We just happened to stumble across this band on our random trawl on YouTube and being fan of progressive metal, this is what we found coming out of Russia. The Debut EP of Above The Earth is quite refreshing seeing that not a lot of female vocalists work with this genre of music. Aleksandra’s angelic vocals are so mesmerizing on every track. Sure give some pop stars a run for their money 😉 Arsafes guitar skills are pretty amazing. So all in all, quite a great combination.
The production level on this EP is out there with the big names featuring some big names as featured guests. We’d like to see them live some day (if they do decide to visit South Africa). Be sure to keep up to date with them on their social network pages.
We purchase our copy of this EP and must say, it’s worth every penny. Get your copy over on their Bandcamp page
