Progressive Rock & Progressive Metal - Logo
. OCTOBER 2005
D'arcana is a concept of modern Prog with a strong leaning towards classic 70's styles, the music style from the band are a modern grandly orchestrated Symphonic Progressive Rock, including classical influences with touchs into the folk style, sometimes melodic, sometimes a little bit heavy. Their music has envolved to a whole new and much superior level with colorful arrangements, especially with the work on the lyrical guitar which is often, even mostly melodious in all moments, combining with tons of orchestral keyboards. The strong points of the disc lie in the beauty of the voice and the arrangements and the incredible musical emotions, where they keep the music intense capable of attracting the attention of the listener. If you want some references, D'arcana´s music is inspired by a whole host of classic Prog acts ranging from "Yes" to "Kayak", early  "Genesis", "Van der Graaf Generator", "King Crinson", "Jethro Tull", and even a bit of "Pink Floyd/Roger Waters", where the references are still intact. This is definitely the most played album at my home at the moment. Brilliant and an indispensable work, highly recommendable...

Jay Tausing - Vocals, Guitars, Synths, Cello, Sax and Drums 
Shelby Snow - Bass, Vocals and Percussion
