Prog Reviewer
4 stars A big part of the most interesting progressive music today is performed by rather young musicians who can't possible remember that much of the heydays of progressive rock in the seventies. Of course the neo-progressive rock was quite successful in the eighties, but bands such as ANEKTODEN, LANDBERK, SINKADUS and ─NGLAGARD are all very influenced by the progressive rock of the seventies, which in my opinion is the best era of progressive rock. The Norwegian band KVAZAR follows the same musical direction as the aforementioned bands, or KING CRIMSON and GENESIS if you prefer that comparison, spiced with the unmistakeable Scandinavian melancholic mood. Their self-titled debut album is a very mature album with lots of complex and intelligent compositions, enjoyable melodies and good musicianship. Camilla Erlandsen is doing a guest performance on cello. When it's used, the cello suits the music very fine, so I wonder how they're doing when they're performing the songs live. If you're into typical Scandinavian progressive rock I ensure you that KVAZAR will be a pleasant surprise.
