More information: There could not be a better time and occasion for Banco del Mutuo Soccorso to celebrate their 50th anniversary while simultaneously releasing their possibly most ambitious concept album since the release of their debut album ‘Darwin’ in 1972.

Vittorio Nocenzi was working on this new album’s musical concept for years together with his son Michaelangelo and lyricist Paolo Lugli. Narrating a real XIV century poem through different songs and possibly describing the facts and the ideals was a mountain to climb.

The result of the immense work in the studio is fully represented in an epic album that will set new parameters for progressive rock fans. Undoubtedly Banco has always been strongly related to their roots, but ‘Orlando: Le Forme dell’Amore’ is a definitive proof of how traditional prog rock can evolve in a modern new blend of sound and spirit.

The choice of singing the tracks on this album only in Italian (as before on Transiberiana) confirms the band’s will to stay loyal to what they’ve been doing from the very beginning. In order to help the fans understand and follow the lyrics better on a track by track basis, English translations of the lyrics will be included in the artwork, along with the original Italian lyrics.

For the cover of the new album Banco are using the iconic ‘Salvadanaio’ (Italian for ‘piggy bank’), that became the band’s unique logo and brand.

This is the limited digipak with extended booklet edition.
