The phrase Ad Maiora means “to greater things” in Latin and that’s where, in my opinion, the Italian Prog Rock band, who chose that expression for their name, is headed. Yes, based on their self-titled debut album. I think that Ad Maiora will be moving on to greater things!
The band was formed in 2009 in Milan, as a progressive rock project. During the period between 2009 and 2013 Ad Maiora was writing their own compositions, all of which appear on their debut album Ad Maiora! which was released in January of 2014. It was also in this time period that the band contributed the track “Whaling Stories” to a Procol Harum tribute album, and played in support of Italian bands like Ubi Maior and Shylock.
