Review from Nino Anastasio (PROGRESSIVE ROCK ’70 – NEW PROG ’80 e oltre)

NICOLA RANDONE – MUSICISTA , COMPOSITORE , CANTANTE E POETA. Non so cosa abbia spinto Nicola Randone ad affrontare un così importante viaggio dove fatica e meraviglia si contrastano ad ogni passo, se l’effettiva fede cristiana o la voglia di confrontare se stesso con la natura. Una cosa è certa, ha trovato l’ispirazione, fors’anche spirituale,… Continua a leggere

Review from Didier Gonzalez (Highlands 72)

Apparu sur la scène italienne en 2003 avec NUVOLE DI IERI, Nicola RANDONE a poursuivi sa carrière en publiant RICORDO en 2004, puis HYBLA ACT 1 en 2005.

review from Peter Patti (Topolain)

Occorreva raccontare il Cammino di Santiago e l’impulso che spinge una persona ad affrontare un pellegrinaggio del genere, le speranze, gli incontri, la stanchezza e anche i “flash” di stampo buddhista, più che paleocristiano, che intercorrono al viandante durante i tanti chilometri che lui, volontariamente, macina fino ad arrivare al santuario di Santiago di Compostela.… Continua a leggere

review from Athanasios (Prog Archives)

I am unforgiven, I know – this review comes with great delay but time seems to be running with great pace, even if you are on the Camino de Santiago. Randone’s “Ultreia” is my first experience with the band and one of the few with modern RPI. It is based on Nicola Randone’s experience of… Continua a leggere

Review from Luca (Prog Archives)

Good music, a skilled band and very good songs, but this time what matters more is the concept. Journey. This is what the first act of this trilogy is about. A bit of history can help the understanding. St. James (Sanctus Jacopus in Latin) becomes Sant’Iago in Spanish. Centuries ago he walked to the actual… Continua a leggere

review from Darryl (prog Archives)

This is the first album I have heard from this Italian group named after founder Nicola Randone. Ultreia is the first in a trilogy of albums. This was inspired by a trip through the Pyrenes mountains on the border of France and Spain. The band has been around since the early 2000s and I watched… Continua a leggere
