Art Rock Show – Toki No Kaze (Week 25)

Bassist Marco Bernard, drummer Kimmo Pörsti en zanger, violist en fluitist Steve Unruh vormen de harde kern van The Samurai Of Prog, een band binnen ons geliefde genre. De één is een in Finland wonende Italiaan, de ander een rasechte Fin en nummer drie woont in de Verenigde Staten. Samen met een (groot) aantal gastmuzikanten maken ze symfonische rock in de stijl van de jaren zeventig.

Prog Archives review: “This album is truly magical and it’s an invitation for a fantastic musical journey, it’s so rich in visual soundscapes and has all the elements to be considered a masterpiece!

All the beauty and majesty of the vintage prog music is here,rich instrumentals and wonderful arrangements, great performances and superbe voices! The perfect balance between the instrumental compositions and the vocal tracks is just perfect! It’s absolutely impressive the marvelous combination between the vocal and instrumental tracks, the sensation of unity and cohesion is perfect!
