5 stars Like a nuclear explosion! June 2012 greets AKP latest, Sunchild ? Isolation (the dark chapter).

Flash back - as a teenager to that euphoria, holding the keys to your first car, the excitement, driving so fast through the meandering country lanes, initially caressing the power under foot, absorbing every turn in the road ahead, after two or three spins you're ready, foot to the floor for total exhilaration ? Like deja vu its Sunchild - Isolation.

With Kalugin all his work requires immense study into the layers of content for maximum reward and hear his ability to accelerate in and out of genres whilst still gelling the well crafted symphonic agenda.

Opening tracks include strong elements of Gabriel and Pink Floyd, supremely classy tracks with awesome pulsating bass and drum cranked up by art metal guitar reaching a timely crescendo with the warm soul searching Berlin and Leningrad. Then its into overdrive as Kalugin unleashes his latest monster isolation, four parts 20 minutes + a triumphant fanfare territorially that Sunchild fans have come to love, as ever the twists and turns make it both compelling and a vivid roller coaster ride.

Kalugin is a trail blazer in the art of looking beyond the usual parameters of rock, even shadowing into cinematic territory to heighten both its enjoyment and its darkness a cutting edge of each track to its core bone.

So herald another gold plated statement of intent from this rising talent

And come enter this dark place to reap the reward ? Isolation

Don't forget to check out the band, as they play live in France. Germany and various Eastern European countries this summer

These Are Happy Days Indeed!
