Profile
Jacula is an Italian progressive rock band founded in 1972 in Milan as an experiment by Antonio Bartoccetti, Doris Norton (also known as Fiamma Dello Spirito), organist Charles Tiring, and medium Franz Parthenzy. In 1974, unsatisfied with the band's music, the name was changed to Antonius Rex and Bartoccetti altered the lineup somewhat. Antonius Rex has maintained activity on and off since the late 70s.
