4 stars Glad to meet this creation. A Finnish promising psychedelic rock unit HADAL SHARPA have finally released their debut eponymous album in 2017, including their 'icon' track 'Chafa Azeno', that was introduced for me by the guitarist Ville a while ago. This single track via Indie Go-go Campaign was so exciting for me enough to look forward to their first full-length album, and the debut was as fantastic as expected. Yes like an eyeball in front of a facially formed tree, their soundscape is wide, wild, and weird.

One of their masterpieces 'Chafa Azeno' is filled with their liberal creativity and mysterious sensitivity. There is apparently ethnic texture like an Indian folk song featuring electric sitar sounds. This sound method reminds me of Avaruuskorpraali Paha Hirvi, one of Space Rock combo hailing from Finland. But Hadal Sherpa's attitude to progressive rock is not imitating such a tribalism or ethnicity to produce so-called psychedelic progressive / space rock but digesting the melodic method out for training their progressive rock muscles.

The opening suite 'Nautilus' is more acceptable spacey rock tinged with pop flavour. It's flooded with percussive dreamy beats and comfortable danceable flute timbre. Gentle, melodious guitar play is pretty cool, delicious. 'Ikaros' is sorta theatre of his story - he'd flown to the sky with his 'wings', and fallen to dead after losing the wings - there are hope, dream, and crisis via their distorted sound and groove. 'Marracech' goes forward speedily and powerfully leaning towards my favourite space rock song 'Kaleidoscope' by Rara Avis In Terris. The last 'Black Elk' is orientally aromatic and deeply narcistic ... repetitive heavy movements surely drive us mad.

In conclusion, they adopt their original ethnicity and reasonable pop sense also with linkage towards psychedelic progressive / space rock definition. Will be one of the best progressive rock debut shots in 2017, I suggest?

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
