. MARCH 2005
Il Bacio Della Medusa is quite a successful mix of Progressive Rock, Hard Rock with touchs, in some parts, of Jazz Fusion, all genres, in the way of Italian Progressive  Musical style, sounds, equally brilliant compositions, with hypnotic melodies and powerful lyrics, where will take you back to the 70s age, but with a very powerful sound and a very good production. The band have a sophisticated instrumental in the guitar works, supported by fantastic keyboards layer, with an intensive drums sound, combining with violin, flute and sax, which add dynamic musical elements to the songs. The singer Simone Cecchini has a fantastic voice and suits this kind of music. It's like a travel into the past with diverse influences from the famous italian old bands, just listen "Scorticamento Di Marsia", "Cantico Del Poeta Errante" and "Il Vino (Breve Delirio Del Vino)", you will find a same styles from: "Museo Rosenbach", "Campo Di Marte", "Delirium", "The Trip", "Il Rovescio Della Medaglia" "Biglietto Per L´inferno" and "Osanna".  Il Bacio Della Medusa has a refined Progressive Hard Rock style, where each song is turned into a stunning surprise. Brilliant and an indispensable work, highly recommendable...

The musical  project called “Il Bacio Della Medusa”  (Medusa’s kiss) begins at the end of summer of 2002, on the north-west bank of Trasimeno, a lake near the city of Perugia (Italy).

They want to restore artistic dignity to the musical arrangement and lyrics finding music inspiratin by the great Progressive Rock band of 70th (like King Crimson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Van Deer Graaf Generator, Camel, Caravan, Pink Floyd, Genesis etc....) and lyrics inspiration by italian song singer-writers as Fabrizio de Andrè, Branduardi etc. After a long creative season , in June 2004 the BDM completed its first work, the homonymous “Il Bacio Della Medusa”.

In December 2004 the band won a rock contest, “ROCK ‘n Centro” organized by the municipality of the city of Perugia, to which all the best groups of the region have partecipated. They also won a short stay in Aix en Provance (France) and the opportunity to get live performance there.
