Debut EP of Sylvium. In 2012 The band consisst of guitarist Ben van Gastel and Fred Boks, who played bass, drums and keyboards. This short CD was self-published in early 2012. The duo played an emphatic and modern-sounding Heavy Prog with some great guitar work and a few symphonic ambiances placed between the more powerful moments.The
music is all instrumental, only a few sporadic spoken parts appear actually during the second track, with excellent, atmospheric grooves and angular lead guitars, accompanied by spacey, orchestral keyboards and a solid rhythm section.Echoes
of contemporary Prog with the use of some sound effects and loops are also in the menu, while the more synth-drenched parts have a discreet Neo Prog vibe.Melody
is not absent either, especially during the dreamy closing moments of the last and longest track, and a good balance has been kept throughout a fresh Heavy Prog album with some very nice guitar parts.
