about

"Quite awe inspiring, to be honest, as the textures and arrangements used are often quite inventive." Scott Homewood, www.rockandrollreport.com

Matt Howarth of www.soniccuriosity.com writes: "This release from 2010 features 73 minutes of engaging progressive music. A strange mixture of pseudo-classical pieces and modern electronic rock. Electronics provide a variety of layers: background textures and spotlight riffs. Squealing sequences are punctuated by guitars of an equally squealing nature.

Keyboards delineate undulant flows, nicely supporting more squealing guitars. Guitars contribute heavily here, often in a strident manner with searing riffs of the type that scorch paint from the walls (but in a pleasurable fashion).

While the twang factor is strong, a lot of the riffs demonstrate spacey characteristics. There’s percussion, lending rhythms of both leisurely and vibrant types. Synthesized violins are frequently featured, sometimes in solo presentation (in tunes that approximate modern classical venues) and as accompanying instruments.

No vocals here. These compositions are versatile. Some are quasi-orchestral pieces, moody and stirring. But the majority of tracks fall into the progressive rock genre, delivering gripping melodies of bewitching delight. Some of these latter pieces utilize crisp electronics and delicate percussives with wafting symphonic elements, tempered with pleasant guitar strumming. Others belt out demonstrative riffs with puissant guitar. There’s one track that features a brilliant sampling of dazzling guitar with Eastern percussives. Highly recommended."
