Two very different albums by two almost totally different bands are all that Procession has left us. This band from Turin made their first album ‘Frontiera’ in 1972 for the small Help label (an RCA subsidiary that also released Quella Vecchia Locanda’s first album), a good album that can be easily described as a hard prog LP. With a line-up of two guitars, bass and drums, and the original high-pitched voice of singer Gianfranco Gaza, the band plays very good hard rock with some progressive influences and acoustic passages. Not particularly original, the album has its moments and it’s particularly rare. The band reappeared in 1974 with a new line-up and a new recording deal, this time is Fonit which releases their second album ‘Fiaba.’ A mature work, much more original than their first and more in a symphonic vein with large use of sax and flute with guest appearances by drummer Francesco Froggio Francica (from Raccomandata Con Ricevuta Di Ritorno), Delirium’s keyboard player Ettore Vigo and Circus 2000 female singer Silvana Aliotta, while drummer Roberto Balocco (ex-Capsicum Red) helped the group in concert. Despite a good live activity Procession never gained the success they deserved and despite two good albums, they broke up in 1975.
