Sadako E Le Mille Gru Di Carta is its fourth album and was released six days ago. The new album comes six years after the release of their successful album L’enigma Della Vita.
Logos was born in 1996 as an Italian progressive rock cover band, playing mainly Le Orme and Banco del Mutuo Soccorso. The same year, the band grew to five people, starting to compose its own music and making live performances.
Logos was formed by Luca Zerman (keyboards), Alessandro Perbellini (drums) and Fabio Gaspari (bass and guitar) as a cover band of Le Orme. Later guitarists Massimo Maoli and Andrea Dossi joined the band (although Andrea Dossi only for a short period) and they started to work on original compositions. In 1999 they released a first self-produced eponymous album. In 2001 they released a second interesting self-produced album, Asrava. Their sound is clearly inspired by Italian classic prog bands like Le Orme, BMS, PFM but also by Genesis, King Crimson…
