Progarchives, the progressive rock ultimate discography


Neo-Prog • Russia

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

Nyl biography
The band originated in 1992 when keyboardist Oleg Reznikov and bassist Alexander Bouzlov, members of a Russian rock opera, decided they wanted to develop some musical ideas of their own. It took them a while but they finally recruited drummer Kheifetz some five years later, and then guitarist Alexander Korpusov who would later be replaced by Bogdan Kazakov. Between 2001 and 2004, they took part in various prog festivals in Moscow and St. Petersburg and then went through a gruelling tour of the east of the country that brought them to the Officers' Club of the Revolutionary Armed Forces, at the East Rock Festival in Khabarovsk. In the meantime, Soyuz Music released their self-titled album.

The seven tracks that make up the album are extremely varied, giving the impression the band is experimenting with all kinds of styles: neo prog, art rock, symphonic prog, some pop, even a fusion excursion here and there. Somewhat in the same melodic vein as SAGA, RICOCHER or AVIARY, most tracks are built around a single interesting riff or bass line spiced up with plenty of tasty guitar solos plus very QUEEN-like vocal harmonies (vocals are slightly accented but not enough to be a nuisance). A very promising debut from a band that is bound to find its identity on their next album.

Recommended to fans of SAGA, STYX, JADIS, KAYAK and FOR ABSENT FRIENDS.

Nyl Neo-Prog

Review by maryes

4 stars The Russian band NYL bring to us a very complex mixture of several styles of prog music in a neo- symphonic prog packing. You can perceive a significant influence from Queen, Kayak Styx and some other Arena Rock bands, give to the listener a strong sensation of Deja-Vu.!!! However ,this sensation is very pleasant, due to the competence of the musicians in work with the influences and at the same time reveal a self identity. The albun show a variety of rhythms and melodic lines drastically different in each track., which makes the audition easy! Individually the musicians are very competent, although no one be a virtuoso, the band shows a cleary cohesion . Due to this my rate is 4 stars !!!

4 stars Awesome release from awesome Russian band.At leats I've found Neo-Prog in my land!:-) Great CD (surely,with some lacks:-) - as low budget of record etc),really!It opens with nice "1-2-3-4-5" with some moments ,which have reminded me of QUEEN(or even KANSAS),has awesome "Playing this Game" with IQ-like riffs,but my favourite one is closing "No matter of our Lives",pure neo-prog in MARILLION/COLLAGE/SHADOWLAND- like style!..Highly recommended to all Prog/Neo-Prog lovers:if you are tired with all that modern bands who do not know what they're doing you should try NYL!!!These guys are professionals and they're in prog for almost last 15 years!!!A Musthave for all Neo-Freaks
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition.
