La Maschera di Cera vs Le Orme?

In somewhat of a prog first, [[bands/maschera-di-cera-la|La Maschera di Cera]] have released a follow-up to an absolute classic of Italian Prog, Le Orme's Felona E Sorona:

"After a decade, four successful albums and concerts played all around the globe, La Maschera di Cera close the circle proposing an album that is the sum of all the Italian Prog homage matter. The band has in fact decided to write the continuation of the “Felona and Sorona” concept (Le Orme, 1973), a record that is unanimously considered a masterpiece, as well as a milestone in the world progressive rock scene.
