Doracor (anagram of Corrado) is the pseudonym of Italian composer and multi-instrumentalist Corrado Sardella, who has been active on the Italian progressive rock scene since 1997.
The brand new album "La vita che cade" continues the string of great albums made this century by this symphonic progressive rock band.

The music is again a mix of Genesis, romantic Italian prog, and IQ-style neo-prog, with melodic sax a nice touch on several songs. The Genesis influence is not retro or copyist but rather takes off from the "Wind and Wuthering" period, using vintage keyboard sounds but not ignoring more modern instruments, not trying to sound like a tribute band. The classic Italian prog comes in mostly via the warm Italian vocals.
This is a superb, well-crafted album: majestic, romantic, and stirring.
