The band aims at solemn and desolate ‘Picturesque Music’. Combining a wide variety of styles from 70′s Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Progressive Rock, and Folk/Trad, their unique style with its dark elements may be known as ‘Landscape Rock’. With a sound much bigger than the sum of their parts, "Pathfinder" is a strong label debut full of carefully crafted music, depth, musical richness and emotion with a dark foreboding presence that will find favour with fans of Opeth, Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Day Six, The Gathering, The Wishing Tree etc.
