CD
Post progressive rock/metal/fusion – NEW ZEALAND

Out of Auckland, New Zealand comes a band Shepherds Of Cassini, active from 2012 year. After a year of existence, they released a self-titled debut, and during the July of previous 2015, a second full-length entitled “Helios Forsaken”, looked the light of day.

New Zealand band work as a quartet with violin in its line-up. All of group members are prominent performers, with clear idea about musical conception. They have offered a strong sound, with often guitar and violin instrumental includings, attractive arangments, and modern production as well.

SHEPHERDS OF CASSINI..Band PictureThey also “create” something different, cos’ a band’s version of  progressive and metal mixing elements, as a result produce something fresh and new. Good balance between vocal includings and instrumental parts charaterize its longest songs too. In the final, they are listenable, and musically convinceble. Very recomandable.


Iz Aucklanda, Novog Zelanda dolazi relativno novi akt, formiran 2012-e godine – Shepherds Of Cassini. Nakon godinu dana delovanja, objavljuju istoimeni album, da bi tokom jula 2015-e, realizovali drugi full-length naziva “Helios Forsaken”.

Funkcionišu kao kvartet, a u postavi imaju violinu. Česti dueli gitare i violine karakterišu njihov stil, koji je bogat sjajnim aranžmanskim pristupom i modernom produkcijom. Sva četiri člana postave su vrsni instrumentalisti, a u žanrovskom smisu uspeli  su da donesu nešto, može se reći novo i sveže. To je jedna posve raznovrsna i do sada gotovo ne prisutna varijanta post progressive i metala,  koji su začinjeni fusion detaljima.

Njihove pesme takođe karakterišu pravilan i dobro postavljen balans između vokalnih i instrumentalnih delova. Može se sa pravom reći da su jednako slušljivi i ubedljivi.  Muzika sa albuma je vrlo preporučjiva, i ukoliko vam se ukaže prilika, obratite pažnju na bend.
