Vōlker Ant, a dark symphonic prog band with a female lead from France, has made a striking entrance with their debut album "Orion." This album is an impressive blend of dark, yet stunning symphonic elements that avoid cliché, offering a rich and varied listening experience. The album's artistry, hinted at by its captivating cover, suggests a fusion of Tori Amos' intensity with the depth of symphonic prog, yet it surpasses expectations with its unique richness.

Spanning 11 tracks over a concise 40 minutes, "Orion" is a meticulously crafted journey from start to finish, demonstrating a rare coherence and attention to detail for a debut. It's the kind of album that invites and rewards repeated listens, promising to become a topic of conversation among prog enthusiasts.

"Orion" by Vōlker Ant is nothing short of a masterpiece, strong words for a debut album, but words I am confident I won’t be regretting. It's an album poised to make waves, not just for its musical excellence but as a herald of a promising new talent in the symphonic prog scene.

Listeners can anticipate hearing a significant portion of this album on Prog Radio. It has also earned the distinction of being the only debut album to have featured four of its tracks in a single week on "What’s Up Proggy Cats?" This recognition underscores the album's exceptional quality and its potential to quickly become a staple in the prog community.
