3 stars It was a relatively long wait, but yet we have another sign of life at hand from a band that is constituted around guitarist Piotr Sym and Mateusz Jagiello as the core since the beginning. I was very much convinced with their debut album, '... they are providing rock songs with finesse and profoundness ...' I noted in 2018. Thus my expectations were high of course after receiving the new promo files. No significant changes concerning the global musical attitude, so much for the first impression. They are from Poland, but actually you can't hear that, lyrics are in English, and Jagiello's vocals are top as usual. With Jake Aubrey there is another drummer involved regarding the production, his parts were recorded in Bath, England. And two additional keyboarder are aboard, which offers more possibilities to consolidate the overall sound.

This four-track EP features new compositions with the intention to set the global mood when it comes to the second studio album, scheduled for the year 2022. I would say the first two songs, taken as an unseparable couple, are representing the non plus ultra regarding the Progressive Rock genre. Including some samples the ambient feel of the intro The Call marks a clever entry to the fulminant main track Vortex, that shines with a sweeping flow and memorable refrain. Setting the focus on a more charming atmospheric and balladesque expression the three-part-suite Cluster and the following Always Here then are enjoyable for sure, but not that exceptional according to my taste. 3.5 stars. All in all 'Calling From Some Far Forgotten Land' comes as a proper appetizer, will be also available in vinyl and CD format.
