Music Monday: Alphataurus - La Mente Vola

I like metal, but sometimes enough is enough. And that’s when I switch to prog rock. And you don’t get much proggier than Alphataurus, a group out of Italy who put out their first album in 1973.


La Mente Vola is similar to most other prog songs. It’s almost ten minutes long and takes forever to get into the actual song. Still, I love the piano, the haunting vocals, and the gratuitous use of super-duper sci-fi sound effects towards the end. Do you also like prog? I’d love to talk to another person who does. They exist, right? It’s sorta like finding ska fans nowadays. They have to be out there. They just have to.
