4 stars Another gem from Fading Records, the sublabel of Altrock Records. How do they do it ?

Sanhedrin is from Israel and I refer you to the interview with them in the interview section for more informations. Sanhedrin started out as a Camel copycat, but they have branched out on this, their debut album.

Camel is still a start off point and reference on this album. But their vintage sound borrows a lot from the Rock Progressivo Italiano sound, the British symph prog sound (Camel, Nice, Genesis) and the Eclectic Prog sound (Gentle Giant). The music is vintage keyboards, guitars and flute dominated with strong support from bass and drums.

I am normally not a fan of instrumental music like this. But the music on this album really bowls me over. The music has a lot of darkness and melancholy as the bass. On the top of that, light is added and some really good tunes. This is an album you can both meditate/float away to and to listen carefully to. Even though the tempo is really laidback, the music still have some really intricate details and twists. It also has this 1970s feeling which is just wonderful.

In short, this is really a great album well worth checking out. A sure four star album in my books. I really hope Sanhedrin will follow up this album with more albums.
