4 stars Brazilian band CARAVELA ESCARLATE was formed back in 2011, and I understand that the main composer and creative force in the band is keyboardist Ronaldo Rodrigues. The band released an initial album back in 2016, "Rascunho", while they were still a duo. With all members onboard this album was self-released in 2017. The band have now signed to Norwegian label Karisma Records, who will reissue this production for the international market.

Brazil is one of many South American nations where I suspect a lot more is going on in their national music scene than we ever get to know about, including their progressive rock bands. Caravela Escarlate is a fine example of that, as I suspect not all that many fans were aware of this band until Karisma Records decided to pick them up. And for just about anyone with an interest in symphonic progressive rock, this is an album that deserves to be given a spin or three. This is music made with a similar approach as classic era bands of the genre, but with a more contemporary mode of delivery, arrangements and production making it a subtly different and all the more enjoyable total experience. If they continue to develop, this is a band with a bright future in progressive rock circles.
