4 stars Hailing from Belorussia, THE WORM OUROBOROS is a recent constellation based out of Minsk. "Of Things That Never Were" is their debut album, and was released in 2013, following a three-year long creative cycle, through the Italian Fading label, a subdivison of noted avant-garde label Altrock Records.

Those who generally find pleasure in bands honing in on retro-oriented progressive rock should find a lot to enjoy on this initial production by The Worm Ouroboros. The core foundation appears to be music in the Canterbury tradition, liberally flavored with typical English symphonic progressive rock of the '70 in general with pointers to bands like Camel and Genesis in particular, but at times with a dark, unnerving undercurrent rather than the more typical whimsical tendencies you expect from a band taking on this musical tradition. A fine album and a fine band, and besides those with an affection for Canterbury-inspired music I'd guess that fans of similar bands like German band Argos should find this CD to be an intriguing experience.

Windhawk | 4/5 |
