This review is from: SOLITARY SANDPIPER JOURNEY (Audio CD)
In my search for new and innovative prog-rock I stumbled upon this Ukranian based outfit Karfagen. Apparently earlier albums do not feature the beautiful vocals of Marina Zacharova. She only sings on acouple of tracks, the rest being instrumental symphonic epics likened to, I suppose, Focus and Camel albeit a bit more abstract.
I don't like to compare new bands to the more traditional ones, however there are obvious influences but hey do they do it well. This album boasts some fantastic musicianship with a line up of Accordion, Flute, Saxophone, the obligatory symphonic keyboards, splendid lead guitar playing and some other weird and wonderful sound effects. The album is almost concept to a degree and is a tale of peace and love and the quest for it. It has everything a prog rock album should have and more, especially when Marina adds vocals,gives it a broader feel which sometimes even sounds a bit Renaissance like. I would go as far to say that this album is probably the best I have heard in a while Prog wise, different for sure, yet has the similarities that will bend your ear towards it. fine stuff.
