I have only recently become acquainted with this interesting band .... I'm just wondering if anyone else has come across Karda Estra on their travels? It is masterminded by the creative genius of Richard Wileman with guest musicians/vocalists ... based heavily on classical influences and full of dark brooding landscapes & moods ...I guess it may also appeal to fans of The Enid  ...?

I was never really sure what I was waiting for. When the moment came I was looking away ......

I have heard only a few songs. If I remember correctly it was very classical and silent.

This band seems a bit similar:

There's a review on the front page. Nice but nothing special imo.

I have only heard Voivode Dracula (Count Dracula). It's quite good, reminds a bit of Univers Zero but also of Steve Hackett's moody instrumentals (with electric guitar).

Hey guys.

But right you are Felona, its quite beautiful

If this album are a broad view of their music

And yes....if you like ENID (well who doesnt?)

this might just be for you!!

Just letting you guys know there's a whole album you can download for free (geezer kindly gave me the link) and its by an artist called RAIN and the album is CERULEAN BLUE ...check out the 5 star reviews in the Archives ... I've just finished listening to the album and its absoutely fantastic ... its a very intense, moving album ... with a haunting story  ...   

... just follow the link at the bottom of the webpage which directs you to the free download
