Art Rock Show – Veil (Week 41)

Richard Wileman is de leadzanger en oprichter van de pre-symfonische rockband Karda Estra uit de VK. De band heeft in de loop der jaren 14 albums uitgebracht. De stijl van Karda Estra is donker en mysterieus, met complexe orkestrale choreografie en een zeker horror gevoel…

Prog Archives review: “The biggest shock is not that Richard has a voice that suits his style of music very well indeed (or vice versa), but that he has kept it hidden for so long? Even going back as far as 1992’s ‘Rattlebones’, I don’t think that Richard has provided vocals on any album, so it must be down to him having such a strong mental image of what the music needed to sound like and his voice had no part to play at all in that. But, on ‘Mephisto Portrait’ for example, his vocals are perfect with the Karda-Estra style of music. True, there is less orchestration than one would normally expect, and in many ways the songs have much simpler arrangements, but the use woodwind fits perfectly.

I guess the one question for me is where to from here? I have always greatly enjoyed Richard’s work, so what will the next album be like? Will it be another under his own name, or will we see something that is more orchestral and like a cinematic soundscape? What it is, I already know that I am going to love it, and look forward to whatever happens next with great interest.”
