Tossico Amore is about reworking the music originally composed by Detto Mariano for Caligari's cult movie. Starting with a series of heavy themes inspired by the tough world of drugs, the music slowly transforms into full Progressive-Rock, that's where La Batteria effectively show their wide and multi layered background. A modern Prog-Rock opera that takes shape from Detto Mariano's weird musical ideas and develops through a completely new soundscape. This is the definitive accomplishment of a band who's able to melt sonic elements from the 80's, such as New Wave and Synth Pop, with materials coming from the previous decade. This is truly a new musical experience that shows how the spirit of Italian Progressive music (Rock, Jazz, Libraries, Film Soundtracks) can resonate between past and present. A total blast! Really!
