjoy alternating symphonic rock in the vein of IQ with lots of breaks, changing of climates and great solo work (guitar, organ and saxophone with strong echoes from PINK FLOYD). Their ‘magnum opus’ is the long track “Evelyn” (21 minutes): it starts mellow with emotional vocals, than a catchy rhythm and lots of solos (violin, acoustic – and electric guitar, organ and synthesizer) and finally a compelling and bombastic atmosphere with sensitive electric guitar play. If you like melodic, 24-carat symphonic rock with beautiful guitar and keyboards, this one is yours
