Description/Reviews:

Multi-instrumentalist Chilean composer Raúl Peurt, AKA Raúl Felipe Pérez Urtubia, delivers his debut album “The Path“, bursting at the seams with energetic drumming (his primary instrument, I believe), high-quality jazz-fusion compositions, edgy guitars, moody keyboards, and punchy bass lines.

Description/Reviews:

Bookended by two shorter instrumental tracks (actually track 8 is a bonus track...), “Canvas Two” reveals six lovely, soulful, emotional tracks, with the for me high point of the nearly seventeen- and-a-half minute epic titled “Soul of Hundred Lives”... This epic track and the lyrics cover a lot of ground, from delicate piano, to grinding bass synths, to finely constructed ambient sounds and quirky percussion, gravelly male voice that throughout this album reminded me at times of Peter Gabriel or Dave Cousins.

Ole Gjøstøl - piano
Morten Strypet - bass
Mats Lillehaug - drums

Description/Reviews:

Self-described as an alternative-progressive-pop-orchestra, that’s about as close a description as anyone might pin on them, which roughly translates to our inevitable conclusion: most music fans are going to find something to love about them.The strengths of MEER are multi-faceted. To begin with, there are not just one but two lead vocalists, each one surpassing what you’ll find in most of MEER’s peers. Their delivery is impassioned, artful and convincing. That one is a man and the other a women (siblings, in fact) adds even more to MEER’s wide-reaching arc. Then we have the additions of violin and viola to the traditional instrumentation of piano, guitar, bass and drums. A full orchestra indeed, rounded off with a well-balanced production which can make each member’s contributions sparkle. All of this promise would be beside the point without inspired material and in that regard MEER unquestionably succeed, having laid down 11 sumptuous original compositions and one re-invented cover song as a bonus track.

Elephant9 "Arrival of the New Elders"
Afbeelding

Country: Norway
Genre(s): Instrumental Jazz-Rock, Fusion
Label: Rune Grammofon - RCD2218
Format: CD, vinyl
Release date: February 12, 2021
Tracklist

Arrival Of The New Elders
Rite Of Accession
Sojourn
Tales Of Secret
Throughout The Worlds
Chasing The Hidden
Chemical Boogie
Solar Songs

Line-up
Ståle Storløkken - Rhodes piano, Hammond organ, grand piano, Eminent 310, Mellotron, Continuum
Nikolai Hængsle (Needlepoint) - electric bass, electric and acoustic guitars
Torstein Lofthus - drums, percussion

Description/Reviews:

Elephant9 had taken their groovy mix of high energy rock and power jazz as far as they could. In this respect Arrival Of The New Elders comes as a welcome and most timely addition to their recorded output. More varied, mature and reflective, they are as groovy as ever, but more structured and less jam oriented, with the longest tracks clocking in around the seven minute mark.

God Is An Astronaut "Ghost Tapes #10"
Afbeelding

Country: Ireland
Genre(s): Instrumental Post Rock
Label: Napalm Records
Format: CD, vinyl, digital
Release date: February 12, 2021
Tracklist
1. Adrift
2. Burial
3. In Flux
4. Spectres
5. Fade
6. Barren Trees
7. Luminous Waves

Line-up
Torsten Kinsella - Guitars, Piano, Synths
Niels Kinsella - Bass
Lloyd Hanney - Drums
Jamie Dean - Guitars, Piano
With
Jimmy Scanlan - Additional Guitars (2,3,6)
Jo Quail - Cello (7)

Description/Reviews:

Ghost Tapes #10 ... rather than pick up where the quartet left off in 2018, explores a radically different approach, with the focus fixed on movement and intensity. While the album is certainly the most ferocious GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT full-length to date, it still retains all of the rich musical and emotive elements the band is known for by maneuvering around luminescence whilst offering harsh, deep reflections as well. Works of art like “Burial”, “In Flux” or “Barren Trees”, with additional guitars by Jimmy Scanlan, amongst others, are proof of these sonic illustrations.

Egor Lappo "Trancevoicer"
Afbeelding

Country: Russia
Genre(s): Progressive Rock/Metal
Format: digital
Release date: March 19, 2021
Tracklist
1 - The Renegade
2 - Dreamworld
3 - Turncoat Allies
4 - Contention
5 - The Mask of Kindness
6 - Ship 1426
7 - Under the W
8 - Sparks in the Night
9 - On Such a Sad Note
10 - With You

Line-up
Egor Lappo - Everything

Description/Reviews:

To sum up the album's sound, it's basically what would happen if Ghost were inspired by Rush instead of Blue Oyster Cult, and if Devin Townsend took the producer's seat. Trancevoicer is equal parts catchy and otherworldly. The earworm vocal melodies pair nicely with the wormhole created by Egor's cosmic synths and extraterrestrial guitar solos. This new album is a space prog-metal concept record about two warring worlds. The story follows a renegade who decides to betray his home planet to save another one from occupation after a cosmic catastrophe. Through his journey, other turncoats join him in pursuit of a detached but peaceful life. Both worlds reach the brink of destruction in the end: one from stubbornness, mistrust and solar flares, and another from possession, greed and wars.

Description/Reviews:

It is no coincidence that the title of the album brings to mind the 1972 masterpiece Thick as a Brick by the British rock band JETHRO TULL. This debut, however, is not a remake of Thick as a Brick. Instead Still Thick as a Brick is a tribute to the legendary classic. REFLECTION CLUB picks up the musical style of JETHRO TULL during their progressive rock phase between 1972 and 1973, expands on it with elements of jazz and fusion and creates a novel, nearly 48-minute-long, original composition, divided into 11 parts.

The album lyrics are focused on human behavior and entwined with the three theological virtues and the seven deadly sins in a gloomy and decadent mood.

Description/Reviews:

70 minutes of energetic and incredibly diverse material- though still very much recognizable as Kayak. The tracks on the album could hardly be more diverse, showing Kayak’s broad musical horizon, while still deeply rooted in prog. Moving ballads, adventureous epics, solid rock and sophisticated melodies- it’s all there, and more.

5. Foxholesque (10:13)

Total Time 33:02

Line-up
Jonah A. Luke: Vocals, guitars & programming
Ángel Millán: Acoustic drums & percussion
Max “Mojo” Moritz: 5-string bass, Zeta double bass (3)
With
Maese 1001: Additional programming (1), synth prog (6)

Description/Reviews:

The best thing that can be said about The Foxholes is that they defy any categorisation... The focus has always been on band leader Jonah Luke's commanding guitar work and unorthodox vocals that recite quirky lyrics, all wrapped in a power trio guise. ... Jonah is the only constant figure in the band's history, but keyboard textures have also found their natural place within the band's signature style. This is none more obvious than on Vepar, one of the best tracks on the album. It is an intriguing mid-tempo song, complete with dramatic strings which wouldn't be out of place on a Lunatic Soul or even a Riverside release.

Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings, Karmakanic, The Tangent) - bass
Mirkko DeMaio (The Flower Kings) - drums
Steve Hackett (Genesis) - guitar (11)

Description/Reviews:

The new album, “Spiritus Mundi”, centers around the poems coming from Nobel Prize winning William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), who Sylvan calls ‘one of the finest poets to come out of Ireland.’ Not having to write the lyrics himself this time gave Nad the opportunity to solely focus on the music. And being off the road due to the pandemic allowed for more time to mix and perfect every aspect. The result is a collection that Sylvan calls his best work. The album marks a shift musically from Sylvan’s previous outing focusing more on the lyrics and vocals in tandem with gorgeous orchestration and timely melodies.

Line-up
Jakob Rehlinger - everything

Description/Reviews:

After 19 albums, this is the culmination of the vision Jakob Rehlinger has had for the psychedelic spacerock project since the first Heavy Moon release in 2006. Blending classic late ‘60s acid rock with early ‘70s prog, krautrock, and proto-metal, he’s woven a sonic tapestry of trippy, mind-bending sounds and textures to aid the listener in their own astral travels. No additional psychedelics needed.

Line-up

Description/Reviews:

“Corrosive,”...gave me bigtime King’s X vibes the first time I heard it, an automatic “I’m in” in my book. As I progressed through the album, Eroded ended up revealing itself to be a far more nuanced and unique beast than a simple “for fans of King’s X” sticker might indicate — somehow both heavier and more poppy — and yet here I am coming back to that comparison, another proggy power trio that made way more noise than you’d expect and were far better and more influential than most folks gave them credit for.
