The Review:

It never ceases top amaze me on how many submissions by talented bands come across my desk. The latest one to arrive is by a Japanese band called Fantasmagoria, an all-instrumental quintet, led by Miki Fujimoto on violin. Musically they are similar to KBB but the comparisons soon stop since Fantasmagoria tends to stray away from the symphonic style more into the fusion with some angular moments.

The cd is rather short with 5 songs, so it leaves the listener wanting to hear more but if this is any indication on their sound then the best is yet to come. Remember this is a live demo even though it sounds very much like a finished product. Itís officially available as a release from Vital! Records (A subsidiary of Poseidon records, home of KBB !) Keep your ears and eyes out for Fantasmagoria, they will be the talk of every progressive rock forum online.
