BURNIN' RED IVANHOE was the only known prog act for me from Denmark before I heard from this band for the first time. So ZARAGON is another surprising discovery from the neighbourhood of Germany. They perform an excellent mixture of Neo and Symphonic Prog ingredients.

The music is comparable to the sound of FINAL CONFLICT, CLEPSYDRA, CAMEL and some german bands like AMENOPHIS. The rhythm section plays a solid role. The songs have nice melodies and are dominated by synthie keys/organ and a guitar playing which seems to be deeply inspired by Andy Latimer.

Stretched out hands and Fear to fight have a more Neo Prog touch with improved vocals and successfully arranged in my opinion. Additionally the long tracks Thoughts and No Return are containing wonderful melancholic meandering minutes.

I recommend to listen to this music. Unfortunately there is only existing a one-time effort from this band.

Rivertree | 3/5 |
