4 stars US project VAJRA is the creative vehicle of composer, singer and keyboardist Annamaria Pinna, a venture she planned while staying in India on a self-imposed exile. Employing the help of various musical friends, her ideas were given shape and form after she returned to the States. The end result was released in the summer of 2012 ? as the nine-track CD titled "Pleroma".

Vajra's debut "Pleroma" is a compelling production. Perhaps not progressive rock as such, but utilizing a fair few details and approaches I suspect will interest quite a few self described progressive rock fans. Blending elements from metal and rock and flavoring them with Indian inspired world music details is what we're treated to here, sporting sophisticated arrangements in compositions of a more straightforward and mainstream oriented nature. I'd guess that quite a few fans of a band like Porcupine Tree might enjoy this CD, and mostly so those who enjoy the harder edged part of that band's material.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
