The Review:

Karcius’ new album Kaleidoscope is my first exposure to the band. Karcius is an instrumental band that combines elements of fusion, metal and some hints of progressive metal. They first hit the scene with their debut Sphere in 2004. Unfortunately I haven’t heard it so I can’t make a proper comparison. Of what I do know, the band is by far one of the best to surface on the Unicorn Digital label and the progressive music world.

The band consists of bassist Dominique Blouin, guitarist Simon L'Esperance, drummer Thomas Brodeur, and keyboard player Mingan Sauriol. Karcius falls in perfectly with the other bands on the label mainly with their ability to combine with ease a jazz band with the intensity of a heavy rock or metal band, The end result is a high energetic, melodic, and complex music that runs the gambit over the course of the entire album.

Every track has an amazing feel to it that makes it hard to pick a favorite. I would definately recommend this band and album to fans of Planet X, Liquid Tension Experiment as well as label mates Spaced Out and Kopecky.
