3 stars Finnish band KHATSATURJAN has a history that can be traced all the way to the year 2000, then initially formed as a band for a specific event only, but a short time later this one-event project settled as a regular band unit, releasing their first recorded material as en EP back in 2002. Four full-length studio recordings have been released since that point in time. "Beast, Machine & Man" is the most recent of these, and was issued by Musea Records in 2015.

I applaud the spirit and adventurous approach Khatsaturjan applies to the art of creating progressive rock. There are mishaps and mistakes on this album, and there are details I find lacking in execution, but while one may focus on some weak points, this is also an album that, by and large, is mainly an intriguing one as well. While not a production that can be recommended to those seeking a flawless album, I'd say that those with a certain affection for an adventurous band that broadly fits into a symphonic progressive context might want to investigate this CD, and then especially those who enjoy listening to a band that does have some unexpected details in their repertoire.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
