4 stars Wow... this one was a real find kids... MYRIAD are a band all their own and very much progressive in their fresh new approach. Musically these guys are ontop of the world with some exceptional guitar, keyboard and percussive moments. MYRIAD blend the robustness of the CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO with heavy KING CRIMSON and PORCUPINE TREE breakouts and synth charm of vintage 70's bands.

The band is really the genius of Matthew Heindorff (guitars, bass, vocals, synths and organ) and Darren Finch (drums, cymbals, djembe and congas). Mood swings are just the order of the day on this album and songs move from very serene to heavy guitar-laden breakouts. Lovers of PORCUPINE TREE will without a doubt love this little album. Symphonic and Majestic yet impulsive and dark. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
