SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Heavy / RPI / Symphonic Prog Team
4 stars The band is the project of Markus Roth with the help of guitarist Achim Wierchem and others. The first album released in 2015 was showing some potential . The new album has been made with the help of some new guest musicians. The album showcase some great musicianship with Sebastian Schleicher playing some exquisite guitars, and Markus on the keyboard, and piano parts. This album has plenty of long instrumental passages of floating symphonic prog rock with a little dose of metal which sounds modern despite some influence from the old school of prog rock. The compositions here have improved a lot from the first album. ''Seven Doors'' with his 14 minutes push all the right buttons bringing on on a pleasant journey by using many instruments to create a lot of texture to the music. While no violinist is credited here, there is some recorded sound of the violin here. The short ''Criminal Mind'' song brings a new mood in the jazz territory with a bit of cool singing and that haunting keys sound. In the next songs, the band infuses a Prog Metal in the Drem Theater style with some lighter parts by bringing the pace down. That leads to the final big epic, and the title track bringing some beautiful flute and piano parts to set the mood before the music gets many twists and turns like a typical long prog rock song. I give this 4.5 stars.

4 stars German project MARQUETTE is the creative vehicle for composer and musician Markus Roth. While veteran musician Achim Wierschem was involved in the first Marquette album, as of 2020 Roth now appears to be the sole driving force of this venture. "Into the Wild" is the second album to be crafted under the Marquette moniker, and was released in the summer of 2020 through German label Progressive Promotion Records.

I wouldn't be all that surprised if Marquette's second album "Into the Wild" made it into quite a few of the best of 2020 lists some people enjoy to write down in late December. The compositions are subtly quirky and challenging, but without being overtly so, the musicianship is excellent, as is also the case for mix and production. Eclectic, mainly instrumental progressive rock is the overall name of the game, and those who find music described in this manner to be interesting should give this album a spin. On a small side note, there's a very minor treat in store here for Swedish listeners, one I suspect they'll appreciate when they encounter all three instances of it.

5 stars "Into The Wild" was inspired by the life of CHRISTOPHER MCCANDLESS, who traveled across the United States with minimal equipment and no money, on a quest to become one with nature, but found a death tragic in the Alaskan wilderness. The story and the lectern are "an example of a coherent search for ... (read more)
