Cyrax: Have inserted the most disparate genres…..

Cyrax - Experience

The band states, «We are proud to present our new video: filmed at the medieval abbey of Morimondo and in the abandoned park of Consonno, (almost entirely in black and white style), this video is inspired by Alban Berg’s Opera and German expressionist movies, such as Nosferatu and Metropolis, of which also takes up themes such as madness, depression and the horror of war». The track Wozzeck (Experience),

The band comment:

«It is with deep pride that after five years of silence we are preparing to release a new album with a new label.  Experiences, like the title suggests, is a mixture of musical paradoxes, stylistic oxymorons, a cauldron where we have inserted the most disparate genres: Celtic, death metal, thrash, jazz fusion, rock prog, bluegrass and.. Stravinsky!».

Cyrax is the meeting of inventive Italian musicians living in the neighborhoods of Milan. All begins in 2013, when Marco Cantoni was intended to realize a heavy metal album: he meets Antonio Rubuano and Paolo Musazzi, and they instantly start writing music. Based on some original Marcos Cantoni’s ideas, Cyrax’s songs were written in early 2013, gradually assuming strong progressive and experimental traits. The track Dorian Grey,

 During that time a young singer, Davide De Stefano, offered important contributions in writing vocal lines and drawing the copious choirs characterizing Cyrax’s music. At the beginning of 2013 Cesare Ferrari and Paolo Biocchi joined the project. In March the group records its debut album, Reflections, which has been worldwide published in October 2013 by Musea Records. The track Oró Sé do Bheatha ‘Bhaile,

About Ulf Backstrøm (7159 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
