Trailed by the energetic drummer Nunzio "Cucciolo" Favia, Osage Tribe A.D. 2013 reborn with most of the original line-up, given the involvement of bassissta Bob Callero, accompanied by young guitarist Mattia Tedesco. "Hypnosis" combines songs of the legendary debut revisited in a hard-prog key, with new tracks in the same style, where "Delitto Erotico" and the title-track show oriental influences. The CD edition includes three cover songs of classic hard rock ("We're an American Band", "Fireball", "Can't Find My Way Home").
Real Heavy Metal, honest and true; there are not many art forms on this earth that exist with such a level of purity. Starting with the giants in the 80's who fathered Heavy, Thrash and Power Metal, there are a select few who continue to purvey the very core of the music that all musicians know and love. USA's THUNDER TRIBE are one of these bands, thrashing out classic Metal in the vein of IRON MAIDEN and DIO. "War Chant" marks the band's debut recording of original material, and what a better way to paint a new picture of the old ways?
Duello Madre was an Italian group that released one album in the seventies. The group consisted of Pippo Trentin (saxophone, flute), Marco Zoccheddu (guitars), Bob Callero (bass) and Dede Lo Previte (drums). Many of the band members have been in other Italian groups. Zoccheddu has also been a member of Nuova Idea and Osage Tribe, Callero a member of Osage Tribe and Il Volo, and Lo Previte a member of Circus 2000 and Nova. The only album, simply titled "Duello Madre", was released in 1973. It is a jazz oriented, mostly instrumental album. Only the first track includes some minimal vocals. The musicianship in this album is good and it occasionally results in jamming like playing. Nice saxophone playing by Pippo Trentin is most notable. The rhythm section deserves a mention too.
