Voyager – Colours in the Sun

Voyager’s “Colours in the Sun” is definitely a step-up in their discography in terms of production and sound mixing, as well as writing and having fun with the many yet different elements that create the very unique Voyager sound. It is a grower, you really get how many beautiful details it has by listening to it several times, and it won’t disappoint you, except that is too short! 4/5★ Van

Leprous – Pitfalls

With “Pitfalls”, Leprous created by far the most complex album in their discography, it is something else, is an album that marks a before and after, not only in their discography, but I dare to say in the progressive genre. The intricately layered sound and emotions are something to behold: this album is a difficult journey and a different one, at times filled with anger or hope. As varied as the human mind can be, Leprous created this musical journey as a reflection of these contradictory emotions. /Van 4.5/5★

Kamancello – Kamancello II – Voyage

With Kamancello II – Voyage, once again I just sit back, close my eyes and enjoy the ride these two otherworldly musicians kindly offered to us plain mortals. It remains a mystery to me, how Raphael’s and Shahriyar’s minds are seamlessly connected and able to produce such perfect beauty in one sit, record it and lend their musical heritage for all of us to enjoy and marvel with.

Iamthemorning – The Bell

Iamthemorning managed to impregnate my very soul with every single melody and words. And in the case of their most recent album “The Bell”, the music is able to transform and transport in ways I’ve not felt before from previous albums. 4.5/5 ★ Van

Heart Sound Metal Fest – 6 April 2019

The 7 bands at Heart Sound Metal Fest produced an unique day that will live in the memory of those who attended. Leprous as headliners gave an awesome unique ‘shuffle-set’ show. Vola were superb on stage and the big surprise for many was Smash Hit Combo with their blend of hip-hop and metalcore. All bands offered their best to help for a good cause: raise awareness and funds on the fight against Leukemia.

Prognosis Festival

For a first time edition, Prognosis Festival held the bar very high whether it was with the line up and also all the additional events with conferences, masterclasses, signing sessions. Even though one could have wished for a better schedule with no overlapping bands, the line up was incredible to set up a first time event and create a unique festival signature. Incredible but safe, there were hardly any bands on the bill that the progressive metal fans had not heard of. And of course the hottest acts of the moment were headlining. But as a first time edition, better be safe than sorry!
