Description/Reviews
From the next track onwards, Everything That Is You is a nonstop masterclass in not only how to perform but also in how to write complex, instrumental metal that never fails to be exciting or approachable. Further down the line, in the deep bowels of the album, you’ll find more jazz influenced passages, playing around with vocal samples and staccato structures to make sure you’re still around.

Description/Reviews
Art-pop: “progressive rock without the rock attitude”, explains Marek Arnold when I question him further. The instrumentation and the way the songs have been arranged, combined with Manuel Schmid’s interpretation and singing of the lyrics inclines it toward being pop. Yet the heartlands of progressive rock, with its complex chord progressions and unusual sequences, are clearly present and firmly incline it toward being prog. Definitely not ‘Schlager’, he is quick to point out. Art-pop it is.

For his 11th solo recording Dewa Budjana brings his trademark melodic sound imbued of mystic and delicate south-east asian music through even harder edged-progressive flights and raw contemporary rock stirrings. Whether he is moving in the realm of contemporary prog, highly crafted electric jazz or south-east asian traditional music, he never holds any fear that the earth under his feet can turn marshes.

Description/Reviews
"Psyche Remade" starts off the album in a powerful and groovy manner. I can already feel my conciousness expanding! Dr. Space's synth sounds fit in perfectly. There is a more relaxed middle part and then they go again. Great! "Astral Traveller" is another strong, heavy space rock blaster to blow your mind. "Tyhjyyden Mantra" is sung in Finnish and this is maybe closer to the excellent space metal band Tuliterä in style. The sax adds more progressive and ethnic vibes, though.

Description/Reviews
And now they’re back with a second installment (to a trilogy) named Immortality. It feels even more jazzy and exhumes a lot of sixties vibes. It puts the saxophone in a majestic spotlight and Kristian Brink knows how to move around in that diamond shaped glare. Just listen to the Cyclopes And Pine Trees track and feel his whirling dervish dance.
