4 stars I heard about this band from Ukraine, but never listened to them. Apparently, they are not newbies in the world of prog music. They sell their latest opus on Bandcamp, and I really liked samples and art work of their CD, so I ordered it. I wan't disappointed!

If you are missing Camel (Moonmadness/ Rain Dance era), Happy The Man or Finch, you should check Karfagen! It mostly consists of lush, keyboard/guitar based instrumental symphonic prog, but also has tasteful parts of woodwinds that add jazzy flavor to their musical stew.

The album is instrumental, except of the first and last tracks. They sound similar to Learning To Fly from Momentary Lapse of reason.

Overall, this album was a very nice surprise, and I'm sure will check their past catalog, and also their future releases.
