Review by b_olariu
4 stars Ollocs is a young excellent heavy prog band from New York - USA who released in 2013 their first offer named Life thred. All album is instrumental , 13 pieces clocking little more then 1 hour. The band dispaly some fantastic musicianship on every tune and aswell the songwritting is pretty solid, is no need for vocals here because for the entire hour the listner is conected to the music. Heavy prog is all about here, quite diverse arrangements, nice interludes between musicns, specially the drumer and guitarist are awesome at best. Nice twists, breaks and turns here, remind me of Rush in their most glorious perioud. Besides up tempo tunes, are some more releaxed passages with nice piano just perfect after some more heavier sections. Pieces like Horizon, Asteria or Til Dawn are excellent showing right from the start that this band needs attention. No weak pieces only highlights for me. Very intresting is aswell the art work. So, all in all a very solid album in this field, similar with bands as Solar Architect, Rush, Carpe Nota. 4 stars for sure.
