Like so many groups from the 70's, Il Castello di Atlante never had the chance to release anything at the time. But they never gave up playing together and, like Consorzio Acqua Potabile, released their first album in the 90's, with a line-up that included mostly original members.
The group was formed in late 1974 as Hydra with Giorgio Lobascio on guitar, and took its current name in 1975 (though their first concert was under the name Stato d'Allarme) after a stable line-up with the entrance of Aldo Bergamini as lead singer and guitarist, having a good live activity in their local area of Vercelli. A promo cassette, La guerra dei topi, was recorded in the early years.The original five-piece survived until 1982, helped by guest members from time to time, like keyboardist Vittorio Pallavicini and guitarist David Rampone.
In 1982 flutist Marchiori left the group, following them as live engineer, and the four remaining members recorded a second demo tape, Semplice... ma non troppo, and a single that was privately released in february 1983, by the time newcomer Roberto Giordano on keyboards had been added.
The band kept playing on a low level, during the 80's, third tape Passo di danza was produced in 1986, but it was the basic trio of Bergamini, Fiore and Ferrarotti that kept the name alive due to the work commitments of the others. The official renaissance of Il Castello di Atlante came in the early 90's, and thanks to the interest of the Vinyl Magic label and Arti & Mestieri keyboardist Beppe Crovella, they could finally release their debut album, Sono io il signore delle terre a nord.Still keeping a typical italian symphonic prog sound, yet with a 90's feel, the album was very well reviewed and became a starting point for the revived group. While the opening Tirando le somme can be similar to some neo-prog bands of the 80's, some tracks like La foresta dietro il mulino di Johan or Estate are much closer to the big names of the italian prog, the group having a distinctive element in the leading role of the violin that adds a folk touch to their style.
A second album in 1994, Passo dopo passo was a compilation of old recordings, both studio and live, and on a lower level than its predecessor. This also contains live tracks from the 70's, but the cover doesn't mention any details.Third album L'ippogrifo, in the same year, repeated the formula of their debut, though some reviewers considered it to be a bit too melodic.
Other albums have come in 2001, the very nice Come il seguitare delle stagioni, that's been the first also released on vinyl as well as on CD, and in 2004 with Quintessenza. As usual some similarities can be found with legendary 70's groups like PFM or Quella Vecchia Locanda, but the group always has a good personality and a rather original sound.
