hardy
All instrumental guitar-driven hard progressive rock which, at times, sounds uncannily like the stuff being churned out by several of the more guitar-heavy post rock bands, either currently active or recently active (e.g., Red Sparowes, Pelican, Russian Circles, Maserati, Saxon Shore, etc.). Not much in the way of soloing... most of this is very tightly arranged and virtually through-composed. Twin guitar leads galore. Energy level is quite high throughout. Good stuff!
Erennge
Great (almost) instrumental jamming guitar-based hard psych/prog Rock, with fantastic ethereal dual guitars. Highly recommended if you like Cargo and/or Wishbone Ash. Another one of those reasons god created headphones and cannabis...

WISHBONE ASH-Meets:Jon Hisemans Tempest*(A.Holdsworth era/not as virtuosic,though!) A perfect meeting of Prog*(gtr.driven)rock-&-the more'jazzy'end of brit bluesy-hard rock.Equall to,and,at times surpassing(!!!)Wishbone Ash,in their prime:I'M kid you not-&- this coming from an accomplished guitsrist:-) -if they'd received proper promotion,+,advantageous tour support*( via appropriate billing,Wishbone Ash?<)They'dve been huge!Lp's very well recorded.Compositions/songs-thoughtfully written.AND-by NO means are AFT a clone of anything.When this first came out,I purchased it as an calculated experiment*(onFamous Charisma label:how couls I go wrong!) A Dave Balls on drums*(? I do not think<<the same Dave Ball as ex-Procol Harum/Bedlam guitarist,btw.-who has some superb post Procol/Bedlam bluesrock cds,out recently:-) !)all in alla really great-great purchase.Very 'multilayered/well played-by all concerned.Highly Recommende.!!!get it while you can.
