The Italian Pertegò is absolutely not a new band, their previous albums were released at least four years ago, and Black is supposed to be the project's new beginning., And they do it with an album filled with with ethereal post-rock full of electronics and epic sounds.
This atmosphere generated by the grand keys, electronics and strings has its source in the project's philosophy reflected in those words: "telling stories about still free nature, they are talking about their world made of simple things and the nature that gave them birth". Those thoughts, just like the Italians' music, seem to have connections with new age movements, but also has a lot of original approaches and grandeur. If there was ever a cyber-punk adaptation of The Lord Of The Rings, Pertegò could make its soundtrack.
This album sounds best when the epic music is joined by a very professional-sounding vocal, which changes everything into some sort of post-rock opera (as in Cold Ballad). But the most delicate and perhaps the most epic would be their brilliant K.A.R.I.
Black costs 7 EUR.
