Back in the stone ages when music stores had cut-out bins (ie. surplus albums or cassettes that were sold on the cheap), I used to scan them for album covers that “looked progressive” and buy an unknown band without hearing a single note. It paid off once in a while, but was usually a losing proposition. At only a buck or two, they were worth the risk.
Silhouette’s Across the Rubicon would certainly have caught my attention. The artwork is beautiful, but the material is quite competent and should appeal to symphonic and neo-prog fans. The title “Grendel Memories” is sure to raise an eyebrow for some, it’s actually a pretty good track. Like PTTee by Deeexpus Project, it’s a prog homage tune with heart.
