BAND BUTTERED BACON BISCUITS
ALBUM FROM THE SOLITARY WOODS
LABEL JOLLY ROGER RECORDS
OUR RATING 84/100
Buttered Bacon Biscuits are born in 2008 as a side project of members of other bands.
The band is composed by Ricky Dal Pane on vocals and guitars, Alex Celli on guitar, Alessandro Aroni on bass and Antonio Perugini on drums. They recorded their first album "From the Solitary Woods", released at the end of 2009 as self-produced Cd.
During the recordings Stefano Olivi, on hammond and keys, begun a new member.
They were special guests in Italy for bands like Uriah Heep and Jethro Tull.
They are influenced by many groups like Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Genesis, Uriah Heep, Humble Pie, Allman Brothers, Doors, Neil Young, Blue Oyster Cult, Genesis, Atomic Rooster, King Crimson.
At the end of 2010, Andrea Palli replaces Perugini on drums and with him, B.B.B. begins to write new songs for the new album, but due to growing personal and musical differences on how keeping on the band, they split and Ricky Dal Pane starts a new project, the well-known Witchwood, again with Stefano Olivi and Andrea Palli and with new arrivals Luca Celotti on bass and Samuel Tesori on flute.
Disappointment for the previous split makes Ricky, aware of the appreciations received with "From the Solitary Woods" of which he's the main music and lyrics composer, even more determined and enthusiast about the new project, reaching its goal: debut "Litanies from the Woods" (Jolly Roger Records) with a so similar title to the previous B.B.B. album, is considered both in Italy and abroad as one of the best hard prog album of 2015.
This album is a real gem, with its HR full of blues, Hammond-driven and with strong riffing.
Vocals are perfectly mixed with this environment, also full of psychedelic drops.
An album absolutely interesting!
