4 stars Band Votchi is quite mixed bunch of various genres, styles, influences and sounds. It's from Czech R. which is quite strange, because I wasn't even aware that we have such bands here.

Rock, Metal, Jethro Tull like flute, chorals, everything is here. Rock vocals, eastern influences. The sing in English which helps foreigners to understand what the hell they sing about (but this is quite common in today's Czech work). It's incomparable, because this band uses "Anglo-Saxon" sound with some Czech elements (but I'm not so sure which ones).

In overall, songs are melodic, very complex with strong riffs and in general 'eavy sound. It's also keyboard dominated sound. Yes, conclusion is that this is very eclectic, Heavy sound and as such, this literally combines everything with everything.

There's no brass band music as far as I know.

4(+), even it's perfect, it's not as perfect as it could have been. But don't mind this, because this is just personal feeling.

There's also cover of Maria Magdalena, not bad, but nothing so interesting for me, as I hate the melody. There are three Czech tracks, I hope you will like our language too.

Lyrics of songs are mostly dreamy, magical and free. Yeah, free.
