Line-up
Daan Dekker (Earth Pulse) - Vocals
Kay Bouten - Guitars
Boris Suvee - Bass
Remco Van Der Veen - Keyboards
Rico Noijen (Earth Pulse) - Drums

Description/Reviews:
Music that has evolved and perhaps slightly changed since their previous album; Master Device & Slave Machines (2017). One of the reasons for this change is the absence of one of the initial members, songwriter and guitar player Wouter van der Veen, who has left the band and was replaced by newcomer Kay Bouten. Kay's guitar playing is a bit more metal and alternative than the heavy progressive approach of his predecessor. The other change are the songs itself. In my opinion, the band has left the well paved paths of progressive rock and metal and found themselves on the outskirts of powerful metal. Armed Cloud seems to be more extreme than before.

Jakob Graf von Thun - drums
   With:
Marja Burchard - vibraphone (1)
Sascha Lüer - saxophone (4)

Description/Reviews:
Karaba’s album starts with a slightly arabic feel. The repetitive groove of “Der Inder” gets the listener immediately into a different south-eastern space. Later the music gets more animated, more structured and more uplifting. A whole universe of little influences. Shades of certain Jazz and prog-rock bands: you might think about the canterbury scene of the 1960ies and 70ies. There are textures reminding of Soft Machine, Frank Zappa, Mats and Morgan, Kraan and maybe some Passport influences. (Another band from Munich that left a huge footmark in the worldwide jazz fusion history).
The whole Karaba sound has a certain 1970es feel. But not in a pure retro way. The LP sounds more like a modern psychedelic 2020 Lofi Indie Jazz thing – a sound that fits well in these wild times and finds its place in the actual scenario of new jazz bands worldwide.

Description/Reviews:
The group ... play improvised, instrumental and unflinchingly exploratory cosmic rock. Veering between the already-blurry lines that border heavy psychedelia, classic-style prog and Hawkwindian space fare. ... That might make Four Riders Take Space Mountain particularly engaging for newcomers, and where some other releases in the vast swath thereof pull from different sessions and offer what feel like extended sections of broader works or are just executed with various aims on their own, the fact that “Approach,” “Ascent” and “Summit” move so smoothly ... and flow so righteously between active and atmospheric sections, ..., as well as the sheer sense of float that comes with the arrival at “Summit,” means that Four Riders Take Space Mountain is a standout even among the band’s other work in being a joy to follow through its progression.

Description/Reviews:
On Fear however, one will get a potpourri of Prog, Post Rock, Psychedelic, Krautrock, Fusion and Zeuhl, which is in its entirety everything else than chaotic. Fear actually sounds quite homogenous and has an almost soundtrack-like flow, whereas the cinematic part rather dips in TV series sound tracks of the 70s.

Purely instrumental, the trio combines in its music elements of rock and jazz and produces out of the whole a rebellious mixture of progressive postrock on drums, bass and keys. It is a dynamic record, marked by its powerful and rhythmically complex compositions, not to speak of some forceful heavy metal outbursts
