Wicked Minds - From The Purple Skies 2004

In the early Nineties three young Italian musicians were playing trash metal and did a support act for MONSTER MAGNET. The famous band their psychedelic hardrock gig that evening inspired the guys, then it took a while until they released an album entitled "Return To Uranus". In 2003 Wicked Minds finaly released their real debut CD "Crazy Technicolor Delirium Garden". On 2004 the band joined the Italian Tendenze Festival and in 2005 Wicked Minds went to Belgium to do a gig at the known Spirit Of 66 Festival in Verviers. The Italian psych hardrock label Widow Records contracted Wicked Minds, they were joined by singer J.C. Cinel and in 2006 Wicked Minds released their second album Wichflower as a five piece band.
The sound on witchflower is sounds heavy and dynamic with obvious hints from URIAH HEEP along DEEP PURPLE, ATOMIC ROOSTER and HIGH TIDE. But Wicked Minds is more than just a derivative, they are good and experienced musicians who can write good and elaborate compositions, from dreamy and mellow with warm vocals, flute and acoustic guitar to harder-edged and bombastic with fiery, often biting and wah-wah drenched guitar and floods of Hammond organ. Also interesting is the pleasant integration of vintage keyboards like the Solina string-ensemble, Fender Rhodes piano, Minimoog synthesizer and even Mellotron. This adds an extra dimension to their sound and makes it worth listening for not only the hardrock and metal fans.
