The band comes from the north of Italy, combines the instrumental influences of post-rock music with the enthralling atmospheres typical of cinema soundtrack, creating a sound that describes emotions where words are not enough.
Fabrizio Paglia and Flavio Amelotti are A good Man goes to War, a Post Rock duo from Northern Italian Turin, formed in 2019.

Fabrizio Paglia and Flavio Amelotti are A good Man goes to War, a Post Rock duo from Northern Italian Turin, formed in 2019. Both musicians have made plenty of experience playing with Hardcore and Metal bands when they decided to take several steps back from aggression and fast-forward music.
Their band A good Man goes to War stands for the exact opposite of Hardcore and Metal, considering bass, guitar and drums still play a central role. On their first output the band presents reflected, downtempo,but yet intensive Post Rock with a strong impact by Ambient.
Seven tracks, each of them between four and seven minutes long, full of reflecting, exalted, and powerful themes fill the band’s debut album. The instrumental tracks create great atmospheres with their downtempo beats played by forceful drums and several layers of guitars and synthies buildung up airs of cold, thought, sublime, and progress.
A good Man goes to War’s “The Sounds of a large Crowd” is a meditative and self-exploring album. It is one of those releases you just have to close your eyes to. The music will take care of the rest.
Wonderful Italian instrumental duo of post rock, using textures in layers of ambient, atmospheric, and metal.
Well-structured melodies full of details, criticism and virtuosity, where they slide in an increasing oscillating cadence with refined keyboards, a guiding drums, a prominent low doom style full of sliding riffs, noises, distorted, sharp and precise.
Improvising is intense, immersive, sees the potential to be explored in the dark in a dense and intense atmosphere, opening the portals with mastery.
Reflections is sublime, brings us to an ecstatic synergy with a fantastic cadence, perfect and creative strumming, in a smooth and engaging way, raising our sensitivity in expressive chords and arpeggios.
All the best memories, is conceptual, technical, growing, with a perfect harmony.
The bravest moment, with traveling keyboards and a wonderful bow, slides smoothly into the vigorous counterpoint, creatively and with immeasurable sensitivity.
This cold white sky, immersed, epic, beautiful arrangements, floats between riffs and keyboards in a majestic and imposing way.
You have to leave something behind it is gentle, extensive in feelings and emotions, invoking the existential fullness in a harmonious way in its wealth of details and arrangements.
Lifeless architecture, longest and closing track, in an atmospheric background creates wonderful nuances that show all the creative and performing potential of the band, my favorite melody.
Beautiful debut album, congratulations to the band.
