The seventh Karda Estra album continues their unique exploration of progressive and classical stylings using both modern and orchestral instruments.
To their trademark classical instrumentation and etheral female voice this time is added some melodic trumpet work and a more uptempo rhythmic feel to the whole album.
Richard Wileman’s subtle acoustic and electric guitar mixes with the bass/keyboards and ensemble work to give haunting and beautiful melodies bound together with strong compositions and great arrangements.
A must for the many fans of the band and those into adventurous and classically inspired prog.
