In The Court Of The Mandolin King
The ascent of the mandolin to the world of prog could only continue with the famous album In The Court Of The Crimson King, one of the best progressive records of all times, called by Pete Townshend, of the Who, “a stunning masterpiece”, while critic Edward Macan said that “it could be the most influential progressive rock album ever released”. Mandol’in Progress, always trying to adhere to the innovative intentions of the records to which they are inspired, but also faithfully careful not to distort the language of plectrum instruments, goes further in the exploration of possible experiments on mandolins, entering the world of electronics and counterfeit sounds. Looking forward to the next try.
The challenge continues! The ascent of the mandolin to the world of prog could only continue with the album that in June 2015 Rolling Stone magazine placed in second place among the 50 best progressive records of all time, behind only The Dark Side of the Moon. In the Court of the Crimson King was called by Pete Townshend, of the Who, “a stunning masterpiece”, while critic Edward Macan said that “it could be the most influential progressive rock album ever released”. Always trying to adhere to the innovative intentions of the records to which we are inspired, but also faithfully careful not to distort the language of plectrum instruments, our new work goes further in the exploration of possible experiments on mandolins, entering the world of electronics and counterfeit sounds. Looking forward to the next try...
