(19 min, 'Burnin' Doll')
Burnin' Doll is the new Garden Wall-related band led by guitarist Raffaello Indri (Garden Wall). The other band members are Alessandro Seravalle (Garden Wall's main man: he is a multi-instrumentalist, in fact, but appears as a bassist here), drummer Camillo Calleluori (Garden Wall), and singer Marco Sandron, of whom I havent' heard before. "Surgical Doll" is an EP consisting of four songs, all of which are about a highly virtuosi Progressive Thrash-Metal in the vein of the early-to-mid period of Mekong Delta. Although the music on "Surgical Doll" isn't as complex as that by the said pioneers of the classically- influenced Prog-Metal (as well as Garden Wall's), the matter hardly diminishes its value. The vocals on the EP are in English and are good, while the musicianship of each of the band members is excellent.
