Bastian Per’s album ´Epic Journey´ has been described as “hard to tell it’s a debut” because of it’s off-the-charts production. The album combines the influence of well-known Prog bands with a strong AOR vibe that gives a very intriguing turn to the equation.
´Epic Journey´ has had an incredible response so far, reviewed in several internationally recognized magazines such as PROG, which place the band close to Dream Theater, Rush, Threshold, Metallica, etc.
“The musicianship here is of the virtuoso variety - the complex time signatures of instrumental Beginner´s Luck would give Dream Theater a run for their collective money. Bastian Per is most definitely one to watch in future” - PROG Magazine UK (Issue #100).
“The track Confrontation sounds like a bonus track from `Metropolis - Part 1: The Miracle And The Sleeper`. This is an excellent debut from Bastian Per and I ́m looking forward to album number two already.” - Fireworks Magazine UK (Issue #88).
“The melodic twist they have introduced gives the record that touch of uniqueness. The music on this album is as good as there is out there now in this genre.” - Powerplay Magazine UK (Issue #225).
The album has a very strong AOR vibe that cannot be diminished, listening to the complete 52 minutes in the presented order will give you a sweet taste of the musical journey intended to create, and with it, a whole lot of emotions offering light and shade from some heavy riffing.
This raises the question: What are you waiting for to give it a listen?
