The band is formed by Elio Volpini (bass), Ruggero Stefani (drums), Enzo Volpini (guitar and keyboards) and Toni Gionta, alias Toni Tartarini, a singer with a splendid voice. They immediately came to the fore thanks to some live performances, opening for Deep Purple at the Palasport in Rome in March 1973 and in the same year they took part in the Viterbo Pop Festival together with artists such as Alan Sorrenti and Mauro Pelosi. Released on the Columbia label and distributed by EMI, the album is a truly brilliant and distinctive debut. It includes refined compositions and careful arrangements, which highlight the technical potential of the instrumentalists and create a balanced and energetic disc, without any drop in tone. The song L'Indecisione, opening the album, is a pearl for all Prog lovers; in Consiglio vocal melody and avant-garde sound are combined; also Vox Dei, with an instrumental base clearly inspired by Uriah Heep, is among the moments to remember of the umpteenth "jewel" of Italian Progressive Rock.
