A friend introduced me to this band last weekend - I was blown away, especcially considering that this record is from 1972 - it has EVERYTHING, parts of it even sound more like a proggier NWOBHM band, like, i dont know an early-70s version of newer Maiden stuff? And of course (again: 1972), huge early Sabbath stuff...and then again a very own style of hard prog rock...amazing band, check it out:

I need to get that record.
I'm only through the first track and it's pretty solid. If you like Italian prog, another group to check out is Premiata Forneria Marconi. This is pretty awesome man!
