Romania

Symphress's sophomore album, "Pseudo," weaves complex narratives with symphonic grandeur. The Romanian band, established in 2015 in Cluj-Napoca, retains its distinctive blend of musical genres. This 37-minute odyssey, although consisting of only five tracks, encapsulates an extensive range of styles—from classic progressive rock to contemporary symphonic metal, peppered with cinematic undertones and heavy metal influences. The conceptual depth of the album is rooted in themes such as the Apology of Socrates and the curse of gluttony, as well as warnings about technological perils.

This is an attention-keeping album, with so many twists and turns in styles. For fans of thought-provoking, genre-blending music, "Pseudo" is an essential listen that we hope pushes Symphress' awareness to a broader audience.

All songs are great, with the highlight coming in the middle track, ‘The Golden Pig.’ This is a song that we’ll definitely be featuring on Monday in our 'What’s New Proggy Cats?’ show.

For fans of thought-provoking, genre-blending music, "Pseudo" is an essential listen that we hope pushes Symphress' awareness to a broader audience. It’s an album that everyone should check out, and they can by tuning into Prog Radio where several tracks are now being featured in our New Music rotation, and as mentioned previously, you can also catch this exceptional music in this week’s What’s New Proggy Cats? show on Monday and Tuesday.
