3 stars A rare case of a band led by female musicians.The driving force behind Eternal Wanderers is the female sister-duo of Yelena Kanevskaya (vocals, keyboards) and Tatiana Kanevskaya (guitar, vocals, percussion).Based in Moscow,they released a demo in 1998,participated in several competitions with success and wrote tracks for three prog complilations between 2001 and 2005.By 2006 Eternal Wanderers became eventually a regular band with Dmitry Shtatnov joining on bass and Sergey Alyamkin on drums.In 2008 they debuted with ''The Door to a Parallel World'' on MALS Records.

Still the general sound remains under the supervision of the Kanevskaya sisters and their work on guitars and keyboards.The vocals are quite expressive and deeply atmospheric,yet they still needed some improvement due to the limited color range.The music though is of first class,like a cross between the demanding Neo/Symphonic Prog of COLLAGE and the Psychedelic/Space Rock of PINK FLOYD.The guitar work is actually great with nice melodic solos,a few pretty complex breaks throughout and superb riffing.The keyboard work can be spacey with those floating synths,often symphonic and sometimes even a bit virtuosic.There is plenty of space for music development and changing climates with long instrumental work,though the tracks follow a generally slow tempo.Beautiful dreamy atmospheres are created through the style with often a grandiose approach with dynamic effort mainly due to the guitars,but also to the orchestral keyboard arrangements.

The experience of the female duo after ten years of performing and composing is clearly taped on this debut.Without any flamboyant mistakes,the album is trully delightful and atmospheric with still some improvement on voices and changing tempos.Strongy recommended for fans of Space/Symphonic/Neo Prog...3.5 stars.
