Zaius – Of Adoration

What might be considered ‘prog’ in “Of Adoration” is that Zaius venture into adding not only interesting changing rhythmic patterns, but the aforementioned general djent-post-rock-instrumental-album formula is entirely dismissed. This produces a fresh approach against the current trends in instrumental prog/post-rock music. 3,5/5

Jason Kui – Absence of Words

Now and then a rising star appears in the vast universe of contemporary music. I think Hong Kong-based rock and blues musician, session and tour guitarist and composer Jason Kui, is one of these. Here we have a young guitar virtuoso who is carving his way into the western world.  This can be assessed when listening to his debut album “Absence of Words”. Packed with 7 timeless beautiful songs that range between rock and blues, to jazzy tunes, airs of pure progressive metal. With so much technology available nowadays to make music easier for artists, it is a bliss to hear music that has been made from the heart and composed with the soul. Excellent debut solo album for a young and promising rising star.

Kaipa – Children of the Sounds

“Children of the Sounds” is an album that floats and make you float in a cloud of positiveness and beauty only experience and the inspiration drawn from the exuberant swedish nature could bring. A real gem in this genre, and in my opinion one album I’ll be coming back to very often. Such a complete album full of harmonious melodies, energy and good vibe is the kind of uplifting push I might need when my mood is not at its best. Thank you for creating this beautiful music!

Marty Friedman – Wall of Sound

I had no idea what I was going to find. Not only I found the “old” Marty Friedman the teenage me came to love, but I also found so many different levels, so much depth and always something new to be found. “Wall of Sound” is a real difference to what a guitar solo album usually is. I loved the different instruments, the arrangements and how everything blended in so well. For sure not a conventional guitar axe solo album!

Anubis Gate – Covered in Black

“Covered in Black” is not a concept album, but a themed album. It is as much a progmetal album as it is a melodic metal album. It is an album with moments that will really blow you away with their massive sound, as well as it will take you on the wings of its melodies with some electronic ambient keys here and there, and for sure it is an album that will crush your heart with its depth of feelings and the, at times, very sweet sounding vocals.

Leprous – Malina

Leprous deliver a masterpiece with a logic symbiosis of elements of everything they have produced and still adding some more icing to this wonderful multi-layered, multi-flavoured cake that “Malina” is. 5/5★
