    Dark Crystal hailed from Forlì(Italy),for years it was rumored about this band and this elusive LP,when finally three/four years ago some copies
    popped out in fairs (at high prices,of course);
    the artwork could be misleading,they did not play HM, it's a good example of Hard/Prog Rock with italian lyrics.
    This LP was recorded at Katapult studios in Karlsruhe(Germany) in 1990 thanks to the friendship that bound the band to the producer Kay Schlunz.
    the A side was recorded between 2nd and 3rd of October ,B side was recorded live at the Jubez Zentrum of Karlsruhe the 5th of October.

    Only promo copies were made(it seems no more than 50 copies) with the aim to find a proper deal(on the back cover shows " Campione senza valore, non vendibile = Sample without value,not for sale ") but it never happened and DC disbanded in 1992,only Marzio Petronici went on playing after moving to Switzerland ( ) while the drummer Francesco Tesei became a well known mentalist ...

    Gigi Agostini - Lead vocals and keyboards
    Marzio Petronici - Guitar and backing vocals
    Nicola Ballelli - Keyboards and backing vocals

    *** On the vinyl track #2 fades into #3, i did not split these tracks to
    maintain the continuity of the music,pictures scans included in the RAR,enjoy!!!

    Searched for samples from this LP a long time.. thanks
    I thought it was pure solid heavy metal at first (as you said in the notes) - it had the awesome artwork and bandname - DARK CRYSTAL,
    I mean how can you not think it was some obscure heavy metal treasure?.

    But I was told later (can't remember by who) that it was progressive rock which ofcourse was a little dissapointment..
    However this will be a good chance to judge it from the music and not only the artwork.
    Thanks Marco!

    BTW I found this clip just a few days ago, it have some short video clips and photos of the band
    Seems like it have been released on CD (issued by the band?).

    Decent hard/heavy progressive rock IMO!
    The last song on the LP "Rosa Fumetto" was totally awesome! (it's slow at the beginning but kicks in at 01:45)
