"Odysseas is the fifth album of the renewed Syndone, a new progressive/progressive folk band active during the early ’90s, now back in action with their reunion of 2010. A fascinating concept album dedicated to travel and discovery , enhanced by collaborative efforts and to cover A Oriente (1979) by Lorenzo Alessandri, one of the most important exponents of Italian surrealism.

Compared to their last two, Melapesante (2010) and La bella è la bestia (2012), Odysseas shows a more decisive, firm and tight-knit band, which provides an updated and dynamic 70s style symphonic prog. Added to the regular trio (Nik Comoglio : keyboards, Riccardo Ruggeri : vocals, Francesco Pinetti : vibraphone, is added a spectacular drummer, Marco Minnemann !

Marco has recorded all the percussion parts on the album, becoming something more than just a special guest. “I just recorded the drums in my studio for these guys in the great Italian band Syndone. A group who were really nice to work with. Cant wait to hear it all. It has been a pleasure to record their music.”-Marco Minneman

Together with Marco, another extraordinary musician offered his art to Odysseas - John Hackett, the eclectic flutist best known for his collaborations with his brother Steve Hackett. “It has been a great pleasure to record with Syndone and add my flute to such refined compositions. Thank you.”-John Hackett
