If Pink Floyd and The Mars Volta had a baby, and that baby grew up listening to heavy metal and punk, and then formed a rock band, that band would be The Grand Astoria​. Speaking of the Mars Volta, Kamille Sharapodinov reminds me of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez in terms of both his creativity and the frequency with which he produces truly new music.
If you are really paying attention you will not be able to turn this masterpiece off, and will have to agree that although there is no proper category for this music, it is undeniably heavy. The Grand Astoria has Led-Zeppelin-like importance for me in terms of how they have altered my perspective on heavy music, and I consider them one of the best rock bands of all time. Here is “Curse of the Ninth”, a tribute to the myth that a classical music composer’s ninth symphony would end up being their last - HEAVY METAL TEXTBOOKS BLOGSPOT

This might very well be a personal candidate for 2015 album of the year. The Mighty Few is the sixth album from this large scale ensemble from St. Petersburg, Russia. Reviewing this is like describing the indescribable. The album consists of two verrrrry long tracks. The band touches on 70s retro hard rock, psych, metal, prog rock, avant garde jazz - that's within each track. Stylistically they keep shifting and it all melds together very coherently which will become jaw dropping when you hear them pull it off. The band cites Pink Floyd and Mars Volta as influences. Sure but also toss in a ton of other bands like Magma and Weather Report. Instrumentation includes guitars, keys, flute, clarinet, sax, percussion, and drums. Oh yeah - vocals are in english and are great! A total ripper from beginning to end. Buy or die! - LASER CD DISTRO

This is a fine release from The Grand Astoria which demonstrates why they’ve built up a fervent cult following, now I’ve experienced their progressive madness I will be paying keen attention in future - SLUDGELORD
