Ticket to the Moon picture
Ticket to the Moon biography
TICKET TO THE MOON were formed in 2003 by Andy (Andrea PORTAPIA) and Danny GOSTELI based on an original concept directly influenced by progressive music. Things started to get serious when Matt ZWICK (Keys) and Simon (Vocals) joined and a first demo was recorded in a small studio near Basel, Switzerland. As the singer left the band in 2007, Andy and Danny decided to take over the vocal parts. A year later, Gys (Guillaume CARBONNEAU)(Bass) joined and consequently completed the band. Together they played several shows in Switzerland and decided then to record their first album. So in May 2012 TICKET TO THE MOON and sound engineer Brett Caldas-Lima worked on their debut ''Dilemma On Earth'' at Tower-Studio in Montpellier, France. In November 2012 the album was released in front of a thrilled crowd. Just two weeks later, the success of the album release gig helped them to be booked as the supporting act for the well-known Canadian neo-prog band SAGA where the band celebrated the evening with 800 excited prog-fans.

The sound of the band is on the verge of heavy progressive rock and progressive metal, often resembling to HAKEN, ENCHANT, DREAM THEATER, having a powerful yet melodic character and comes highly recommended for prog metal fans.

3 stars Swiss band TICKET TO THE MOON was formed back in 2003, with a firm line-up stabilizing in 2007. They are an active live band as well as recording artists, and so far they have two albums to their name. "Ae Sense of Life" is the most recent of those, and was self-released in 2016.

Those fond of concept albums of the kind where the entire album plays out as one composition rather than as a collection of songs should find many interesting points to this second album by these Swiss proggers, and then especially those who tend to fancy a band that, roughly speaking, moves back and forth between later day Floydian landscapes and territories closer to progressive metal of the Dream Theater variety. The vocals are something of an acquired taste however, so those who know they are sensible to the quality of the lead vocals might approach this one with some caution. But apart from that aspect this is a fine album within this subset of the progressive rock genre.

4 stars Now, this is a kick ass young band from Switzerland named Ticket to the Moon and their first offer from 2012 named Dilemma on earth. Really pleasent surprised by this debute, the 4 musicians involved here, really know to handle the instruments and create something worth investigated. I was simply amazed how easy they play, and how they manage to combine the more edgy passages with the melodic ones, impressive, they have such a great sense of melody, beautiful guitar works for sure. Also the vocal parts are truly amazing, such strong vocal lines are quite hard to find today. Great druming, excellent song writting, the keyboard player works as a swiss clock and offers some memorable keyboard passages. The guitar parts are truly impressive, the melodic lines are amazing, from mellow floydian like parts to more riffy towards prog metal, this band done it with this album. Forte pieces are to me opening track Earth, A Black & White Picture of a Rainbow with beautiful haunting vocal passages, very strong, Dilemma, in fact all are strong. This is the type of prog metal I like a lot with lots of prog rock influences, is not the kind of never ending shereding neoclassical noodling album like many prog metal bands have in their sound today, is excactly what I like on prog metal, inventive, killer musicianship and excellent vocals. This is a real gem of a debute. 4 stars easy, kick ass album and very nice art work.
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
