The Review:

I had another of my reviewers take on Roz Vitalisí previous release, Das Licht Der Menschen, and after reading what he had to say about the band, I was compelled to hear for myself what Roz Vitalis was all about. I decided to take on their new release Compassionizer to review.

Upon listening to the music which is instrumental based that borders between electronic and the more aggressive progressive rock. To me the opening song "Tragic Fate", shows the listener, especially myself, exactly what Roz Vitalis is capable of. What I heard was a brillant mix of modern King Crimson and Univers Zero.

The music throughout the album is very dark moody and at times has that eerie vibe I hear in the first two Univers Zero albums. That being said, I found the music hard to describe but after several spins now and beyond Iím sure to appreciate Compassionizer more and more. If you enjoy dissonant arrangements combined with dark instrumental prog, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of Compassionizer as soon as possible.
