The new Maschera Di Cera album, which is unnamed yet, has been recorded and mixed and is currently in the process of mastering. The album contains seven songs and will be available in September 2005 from Immaginifica Records. The CD is produced by former PFM drummer Franz Di Cioccio and follows the traces of the other two MDC albums in the glorious tradition of Italian progressive sound of the '70s. Classic symphonic Progressive mixed with a dark and powerful sound.
Canadian Prog Rock trio Talisma, whose first CD "Corpus", released in 2004, was very well received by the Prog community, have finished recording their second CD. It is titled "Chromium" and will be released on Unicorn Records in August 2005. The CD contains 12 songs of pure instrumental Progressive Rock with nice fluid mellotron textures and odd time signatures.
