Lest biography
LEST is a heavy prog band based in Oberkirch, France, that was founded by bassist Pascal RAMEIX, guitarist and vocalist Sebatien MAUVE, and drummer Kickers in 1995. The band was mostly underground when they first formed, simply writing and rehearsing music influenced by the last four decades of progressive music. It wasn't truly until 2008 when the band emerged as a live act, playing around France. In 2011, the band was signed by ELOY's record label Artist Station and released their debut album, Odysseus that same year.

The band plays a creative form of heavy prog, mixing RUSH's power-trio forms with an ELOY and MARILLION symphonic psych prog sound. The band will appeal to fans of more retro prog rock, as the band heavily cites classic prog bands.

Lest Heavy Prog

Review by b_olariu

4 stars Lest is one of the lesser known progressive rock acts from France, who released only in 2011 the first album, eventhe band exists since 1995. Odysseus is the name of their first offer and I might say a pretty solid and intresting one to my ears. The music even has diffrent influences like from bands as Muse, Eloy, Marillion, Rush , Lest manage to come with a great debut. Long pieces , very well constructed, specially the guitar and keyboards are awesome on every tune. Also the vocalist Sebastien Mauve has a very good voice going hand in hand with the epic eclectic kind of prog rock, his voice sometimes is very similar with Muse vocalist Matthew Bellamy. Every tune is great, no dull moments here, like it from the first listning, Light fantastic or the title track shows that Lest needs a far better recognition, somehow they gone unnoticed worldwide and belive me the album is totaly awesome. From me easy 4 stars.
Thanks to nightfly for the artist addition.
