Prometheo: Vintage for brevity…..

Prometheo - Quello Che Rimane

Prometheo is as the name suggests inspired by the myth of the Titan famous for the theft of fire to the Olympic gods. Prometheo is also inspired of the classical music, to the iconic concept albums of the seventies and eighties and to all those sounds that today we would call vintage for brevity. After a period dedicated to iconic covers of the progressive genre, the band decided to devote itself to composition. Quello Che Rimane is the new and sophomore album from Prometheo and Lena is the chosen single.

Blood to blood

unfortunately I would say,

if genes bind us

as they explain

days like this?

It is strange looking at you

subdued, docile.

After years of hunger

and the knife between his teeth

to look for why.

Blood of blood

once you and me.

Until the front

to my nothing you have

really revealed who you are.

Show me again

how to satiate in front

to the remnants of an empty table.


You rocked me tight

and sharpened your canines

just for me.

Hidden in the pack

you lived like that.

Holding a grudge

covering up with excuses

silences and voids.

It’s kind of looking at you,

smell you today.

Like sitting beasts

on lost years

spent between us.

Hyena in the pack

You waited like this.

the perfect time

with blood that slow

stopped the body.

Show me again

how to satiate in front

to the remnants of an empty table,

how to blow my dreams

hanging from your different smiles.


You rocked me tight

and sharpened your canines

just for me.

In this hot August and waited

Make yourself and the same demands

of the time that has torn from absence

Only the deception of human presence.

As if it hadn’t been there

As if there was no distance

as if dreams were enough

to burn a life in the wind.

Prometheo was born in 2008 in Bari, Apulia, Italy. The progressive rock band is inspired by concept albums, odd times signatures, mythology and vintage vibes from ’70s and ’80s. The love for Italian progressive wave, in particular PFM, Banco Del Mutuo Soccorso, Area and for international strongholds of the genre such as Jethro Tull, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Yes and Genesis moved the band through the study of the iconic covers that made progressive great. The title track Quello Che Rimane ( What Remains),

After a long period of live venues in local pubs and theatres, the band started the composition of their first concept album, ‘D’un Fuoco Rapito, D’un Giovane Uomo, D’un Amore Insensato, based on the myth of Prometheus, the famous Titan who stole the fire from Olympic Gods and donated it to mankind. The myth is played in 10 songs tinged with hard rock, funk, and songwriting, classical and blues, with catchy guitar riffs and phrenic parts in unison.

In 2018 the band reached the final in Premio Massara contest (Lucca, Italy) and in 2019 they took part in Barezzi Road contest, with a progressive reinterpretation of the lyrical air ‘Questa O Quella Per Me Pari Sono from Giuseppe Verdi’s Rigoletto. In the same year, the band won a record production with Regione Puglia, Puglia Sounds and Teatro Pubblico Pugliese, and in October 15 their first album was released. D’un Fuoco Rapito, D’un Giovane Uomo, D’un Amore Insensato tour started in the late 2019 with several tour dates in Apulia and in the rest of Italy.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (6684 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
