Marathon biography
Not to be confused with the Dutch band of the same name, Marathon was another obscure Italian Neo Prog band, this time from Treviso, led by guitarist and vocalist Glauco Giacchello. He was the original bassist of the nearby legendary act ASGARD, but he left the group before the release of their official debut. Shortly after he found Marathon with Marco D'Iseppi on keyboards, Gianluca Pistolato on drums and Fernando Mastromatteo on bass. The band was signed by the German label WMMS/Music is Intelligence, on which they released two albums, ''Impossible Is Impossible'' in 1993, followed by ''Sublime dreams'' just a year later. In this second work Mastromatteo had been replaced by new member Roberto Pistolato.It seems that Marathon disbanded after these albums, leaving behind two documentaries of atmospheric Neo Prog, a bit similar to ASGARD, with heavier overtones in the vein of RUSH.

Review by berkaal

1 stars Sorry to say it, but this album is really embarassing. From cd cover to music, I can't find anything good. First shock is drums sound: bass drum and snare drum are really bad, their choice goes beyond my comprehension. Then comes vocals: they are really awful, and english pronounce is an option, as with most italian bands. The guys know how to play, but it's what they play the real problem. I could not tell the best songs, it's easier to name the worst: "Almost Like Machines" and "Inflated" are really unbearable. And then there's the old issue: you call it neo-prog, I call it pop.

Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars This Italian short-lived band from Treviso was found in early-90's by Asgard's original bassist Glauco Giacchello, who quit before the release of ''Götterdämmerung''.Marathon included also bassist Fernando Mastromatteo, drummer Gianluca Pistolato, keyboardist Marco D'Iseppi, while Giacchello handles the guitars and vocals.Their debut ''Impossible Is Possible'' came out in 1993 on WMMS/Music Is Intelligence.

The music draws some lines within the ASGARD territory of Neo Prog, although it is more upfront, definitely less dark and also less symphonic.Marathon played a more dynamic MARILLION-esque type of Progressive Rock with Giacchello's voice having an evident FISH color, just a bit accented, while the music is catchy but always served with some good instrumental ideas.Filled with rather short tracks the album offers typical song structures, nice lead guitars, lyrical themes and diverse synthesizers to result an accesible mix of Neo Prog with a fair amount of RUSH-type of Heavy Rock added for good measure.Without being outstanding, ''Impossible Is Possible'' will reward the listener with memorable themes, some fine guitar solos along with strong keyboard flashes and a decent vocalist with a theatrical twist, while at moments the music recalls the unique approach of ASGARD.

Decent Neo Prog, do not expect something that will blow your mind, but Giachello's presence guarantees a good quality regarding the album.Recommended, especially if you are deep into ASGARD's music.

Thanks to psarros for the artist addition.
