Biglietto Per L'Inferno biography (http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=40)
Considered by many as being one of the best expressions of Italian progressive music. After have been known at the Festival Be-In of Naples (June 1973), they recorded one single album with the same band name, released by Trident, revealing great musical passages mainly using synthesizers.
They attended several Italian music festivals with fair results thanks mainly to singer, Claudio Canali, who moved through the stage, with great scenic approach. After disbanded a second effort was only released in 1992, titled "Il tempo della semina", containing material recorded in 1974.
Their debut is considered a small jewel, blending symphonic prog with hard rock. Influences range from GENTLE GIANT, to JETHRO TULL and BANCO DEL MUTUO SOCCORSO. Their second album "Il Tempo Della Semina" should appeal to fans of PFM, FOCUS and BARCLAY JAMES HARVEST. It finds the band taking a more commercial path, mostly abandoning the hard rock element.
The band line-up was: Giuseppe Banfi (keyboards); Giuseppe Cossa (keyboards); Mauro Gnecchi (drums); Marco Mainetti (guitars); Fausto Branchini (bass); Claudio Canali (flute, vocals).
