  • Door de Brexit komen titels die uit de UK afkomstig zijn nog altijd met vertraging binnen. Soms valt het mee en duurt het slechts 2-3 weken, maar het komt helaas ook voor dat we 4 weken of meer moeten wachten.

    OmschrijvingIn 2007 CYDONIA (still called "Hills of Cydonia") was founded. Five musicians from Freiburg, who devote themselves entirely to progressive rock. They concentrate on original songs that mature again and again in the rehearsal room and ensure a repertoire with complex and yet catchy compositions which are intended to take the listener on a musical journey. In their luggage: rousing rock, enchanting melodies, deep atmosphere, spacey improvisations, intricate rhythms, floating bombast, suspenseful songwriting, magical moments. Review Siggy Zielinski - "The prog quintet Cydonia from Freiburg im Breisgau made their debut in December 2022 with the CD "Stations". Originally known as Hills of Cydonia, the band has been playing the instrumental music since 2007 until they found a suitable singer in the person of Michael Bernauer in 2019. The name for the musicians, Cydonia is symbolic of the unknown terrain that one would like to explore musically (this refers to an area on Mars and not to an ancient city, or to a genus of plants, all of which are called Cydonia). Cydonia`s stated goal is to play music from their youth and it is said to have been progressive. Before Cydonia, everyone involved played in various other bands that didn`t necessarily play prog. Lyrically, "Stations" sometimes addresses topics that probably fall into the category of science fiction. The cover features an image that suggests both extraterrestrial and down-to-earth themes. Behind a terrestrial railway station one sees a landscape as if from another planet. The impressive synthesizer contributions sometimes remind me of Eloy. The band again cite Genesis, Yes, Marillion and Porcupine Tree as the major inspirations. On "Stations" Cydonia sticks to a varied mixture of art rock and neoprog, in which the versatile instrumental parts meet the mostly melancholic vocal melodies. In the instrumental sections, the melody-loving guitar themes are always pleasantly noticeable. The organ, piano and synthesizer parts repeatedly seem to form the foundation of the compositions. The first part of "Union of Souls" is again based on lyrical acoustic guitars, as was the case with Genesis, for example. The second part of the 15- minute track is dedicated to a kind of spacey neoprog, as if the musicians from Pink Floyd and IQ were starting a joint project. The oriental accents play an important role in “Caravan Of Slaves”. Incidentally, the last two pieces are older concert recordings, even if you can hardly tell from the sound. As is always the case at concerts, the band is a bit more rocking and spirited than in the studio. Cydonia is more like Deep Purple than Marillion in the jam parts of "Caravan of Slaves". A noteworthy prog sign of life from Freiburg im Breisgau, if you like the predominantly quiet style of melodic prog." Tracklist: 1. Way to Cydonia 7:41 2.
