When it comes to post-ROCK, look no further than Spain. They have an abundance of brilliant bands like Astralia, Audiolepsia, Toundra, JaunDone and Blak, to name a few. And Syberia is no exception. Blilliant album, excellently performed. Hightly recommended.
Favorite track: Black Olympics.
The mesmerising second album from Barcelona’s SYBERIA represents a new dawn following a period of heightened turmoil. Both head and body music, “Resiliency” documents a mental and spiritual transformation where darkness and light are both essential to the transmission of ideas.
Interspersing influences from across the full spectrum of instrumental rock/metal, dream pop and shoegaze, the band juxtapose order and grace with notions of cathartic freedom - finding liberation in beautiful, uplifting melodies that never lapse into over-sentimentality.
SYBERIA combine swathes of yearning, crashing crescendos with the serene and pastoral. Tremolo octaves create stately themes from chord progressions which catch you with their heartbreak - ever-questing, hypnotic guitars bring sunlight underpinned by the creeping sense of a tumultuous and complex inner world poised to surface.
Dream-like synths and subtle electronic touches create a wide-screen timelessness dotted with barbs and traps, undercurrents of wistful unease which explode into powerfully devastating passages.
“Resiliency” is exhilarating filmic Rock which, by the album’s poignant conclusion, will have realigned and reinvigorated you without struggle.
It is said that the name of the coldest area in Russia comes from the Turkish words for “asleep land”. Anyhow, Syberia
instrumental rock music gives off such a warmth and instrumental intensity that they attracted our attention from the very first minute. Dreamy passages and explosions of real magic.
Just gave the vinyl a spin and I just wanted to thank the powers that be for pressing this release. It’s beautiful and an absolute classic, start to finish. My most played release on Spotify for the last handful of years, and now I have it in my physical collection. 💚 Calvin McRoy
This record was the one that made me lose myself to the band. Asa screamed for attention, Vorel rocked hard, but Moia made me smile and cry at the same time. If you're looking for an album by the band to warm up to, pick this one up! s/he knows
Je ne possède aucun disque metal instrumental. Sauf celui-ci. Et pour un gros fan de voix comme moi, ça en dit long.
Pour la faire courte, le son est ENORME, et les riffs sont légendaires. Envoûtant. gregory duveau
