CABINETS OF CURIOSITY is an Eclectic Prog band from Delran, New Jersey formed in 2015 by friends and bandmates James NAPRAWA (guitar) and Jared HIRST (bass) who decided to switch their metal style (VOLT) to a classic progressive rock sound inspired by YES, KING CRIMSON and JETHRO TULL. The pair brought on Anthony WARGA (saxophone), Kristina BACICH (flute), Nat HORNYAK (vocals), Justin JONES (keyboards), and Bran BLACKMIRE (guitar), all recruited from a Craigslist ad.

The band writes its music in an all-inclusive style, with some members being wholly responsible for some tracks while other tracks are written by the entire band. Fortunately, many of the 7 band members are talented songwriters and musicians, plus they share a mutual respect for each others talents. As different members have ideas, they get put into a file sharing program so that the other members can expand on them by adding their own ideas, but many times the songs remain unchanged from the original versions. The band says that their biggest challenge is usually only trying to find space for all 7 members on live gigs.

The band released their debut EP named "EPonymous" in 2016 and their first album "The Chaos Game" in 2019 which is based on an in-progress novel by vocalist Nat HORNYAK. The concept deals with a paralegal named Julia who is called to "The Upper Realm" to destroy and recreate the universe, but things go terribly wrong.

The band has a great love of music and storytelling, and it shows in the details and complexity of their music. Anyone with a love for intelligent, complex and melodic progressive rock music especially along the lines of KING CRIMSON, YES, RUSH, DEVIN TOWNSEND and THANK YOU SCIENTIST and such will love this music.

Review by kurtrongey

3 stars From New Jersey, an intense sci-fi concept album with a penchant for mathematical titles and lyrical themes. There's a lot of stretching into different musical avenues. Production drawbacks keep it from being a totally pleasurable listen, hurt by thunky sample drums, brittle digital piano and strident vocals. Still, worth a listen. They wouldn't be the first band to develop from a promising but flawed debut to later unalloyed brilliance. Best tracks are "Angular Sterility" with its thick, clashy riff layers, the slower and more suspenseful "Doomsday Algorithm," fast meter-switching "Fractometer" and the concluding "The Clockwork Pheasant" with its Watcher of the Skies-derived intro, avalanche of musical detail and even widdly synth.
Thanks to tapfret for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
