Mediterraneo is the 3rd EP CD of the Italian band EVEN FLOW, a very decent melodic progressive/power metal band with a typical Italian progmetal / vocal sound like we know it from bands such as TIME MACHINE, CIRCUS MAXIMUS, DGM, LABYRINTH, ELDRITCH… It’s a mini-album, so only 5 songs are included, but from start to finish the music is of a very high level. Although this concerns an independent release, the sound and production is massive! The band was formed about 25 years ago by the brothers PIETRO PAOLO LUNESU (guitars) and GIORGIO LUNESU (drums), and along the way current vocalist MARCO PASTORINI and bassist LUCA NEGRO joined them. So far they released 2 full-length albums, played and recorded with quite a lot of well-known musicians/producers from the prog/metal world, such as MARK ZONDER (FATES WARNING), MIKE LEPOND (SYMPHONY X), JOOST VAN DEN BROEK (AFTER FOREVER),

TOMMY HANSEN and many more. Now they are completely on their own with this new EP CD that contains as already mentioned high quality melodic progressive metal with a focus on melodies, both vocally and instrumentally. DGM is a close call here and there (especially during the fantastic Ray of Light), and also LABYRINTH comes to mind during the chorus of the uptempo Revelation Day, while closing track Mediterraneo has a slight bombastic symphonic metal (including Arabic melody) influence like KAMELOT and MYRATH. EVEN FLOW is a band that should be bigger in the prog metal world, because they are as good as the big boys in the league like DGM, ANDROMEDA, PAGAN’S MIND, THRESHOLD and such.
