The eight Karda Estra album continues their unique exploration of progressive and classical stylings using both modern and orchestral instruments.
Although the tracks are based around their trademark classical instrumentation and ethereal female voice, the music is a little moodier and darker than their previous work.
Richard Wileman's subtle acoustic and electric guitar mixes with the bass/keyboards and classical instrumentation to create haunting and melancholic melodies which adds the emphasis to the strong compositions and great arrangements.
A must for all fans of the band and those into adventurous and classically inspired prog.
