    OmschrijvingAnyone who has dealt with the Canadian music scene in the past, will not be entirely unknown to such illustrious names as Bachmann Turner Overdrive, Saga, Rush, FM, Gino Vanelli, among others, but also Mystery and The Musical Box. However, even though the band has already released their now fifth studio album called "The Fold", the Monceau- born Karcius is likely to lag behind. Already the previous albums "Sphere" (2004), "Kaleidoscope" (2006), "Episodes" (2008) and "The First Day" (2012) took one or the other good criticism from the reviewers. Especially the mix of Fusion, Hard Rock, Pop, African, Classical, Jazz, Retro Prog and Ambient stands for the progressive difference. If the previous albums were more than just an insider tip for some, perhaps the Canadians will now be able to make another small step into popularity. At first still instrumental on the way, the singer and bassist Sylvain Auclair brings a very special note into the musical performance of the band. Thomas Brodeur (Drums, Loops Programming, Shakers, Hand Claps, Triangles) and Simon L`Esperance (Acoustic and Electric Guitars, Lap Steel, Additional Programming, Bass Synth, Synth Pads) provide the necessary consistency as founding members. Most recently, the former keyman of Hamadryad, Sebastien Cloutier (Guitar, Piano, Fender Rhodes, Hammond B3, Synthesizers) joined the band. On the alignment and implementation of the music but had no negative impact. On the contrary, Karcius is still characterized at the same time by power and fragility, sometimes loudly quiet. Sylvain Auclair with his often sensitively delicate-sounding voice, in constant change with the sometimes brutal hardness of the guitars, succeeds in skilfully combining these superficial contrasts. Nevertheless, it is above all the quiet passages that create a special fascination and a correspondingly pleasant atmosphere. "The Fold" is a classic concept album. The six titles deal with the question: "What if our perception of reality could be interpreted as a form of dementia?" In the process, texts and compositions blend into images, scenes and soundscapes. Attentive consideration of the musical oeuvre gives the impression that the musicians are always on the look-out to develop different musical ideas and to mix styles in order to create ever-new song structures. Karcius succeeds in combining the elements of hard rock, jazz rock, fusion and RetroProgs in an almost playful way. Wanted or cramped, nothing works here. Karcius does her job exactly as one would expect from modern artists of the genre, always good for surprises and a guarantee for a rapid change of mood. There is only one thing left to say: keep it up!
