Prog Reviewer
4 stars So here is a zero cheese factor release which I am sure will fill the bill if you are into heavy classic rock affiliated prog. To best describe "Masque Of Shadows" you must imagine loads of analog synths, organ and piano drenched with deep, complex and precise drumming littered with acid laced guitars and dark bass rhythms. Songs are excellent and seem to never stand still taking on many different identities. YOKE SHIRE are a highly inventive band who deliver a high energy ever-changing crafted progressive music. One of YOKE SHIRE's greatest attributes lies in their originality, attempting to always bring out their own colors and character into the music. Vocals are deep and dark and in many ways haunting ! To give you an idea as to how wide and range YOKE SHIRE play let me acknowledge some of the musical allusions one may derive such as HENDRIX, ZZ TOP, RUSH, Celtic influences, The Psychedelia and even DEEP PURPLE. Overall this album is fine enough to serve in the worlds finest restaurants.
