3 stars One of the joy's of being a collaborator here is that I get to hear progressive rock from parts of the world that I probably would have missed otherwise. Coshish is a modern progressive rock band from India, that uses quite a bit of metal in their sound.

The album begins with a roar. Firdous musically reminds me of early Porcupine Tree in a way, with a slight alt-rock sound, with some prog-metal flourishes giving it a kick. The best of the tracks have similar features.

Unfortunately, Coshish has been signed to the Universal Music Group label, one of the few conglomerate major labels left in the world (there were 6 back when I left the business in the mid 90s). I am willing to bet that it was the influence of corporate suits that caused the band to fill about one third of the album with simplistic arena pop.

Coshish shows on the remainder of the tracks that if they can break away from corporate marketers, they can become a powerhouse in the modern prog rock world.
